After the Alpha-H information seminar and a quick lunch break (I had a delicious salad from Grill’d) we were lead back into the conference room to find it had been transformed into a makeup studio with tables of three, a little mirror and a goody bag with some Face of Australia products that we would be given lessons on using to create looks from the Face of Australia Look Book, created for the ABBW. The gorgeous Tina from Face of Australia (and blogger behind Chasing Elixir), along with makeup artist Kirsty Delores took us through the two looks in the look book: Angelic Nude and Sleek Sophisticate.

Inside my goody bag was:

  • Face of Australia Purifying Cleansing Wipes
  • Mineral Therapy Bronzing Pearls
  • Mineral Therapy Illuminating Pearls
  • Mineral Therapy Blush in Sheer Mauve
  • Colour Max Eyeshadow Palette in Gold Mine
  • Liquid Eyeliner in Black
  • Mechanical Eyeliner Pencil in Black
  • Mineral Lip Shine in First Kiss
There was another really pale, frosty, nude lipstick in my goody bag but I gave it to Steph who I was sitting next to since I knew it wouldn’t suit me. We used Face of Australia Lasting Looks Foundation and Loose Powder first as our base while following along with Kirsty who along with her model was projected up onto a screen. Tina talked it through with us on the microphone.

As a self confessed makeup addict it was loads of fun to get really hands on and play with makeup. I’ve never had a makeup lesson before and it’s something I’ve always wanted to do but been to shy to actually follow through with it so I really enjoyed it.

Here I am with my take on Angelic Nude and Sleek Sophisticate (I took progress shots during masterclass!):

I’ll review the products we were gifted with over the coming weeks and post a complete and comprehensive review but I really liked them. The liquid eyeliner was the stand out product though and always garners heaps of praise, I was really happy to discover that it lived up to the hype.

4 Responses to The ABBW Part 5 – Face of Australia Masterclass

  1. I really do like FoA’s items. Before this year, I would never have taken another glance at them. Now, I’m all over them. Their primer especially is the hero , I think! I really like that they did a masterclass instead of a seminar as well. Was heaps interesting to be able to get our hands dirty, so to speak.

      It was a nice way to break up all the information seminars and things and get hands on. Yes I love the primer and the prices are so good too!

    You’re such a diligent student :D great look on you!
    I played with my prodz and watched the screen but didnt do it on myself.

      I was having loads of fun! Was devastated though when I realised that I’d taken off all my makeup and there was no mascara or concealer in the goody bag, my two essentials before I walk out the house!!!! Also I noticed as I was going through the photos that as soon as the winged liner went on my hair got shaken out, funny how as soon as your makeup goes up a notch in the style stakes you adjust your hair to suit!
