Estee Lauder Event + Celebrity Night

Saturday was a loooongg day! I had work since my artists had things to finish for my accounts, I attended an Estee Lauder Event and in the evening was my best friend Ivan's 24th birthday.

The Estee Lauder event was held at the cosmetics floor in Rustans Makati. Thanks to Diane who referred me to Pepper (he handles events for Estee Lauder) for allowing me to attend the event. It was a very intimate event which ran from 2pm-4pm. The people from Estee Lauder talked about the importance of skin care, its effects and its long term benefits. They also showed us demo videos on easy steps in applying make up, tricks and shortcuts. I had a wonderful time watching these videos. Amanda was the make up artist, she had worked with Estee Lauder for 2 years in the US and now she does free lance for Estee Lauder whenever they have events. She showed us how to put on foundation and set with powder, eyeliner, pouty lips and also how to achieve the smokey eye look with very easy steps! I sure was amazed!

The SA also tried this Gel Foundation on my face plus the Estee Lauder Signature blush in Plum Nuance on me and I swear It was flawless! I want to get the products badly! I reallyy had a good time, so for all Manila residents let me know if you want to attend this event too, I know they have one on September 26, 2009 in Rustans Shangri-La Mall! Let me know so I can give your names to Pepper :)

I promise to make a post to share the few tips they taught us that day! :)

Oh BTW here are the freebies I got from the event:

Ivan's celebrity 24th Birthday Celebration

Me and my friends are really loud and crazy. As communication arts graduates we have a deep connection with Movies, Television, Celebrities and Show Business. So for Ivan's 24th birthday party, he decided to come up with a theme. His theme was "Celebrity" .

You basically just had to come as a celebrity or as a character in a movie may it be hollywood or not. It was so fun, as usual me and my friends get crazy with each others company!

  8. In the early days, most lenders would only give out their funds after confirming that the applicant had a real good record of handling his or her finances. They could easily tell this by checking the credit history of the person applying for their loans.
