Beauty Workshop By Marj Sia & Rowena Lei

Last year, Marj & Ro hosted a beauty workshop where they shared their beauty tips. I, together with Michelle Lim of My Mom Friday attended the workshop and after 48 years (I mean almost a year) heehee, I get to share what happened that afternoon.


The workshop was held at Backyard Coffee in San Juan. The cozy cafe was graced by lovely women who were very eager to learn basic skin care & make up.

Some of the goodies from the workshop. Grabe, I swear super sulit because the Php 5,000 fee lets you take home all these and more!


More than a dozen women joined the workshop. I tell you, iba talaga pag skin care and make up ang usapan. Beauty is an unspoken code that women during the workshop were excited to unlock!


With my seatmate, Michelle. She’s not much of a make up person so she was excited to attend the event.


Here’s what’s inside our beauty kit. Gift certificates and make up products from the partner brands. These are what we used to create a simple make up look that afternoon.


Since I know we’ll be doing our own make up, I came bare-faced.


Here’s Rowena demonstrating an easy way to apply base.

What I liked about the workshop was how Marj & Ro shared & applied their tips during their live demo. Some of the ladies who attended the event took this chance to ask their concerns. Apart from the demo, we were able to apply all the tips Marj & Ro shared on ourselves.


Here I am with my base & brows done. Bet ko yung they provided a beauty mirror for everyone.


Now here’s Marj who did a step-by-step on how to apply shadow on your eyes. Apart from the product, technique is also something you need to consider when it comes to make up application. And like most things, practice really makes perfect. If you don’t get it the first time, you have 365 days to try! 😉MarjRo_BeautyWorkshop_JackieGo_3

So these are the products we used during the workshop. After a few minutes, here’s what I came up with.MarjRo_BeautyWorkshop_JackieGo_16

Gradient eye make up. Love the technique Marj taught us!

After the demo and application, we–well, mostly I– took advantage of the L’oreal testers.

Like a mad woman, I swatched away these L’Oreal lippies!

Gaganda lahat!

More, more swatches! This time pinks naman!


Here I was wearing one of the L’Oreal lippies. Sorry, I forgot what shade it was!


Here’s Michelle who also did her own make up. Good job seatmate!


All smiles after the workshop. Congratulations Marj & Ro! Now if you miss out on the first one, here’s your chance–the dynamic duo (dynamic duo talaga?!) is back!



Look at the partner brands, some of them I personally love!

If you reserve a slot on or before May 31, 2016, you pay the discounted price of Php 4,000! You get more than what you pay for –literally, since you get a lot of products in your beauty kit! Also, you can ask away all your skin care and make up concerns for these two ladies have a lot of tips & tricks to share.

Overall, I would recommend this workshop for the ladies who want to learn the basics of applying make up and proper skin care routine. 😉 Limited slots only so if you’re free on June 11, 2016 and want to learn more beauty tips, go ahead and join the workshop!
