Yesterday was my first time ever to go to a makeup session, and to be more precise, it was with one of my favorite Bahraini makeup blogger The Makeup Manual by Mai Al Moayyed, to know more about Mai please Click Here. Had the best makeup class ever with her, she made everything easier for us and how to keep our makeup simple yet gorgeous... In her 3 hours full basic makeup class, you don’t need any previous makeup knowledge, you will learn all the neccessary basics from A-Z. In her class, we can either sit down and watch and learn, or we bring our own makeup and apply along with her through all the steps... I personally wrote soo many good notes that are new to me so I can empliment them and to buy the products needed.
These are some of the things that was covered in the makeup class, how to properly remove and cleanse our face from makeup, moisturising the face, full explenation of all important brushes and their uses, how to choose the proper foundation and concealer and how to apply and blend it flawlessly, how to highlight and contour the face, how to put a soft daily eye look, and how to clean the makeup brushes. Finally, we got the chance to ask her anything, and she was excited to answer all of our makeup and beauty related questions.
Here are some of the pictures I took before, during, and after the class...
She prepared all the papers for us with all the neccessary makeup tools and cleansers.
My table with my little cuppy cakes note book and hello kitty pen =p
A very small part of the makeup she has... I want them ALL, lol... =$
A small peek in her makeup drawers...
Her M.A.C brushes.. <3
And more brushes, I assume that some of them are Sigma brushes *sigh* -I have a long story with the Sigma brushes, If you are following me on Twitter you would know about my sad story- ... ='(
She also provided us with some mini bites and drinks...
Chocolate dessert, what a lovely girl she is... <3
The mess by the end of the class... =D
I want to share one of the very important thing that I have learned from her that I was sort of clueless about, and I know that probably most of you might know about, which is; I have never thought of cleaning my brushes, since I'm not that much of a makeup girl -But now I'm in love with makeup and willing to learn everything that has to do with it-, so I've always thought that I don't necessary need to clean or wash my makeup brushes. Well it turned out that if you don't take good care of them and clean them at least once a week or once every 2 weeks, all the germs and bacteria may irritate our skin and could casue us allergies and pimples to our face, and ofcourse we don't want that to happen!!! You can check Mai's post about how to clean your brushes Here...
Finally, I had a great makeup learning experience, now I know the full basics for makeup, the tools and techniques, the do's and don't's, and I can't wait to join her upcoming advanced classes... =D
