One event I recently attended is a free makeup workshop by Clinique, held from March 24-27 2-4pm at SM Megamall Atrium. I believe it is part of Megamall’s month-long sale event (women’s month or something?). The Clinique workshops are pretty small, with only about 10 participants per session. I caught wind of it through twitter, and since I had some time to spare I signed up for the last session on March 27. For these four days the Atrium was set up specifically for Clinique, and their theme is A Splash of Summer.
This is how our table was set up. There were a lot of makeup items as well as skincare, and we got to try almost all of it! I also had a big mirror to help me see what I’m doing to my face.
This day’s workshop is headed by Ms. Ana Isip.
She first had us remove our makeup with Clinique’s makeup remover. It was in a cream form, which was quite new to me! Then, she had us put on Clinique’s much-vaunted 3-step skincare system: first the cleanser, then the toner, then the famous yellow moisturizer. It felt so good on the skin! After that we put on a sunblock.
After the important skincare step, we were then instructed to put on the foundation. Luckily I matched the shade provided (64, I think?). Concealer came on next. We were then shown how to do the eyebrows, eyes, cheeks, and lips. Tadah! We’re done! I felt so fortunate to be able to try out Clinique skincare and makeup. All my prior experience with Clinique was just from a travel palette, which is not a good representation of their lines. Here are some post-“makeover” selfies along with some friends I made that day.
What was even more amazing were the goodie bags given out afterwards! Inside was a Clinique Bonus tin filled with samples of skincare and makeup! Wow!
A big big thanks to Clinique Philippines for holding this workshop and for the amazing freebies!
