The Face Shop Spring 2012

I love yesterday's happenings! :) After my Beauty and Butter nail and foot spa experience, literal na tumawid lang ako going to The Face Shop Shang branch for their intimate event / makeover party:

The Face Shop is Korea’s #1 beauty brand, with over 900 stores worldwide, including 27 in the Philippines. I have loved The Face Shop for their wide array of cute and quality nail polish, and before I even bought these bottles by set (may kasama nang pouch, hehe)  

More Crack Nail colors!

But aside from the nail polish, The Face Shop also carries makeup and other skincare products. Take word from the Koreans in beauty and skincare and trust in the Korean beauty brand The Face Shop to satisfy your beauty fix.   

Cute packaging!

In the Korean forefront, The Face Shop opens the season with a new batch of BB creams. First formulated in Germany and made popular in Korea, it is considered the most basic skincare regimen to date because of its multiple uses: sunscreen, blemish balm and liquid foundation.

The Face Shop understands the value of health and beauty and because of this; the brand provides everyday beauty needs by offering a wide array of excellent and affordable cosmetic products with only the finest ingredients. Hence, over a dozen kinds of BB creams are present at their store to cater to your beauty concerns!

Even BB Creams for men are available in The Face Shop!

I went to the affair with my pretty blog friends: Ava Te and Melai Entuna:

...And the cute "twins" Verniece Enciso and Vern Enciso!

Aside from the BB Creams, the season also brings in more light and color and The Face Shop follows this trend with the “Pastel Romance” Spring Makeup 2012 Collection. The look is inspired by the soft, velvety pastel hues of spring blossoms. The key colors: dusty rose and opaque lilac. 

1) The beauty brand’s new tri-colored eye palette, Face It Styling Triple Eyes 01 in Pink Nuance creates delicate shades of pink and mauve. 

2) For the cheeks: 
- The Lovely Me:Ex Petite Angle Blusher 02 in Blooming Love combines pink and peach tones perfect for fair ladies 
- Lovely Me:Ex Petite Angle Blusher 03 in Soft Sunset gives a natural flush on morena skin. 
- The Lovely Me:Ex Angle Highlighter 01 in Shiny Rainbow gives cheekbones a healthy glow. L

3) Lastly, kiss the winter goodbye in Milky Tint 01 in Baby Pink. It has the sweetest sheen of rosy pink for your pout.

On to the program! A makeup demo: How the Koreans do it!

Ganyan face ko pag kausap nyo, hahaha :P

Ms. Marge Apacible of The Face Shop:

Spot the Difference! :)

Ms. Janelle Santos for the makeup demo:

Nakakatawa, we realized how most of our makeup techniques are Don'ts! :P

Some tips I learned:
1) For BB Creams na parang too light for your skin, apply a darker shade of powder para mag blend sa tone mo.
2) When applying eyeliner and even eye shadow, direction is always outward going in.
3) Darker shadow for outer creases to create bigger eyes, and blend the colors!
4) Connect upper eyeliner to the lower sa side ng eyes.
5) Do not curl lashes na may mascara na. And it's ok now to use fake lashes! (depend length and thickness to face shape.)

Janelle--so pretty!

Done with the hair! :) She looks like an artista na!
