Not many of you know this but I actually won a Nuffnang Competition with this post back in February 2010, which granted me a $250 gift voucher to RedBalloon (go check them out), so yes, after much time, I finally used one of the ‘experiences’ I chose on Thursday! It was a Makeup lesson with Napoleon Perdis (plus $95 worth of products!) Yayy ♥
Anyway, I was extremely excited because I’ve never had a proper make up lesson!
Other make up artists at Estee Lauder/YSL/Shiseido counters have never actually done a make over for me that I liked (probably because they were free…) but yeah. I was hoping that this was going to be awesome and ..it was *_*!
I got there and the place was awesome looking. And the make up artist, Peter, was super friendly, encouraging and helpful. I learnt a lot of tricks that I didn’t know before and was completely in control of how I wanted the make up to turn out like. I was able to request if I wanted light or heavy foundation, bright or nude lipstick, and you get what I mean.
I’m not sure if you guys realise this but all the fake lashes I’ve worn in the past have been quite dramatic and thick – and these are the first ones I’ve ever worn that are “natural” and omg, they feel amazing. I think I’m going to get more and more natural lashes from now on ;_; ! They’re so much lighter and look gorgeous!
At the end of the day, I left with the foundation, concealer, eye lashes and lipstick (yay!) – I had to pay an extra $59 to cover the costs but I was completely happy with it! I only wish that I had enough money to buy every other product he used (especially the purple eye shadow!)
Anyway, I was super duper happy with this experience and if I ever get the chance, I will definitely do it again!
This experience is offered in most states in Australia, so if you’d like to go check it out please ahead over to here to find one in your state! I definitely recommend this experience so go try it outttt!! :D
Have you had a make up lesson before?
I was not sponsored by Napoleon Perdis to do this
I was given a RedBalloon voucher from Nuffnang but the choice
to do this was completely up to me.
