Kiss & Make Up Make Up Workshop with B Delgado & Eunice Enrera

_K&MU-272

I just back from B Delgado and Eunice Enrera’s Kiss & Make Up workshop which was held at the Cafe Laguna Garden. It was a nice gathering of make up enthusiasts to sit down and learn a few tips and tricks about make up application.

Eunice and B were such interesting and fun teachers and they taught me so much about make up brands and the process of applying it. It was such a light and fun afternoon and I can’t wait until the next time I get to see them. So today, I’m sharing a few of the wonderful tips that I learned from that wonderful afternoon:

1.Familiarize yourself with your brushes and their uses.

Every brush in your kit has it’s own special use and it’s just waiting for you to discover it. Get to know the make up brushes in your kit and find out how you can use it for your favorite make up looks.

2. Make up is made to enhance your features, not change it.

This should be kept in mind when applying techniques such as contouring and highlighting. It’s all about playing with light, enhancing what you have and often times, creating a few illusions.

3. Start from the basics.

If you don’t have any make up at all and you don’t know where to start, all you need to jump start your collection are: foundation, concealer, an eye brow kit, blush and lipstick. The hoarding will come easily as you start to become curious about different brands, ingerdients, types, looks and etc. I am getting there… Oh God, help me!

4. Experiment with different looks and products.

B made a very good point about make up in the past and in more current times. Before, everyone was so conservative about make up but nowadays, people are more experimental when it comes to make up (and everything else in life, for that matter!). So don’t be afraid to play with make up, different looks and brands. Just cuz everyone else is using a certain brand doesn’t mean that you have to- work it what works for you and make sure you enjoy what you’re doing!

5. Strobing is highlighting with a fancier vocabulary.

Strobing, highlighting and illuminating/ immunizing (?) are all the same. Don’t throw out your highlighting cream just yet, you’re all set!

After the event I went home and put my new learnings to good work. Here’s my make up after applying all the techniques that I learned from the workshop. Let me know what you think about it 🙂

Kiss & Make Up Make- Up Workshop This August, 2015

Being a fashion blogger, it’s important that I’m not only “on fleek” with my outfits but with my make up as well. I always try to stay on top of my make up game by trying out different products and watching tons and tooons of make up tutorials but honestly, nothing beats the real thing.

This August 23, 2015 (Sunday) at Cafe Laguna, Ayala Center Cebu from 1:00- 5:00 PM, get the chance to sit down and get trained by B Delgado (@itsbdelgado) and Eunice Enrera (@euniceenrera_mua), both very skilled make up professionals from different parts of the world.

A few days ago, I was able to meet Eunice where she did my make up for commercial we were shooting. We were totally on the same level on things so I’m pretty sure this event is going to be fun and educational… but mostly fun. 😉

Here are some of the photos of the make up she did:

I’m so excited to hang out, meet new friends and learn a bunch of new make up techniques! What I’m looking forward to the most is learning how to contour properly (God knows I need to learn THAT) and strobing. Honestly, I don’t know much about it other than it’s supposed to involve playing with light so I’m super excited to find out more about it!
