Confession: Laura Mercier + Albert Kurniawan = Blockbuster hit!

Attended the Laura Mercier Workshop last sept 16 at Rustan's Makati. PRO MUA Albert Kurniawan conducted the workshop featuring Laura Mercier's classic smoky eye palette. He did two looks- morning and night (using the same palette) and both were beyond beautiful.

Disclosing techniques and his secret tools to guests

the night look: Smoky Eyes using the Classic Smoky Eye Palette by Laura Mercier

I was lucky enough to chat with Albert Kurniawan. So the guy was from head-to-toe charming but what's so amazing about him was his humility that exudes naturally even if he has bragging rights under his name... Like, he does makeup for Heart Evangelista*, Lovi Poe*, Venus Raj* and then he taught Ms. Universe 2011 3rd runner-up Shamcey Supsup* how to do her own makeup, basically groomed her.
He was also Us Girl's Makeup Artist of the Year 2011* (with Ricci Chan). And i can tell you more things about him but i know you lovelies can always google him right? Like i did.

Our chat with the model Therese (whose picture you see above) was basically about his family and how he got started in the industry. I would love to share his wonderful story but it's not my life so i'd rather not but maybe i can mention that he took up interior design in college. Rest of the information maybe you can ask him when he conducts another workshop, at least you know what to ask to keep him talking ;) Promise though, next time i see him ill make sure to include everyone with the help of my video recorder, sounds like a brilliant plan to me!

Oh, oh, oh! He mentioned he looooves doing weddings. Putting my name on the line, get him to do your makeup for your special day and i'm sure it's going to be worth every penny.

P.S. Oh i remember he told me, "I think barely nude will look good on you." Snatched a lippies consultation from an expert!

Thank you Laura Mercier for organizing this FREE workshop for everyone. Thank you Albert for the tips and techniques.



Love and Peace,
Pattieta

*Before the workshop, the host mentioned the celebrities he has worked with so it didnt come from  him and then the US Girls Award i found out cos i googled. Hahaha. Thank you Google.com.

Where to see Albert in-action: Cosmo (page 3) and US Girls MUA 2011 Award.

Confession: Laura Mercier's Classic Smoky Eye Palette

"Smoky Eyes" is everybody's favorite and had been a mainstream look as far as makeup department is concerned, right? Problem is, not all of us are PRO makeup artist that  can create perfect smokey eye effect using just any black, gray, and white eyeshadow regardless of brand and tools to use. There are palettes in the market solely dedicated to create that look but sadly none was good enough to claim "the best" smoky eye palette tag.

My version of smoky eyes using my cousin as a model (used 3 brands to create that look).



Then enter, Laura Mercier's Classic Smoky Eye palette. And boy-oh-boy! is this palette real?
You get a cake liner (in Black Ebony), 4 shadows (in sparkling noir, granite, sable, and vanilla) and 5 brushes (2 double-headed). 

Laura Mercier's Classic Smoky Eye Palette

I wouldn't be dropping brand names but usually a smoky eye palette only comes in 4 shadows with a sponge applicator or a mini c-brush.  This palette will get you that PRO artist smoky eye look cos you have the liner, the shadows, and the brushes! Winner :)

This is totally a bet na bet product! Your thoughts?

Oh! Check back on monday cos i will be blogging about 
the Laura Mercier workshop + Blending genius PRO makeup artist Albert Kurniawan.

Love and Peace,
Pattieta

New York Fashion Week: Day 1, 2, and 3

New York Fashion Week

First three days are all about, OMG! OMG! and OOOOOMG!!! No more further introduction and feel free to look at my top choices.

Day 1

Developed an attraction to Nicholas K Spring 2012 RTW - organized shumbles.
There's a lot going on (read: power layering to the max) but Kunz's managed to put all the pieces so well together that it all stand out equally and look light and "oooh pretty" (first words i thought after i've seen the entire collection).

Richard Chai Love Spring 2012 RTW - flowers bloom this fall season for this spring collection.
The collection was not entirely floral as mint, mustard-ish green (is there such a word?), and tagerine also graced the runway but the floral pieces stood out among the rest.

Day 2

Jason Wu Spring 2012 RTW - it is a romantic-comedy movie, chick flix-- Love is all over.
I have so much love to give for this wondrous, indescribable, beautiful-beautiful collection. The sheer, bows, and flower petals were pretty sweet to perfectly "oomph" the whole look.

Yigal Azrouel Spring 2012 RTW - i am fun but i mean business.
Color palette is amazing. Accessories and bags will leave you speechless. Pieces of the collection are perfectly tailored for women. Right mix of fun and business. Collection i heart BIG.

Day 3

Prabal Gurung Spring 2012 RTW - It is the look.
The print, the style and especially the way pieces were cut to the right place. This is breath-taking collection. The pieces are very ladylike, definitely sexy but still classy and personally, that is just a powerful way to look at women and their different curves.

Vivienne Tam Spring 2012 RTW - the discreet beauty of prints.
The feel of the whole collection is very calm and light. I love how the prints were used as an ensemble or like an accessory but does not overkill the look. It's very spring-y to look at. I love it.

What are your top choices for days' 1, 2, and 3? What do you of my personal choices, bet or not?
