BDJ Box and Belle De Jour Power Planner together with NYX Cosmetics Philippines and Flawless Face and Body Clinic brought up a spooktacular pre- Halloween event for all the makeup enthusiast Bellas. Since I am a certified makeup enthusiast and a makeup artist as well and I want to enhance my makeup skills to another level I tried my luck to get a slot for this BDJ Passion Series event. Luckily I was able to get one and also a plus one invite. The event was held at the Flawless Face and Body Clinic Head Office and was attended by more or less 50 Bellas.
To get things started Ms.Yannie from BDJ had a game. 5 Horror movie questions will be asked and the first Bella to raise her hand will get a chance to answer, the 5 lucky Bellas who won got a limited edition pouch from Flawless.
Since NYX Cosmetics Philippines is one of the sponsor, our speaker for the workshop is their Chief Makeup Artist, Ms. Chyla Guerrero. She is a graduate of UST with a degree on Industrial Design, which comes as no surprise to me because UST has been known to be one of the best creative hubs for honing artists. Our table was filled with NYX Cosmetics which later on used by us, Bellas to achieve the #FlawlesslyEthereal look. I was lucky that my table was with the Bellas whom I met at the BDJ Mix & Match with Wacoal. So I felt really comfortable.
Ms. Chyla started off with the Sugar Skull Makeup look. Just a background of this look, skull or calavera is an obvious choice for Halloween look since in Mexico, Dia de Muertos or the Day of the Dead starts on October 31. Decorated sugar skulls take over this Mexican Holiday. Before we came Ms. Chyla started already on the half of the face of the model. So while she was instructing us what to do she’s also doing the other half of the model’s face. She started with a cut creased purple NYX Mettalic Lip Creams,YES! Lip creams but talk about versatility, they can also be used as eyeshadows. Tip from Ms. Chyla when doing Halloween makeup: use a white or skintone colored liner to easily drawout ot erase any corrections. What I love about NYX products is that they cater makeups even for special looks. I was able to do the Sugar Skull on my whole face.
I really enjoyed the products that was on our table it was all useful for the looks.
The second look was the Ethereal Fairy, we all know that fairies are powerful magical creatures yet sweet looking. They are timeless and immortal, existing outside of time. With this look, Ms. Chyla started by hiding the models brows using an elmer’s glue. Yes! A glue, what a trick! You just need to glide the glue to your brows and wait for a couple of minutes and put some concealer then mascara. With a pop of pink eyeshadow, she put in the eyelids and draw some sakura flowers at the side if the face to finalize everything a purple lipstick was worn by the model. I wasn’t able to do this look because my whole face is still wearing the first Candy Skull look.
After the workshop Ms. Rene of Flawless Face and Body Clinic introduce to us, bellas what is Flawless, their services that they offer and also their products. Flawless also raffled off 5 Rejuvilite Insta GCs.
Through this BDJ Passion Series event, we were able to showcase our creativity and support each other to achieve our Halloween looks. My. Chyla personally selected the winner, so it was such an honor to win it. The winner of the makeup look was seated in my table (ig name: beautybymariebella) and I was happy for her. She really pulled off that #FlawlesslyEthereal look. She also shared a NYX Velvet Matte lipstick to me as a thank you for helping her. Thanks Marie!
I was able to level up may makeup skills and surely Halloween will be a lot more lit!
