*InvitedYes I'm on a makeup craze at the moment, so when Manoah told me there was a chance to learn Japanese makeup techniques straight from the horse's mouth, I jumped at the chance!
BCL Malaysia, which stands for Beauty Creative Lab, is the main brand which brings us awesome Japanese products like Tsururi (pore-targeting skincare), BrowLash Ex (eye makeup great for beginners), and Makemania Data (makeup that is just awesome in general!).
Julie and I arrived together and were ecstatic to see all the make-up on our table!

*Bursts out laughing from own lame joke*
|Some of the skincare on display - this makeup remover seems cool!|
|Joanna was there too!!*kisses!*|
|They're all really bubbly, exactly how you see them on Japanese TV shows! Such fun people!|
|As the team is from Japan, we needed a pretty Japanese lady who could translate to English: |
Ms. Yuko, who has been in KL for 4 years now! =D
- Shibuya girl (Cool & Confident)
- Akihabara girl (Dolly & Natural)
- Harajuku girl (Pop & Sweet)
- Yokohama girl (Fairy & Elegant)
Our session was to recreate the Harajuku look (although Julie and I had a discussion, and I think I'm more Shibuya hahaha).
|2 choices of face powder - apply after base!|
To apply, just dab a little product on the puff, then press it lightly all over your face. Rub gently in a circular motion to set it - this will give it a glossier finish, kind of like airbrushing!

|Mr Tanabe actually went round the room helping us perfect our make-up, and I got help with my eyebrow!|
|2 colours: Pink - Light Brown; Blue - Bronze|
Makemania Data Gradation Tip Shadow is eye shadow for girls on-the-go! Like you're everyday eye liner, this eye shadow comes as a pancil, with the brush as the tip, and the actual shadow cleverly located in the cap! To use, all you have to do is put the cap back on and voila! More shadow to pretty up those eyes!

|Not a really good picture, but just wanna show you guys how the eyeliner should be.|
|Liquid liners: Marker type and hyper thin for accuracy!|
The second step is my favourite. Do you hate using eye lash curlers (as I do)? I've had friends who have had "accidents" with curlers where they've chopped off half their lashes, and they're just too bulky to carry around anyway. Browlash Ex Lash Curler Express eliminates all the hassle! When applying, hold the brush mid-swipe in the middle of your lashes (with the lashes pushed up) for about 3 seconds before finishing up.
For extra help with de-clumping, use the last mascara (only use a little bit) to separate your lashes - Browlash Ex Lash Sculpture.
|Tanabe-san only did half of the model's face so we could see the difference - what do you think?|
|Our "after" look!|
