Style Essence Grooming Workshop [ Giveaway Completed! ]

As part of Singapore Mom Blogger‘s first birthday bash, I attended a fun filled basic grooming and make up workshop generously sponsored by Style Essence.

The first thing we did was to get measured and have our body shape determined. I’m supposed to have an hour glass body shape (only because my shoulders and hips are roughly of the same size, motherhood does wonderful things to your waist). I then received an useful card to remind me of the clothing styles that suits my shape.

During the workshop, we went on to discuss and find out our individual specifics like color tone,  receive more in-depth, practical information on the dressing style that suits your body shape, color matching, print selections and also fashion trends. Florinda (Flo Mummy) the coach did such a good job that atmosphere was very girlfriend so you feel comfortable to ask what you really, really want to, without feeling embarrassed.

After the style part, we moved on to my favourite part of the workshop – Skin Care!

We cleansed (the cleanser cleans, exfoliates and tones), moisturised and used an amazing mask on ourselves. it was a hands-on session that allowed some of us to practice how to maintain our skin on our own. I was pretty impressed at how well the skincare products worked although, to be honest, I went to the workshop not expecting much from the Mary Kay product series.

TimeWise® 3-In-1 Cleanser to cleanse, exfoliate and refresh.
The TimeWise® Even Complexion Mask which left one side of my face better than the other. This is for you if you like to see visible results right after. Look at the junk (see the small black dots that fell onto my paper) that the mask extracted from my skin!

After the skincare session, we moved on to hands on priming and make up application. Again, I like the hands on session, I could see that it helped build confidence in the ladies who do not apply make up often. The end results of their own work was fantastic.

The trainers do go around to provide guidance and tips to each participant, so no one needed to worry even if anyone were unsure.

At the end of the session, we were photographed individually so that we could see how we have transformed ourselves. It’s really empowering to know how you can make yourself look better.
