Color my world

Recently I have enrolled myself to make-up academy at Cheryl Cabanos Make-Up Acedemy (CCMA).  Have enrolled only for a Personal make-up class to further enhance what I already know or perhaps "correct" what I knew about make-up techniques...hehe ;)  Yup, and did you know that to achieve the "Smokey eyes" look, the stroke should be ascending and not horizontal?! :) ahh and thought those youtube videos were answer to ;))

I have yet to decide whether to take up diploma classes and take it one step further,  but for now, its been useful for my everyday look at the office...and taking the "no make-up look" further up a notch ;)  see the BEFORE and AFTER looks during our classes ;)...


  Before-- "excuse my fat face!  Boo!" =)


So happy to learn how to contour my face... I was able to make my square face look thinner...yay!  Achieve! :)

Some photos with Ms. Cheryl C. (in the middle) and classmate Cristy.

 And the "Smokey eyes" session was so much fun too..super photo op.. hehe =)

The Before Photo..and some professional students had to do a practical exam on my hair, doing the curly hair through the flat iron, i must say...good job! just that i look harrassed in this photo...sorry :)

This is Irene's Before photo

Cristy's Before look :)

Good Job on the curls! =) CCMA is not only for Make-up classes, they also do classes on Hair Do's..the total package especially for those students aspiring to be professional make-up artist..

AFTER "Smokey eyes" look...more practice though for me..I think :) I used the dark Brown Eye shadow...How'd I do??

Irene on her Blue smokey eyes

Cristy on her Dark brown Smokey eyes...same as mine =)

Teach cheryl had to style my hair to complete the look ...

 This is teach Cheryl..taking our photos...proud teacher!

Some more photo taking... excuse excited! 

Our "emote" look...smoldering look!!
