#MGxMACTechnique 2 : Invitation Out

The topic of the second #MikkiGalangxMACTechnique is Invitation Out and during the workshop Em and Mike of MAC Megamall demonstrated their specific techniques when it comes to day to night looks. Before the demonstration, Em, which used to be my counter artist/consultant at MAC Trinoma, where I would be crazy about new lip colors (haha), explained how makeup technique is unique to each artist and that these workshops provide exposure to what can work to an individual. Now, here are the key learnings from the event:
1. Volumizing lips can be done through Em’s Cupid’s Bow technique
2. Selecting the right colors for you using the Color Chart
3. Blending comes after placing the product/pigment or after drafting a certain shape – Mike’s technique is actually very good because versus creating an illusion of a shape right away which could lead to a very precise shape, blending after can allow for correction and further softening of the edges. He would put for example, the contour, highlight and blush in one step, and then blend both afterwards.

#MGxMACTechnique 1 : Invitation Out

The first #MikkiGalangxMACTechnicque was an afternoon full of discovery! Dar of MAC Rockwell taught us unique makeup techniques for the eyes, brows and lips to create the effects go beyond just feminine. I like how he took a spin on the typical cat eye, brows and red lips. Here are my key learnings (especially read the brows which made me purchase the new brow liner! haha)

1. Cat eye will work better with a contoured eye – especially for Chinita eyes, and can be extended or thickened further to create an uplifted effect. It is also best for droopy and tired-looking eyes.
2. Brows should be blended well in the inner part to create a fading effect. A shadow or soft pencil can be used to do this. The precision should come in the arch and the tail.
3. Perfectly contoured lips by concealing dark areas around the lip area.

MG x MAC Technique

I am very happy to announce that I will be having my first makeup workshop series with MAC. MAC has been one of my favorites in the cosmetics industry because of its belief that “makeup is for all racs, all sexes and all ages.” And makeup should be like that. My first topic is Femme to Feline which i can relate to because I always strike the balance between the two. This workshop is free to everyone and limited slots available. See you there!
