Estee Lauder Beauty Class With Mr. Vincent Xu (Estee Lauder's Global Make Up Artist) Day 1 (20 Sept 2014)

Dear My Readers,

If you are following my blog from the very first time..
Im sure you've seen my posts about me, joining this kind of event...
Beauty event is something i CAN NOT resist...

Because i always interested in art,fashion,and beauty world..
And im looking forward to meet new friends, sharing the same passion and meet the expert of art, fashion, and beauty world...

Tell me readers...
What's your passion in life?
Im sure you have hobbies, and interests beside just working..
(Or are you one of them who are lucky enough to work on the field you LOVE the most?)

For me,
This event is one of many ways to fulfilling my needs of being a better beauty blogger....

I saw this adv on LavieLash instagram,
And i signed up to join this as a participant...
And i came with my bare skin, but i manage to put on a little eyeliner and mascara..
Im ready to following Mr. Vincent Xu make up tricks step by step..

Sorry, this was taken by my front camera... bad quality picture..

But when i arrived there, i met 2 familiar face i've met before...
They are Mr. Erfan and Ms. Prisiella :)
Yes, i met them on Micro Essence launching event in Sogo Plaza Senayan last June :)
And Mr. Erfan asked me to be a model for Mr. Vincent Xu!!
And i didn't find any reason to say no to this BIG opportunity :)

So, before we started the event,
They once again cleanse my face, and i'm ready to get my make over
Im so excited! its almost like a kid got chocolate treat from their parents!
That's exactly how i feel, readers....

Make Over by Mr. Vincent Xu 

Our theme that day was Glamour Night look, so this look is basically our HG look to go to the party or any evening event... IF we want to look stand out, than doing smokey eyes with red lips is our first choice :)

I will try to write here step by step,
About how Mr. Vincent Xu applying make up on my face...
I must say his tricks really helpful for me..
Because he also do shading on my face ( i never able to do shading technique before)
1.  Skincare Routine

He applied Micro Essence on cotton pad and pat it on my face,( FYI i've used this since June) and after that he applied Advanced Night Repair 2 on my face and massage my face a bit so it will absorb well on my skin.
Doing skincare routine before make up is very important, not just so our skin will keep hydrated all day long, also, doing this routine will hold your make up longer because your skin is prepped well before...

Before i learn the importance of using skincare products, my skin is very dry, with dry patches everywhere, uneven skin tone, and still far from just 'normal condition' so when i applied my make up, like foundation, or face powder, it wont looks good because all the dry patches on my face... :(

So yeah, i realize buying skincare products is kinda investment for a lifetime for us... 
 Micro Essence + Advanced Night Repair 2

2. Complexion 

First,i remember he applied Illuminating Perfecting Primer using Estee Lauder's foundation brush just to half side of my face.. so we can see the different between left and right side of my face (but he finished my half face after that.. hahahaha)...

Second, he used estee lauder's HG foundation, it is Estee Lauder Double Perfecting foundation, and mixed it with ANR2 serum to make it looks glow on my skin, still using the same foundation brush from Estee Lauder But i didn't see the shade he chose for me (duh, my bad) to covered my dark circle, Mr. Vincent using this magic pen called Double Wear Brush On Glow BB Highlighter... Oh God.. this is what i NEED in my life..  And patting Double Wear Stay In Face face powder, this time using powder brush from Estee Lauder, to set everything and make it long lasting on my face :)

Here is the product used on my complexion department...                          

3. Eyes Department

This is the most interesting part of doing make up, they said, eyes is the window of our heart... And this is absolutely TRUE... this is the most tricky part pf doing make up (beside wearing a bold or soft lipstick).
For the first step, he brush my brow with eyebrow brush (it looks like a mascara brush) draw my brow with Double Wear Stay In Place Brow Lift Duo, 

I learn much from him how to draw my eyebrow, my conclusion about how i should draw my brow is : i must draw it not too thick, and using a soft brown color.... hehehhe...

For my eyes, Mr. Vincent choose arctic zinc shade from Pure Color eyeshadow, because he wants to make a bold smokey eyes for me :) along with Double Wear Zero Smudge Liquid Liner and More Than Mascara


4. Bold and Glam Lips

He used just 1 product on my lips, and it is Pure Color Long Lasting lipstick in Red Tango shade, using Estee Lauder Lip Brush, and once again i learn from Mr. Vincent how to draw my lips...
This is how he draw my lips

Mr. Vincent is applying pure color long lasting lipstick on my lips, and the texture of the lipstick itself is moist, not matte or satin finish, but maybe because it has a strong color, the color is pretty long lasting on my lips, (lasting power is about 4 hours).

5. Shading and Contouring

When Mr. Vincent Xu, almost finish dong my half side face, 1 participant asking him about how to do the contouring, (i should thanking her, because i need this as well, my face is flat anyway).
He used double wear powder in a darker shade, using the same powder brush, and this is how he contouring my absurd face LOL..

Documentation of @dennyirawanphotos

You can see he's using Double Wear Stay In Place Powder one or two shade darker from my skin tone, and apply it as a bronzer...
As a conventional person, i thought bronzer is the best tool to do the contouring or shading, but now i learn to use darker shade powder to contour my face

6. The Final Look  
Now he is finished doing some magic on my face (not just half) and im very happy with the result....
Here is the result, i think i must learn how to do bold make up like this, because usually, i just pick one, between bold eyes or bold lips.

Thanks God im wearing neutral color outfit that day... (by @dennyirawanphotos)
I can see how my nose appear smaller and higher after shading and contouring, and also my cheeks and face appear better after the shading...

Im not sure about what im doing in this picture (by @dennyirawanphotos)

But i can say that im happy with the result...
How can i not happy?
Mr. Vincent Xu is the global make up artist for Estee Lauder, so im on a right hand :)

Mr. Vincent Xu, Me, Mr. Erfan (Estee Lauder's PR)

Its a happy day for me readers...
Learn make up tricks from Mr. Vincent Xu is my intention,
But learn make up tricks and become his model is a big prize for me, believe it or not :)

After this event, i had a little chit chat with Mr. Erfanand he invites me to another Estee Lauder's event on 21 Sept in Sogo Plaza Senayan :) and once again i become a model for Mr. Vincent Xu :)
Once is a big prize, but become her model twice, is a blessing for me :)

Mr. Vincent is taking picture with another participants
He is different from a few make up artist i met,
Mr. Vincent is very friendly, and full of smile :)
He has no doubt to greet us first,
And he did ask all the participant to take a picture together before he done with my make up
Yes he is that great :) 

About The Event....

This event is a great chance for me to meet new people, i can see how Estee Lauder and Lavie Lash team are doing a great job on this event. It started on time, and participant's couch is full of pretty ladies :)
First start with a warm introduction from Estee Lauder's PR and make up artist (Mr. Vincent), and after that, Mr. Vincent started to do his little magic on my face.. hahahha...

After my half face is done, Mr. Vincent also open the answer and question session, of course this is a good chance for us, to ask many things from the master. For me, i got a good input on how to do the contouring and shading... 

Me and Mr. Erfan after the even, follow his instagram @erfanharyando
