I was really really bad at makeup before.
It was such a waste since my aunts and my mom LOVE makeup so much that they buy almost every cool makeup there is in the world.Â I often find makeup just scattered around and I played with it when I was a kid.Â My mom would sayâ€¦ careful!!! Those are very expensive!!! did you know that that single eye shadow alone costs 1,000 + pesos?
I was such a tomboy when I was a kid!Â I didnâ€™t care about makeup and fashionâ€¦ all I cared about was playing with my friends, homework, sports and dancing!Â I would cry every time my mom would put makeup on me.
Even when I was working I didnâ€™t really put a lot of makeup.Â Then I realized that with what Iâ€™m doing now, I needed to take up some makeup class.
A friend of mine forwarded this to me an online poster about a makeup class locally.
I was like â€œWhat is this? and who is this?â€ Heâ€™s like, â€œI donâ€™t know, just thought it sounds coolâ€¦ and you were planning on studying basic makeup right?â€
Then I realized that this was perfectâ€¦ I did not want to study a whole course about professional makeupâ€¦ I just wanted to know the basics etcâ€¦ etcâ€¦ just so that I can apply nicely on myselfâ€¦
There I went without any makeup and brush and nothing at allâ€¦ Cielo, my makeup teacher and owner of Oleic Fashion Gallery, lent me some of her stuff for the makeup.Â Although, she recommends for her students to bring whatever makeup they have so that she can tell them what to do with what they have.
Anyway, good thing the class also includes some free makeup stuffâ€¦ it included a liquid eye liner (yaye for this I was planning to buy one), pencil liner, multi-colored shimmer eye-shadow, shimmery eye shadow set for smokey eyes application.

Anyway, to summarize the whole experience â€“ in a day, I went to the class knowing NOTHINGâ€¦ at the end of the dayâ€¦ I knew EVERYTHING I had to know about applying makeup on myself.
I also knew what I can do for the extra makeup my mom had at home :)Â Now, I experiment daily and practice on myselfâ€¦ I also need some makeup for the new TV Talk show that I am hosting â€œTek Tok TVâ€.
Cielo also advised me on which kind of makeup and the shades that I need to use if I want to look good on camera 🙂
If you have noticed my pictures and blog posts recently, I have been putting makeup on 🙂 by myself! :DÂ I love it!
Anyway hereâ€™s more detail about the class
