Catwalk Cosmetics Makeup Workshop: BATCH 1 Makeovers
I’m so proud of my Batch 1 students!! They were very fun and easy to teach and all of them were able to apply the techniques perfectly using makeup from MAYBELLINE. Our photos prove that you don’t need to spend a lot to get good quality makeup because Maybelline can do the job. Everyone was also impressed at how bright the colors from Catwalk Cosmetics are with just one swipe! Thanks to Mylene Chung of The Living Room Studios for the wonderful makeover photos!
Brynn’s Day Makeup won her a gift pack from GARNIER for having the most natural look. Her transformation is AMAZING!
Bea was a very fast learner. She was able to follow all the instructions given to her without any follow-ups!
Pat wasn’t able to have a “before” shoot because she arrived late. Nevertheless, she won a foundation brush and bowl from SUESH COSMETIC TOOLKIT for being the best subject. (perfect photo on the first shot)
Melissa got to take home a gift pack from GARNIER too by giving the perfect answer to one of my makeup and skin care trivias.
I still owe Lei a gift because she researched what “the skin/part behind our palm” is called. I told the group I’d send out anyone that was able to find out because that part is always used but no one knows what it’s called. XD
Joyce bagged BIZU GCs from the “Colorful Macaroons” contest by having the most colorful and best Night look.. Just like their macaroons!
Rachel was shy and quiet but wasn’t afraid to ask questions so she got to address all her concerns and achieved well-blended smokey eyes!
Vanessa was also able to apply makeup naturally. She had a no-makeup day look while her night makeup accentuated her pretty Chinita features.
Lyssandra is the youngest among all my students. She looked like Kim Chiu after getting all dolled up! As you can see, I encouraged everyone to use bright colors for night look instead of the usual and *boring* smokey black colors. That’s why my tag line is “Everyday is a Runway”. ;)
For those who weren’t able to join our first 2 batches, here’s a sneak peek to our classroom set-up. Thanks to MAYBELLINE NEW YORK for all the classroom makeup and SUESH for the brushes and mirrors.
Tools I used for demonstration. All the goodies at the back were given away as prizes. Thanks to Garnier, Nivea & Maybelline for being so generous!
Everyone had big smiles when they got their hands on the Catwalk gift bags. Each one of them got to take home Catwalk Cosmetics Runway Eyeshadow & Blush Palette and products/ Gift Certificates from our partners.
But that’s not all! ..Guess what we had for our snacks?!
I was surprised when I picked up the food from BIZU. I was expecting small finger food or cakes but they sent us beautifully packed Grilled Chicken with Sundried Tomato Pesto Cream in Focaccia with Potato Crisps. Mye and I were so full until dinner time. Haha!
Every student got to take home Macaroon canisters too! Bizu Patisserie has the BEST macaroons in Manila. That’s not an opinion; it’s a fact. My workshop wouldn’t have been complete without these goodies because their macaroons are as colorful as my eyeshadow palettes.
The makeup classes were supposed to be offered during summer only but due to popular demand from people tweeting and texting me to open another class next month, I’ll be holding one LAST workshop this July 2. Unlike the previous classes, I’ll be accepting 50% deposit (P2,250) to secure a slot instead of full payment and the rest can be paid on the day itself. I want to give way to those who are still studying or saving up for this workshop.
We will have a maximum of 10 students only so reserve a slot now by texting your FULL NAME and E-MAIL address to 0917-8929289.
I hope everyone from Batch 1 and 2 had fun!! Can’t wait for Batch 3! :)

BARE IT ALL: Lay Bare Anniversary Party
I have been loyal to Lay Bare Waxing salon since the first time I tried their bikini wax thanks to the BDJ coupon back in 2008. Since then, I’ve tried all their other services including the *ultimate* full body wax from head to toe. So when I got an invite to their anniversary party last February at Hard Rock Cafe, I was soo excited especially after reading the attire: AS BARE AS POSSIBLE. I’m not a fan of daring/showy outfits so I was challenged to look for a “bare” ensemble without having to show too much skin. This is what I found in my closet:
Unfortunately, when Val and I arrived, we only reached the ending remarks and awarding ceremony. :( The invites said 6pm but Val (http://quietgirl.net) and I arrived a little past 7pm. I got home late from the office and had to fix myself so we ended up arriving TOO fashionably late. *shame* But I also know a few others who didn’t even make it to the closing remarks. Let this be a lesson to us, ladies! :) Regardless of that, I saw that people enjoyed the event and I was happy to finally meet one of the owners, Ms. Fiona. We’ve been in contact since January 2008 but we were only able to talk to each other in person there. We also met Jeff Siy of http://boy-kuripot.blogspot.com before we left for Izakaya. We ended up at Brian Tenorio’s event. :)
