On this day, two weeks ago, with a grueling hangover but very excited about what was about to unfold, I attended an awesome L’Oreal workshop.
The workshop had two parts, actually three, yes, yes, there were three.
The first part consisted in a trend presentation by Alexandru Abagiu, more than one hour full of fashion beauty talk. I’m not going to guide you through it but Koko wrote a great post about trends.
Just to name one of my favorites, the after-the-gym look, were basically you look kinda sweaty, scratch that, glowing. Why I like this one? Because I can achieve it by simply going to the gym, ha! Joking, joking. Looks fresh and natural, you know, for the lazy ladies. Ehhm, me included.
Then came a demonstration of How to achieve the feline look that L’Oreal is promoting lately, alongside with a launch of a couple of professional made accessible to the public, products. Will get to that asap.
During the demonstration, of course, by Alex Abagiu, he gave us a couple of tips that I personally didn’t know and found very useful.
- When applying foundation don’t forget about your ears. Same goes for contouring. Well, yeah, I didn’t do that until now.
- When applying bronzer or sculpting products, with a brush or beauty blender, go from exterior to interior, so you don’t apply a big chunk of product on the middle of your face.
- You can use blush powder products as eyeshadow also. Especially if you spray them with a fixing solution before, to get a more intense look.
- For extra plump and natural looking eyebrows, use different products in different shades.
- Use a fixing spray before and after you do your make up for a more lasting result.
The end result, ladies:
Then there was a practical were we could try the new products ourselves. During the workshop I tried the Super Gel Intenza, which I continued using since then. Darlings, it’s amazing. Super easy to apply, super easy, of an intense black and rich gel texture. Before this one, I could’ve apply correctly just one type of eyeliner, and I own more than 10, but this is one is game changing. You should really try it.
Another product that I’m very excited about, and my momma too, is the L’Oreal Brow Artist Plumper. Mascara like, again super easy to use, it defines and plumps your eyebrows in really natural way. I’ve been using different types of plumpers, from high end ones to more drug store types, buy i’m really loving this one because it doesn’t burden your eyebrows and you don’t get the sticky sensation. You know what I mean?
I’m a more of a powder sculpting gal, but the Infaillible Sculpt Palette is right up my alley. Both of the light-shadow sculpting shades are amazing, but love, love, love the illumination one. Leaves your skin luminous and very fresh looking. Aaaand again, very easy to use, especially with a beauty blender. Looks very well used with the Infaillible Blush Sculpt.
And the last item I wanna talk about is the Infaillible Long Lasting Lips, which you need sand paper to get off after you apply it. Not quite, but you need waterproof makeup remover if you don’t want to do the Kylie Jenner lips challenge unwillingly. With high-intensity, transfer-resistant color it actually stays on your lips for hours and hours. It’s two step process:
Step 1: Apply High Intensity Color for true color pay-off that resists transfer, fading & bleeding.
Step 2: Apply Pro-Seal Balm to lock in color and leave lips feeling moisturized.
I think I covered almost everything, I really enjoyed the workshop and it was very, very useful also!
