Mary Quant Beauty Workshop with Miss Nobuko Takaki

Wednesday, May 07, 2014

It's been a while I didn't attend any beauty workshops, and finally attended one last Sunday, what brand was that? It's Mary Quant, and its cute five-petals daisy is Mary Quant's trademark. You may found them at MUSE by Watsons, Sunway Pyramid.

Bloggers and I were gathered at Mandom Office for this exclusive session and we're glad to learn and play along Mary Quant products, fully guided by Miss Nobuko Takaki, MQ's beauty trainer, from basics to colors!

Oil Zap (MYR119, 20g) for oily control effect or Moisture Zap (MYR129, 30g) preferably normal/dry skin for hydration. For combination users, you can use both primers on T-Zone and U-Zone area respectively.

Eye Base:
For a longer-lasting eye colors, apply Eye Gloss Treatment Eye Foundation (MYR79, 8.5g) before any cream shadow or powder shadow for better color enhancement and keeps your eyes hydrated. I'm using #01 Light Beige.

Foundation Powder:
Based on my experience, I always opt for one shade lighter than my skin tone to avoid my skin become darker after oxidation. Mary Quant Smoo Make Powder Foundation (MYR108, 10g) offers 8 shades for consumers. What's my shade? I can use either O-40 or Y-30, depends on what colors I'm gonna use on that day.

Loose Powder:
Mary Quant's Loose Face Powder (MYR109, 27g) has a very fine textured powder and it gives a perfect complexion for finishing.You may pad it using puff or big fluffy powder blush. I'm just love how #01 Sheer Satin works on my face.

Eye Shadow
Dare to challenge yourself with purple and pinkish colors! We might fear that these colors will make our eyes "macam kena tumbuk" if we're blending these colors wrongly. No worries, Miss Takaki was patient enough to teach us the correct application method. The Eye Opener (MYR49 each), we're using N-01 Pinkish White, R-02 Rose Baby, P-06 Lavender Grey and V-01 Bright Violet.

Blush Baby (MYR75) has 14 shades available for the entire Mary Quant collection! I tried #02 Mauve Pink on my apple cheek and #09 Shell Pink for highlighting.

I embroidered my brow before, however I need to retouch-up my bro colors when the color starts to fade off. I'm using Brow Line in #02 Chestnut Brown (MYR59)
Make-up items that we used on that day ^^
I love playing mascara with colors! To suit the entire look, I've picked Action Lashings in #06 Bohemian Purple (MYR109) to enhance my eye figure. Seriously it looks bigger compared to the normal mascara colors like black. This is something different from the ordinary mascaras in the market. It has two sides of different function: the Coil and Chip Brush features short, raised bristles meanwhile the Oil Gel Formula volumes and lengthen your eye lashes. All Action Lashings are anti color-fading and waterproof.

Eye & Lip:
It's Out Line (MYR59), comes in 20 shades which some of them you may even use as lip liner. I was using the red color as liner for a gothic look!

My whole look completed with more natural shade so that the attention on my eye area won't be taken away. (MYR108).
