Our MAC in Mode Workshop Experience

I was pretty excited to be attending this workhop at first but after the session I felt it was not really up to my expectations of how it should be conducted. There was way too much unnecessary steps included in the makeup tutorials that makes my skin looked chalky and thick with foundation afterwards. Nevertheles, I'm still happy to be able to play with MAC products and using MAC brushes. The quality of the full size brushes are super awesome! It makes me wanna have them especially #217! after they feeling their strokes on my skin, perfect!

MAC Senior Makeup Artist, Yokoe in action...sorry for the blurred picture :(

That's our tools for the day, you can see they only provided us some small edition brushes (grrr...) but our Makeup Artist were kind enough to lend us their full size brushes to try :)

MAC Carbon eyeshadow is our favourite!

Ohhh bare face -_-

The end result of the makeover (not very promising though):

Coming to the exciting part, my Color Craft hauls! *Super excited*
Those two samples are for the workshop; Skin Refined Zone Treatment and Strobe Cream. It's a shame they only gives such shabby sample as door gifts. Not what I expected it to be :(

Mineralize Skinfinish in Triple Fusion and Eye Shadow Quad in Assemblage *Lots of hearts*

After attending the workshop, we continued our mission on makeup at Bobbi Brown. We've got a complimentary makeover in conjunction with the launch of their new Cleansing Oil.

Presenting the Bobbi Brown makeover look! Looks simple but polished. The foundation is so close to my real skin color! My eyes are watery because of excessive eye makeup @.@

We collected a sample of Bobbi Brown's Cleansing Oil too :P

Overall, we did have fun at the end of the day with each others company. Phew! Finally I'm done with my MAC workshop reporting :) Time to sleep!

Quick Update of the Weekend

It has been a pretty busy weekend. Weekend is finally gone and so soon I'll be back at work :(

Friday: Having a fun time at my colleague's new home for his Housewarming BBQ partayyy!

Saturday: Good buddy's wedding ceremony, helping out to play the bridegroom's party in the morning. Went to Gurney Plaza in the afternoon to check out the MAC Color Craft Collection. Love the collection! Detoured to Queensbay Mall to purchase some Etude House Brushes (@ 40% off) and Nailpolishes (@20% off). Such satisfying hauls!

Sunday: At Gurney's G Hotel for sumptuous buffet lunch courtesy of my bf :P

That's not all, I'm ending this post with some FOTDs :P

This look is for my friend's wedding ceremony look.

A makeover by MAC's makeup artist using Assemblage, Triple Fusion and Miss Marble.

So loving the Miss Marble lipgloss!

Is That Lady Gaga on the Runway?

Nope, Lady Gaga did not changed her profession from a singer to a runway model. Lady Gaga's quirky and dramatic fashion style has been spotted at several Fall 2009 Couture runway shows lately featuring massive fashion house such as Gaultier, Christian Lacroix, Chanel and Givenchy.

Comparison of Lady Gaga's outfit at various events versus the runway look:

The Gaultier Paris leg baring bodysuits

Chanel's pouf-skirted wedding dress

Christian Lacroix's sharp edges skirts

Alexis Mabille's hooded jumpsuit

Givenchy's chain and lock step

Venus rising at Gaultier Paris

Do you love her style and are the designers' influenced by her? Anyway, I still love her music ;)
