Infinity Kose Beauty Workshop

I'm sorry if this post is long overdue, but as some of you know, my lola passed away recently and I was busy going to Loyola Memorial and going to masses for her last week that I really didn't have much time to blog - or do anything else for that matter. Her funeral was on Monday, though, so I can now resume my blogging duties. May my lola rest in peace. x

Anyway, after the Kultura event last week, I was also able to attend the Infinity Kose beauty workshop at East Cafe, Rustan's Makati, thanks to Sarah of Ms. Eggplant's Chronicles.

Ava, Keigh and I got there early because we were at the Kultura event beforehand and simply bonded over Gong Cha to kill time - another milk tea place that Keigh introduced me to (she first introduced me to Happy Lemon here).

The beauty workshops that I had been to before were always about how to put on makeup properly, so seeing tissue and cotton balls to get rid of makeup at every table was definitely new to me.

We were very lucky to take home samples of all of them in the end - minus the night cream.

Aside from sharing a brief history of the brand with us, she also taught us what I'd like to call the origami of folding cotton squares for beauty regimens, as well as how to apply skin care products and take care of our skin properly.

Since I still had to meet my relatives for my lola's mass, I was hesitant to get rid of my makeup and try out the products, but Ana grabbed the opportunity to do so right away!

Keigh soon jumped onto the bandwagon and was the first one to perfect the art of the beauty regimen origami!

Ava soon joined in, as well. And, yes, they used Ana's iTouch as a mirror. Bloggers are resourceful.

Happy, shiny ladies!

After the event, we were also treated to a buffet pre-dinner at East Cafe, and the food was delicious! I can't wait to go back there and have dinner for real.

Check out the Infinity Kose products at the cosmetics section of Rustan's Makati and get your dose of beautiful skin... if you can afford it! :p
