Hey guys :* I went to Il Makiage today as I told you yesterday.I got there a couple of minutes early and I waited a bit till the whole thing started.They seated us on some chairs and some random dude presented some of the products.First of all I want to stress out that there were only 3 ''makeup artists'' and there were 7 women ,including me.So there was not a makeup artist for every single one of us ,which wouldn't have bothered me if I hadn't been told that they needed 100 % confirmation that I could come because a makeup artist will come for me especially.So that really pissed me off :( I was given some very poor quality wipes to remove my makeup which I thought was really tacky.
Second of all when I finally got into the makeup chair which was after 25 minutes of waiting,I was appaled by the fact that the girl did not use and moisturiser and I was slapped on some cream foundation ,with a brush, which looked totally uneven and I had expected the girl to blend it in but no such luck because she went on to scratching the bejeesus out of me with a very coarse powder brush,thus removing all of the foundation she had previously put on.The blush was quite ok ,except for the fact that I had one cheek pinker than the other :)) And one thing that wasn't really her fault was that the foundation after 10 minutes was gently sliding off of my face.
She went on to the eyes and there I can't really say much because the pictures will speak for themselves.
I just want to mention that at one eye I have a line with blue continuing towards the nose and at the other one I don't .
The lips were awful ,I said peachy -pink and she applied a reddish -coral colour and she didn't even follow the natural shape of my lips ,and they looked beyond atrocious.And that completed the 15 minutes I spent in the makeup chair.
All in all I just couldn't bring myself to tell her that I think it's quite bad because she was such a doll and we talked a lot about how I want to become a makeup artist and all that jazz,and I really liked her but she wasn't very good,unfortunately:(
I leave you with the pictures which don't quite capture the atrocity of the foundation but believe me ,I felt like a fool all the way home and I felt as if everyone was staring at me :(
What I did like was the fact that they didn't try so hard to sell me the products ,the girl was nice enough and she just told me that if I was particularly interested in something that was on my face she would write it down and I could buy it.I bought a deep purple shade that caught my eye ,and not because I felt pressured to buy it but because I genuinely liked it :)
In the end I can't say it was the crapiest makeup I ever had on but for a makeup company that prides itself in profesionalism and high quality products ,you would think they would take extra care of the persons they hire because they are the first people potential customers deal with.
That's all for today folks :) Hope I at least entertained you with my sad story :)
P.s. Has anyone had a similar or perhaps better experience with Il Makiage? cause I'm really curious...please do share darlings:*
