I found out about the Myer Masterclasses on Instagram via Tina Yong‘s Instagram – where she advertised that she would be holding some lessons at the department store that is close-ish to my work place. I really didn’t want to miss out on these, partly because I’m a big fan of her videos (and I’ve been binge watching the Tina Tries It series pretty often) and also because the prices were pretty good.
In addition to this class with Tina, I also chose to attend two other masterclasses with another two brands – YSL, which was on the same day, and MAC Cosmetics, which is next week. The brand masterclasses were AUD$25 each and the lesson with Tina Yong was AUD$50 – both of these classes also include gifts from the brands which more than make up for the cost of the seat.
Both of these classes have different topics. For Tina’s class, it was mainly about easy and useable daily make up tips (focusing on a fresh and radiant look) which are suitable for people on the go. I ended up attending these class with two of my friends but I went to the YSL class alone – this was more about night time make up and introduced a lot of the YSL brand (and I love their brand).
I’m the type of person who doesn’t have as many friends as people sometimes think I do. In fact, I can somewhat consider myself an extroverted introvert. It takes me a long time to really be comfortable around someone and, oftentimes, I prefer to spend my weekends alone.
Last weekend though, as people saw from my #ootd post, I spent the weekend with my friend Sophia! We had taken some photos together, ate good food and did some online shopping (there is a massive make up haul coming your way) but we also spent a night filming something fun for my Youtube channel.
I’m personally a little appalled at the mess I look and came to the realisation that I sound (and look) very strange on video. However, the entire thing is so much fun that I can’t help but share it. Here it is everyone! I hope you enjoy.
Hi everyone! So it looks like I finally had the courage to film and post my first Youtube video – it’s kind of a long time coming. For my first one, I decided to go simple and show how I do my day-to-day make up. This look was solidified over the past year or so and is heavily influenced by the trends and styles that I saw while I was living in South Korea. It focuses on a clean, youthful style that is suitable for school, outings and work. I did darken the eye makeup slightly though, something which was more suitable now that I’m back in Sydney!
The video will be at the end of this post but, first, let me talk about my favourite products from this tutorial.
