HD Beauty and Fashion Makeup Weekend 2

Another exciting day in makeup school! Here are the things we learned today:

Men's Makeup

Men have oilier skin and their skin texture is very different from the ladies. They need makeup for special occasions too, just need to be neatly groomed and to lessen the oiliness. See the actors on TV and models on print ads in magazines? Well hello David Beckham! Yes, a 2-day old mustache is sexy!

I bet he's thinking about me in this pic (daydreamer). Hihi

  • Apply a very thin layer of toner (for oily skin), since men have oilier skin.
  • Need to use at least 2 shades darker than his skin tone.
  • Use concealer/corrector on spots needed
  • Dab loose powder
  • Shade the corner of the nose (near the eyes) and under the jaw line

Hands on work:


Makeup for Mature Women

Doing makeup on mature women is quite challenging due to their skin type and their eyes shape. But it will be easier to manage just as long as you know how.

  • Do not use pink-based foundation
  • Use warm colors for the eye shadows
  • Use peach blush
  • Colors should not be too shiny.
Hands on work:


Glamour Makeup

It is all about red lipstick!

  • Always use a lipliner.
  • Dab a clear or highlight the center of the bottom lip to make it look fuller.
  • Shade under the lips to pop out those luscious red lips.

Hands on work:



And that wraps up our 2nd day in makeup school! I had so much fun! Meanwhile, here are some pictures of me and my classmates/seatmates Camille and Jenny, cam-whoring during breaktime!

HD Beauty and Fashion Makeup Weekend 1

Didn't get much sleep a night before the first day of makeup school, why? Because I'm so excited!

Whenever I put makeup on other people I can't help but ask myself at times if I'm doing the makeup procedures the right way. It's not enough to just know the basics, I want to know MORE about makeup and applying it the right way. The "why" and the "how" of applying makeup.

I chose HD Makeup Studio and Academy because...
  • This is the only makeup school that caters High Definition makeup for fashion and beauty (Evening Makeup, Bridal, Fashion, Avant Garde, etc)! Other schools offer HD as an advanced course.
  • They only accept 9 to 12 students per class so they sure are to check your work, like every 5 minutes, almost like a one-on-one course.
  • The academy provides the models for you, so no worries on searching for a victim... i mean, model.
  • The people here and the instructors sir Jeave and miss Steph together with their assistants are very cool and friendly.
  • The school is very accessible. It's only in Ortigas.
  • It perfectly fits my schedule. I took the weekend course
On our first day of classes, I learned not just about putting makeup on but also to identify different face shapes and eye shapes and where to put the highlights, midtone shades, and contour to further enhance the beauty of that person.

My hands-on work:

And that wraps up my first day of makeup school! I hope you enjoy!

Can't Decide on Dollface Palettes

This week I have been deciding which of these Dollface palettes I should buy. I already have NYX Eyeshadow Palette but I need more colors. But I still can't decide!

Vanity Palette
 I like their Vanity (Combo) Palette because it has eyeshadow, lipsticks, blush and contour. However, the eyeshadow collection is pretty much similar to my NXY eyeshadow palette (below), doesn't it?

More Dollface's Eyeshadow Palettes:

Avant Garde Palette (I like this one so that I have darker shades)

Contour and Blush Palette
I wanted to get them all!
