When I got an invitation to attend a makeup workshop from Shiseido to be conducted by its Chief Training Manager for Asia, Ms. Angela Boh, I immediately confirmed without having second thoughts. I may have attended a lot of makeup courses and certifications and have been practicing makeup in the Philippines for years but I still have a lot of things and techniques to learn. I got curious on what techniques Ms. Angela is using to create a flawless and radiant finish and of course I want to try Shiseido products. I've been wanting to try their foundations, concealers and their famous eye lash curler for a long time now but I still have too many products to finish so I kept on delaying my Shiseido makeup shopping sigh.
When I arrived on the venue, I saw these on the table assigned to me: the new Shiseido foundation brush, some brushes, sponge, mixing plate, spatula, translucent finishing powder, blush trio, lip pencil, eyeliner, concealer, mascara, long-wear cream eyeshadow, concealer, lip gloss, and Shiseido eyelash curler
I'm one of those who arrived early and Mrs. Martinez so we had the chance to do a photo-op with Angela Boh even before the workshop started.
Angela showed us the step by step makeup application: using the base, foundation, concealer, powder, eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, eyebrows, cheeks and lips. She also showed us how to use this new foundation brush:
This new foundation brush easily creates a perfect natural finish with great coverage. Use it with patting motion on areas where you need full coverage (usually the undereye area and the center of the face), pressing motion on areas where you need just a sheer or medium coverage and use it to blend on the flawless parts of your face (usually the sides). I love love love it because it works well with any type of foundation, emulsion or powder.
Here's the after shot of Ms. Angela's model. Sorry I wasn't able to take a front and close-up shot. But do check out the Shiseido Philippines Likepage for the official photos.
And we also got the chance to apply what we learned on our models. Here's my model, Madel. She's got great skin so I concentrated more on covering her dark circles.

Madel's after shot. I used Shiseido's new radiant lifting foundation on her. Love it so much. See how it made her face bright and flawless. It's great for full coverage too.

Thank you so much Shiseido Philippines for that wonderful experience with Ms. Angela Boh. I learned new techniques that I'll definitely be able to use on my clients. The New Radiant Lifting Foundation and Natural finish concealer are next on my to-buy list :)
