NARS Workshop with Marc Christopher Gale

Got the Privilege to attend a NARS workshop spearheaded by Marc Christopher Gale today at Origins Rustans Makati. Marc Christopher Gale is one of the International Make Up Artists for NARS. He has over 14 years of experience as a Make Up Artist and is a favorite for Hollywood Stars like Paris Hilton, Minnie Driver and Justin Timberlake to name a few.

Marc is only here for a few days doing PR and promotion for NARSkin, their new skin care collections and also to conduct a few workshops for skin care and of course their makeup. I attended this afternoon's workshop with Maui and 2 other ladies, just the 4 of us so very intimate with Marc. He is amazing! We did a step by step starting from scratch.

Here's a pic of me and Marc after the workshop:

He is actually very tall, but the sweet guy that he is bent down to my height haha
