Cosmopolitan x Priceline Beauty Workshop

Hi All!

Last Thursday, I was invited to a Beauty Workshop created by Cosmopolitan and Priceline. It was held in Pitt St mall, near Zara. The workshop was held in Melbourne and Brisbane as well. 

At first, I didn't know what to expect, because I never been to one before, but an event held by Cosmo and Priceline can't be wrong, so I decided to go and asked my pretty friend Jeanice to go with me. I was so looking forward to this event the whole day I was at work. Hehe.

Public but intimate

The stage

And look who I met! So happy to see them again! :D

Tram and Alice

Before the event started, Helen Dowsley, world renowned makeup artist, asked if I would like to come on stage and she'll do hollywood themed makeup on me. I was quite hesitant at first, but Jean said yes for me and Helen was like "there you go, your friend is answering for you!" I was so nervous yet excited! :D
So here I go!

My awkward smile

what am i doing -__-

It was such a fun and different experience! I tried to act cool the whole way, I think I did a pretty good job hahaha. 

They asked another girl to do colour-blocking makeup and GHD for hairstyling too.

And...drumroll!! The host was Cosmopolitan's Beauty Editor, Leigh Campbell! She is sooo gorgeous in person! 

So pretty!
The event was mainly about sharing makeup tips and tricks. I learned some really helpful ones, so I'd like to share it here too.

When Helen applied foundation on my face, she didn't apply all over my face, instead she applied on just in the middle area on my face, mainly on my t-zone and then blend it out evenly. Especially if you just want to touch up on your makeup after having a long day. My face looked fresher without feeling heavy on makeup!

Leigh also talked about applying fake lashes on top of our actual lashes not on the skin. That will make the fake lashes more natural.

She also mentioned the newest trend of makeup, which is colour blocking. It is okay to wear two bold colours at the same time, just like colour blocking your clothes.

The most important tips in my opinion is to practice as much as you can. Makeup is about experimenting and practice makes perfect!

Pretty Jean :)

Now, what's that bag that we were carrying? It was a bag full of goodies! They were so heavy but looking at them made me feel so excited!

There are so many products in there that I really can't wait to try! For example, the VS Sassoon Curl Magic, Nads Eyebrow Shaper, Revlon Photoready Primer, 1000Hour Nail Foils, and so much more!

Overall, I was so glad that I went to the event and I hope Cosmo and Priceline can have more of similar events in the future! Do go check Cosmo's latest issue that comes with Priceline beauty book for free! I've always loved reading Cosmopolitan, it is one of the best magazines out there in my opinion, and Priceline is just a heaven for beauty junkies (needless to say that).

Last but not least, I managed to get a photo with Leigh and Helen! YAY!!

I'm the lucky bitch! :D
