Finally, I can share with you the reason behind my hiatus!

If you have been following me on my social media accounts, you would know that I went to a makeup school for three weeks. This has been my dream for a long time and it finally came true! Thanks, Daddy E for everything! 🙂

So I went to this makeup school namely, Maquillage Professional School of Make Up Artistry in Taguig. A bit far from Quezon City and took me 2 hours to get there. If you want to know how to get there using public transport, I will share it at the end of this post. Anyway, I enrolled in MP Module 1 Pro which includes Facial Beauty, Fashion and Photography MakeUp for Professional Artists for 50 hours.
Chroma Brushes which I love!

I know to myself that I still have a long way to go. Even I love watching makeup tutorials on Youtube, I haven’t tried them nor glamming up myself with those smokey eye look. I have never used faux/fake lashes.  My contouring skill is a mess lols. And most importantly, I am not comfortable doing someone’s makeup. But since I want to pursue my dream as a makeup artist for a living (Yes, you heard it right bye bye corporate life!), I have to look for a great avenue to start with and that is the reason why I enrolled to a makeup school.

In MP Module 1 Pro, you will learn the basic and the precise way of applying makeup products.

You will also learn the correct color selection for each makeup look. All in all, we have created 10 make up looks. I love that we have hands-on activity right after the discussion. And since this course was designed for aspiring makeup artists, we were always asked to bring our models which I find challenging so we can get to work with different facial features. No fret if you can’t bring someone, the school have in-house models to provide for 250php.People always ask me this question when they learned about this and that is – how much does it cost? It is 35,000php but I paid less (around 31,500php) as there was an on-going promo during the time I enrolled. It really does sounds pricey but later I found out that there are other makeup schools in Manila who offers higher than MP. Now I realized, putting yourself in the make up industry is not a big joke.

Sharing you some of my works. No harsh comments please, I’m just a newbie hehehe.

MP Module 1 Pro also includes an afternoon visit to MAC store (SM Aura Branch) where we got to meet their makeup artist – Ms. Bea.

She demonstrated on how to create a fresh daytime make up look using MAC products. MAC is one of the top high-end makeup brands in the country and their products are all tempting lols! I went home with MAC Prep and Prime and the 217 brush (blending brush) which for me is a good investment. I would like to have the MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre on my next visit.

Overall, I really had a fun learning experience! Aside from the things I learned from the course, I also got to meet these awesome people – Ate Joy, Ara, Ate Arlan, Bianca! I’m glad to be in this batch! I would like to thank Ms. Yuki and Teacher Mio for patiently guiding us on the entire course. Thank you for sharing your tips and techniques and building our confidence. Thank you for being a friend. I will definitely miss all of you!

If you aspire to become a professional makeup artist (like I do), I highly, highly recommend Maquillage Professional School of Make Up Artistry.

As promised, here’s how to get there if you are from Quezon City.
1. From Trinoma, take MRT going to Ayala Station (24php fare).
2. From Ayala Station, go to the BGC terminal and take the BGC Bus -West Route (12php fare).
3. Take the 3rd stop. However, if you approach the driver he will advise you to take the last stop (5th stop). I tried it for the first 2 sessions, but I find the walking distance the same if I take on the 3rd stop.
4. From the 3rd bus stop (3rd Avenue), go across Rizal Drive then turn right going straight to Robinsons Selections. After turn right and straight ahead until you see the Serenitea or Shoppesville entrance. Walking time is 5 minutes.

  1. Wow so nice naman ate Mhaan, sorry I wasnt able to come on one of your shoots. 🙁 Pag may pera nako gusto ko din mag take ng course ditey. 😀 Anyway ano gamit mong cam ate Mhaan?

  2. So happy for you that you've taken a significant step towards fulfilling your dreams. Good luck on this journey, and more success in your chosen endeavor! Cheers! — Maria Teresa Figuerres

  3. Aaaww.. Ang galing! 🙂 I also into make up and attended a bobbie brown make up lessons. Grabe kahit ang tagal tagal ko ng nagmemake up iba padin yung matuto from the pro. Great job on this one.

  4. Great job! I had no idea professional makeup classes cost that much. I remember a free (was it free?) workshop here in Davao several years ago — now I regret not attending it! Hope to see more of your artwork 🙂

  5. I always wanted to learn how to make up! I heard it takes a huge amount of investment. But they say it's worth it especially if you have a talent for it and if you're passionate about it!

  6. I took a Module 1 in MP and I had huge expectation since its a full course and an expensive school. But to be honest, I was quite dissappointed. I’m a beginner and hopefully wanting to learn more but what I have learned were truly the basics. And there were less discussion and more on practical work. It was nice to do practical no harm in there but it could have been a more fruitful class if there were atleast discussions done. (gets ba? Kaya nga pumasok sa school para may matutunan more than what youtube has to offer pero wala)

    Worst experience was I got laughed at with the product I used. I mean, its ok to be criticized and be told what to do rather than be laughed at. I still asked though what’s the problem, but got no answer….unprofessional

    On the other side, the people there are nice. I have no grudge against them but atleast I could have had my money’s worth.

    So I suggest find a beginner class in another school and maybe try the advance class in MP if you are after the school image.

    1. Hi sis. I’m so sorry to hear that. And I agree, it’s very unprofessional to criticized and laugh at someone just because of the products she/he is using. Alam naman natin, wala naman talaga sa makeup ang basehan kundi nasa skill/output yan. I personally admire those makeup artist nga who are using affordable products pero hindi halata sa output. Aakalain mo pang high end ang gamit nila. Anyway, just don’t let yourself get affected and keep soaring high in the makeup industry. Hope to work with you soon 🙂

  7. Hi Ms. Mhaan, I am a graduating student and planning to enroll in a makeup school. I am torn between MP and CAS. But MP is my first choice talaga. With this, I would like to ask if magpoprovide ba yung school ng makeup for us or are we going to bring our own makeup kit? I have my own makeups naman pero puro mga local brands kasi for practice lang naman tsaka you know na school girl hanggang EB lang yung afford ng budget.

    1. Hi Celestine! As far as I remember, they will send you a list of makeup to bring to class like light and dark shade of foundation, mascara and many more. In my case, I decided to bring my makeup to be more familiar on each of them and most of them are drugstore brands pa. But don’t worry, nagpapahiram din naman sila sa collection nila. 🙂 Goodluck dear!
