BDJ Box and L’Oréal Paris prepared something special to jumpstart our year, Bellas! Last January 9, the first BDJ Box Beauty Soiree of 2016 was was held at The Blackboard, Podium Mall. Entitled “Kickstart your New Look with L’Oreal Paris,” we were treated to hair and makeup workshops.
It was an afternoon of workshops and talks about makeup, hairstyling, and hair coloring from L’Oréal Paris Experts.
The event started with Hair Color 101 under Wee Manansala, Matrix Education Manager from L’Oréal Philippines.
Wee emphasized the importance of choosing the right hair coloring product. She also shared tips on how to choose the right color that suits your features and personality.
The next talk was with Aiky Nar, The Hair Asia’s Most Outstanding Makeup Artist and grand winner for hairstyling of Mega Fashion Crew Reloaded 2014.
Aiky shared different hair and makeup trends to look naturally beautiful this 2016. Using Beauty Minister Kate Alvarez as his model, he did the “Modern Femininity” look, which consists of light eyes, pink lips, and a modern bun (see end photo for the final product).
Blogger Kristine Roces modeled Working Girl Chic, which focuses on matte lips.
BDJ Bella Janine modeled the Youth Code, which has a playful vibe with hair in twists and braids.
BDJ Bella Jowee tried the “Age of Innocence” look, which is characterized by bold brows, nude lips, and nude makeup.
I was Aiky’s model for the “Evening Ease” look, which consists of a contoured face and bold lips.
Before the program ended, all the girls were given a chance to recreate one of the looks using L’Oréal Paris products. One lucky Bella was chosen and awarded by Aiky Nar and L’Oréal Paris for having a clean and beautifully done 2016 look.
