About a week ago I was invited to a NARS x Steven Klein workshop at Central Chidlom (thank you ka, Khun Nan!). It was my first makeup workshop I attended so everything was pretty new and exciting (and a little awkward) for me. I got to meet NARS International Makeup Artist Lena Koro who's really sweet, patient, and so down-to-earth. She even helped me find my imaginary crease. :D If you didn't know already, there are so many gorgeous new pieces in the NARS x Steven Klein Holiday Collection. I'll show you some of them that I was able to play with in this post. There's one item that I think is a must-have but you have to keep on reading to see what it is! :)
All NARS goodies! How I wish I could take everything home with me! :D
MUA Lena Koro at work using the new pieces from the Steven Klein Holiday Collection! She explained everything so clearly and so professionally while still being humble and friendly. :) Below is the finished look on the model. She's flawless!
So many gorgeous items from the collection but my favorite piece is the Despair Cheek Palette! :) So sorry for the lack of swatches. I was just too busy playing with them that I forgot to take pictures. ^_^”
With fellow bloggers
I feel so old and out-of-place. I also feel awkward for wearing a red dress when NARS' color theme is black and white. ^_^
MUA Lena Koro at my station
See what I mean about her helping me find my imaginary crease? I can still hear her say “it's riiiight here!“. Her favorite eyeliner pencil is Mambo by the way which was what she used on me as a base.
And she used the #49 Wet/Dry Eyeshadow Brush to blend the liner. I had to post this photo because I look so funny here! :D I think I sort of like the eye makeup I did myself on my left eye (your right) better, though. More me I guess. The right eye was still unblended of course. :)
With the MUAs
You may be surprised to learn that prior to the workshop, I'd never had any makeover done or makeup applied on my face by anyone besides myself before! Nong Benz (left) and Lena Koro (center) were the first MUAs to ever give me a makeover!
Last but not least
Lots of thanks to Nong Oui for being my partner in crime. Isn't she goooooorgeous! :)
