Nora introduced to us the star product, the Shu Uemura UV underbase which evens out skin and helps dissolve dirt that has accumulated on the face. She then applied base makeup and set everything with powder. After which, she proceded to the eyes.
She applied a cream eyeshadow in a neutral color from lashline to browbone to act as a base and a neutral-colored powder shadow on the outer browbone for highlight. She also advised us not to apply the highlight on the entire browbone area as that could have a hooded effect on the eye, especially for us monolids.
Thanks Yeoh for this picture! And here's a picture of Yeoh just for the event:
This event also introduced to us the Shu Uemura Learning Atelier, wherein anyone could learn makeup, skincare, and the latest trends. Classes are usually maximum of 5 and would be conducted by the brand's accredited makeup artists. These classes would be held at the Shu Uemura Boutique at the Powerplant mall in Rockwell.
There would be three modules namely:
1. Discovery (Php 6,000) which addreses basic on skincare and makeuip application.
2. Explore (Php5,500) - tips on foundation, coloc correctors, and professional techniques on contouring and my absolute OC-ness and favorite: lash and brow styling
3. Aspire (Php 5,000) - latest trends in makeup and advice on the best ways to ude the brand's tools and products to achieve avante garde looks as well as makeup artists' signature looks.
Each participant will be presented with a Shu Uemura Learning Atelier book and a starter kit as part of the module (yay!). Birthday coming up in a few weeks so maybe hmm....:-?
Anyway... after the event, I decided to give Yeoh a belated birthday gift and a thank-you gift:
I got him foundation for his shade since he needs basic foundation for his go-sees and some of his shoots. :) It's also a congratulatory gift too for a TVC and a fashion show. :) Then we met up with Mike for dinner and surely had a lotta good time. :)
