The Australian College and Beauty

Hey everyone! It's a busy Friday and Saturday for me. Now I have colds =( My body finally gave up with the 3 consecutive days lack of sleep and bad weather...

I have a few things to blog but I thought this should go first...

I was supposed to hangout at SM Megamall this afternoon while waiting for Pau to finish his appointment but saw this ad at the Podium Parking lot. If you're a reader of this blog, you know I'm in search of a good makeup school right so my feet just brought me there hihi.

The Australian College and Beauty

The receptionist was so kind to tour me around the entire school/salon.

This is where the facial treatments are being held

Shower room

foot massage/foot spa area. You can see a nice view from this room cool!

Manicure area

Beauty wall? If I remember correctly. Mits, the receptionist, told me... maybe someday you'll see your name there. HAHAHA I wish =D

Makeup area..This is where the students do their hands-on. I wish to have this kind of mirror in my room.

Haircutting area

Conference room

Lecture room. They have 2


I wasn't able to take pics of the other rooms =D

Nice noh? I've been to some of the well-known makeup schools here in Manila but this one is the biggest and the coziest I've seen so far.

...and how lucky can I get....Found out that this school just opened last Wednesday and they offered free workshops today to introduce what their school has to offer. I was able to join 2 =D Some of the classes will start on Monday already so I don't know if they'll still be having it by then.

1st: Haircutting

Conducted by Ms. Dara . See how sexy and gorgeous she is. Not to mention a very talented woman. She made haircutting look so easy.

The model is named Vince. He was there to promote his album I just forgot to write down the name hehe sorry. But he has some Gary V remake and videos being aired on MYX channel.

Important points I remembered:

your haircut style should be right to the shape of your face and head and to the texture of your hair.
Balance and Harmony is the key for a perfect cut
Your haircut should be wearable, current in fashion and fits your lifestyle.

Don't know if I can cut someone else's hair. Seems interesting after this workshop. But right now I'm more into makeup =P

2nd: Makeup application

Conducted by the Director of the school Ms. Jenny Gonzales.

I want to have those purple brushes.

And I thought I knew all of the basics already but I learned some new things today =D

Ms. Jenny discussed the ff:

tools one should prepare when doing makeup for sanitation, protection and cleansing.

Analyzing face shapes.
Highlighting and contouring.
Some best practices and a little bit of eye makeup application

If only I have the money and I could give up my work to take their certificate course haiz. Maybe someday? hehe. MUFE is still my no. 1 choice right now bec of my schedule. must decide must decide!

Anywhooo...if this post made you interested, you can visit them at 4th Level of The Podium Mall. Or visit their website

Wowww, this is really interesting school! Nice find, sis. Did you manage to ask how much classes were? I'm also on the hunt for a school to go to someday.

Hi sis! Yeah they gave me a list but they offer a lot of courses. It'll be a long post if I type it all haha. If you want I can scan it for you just give me your email. But to give you an idea, the range of certificate/diploma courses 125k-200k. shortest 6months - 1 year. For the makeup shortcourses, 20-30k. Their have glamour makeup, airbrushing, media makeup and special effects short courses.

Chrissy said...

Wow, my heart jumped when I read that price. Hahaha! I can't afford that!

Maybe someday. :/ I'll just go to MUFE or CAS hahahaha~

I'd still like to see the list if it's not too much of a hassle to you, though. My e-mail is


*KiM* said...

Sis, I discussed with Von from P&J before about this and they told you the price na ba?? I heard it's SUPER pricey! hehehe you do plan to study right? I am studying again at the Basement Academy..but it's night class from 6pm-10pm for intensive 2 weeks! :) it's at the Basement Salon Shangri-la :)

*KiM* said...

Hey girls! Thanks for your comments. Yes the school is super nice but also yes super expensive. Accdg to them they're accredited internationally so if you're a graduate of their school you can be a makeup artist anywhere in the world. But they don't offer internship as of now. For the certificate/diploma course all the products are included already. I like this school so much but I'm not planning to enroll here coz it's so expensive for me...=(
