Silly, blurry me left home without my phone and camera and Jacq kindly offered to share the pics with me. So all pictures posted in this post are all courtesy of Jacq. Thank you, Jacq!
We were pleasantly surprised to know that it is not just a workshop showcasing the new Autumn collection but also a chance for us to learn tips on how to contour and highlight. There is also hands on experience to play with the Autumn collection as well as the new Velvet Foundation (more suited for combination and oily skin).
Mindy gave us a very detailed step on step demonstration on how to contour and highlight our features using different shades of foundation. We also got personalised advices from the BAs who were in the workshop to tell us how to enhance our personal features.
We had a good time testing out the new Velvet Foundation because honestly, I wasn't impressed with Sheer Foundation. For my NC30 skin, I was matched to No. 205 which is a pink-toned medium shade foundation. Jacq, on the other hand was matched to No. 204, which is a warm-toned medium shade. (and Jacq is tanner than me!). This is a classic case whereby you HAVE to match the shade personally over the counter and the sequence of the labelling does not necessarily means anything. Jacq and myself did not managed to get all the swatches of the velvet foundation and only managed to swatch the following shades.

So here comes the joke of the day...... While having lunch with Jacq before the workshop, she asked me if I would get anything. So I was telling her since the workshop is at Escentials, I would like to try the Becca cream blush and probably just a lipstick (from Burberry or Chanel). Jacq was very determined to purchase the Velvet Foundation so that was on her to buy list. But after the workshop, I ended up with the following......
