Im here again to give you a report about Beyond Beauty event with Grazia Indonesia,
In Fiddleheads, Pondok Indah Mall 3, street gallery.
Im running here from my previous event on the main atrium of Pondok Indah Mall 2
This event is held by Grazia Indonesia, and Beyond Indonesia
I know you've heard about them before..
Grazia Indonesia is one of my favorite women magazine, provides all we need from a magazine.We need beauty articles, fashion articles, love and life issues, and everything!. And Beyond is a skincare and make up line from Korea, the counter is in Pondok Indah Mall 1, near to Metro.
But what makes it unique from Beyond is, they only give us the best by giving the best from nature, and not doing any test on animal on their products. But their products are still various, with a very cute packaging, and great skincare products. We can't ask for more! that's all we need in our beauty products right?
|Here is the venue of the event :)|
With a cozy lighting, and warm ambiance inside the restaurant,
Dominated with neutral earthy colors (brown, creme, and a bit of green)
And also the warm greetings from all the Grazia Indonesia teams,
Makes me feel excited even more on that day!
When i arrived, Grazia team invited me to taste the canape and drinks,
Those yummy canape from Fiddleheads..
I know you will like their canape,
It taste so good!
|Go to their restaurant to taste this Canape|
To make this become more like a beauty event,
Beyond Indonesia and Grazia Indonesia, also prepared this beaauttifullll display of Beyond make up and skincare products, and also, a helpful beauty assistant to explain about their products..
Im asking much about Beyond products,
What's the ingredients, how to use it, and everything,
And Beyond Indonesia BA is able to explain all my questions with a very clear explanation..
|This is their 'First Essence', best selling skincare from their line :)|
I asked the BA, which skincare product, is their 'MUST HAVE' product?
Beyond BA said, if im going to try anything from their skincare line, it would be True Eco Charm Organic First Essence.
And guess what, i already have it readers!
I bought it after the event (They gave us Rp 200.000,- disc voucher with min.purchase of Rp 400.000,-)
And i will share the review here, on my blog after i used it at least for a few weeks...
|I love the idea of rabbit and a present, it means a gift from nature|
How cute is the packaging of their make up line ?
Have you seen this cute lipsticks?
And also the eyeshadow and blusher?
I know you are drooling to at least swatch it on the back of your hand, (don't lie)
Or you wanna try it straightly on your lips?
|a closer look of their 'save us' series lipstick|
Because Beyond is not experimenting their products on animal...
So i guess 'save us' lipstick series has a message to not doing animal testing on any make up or skincare production...
(Makes me love this brand even MORE)
Ah, and i also try it on my lips
I wanna test the texture and the color on my lips :)
Here is the picture
|Me and Beyond Beauty Assistant|
Their make up line, mostly has a subtle and soft color shade,
And some of them has a shimmery particle on it..
I love the color, you can wear it daily! and also the the moist texture on it..
Makes it more wearable.. :)
I know you are STUNNED by their products already,
We are just about to start, to talk about,
|Ibu Tenik Hartono looks pretty on her green batik dress|
(I love how she dressed up in green cheongsam batik)
After ibu Tenik open the event, ci Daisy Kwee (Grazia Executive Beauty Editor) and ci Hanny Zheng (Brand & Marketing Manager Beyond Indonesia) take over the event, and start the beauty talkshow.
The fact is, they are taking a very good care of their skin
And as i heard before,
They eat well, sleep well, doing exercise to keep their skin in healthy condition,
And yes it is NOT easy to get a healthy and glowing skin..
We must maintain our skin constantly.
Ci Daisy even share a beauty secret of Suzy Miss A,
How she maintain the beauty of her skin,
She doing 4 2 4 method everyday.
Do you know what 4 2 4 method is, readers?
4 2 4 method is :
1. Massage your face and neck for 4 minutes, with massage oil or cleansing oil
2. Layer the oil with your cleansing milk products, and massage it for 2 minutes,
3. Rinse your face with warm water for 2 minutes, and after that, rinse your face with cold water for another 2 minutes (total 4 minutes)

Believe it or not,
I never knew what 4 2 4 method is before..
And i never knew, massaging our face is very important to stimulate our blood circulation in face, in order to make our skin healthy and glowing.. (aha, look who's just learn new things? me!)
|Jeanice Lie also share her experience about make up and skincare|
About her experience on skincare and make up,
She is a beautiful blogger, and also co owner of Lavie Lash
Looking forward to meet this beautiful girl again someday!
Honestly, I am more into skincare products than make up since this mid year,
I discover that my skin condition is very BAD,
My problem is dullness, dry skin with dry patches, pores, breakout, dark circle, puffy eyes, and everything!
But instead of fixing my skin condition, im not doing anything about it and keep buying make up instead of skincare.. can you believe it readers?
So after i know how bad my skin is, i start to concern more about my skin...
And buy more skincare than make up...
The Make Up Demo
Im so grateful i can come to this event,
Because i can meet the grazia indonesia team, and meet my personal favorite make up artist, Philips Kwok,
He can makes someone looks WOW without putting 'too much' make up, and for some event, he makes the model's face look very different, with his BOLD make up technique ! i totally love his work of art..
Check his instagram here
|Its Mr. Philips Kwok!|
I must say he is also a fun and very stylish guy!
Look at what he is wearing..
What a cool outift!
Fish scale texture sweater with jeans and gold sneakers..
When the MC ask the audience,
Who wants to be a model for Philips, i see a LOT of beautiful woman raise their hands,
Honestly, i WANT to raise my hand too!
I want to be his model too!
But i already become a model make up for Ms. Rina on my previous event
So my face was very heavy with make up products at that time...
|They choose Saskia, to be a model on that day :)|
And here she is,
Saskia become a model for Mr. Philips..
Mr. Philips also used all skincare and make up products from Beyond, wow.... :)
Okay readers, if you are ready, i write the steps, from cleansing, skin care, make up, and the finishing touch!
Mr. Philips cleanse saskia's face first, using beyond's cleansing milk and toner, this is the base step, and every make up artist do this cleansing part with a different way, some of them just put the cleansing milk on a cotton pad and start to do the cleansing process.
Some of them put the cleansing milk in a proper amount on their hands, and make a round massage movement. It based on their preference...
Beyond have a wide range of cleanser products, from water cleanser, oil cleanser, milk cleanser, facial foam cleanser, deep pore cleanser, and cleansing tissue! you can choose which one do you like, based on your preference, but i will give you a glimpse of their product, just click on the picture below and you will straightly go to the products explanation on Beyond website, and click here to see their wide range of cleanser.
Skincare Routine :
Almost all of the make up artist doing this before they start to do the make up. If every make up artist do this, it means we all must concern more about our skin. Remember, if we are wearing make up everyday, but not cleanse it properly, and also do the skincare routine, it will tortured our skin.
I still remember Mr. Philips use the same first essence and massage it a bit on saskia's face, it will make the essence absorb faster and deeper on our skin. I see how he massage Saskia's face, he puts the first essence on his hands, and rub it to make the essence warm and easier to absorb, and then massage it on Saskia's face
|Click this picture!|
As the base, Mr. Philips used Beyond Ideal Finisher (as a prime) and bb cream, and once again rub it on his hands, and then applied it on model's face. The way he applied it on model's face is similar with the way he applied the first essence. He didn't use brush to applied it, so it will gives a natural look on the model's face.. (that's why i love Mr. Philips make up art work, it will shows your natural beauty, rather than make it looks fake). For the last touch, he used Beyond face powder to set everything up in a natural way!
If you have oily skin, you can also use their sebum control powder, it will absorb your excess oil like a blotting paper, and its translucent!
This is the Ideal Finisher we were talking about, click to the picture to go straightly on Beyond site, and read more about this product. I tried this on the back of my hand before the event start. The texture is thick and moist, and i think it will makes our make up stays and give a little glow effect.
This is the sebum control powder, it's a compact powder that act like a blotting paper on your face. It absorb your oil excess in a good way. The colour of the powder compact is white, but don't worry, because this powder is a translucent powder.
|What a cute packaging|
Eyes Department :
And now, for the eyes department, i found something really interesting, because this is also a new trick i learn from Mr. Philips, i learn to draw my brow using a spoon! He says, spoon will never lie, and will gives you a steady and perfect eyebrow arch! So no need to buy those eyebrow shaper (usually in korean make up line store), and yes, just use your spoon.. as simple as that...
Mr Phillips first use Beyond's orange lip crayon to prime Saskia's eyes to make the eyeshadow stick longer, and after that, he used the lighter eyeshadow color to draw saskia's inner corner of the eyes, and use a darker shade to raising her eyes and makes it appear larger, draw a cat eye liner style on Saskia's eyes using a spidol look a like eyeliner from Beyond (he says this eyeliner is sooo easy to use), and put a little mascara to make her eyes appear bigger...
(Psstt.. you know what? Mr. Philips actually take off Saskia's scotch in the beginning, but he still can make a massive change on Saskia's eyes even without the scotch)
To cover her under eye circle, Mr. Philip used Beyond's highlighter compact powder to reflecting the dark circle color. He prefer to used highlighter than concealer, why? because concealer is tend to crack in our skin (i also experiencing this issue).
|Can you see how Mr. Philips put a lighter shade and darker shade of eyeshadow on Saskia's eyes?|

Cheeks and lips department
Cheeks and lips department are also my favorite, dont you feel the same readers? For saskia's cheeks, Mr. Philips used a light pink blush and applied it lightly on Saskia's cheeks, to make her face fresher but still natural. After that, Mr Philips draw a red gradient lips using Beyond's red lip crayon, and lipgloss to finish the lips! Because as we knew, gradient lips become korean girl's make up signature.
Here is Beyond's lips and cheeks range of color, you're gonna love it, trust me :)
|Lovely Up Pang Pang Cheeks in Pink|
|Save Us Blush|
You've seen their Save Us cute lipstick (the one with the animal shape, remember?) now, its the save us blush on. This Save Us blush has total 7 colors on their line, click here to see the whole cheeks products.
|Aqua Tinted Rouge|
There are total 8 colors on this line, and it looks like a lip gloss with a vivid color, click to the picture to see all the color. But for me, i love this pink fuschia color, how about you readers?
|Beyond Fairy Lips|
This is their lip gloss product, with total 5 shades, red, white, pink, creme, and coral. Their gloss has a shimmer particle on it, and not too thick glossy texture. I love this red shade the most, because red lipgloss will makes our face fresh instantly!
The Make Up Challange
After Mr. Philips done with Saskia's face, now it's time to do the make over contest! The MC asked us to practice make up technique we learn from Mr. Phillips on our friend's face. There will be a special gift for all the contestant!
Mr. Philips and the MC choose 3 contestants (with their friend as a model) and here they are... :)
All the participants are very excited to join this competition
And if im not mistaken, they only have 10 or 15 mins to done the look..
After the time is up, Mr. Philips check each contestant's make up creation on their model, and give them a good input, and plus, all the contestants and models get a prize for their effort...
|Mr. Philips give a constructive input to all the contestants|
The prize is probably a voucher,
Because they put it in an envelope and Mr. Philip ask them to share the prize (the contestants and their models). Its so fun! We have no time to feel bored at all!
The Door Prize!
After the make up challenge, another interesting moment happened when the MC announce the name of the dor prize winner will be announced soon, and ci Daisy take the fishbowl with all the participants name on it (we write our name on a pink card, and put it in a fish bowl).
