Workshop: Passport to Pretty with Clinique

By 21:32 , ,

Organised by Cosmopolitan, the Passport to Pretty with Clinique workshop last Saturday taught Clinique and Cosmo fans how to get the jet setting fashionista look - New York, Paris & Tokyo were all in the same room!

The workshop started off with a lively welcome and introduction from Jin of Clinique. As Clinique always emphasises 'Great Skin' participants were guided through the 3-step skincare according to skin types.

Step 1: Cleanse
Step 2: Exfoliate
Step 3: Moisturise

Next step was to apply the Super City Block Oil Free Daily Face Protector SPF 40 which also acts as a base before prettifying yourself with makeup.

David Ooi conducted the make up session after tea break. He's is ever so funny! He recreated the ooh la la sexy Paris look on a volunteer by popular request.

THE train case full of goodies!

He then left all 50 participants to create their own version of the New York/Paris/ Tokyo look. David's train case was ransacked for products & colours. There wasn't much left in it by the time the workshop ended.

I attempted the New York look. I'm always so terrible at doing eye make up! After foundation & loose powder, I started with Colour Surge Eye Shadow Trio in Ebb and Flow because it matched the colour of the top I was wearing. It is a palest blue green partnered with a midtone seafoam and a blackened teal. I lined my eyes with Kohl Shaper for Eyes in Blackened Pewter and topped of with Lash Power Volumizing Mascara in Black Onyx (lurv this mascara!).

For my eyes

I sweeped Fresh Bloom Allover Colour in Plum Poppy on the apples of my cheek. I then lined & filled in my lips with Quickline for Lips in Soft Rose and applied a light layer of Vitamin C Lip Smoothie Anti-Oxidant Lip Colour in Goodness Grapecious. Viola! My subtle version of the NY look.

What I noticed about this workshop was the wider range of age group which was a pleasant surprise. Usually you'd find the 20-35. This time there were women in their 40's participating. It was a good mix.

A fun workshop!
