The Red Lippie is Now MUD-Manila Certified!

May 13, 2012

If there is one makeup school I've been dying to attend, it will be the Make-up Designory (MUD) located at Serendra, which is said to be the "Harvard" of all makeup schools.

Well- just happy to share that I have finally experienced the MUD training through their Personal Makeup Class. There were only 4 other girls who came in for the same class plus moi. It was a 7-hour intensive makeup class which we really enjoyed.

Personally, this is my very first formal makeup class and I am surprised that I learned so much which left me embarrassed with myself. I first chanced this class in a buying site called Deal Grocer. After buying it, I told my friend Giz if she wants to buy one too because we've been talking about makeup even before our NS days if I remember it right and so she did.

While everyone was saying I was good or even very good (hehehe)  by some people through the shoots I've done before, I realized as a makeup artist, I am guilty of some misconceptions. I always thought that I know enough about eyeshadow application or eyebrow grooming, and yet in this class I was feeling like it was my very first time I applied makeup on my face. As if I threw away into the window everything I learned from my own experience and from the many videos I watched. There is no substitute for a one-on-one class but videos are great if an actual class is not available.

Just sharing to you some pics. One of the highlights of this class is the usual photoshoot:)

Overall, I can say that I am still a work-in-progress no matter how much people compliment my previous work. And if one really wants to be a serious makeup artist, there are ONLY three things that must be done to become successful:

To be a good makeup artist, just like in life, the key is to keep an open mind.  Because it is only when we keep an open mind that we start learning.
