PHOTOS: Maven Magazine's Beyond The Blush 2

Last Saturday (September 15, 2012) was a day full of beauty and fun thanks to Maven Magazine's Beyond The Blush Beauty Blowout 2. The beauty fair was filled with numerous workshops, raffles and booths from partner sponsors and sellers.

The program started at around 1pm and VJ Bianca Roque of Myx was our beautiful emcee for the day. She was very bubbly and witty which kept the audience entertained. She looked really pretty in person and her dress, if I may say so, looks really good on her.

The workshop that really made an impact on me was the one conducted by Miss Karen Agustin-Ostrea of Global Image Management. She discussed topics ranging from identifying one's correct body shape, discovering color personalities to knowing the 7 levels of lifestyle clothing.

Benefit Cosmetic's makeup artist Miss Mica TuaƱo-Fuentes was also present to showcase the newest kits that Benefit now carries. She also did a quick makeup look with one of the audience members where she highlighted the key items to use when prepping up when in a rush.

 There were also other workshops from Prime Skin Asia, Tokyo Posh and Amplius.

The Face Shop was also one of the sponsors for the event and they conducted a makeup tutorial featuring their newest Son Dae Sik collection. I learned that Mr. Son Dae Sik is an acclaimed Korean makeup artist that has collaborated with The Face Shop in producing a new makeup line for the brand.  

All in all, the beauty blowout was really informative. I really enjoyed listening to the speakers about building confidence, knowing how to enhance body features and having fun with beautifying oneself. Plus, I was lucky to win one of the Nivea gift packs up for grabs during the program!

Here's a glimpse of my Maven loot that I got to take home after the event. I will be doing a separate post about the items inside so watch out for it!

I also got to meet Chrystal of The Kikay Mom. Hope to see you in other events, too, Chrystal!

Now, I am confident to say that I am a certified Maven!
