Laura Mercier Beauty Workshop

Finally working on my backlogs. Be proud. :p

Sometime last month, Sarah Tirona of Ms. Eggplant's Chronicles invited me to another Laura Mercier workshop at SM Makati - this time at East Cafe.

If you have been following my blog for a while, then you should know that I attended the Laura Mercier Flawless Face workshop led by Jeffrey Tasker in October, as well.

As always, I was an early bird at the event, though, and the first thing that greeted me when I sat down was this awesome scented candle that I instantly fell in love with:

Love at first sight smell!
Will be writing a separate blog post on this.

Unlike the Jeffrey Tasker workshop, though, we had a more intimate crowd of bloggers this time around. And intimate crowds are always better than huge crowds, in my opinion. :)

The pretty girls at my table.

The model of the night was none other than the woman who invited us all to this great event, Sarah Tirona. And the makeup artist was the very cute Qua, whom "certain bloggers" couldn't get enough of. ;) Hehehe. Sayang talaga siya!


Qua taught us some very helpful tips on how to apply makeup, such as how we should dab on our foundation and concealer very lightly instead of spreading it around. Like Jeffrey Tasker, Qua was also very funny and kept us all in giggles. I think that's what I love the most about Laura Mercier's makeup artists: their ability to keep everybody in good spirits. :)


Then came my favorite part: the food!!! I love the food at East Cafe. In my opinion, they have some of the best and most eclectic Asian cuisine in Manila (that I've tasted so far anyway).

Gyoza, spring rolls, complicated noodles and sushi galore. I loved the spicy ones best, though. I spent my best years in Bangkok, after all.

And speaking of Bangkok, phad thai! Oh yes!

After the food came, Kiss Kiss unfortunately ran out of battery, so I had to steal the rest of the pictures below from other bloggers (I don't remember who I stole all of them from, so please let me know if any of these pics are yours, so I can give you credit as needed :)

The early birds.

With the rest of the girls.

After the makeup workshop, we were also treated to an exclusive walkthrough around the perfume area of Rustan's. Will also be writing a separate post on that. :)


After that, I needed my caffeine fix, so some of us headed over to Starbucks. And look at the tiny taster cups! Aren't they awesome? I completely forgot to take one of those tiny cups home, though. :( I would've totally used them as shot glasses.


Thank you so much, Sarah, for this experience and to Laura Mercier for having me once again. :)
