"The truth is, no one knows how to apply cosmetics instinctively. Inadvertently, many girls have also been mislead into thinking that other girls simply do and therefore do not dare break this surface tension of being none the wiser. We have bought into the myth that upon purchasing the latest product from the counter, we will be able to expertly wield it.
Unfortunately, it does not work that way many a times and my own trial and error was not getting me the results promised by the advertised product.
Deciding to debunk this mythical expectation that girls just know how to apply makeup, I consulted the The Style Atelier for a one-to-one session at the Effectiveness in Personal Makeup Workshop. I never looked back since.
Joy of The Style Atelier first and foremost got to know more about my skin type, my preferred look and what I wanted to achieve in a personal profile prior to the workshop. Because everyone is unique, Joy does not paint in broad strokes, but instead calibrates for each person's hue the most appropriate shade of cosmetic. She also considers my lifestyle, work environment and wardrobe when recommending the best look for me.
Joy addressed the area that I was most clueless about, which is the purpose and application of the primer, the foundation (liquid? compact? powder?), BB Cream (what's BB?) and the like in creating that naturally flawless base. She assuaged my reservations and provided the scaffold for me to gain confidence with hands-on practice.
The session was very detailed and for me it was the golden opportunity to find out everything I always wanted to know about make-up but was too afraid to ask.
By the end of the session, I was much better armed with a deeper knowledge of make-up (deconstruction and blended back together) and a new found confidence in being able to create the look and feel that's just right for me.
PS: One of the sweetest testimonials I have ever received from a recent participant of my Effective Skills For Personal Makeup Course. Thank you Wynnie for your kind words. I sincerely appreciate the support! :)
