I love makeup. Nuff said. And oh what joy it is to be invited by the Don Chan to another event that revolves around the very thing I love.
And what is the next best thing to makeup?
JAPANESE MAKEUP PRODUCTS & TECHNIQUE.
I cannot stress enough on how fantastic Japanese makeup products are. They are affordable and of very good quality (even better than most expensive departmental store favorites). And to bring out the best results from these makeup from the land of the rising sun, you need to acquire the proper makeup techniques. Especially from a professional makeup artist to the stars from Japan, who is also the lead makeup artist for K-Palette's Product Development, Noriko Imura-san.
|Somehow there is only 12 out of 20 here. The rest were busy browsing the Sasa products. Temptation IS hard to resist!|
On the 27th July 2012, 20 exclusive female bloggers were chosen by Don Chan to attend an exclusive K-Palette makeup workshop conducted by Noriko Imura-san at the Sasa BSC. K-Palette is famous for their '1 Day Tattoo' eyeliner that promises 'no more panda eyes!'. Their product line up consists of incredible eyeliners, eyebrow products and fantastic concealers.
Check out the photos taken from the event and see what you missed out on! (with my humble iPhone, ahem. Don't judge.)

|Go for the Super Black to create powerful, impressive eyes. Deep Brown makes your eyes look softer and more natural, and can create a dolly look too.|

|These are my favorite products from K-Palette. And I was stoked to find them in the goodie bag!|
|THIS IS MY FAVOURITE. You can create a beautiful eyebrow with this twin headed eyebrow applicator. The color is deep enough to conceal areas of your eyebrows and it's gold pearl allows easy creation of soft looking fluffy eyebrows. RM59.90.|
|The glittering powder tightly coats your eyebrow and creates a natural look. If the applicator no longer leaves sufficient powder on the eyebrows, put the cap on, twist the container two to three times and reapply.|
