I and some of my female blogger friends joined the FACES Basic Make-up Workshop at True Scents & Minerals two weeks ago.
I didn’t have a lot of expectations because I don’t have much experience with mineral make-up, except the very few times I tried my friends’ mineral powder and blush. But I have heard of a couple of good reviews about Jane Iredale so I was curious.
So how was our Jane Iredale mineral make-up makeover? It was a blast! And aside from myself, Chattee, Ria, Miah, and five other workshop participants can attest to that. We were all eyes and ears when Ms. Chiqui Aportadera, True Scents & Minerals’ in-house make-up artist, demonstrated the how-tos of the 5-minute make-up application.
During the 3-hour workshop, all of the participants learned the basic techniques in make-up application. We used Jane Iredale products and had fun trying out different mineral make-up items. Ms. Bunny Sy and her staff were also around to guide us the whole time.
We clearly loved Jane Iredale’s organic and paraben-free mineral make-up line and worth the special mention are the following stand-out items.
- Liquid Minerals in Amber– this mineral foundation is so lightweight that the whole time I had it on, it felt like I wasn’t wearing any. Chattee and Ria looked flawless in Golden Glow while Miah found her true match in Latte.
- Disappear– this product acts as a very pigmented concealer and is ideal for uneven skintones and blemish-prone skin. It is also formulated to aid in drying up pimples. Miah and I were drooling over this one.
- Blusher/Bronzer in Sunbeam– This is a must-have items for the MMU fanatic. It can be used on the eyes, on cheeks as blush or bronzer, and since it’s food-grade, you can even use this on the lips for a subtle hint of color! Ria, on the other hand, is all praises about Moonglow.
- Cream to Powder Eyeliner – Okay, this has got to be my biggest favorite as it is a very compact eye and brow kit. I tried the Black/Brown Plus and used darkest shade to fill my brows. It gave me a softer overall look. As an eyeliner, it glides on smoothly and gave me the definition I have always wanted.
We were so happy with our Jane Iredale mineral make-up makeover because we really achieved that much sought-after fresh and glowing summer look. Hence, the oozing confidence during the photo op after the workshop and the new Facebook profile pics. And I guess the difference was pretty much remarkable because we received compliments on our looks that day.
I have since encouraged my friends to sign up for the FACES Basic Make-up Workshop and last Saturday, May 22, True Scents & Minerals sent home another happy bunch of workshop participants.
