Make Up Workshop by Reiva Cruze of MUD New York

Are you a makeup enthusiast? Makeup blogger? Makeup artist in the making? If you are doing something related to makeup, I guess this blog post is for you. Personally, I don't know the art of painting, using a human face as canvass. My vanity kit includes only the basic stuff and I don't even own a brush! So, last January 14, 2011, I attended a make up workshop for the first time.

at Pure Beauty Serendra, wearing the red top with puffy sleeves..

A fellow blogger invited me to come to this event that was held at Pure Beauty in a posh place of Serendra in Global City. I'm glad I came because it was an opportunity to meet the lead makeup artist Reiva Cruze from the Make Up Designory (MUD) New York.

Reiva Cruze doing her thing..

Reiva Cruze basically taught us how to do the smoky eye makeup. Just sitting there, I was amazed on how she did a creative trick to make the model look hotter. I thought it was simple and I could memorize how it was being done, but I was wrong. Doing makeup, making yourself look more fabulous with colors is really not as easy at it looks. One needs some tutoring or else serious learning in order to master this art.
