For years I have been thinking about enrolling in a makeup workshop but I never had the chance to do it. For one thing, I always seem to run out of money (LOL!) and I just really didn’t have the time for it.
Last month, Glamourbox announced that some of those who availed their Special Edition Avon Box will have a chance to take part in their exclusive makeup workshop (in partnership with Avon Cosmetics). Fortunately, I was one of the lucky few chosen to attend their workshop so, of course, I wasn’t going to pass that up even though the location was quite far from my place – Bottega Studio @ Katipunan Avenue, Quezon City. Who wouldn’t want to grab this opportunity?!? We had the pleasure of learning several beauty tips and tricks from Ms. Au Mauricio (Fashion & Celebrity Makeup Artist) – all for FREE!! 🙂
It was quite an intimate group. Other than the Glamourbox team, the Avon representative, and Ms. Au Mauricio, there were probably just about 12 of us there.
Ms. Au was very nice and very approachable. She entertained all our questions, she even joked with us and shared some celebrity beauty secrets (hehe!) and most importantly, she made our learning experience so much fun and definitely memorable. 🙂
I was in awe just looking at her makeup collection. It was massive and I was jealous. Hahaha!
This workshop enabled me to enhance whatever knowledge I have on makeup application. Ms. Au taught us how to properly apply makeup on each area of our face and she also taught us which brushes we should use. Apart from that, she also gave us great advice on some of the best cosmetic brands in the market.
There were just so much to learn that I actually recorded several videos of her makeup tutorial. I even saved a lot of notes on my Iphone. Hihihi!
*My friends might wonder how in the world was I able to pose with Ms. Au and her dog… but let me tell you… my heart was pumping and beating rapidly that time. Haha! I’d like to point out that I don’t hate dogs… I’m just REALLY afraid of ALL animals. If I wasn’t, I would love to own a dozen dogs as pets. Hehe!
Another awesome thing about this makeup workshop is that we were also given a beauty loot bag filled with some of Avon’s newest beauty products. Nice!
Let me show you each one:
I’m happy to get this Kabuki brush for free. I just wished that it came with a cover so that I can bring it anywhere.
It’s a non-drying gel cleanser that is formulated to effectively remove makeup, excess oil and surface impurities. It helps refine skin’s texture for a visibly smoother and softer appearance.
This toner helps skin fight the signs of stress and fatigue. It instantly boosts the skin’s hydration by 109% and provides long lasting moisturizing.
This night cream helps renew and energize dull, overtired, stressed-looking skin.
Just like the night cream, this day cream also helps renew and energize the look of dull, overtired, stressed-looking skin.
**I’m actually happy that I was able to get their full line of Anew Vitale products. This way, I get to see how effective it is on my skin.
It gets rid of shine and gives a matte finish.
This is a 2-in-1 brow liner with brush – perfect for shaping and sculpting.
It’s a retractable and self-sharpening eye liner – just the way I like it!
So there you go… all these products I got for free. The total value of all the products is a little over Php2400. Suffice to say… I was really very satisfied, very happy, and very lucky to have attended the makeup workshop. All thanks to Glamourbox. 🙂
