A friend of mine, Sheila Khan whom I’ve known for quite sometime now, recently became a beauty consultant at Mary Kay. I’ve heard of Mary Kay but never really got around trying to trying their products, but thanks to Sheila, I had the opportunity to try it out! For free!

I trust Sheila when it comes to skincare and beauty, only because she has amazing skin and she’s a complete genius in terms of makeup. Also, she’s probably the most non-kedekut ilmu person I know of in terms of sharing what she knows. When she asked me if I’d like to come in for a free trial I was more than happy to oblige.

At first, I was a bit skeptical about the ‘free’ bit. Nothing is ever free, and I was pretty sure they were going to try to talk me into buying something or signing up, but I was happy to find out I was very wrong. Sheila and her mentor, Nurul sat there and taught me how to do basic skincare and some makeup tricks without even trying to sell me anything.

It started with them checking my skin type and providing me with Mary Kay skincare products to try. I was taught the proper way to cleanse, moisturize and mask my face (I’ve been doing it wrong all my life!) and right after, I was taught some basic makeup skills. It was basically a self-pampering session and beauty makeover (for free!).

I won’t reveal much, as I feel like everyone should try it out for themselves. But I will share with you a few of my favourite products and makeover look;

I’m currently trying the whole range of Botanical Effects Skin Care, so I’ll review on if it works for me or not after trying it out. But for now, the makeup stuff that I really, really fell in love with are these;

– Brow Gel. It’s basically a gel with a mascara-like wand that helps keep your eyebrows neat and make it look like you’ve threaded it. I hadn’t done my threading yet, but the after effect was amazing!
– Lace Coral Blusher. This triples as a blusher, highlighter as well as bronzer. I’m obsessing over the colour and texture. Perfect for most skintones.
– Love Lash Waterproof Mascara. I already have long lashes, but this mascara is perfect for me. It adds just the right amount of volume and helps it curl, as well as seperates it to make it look full. For those with shorter lashes, can always use the Lash Primer before using the mascara.

This is how the Love Lash Waterproof Mascara over the Lash Primer looks like, along with the Lace Coral Blusher, Brow Gel and eyeshadow from Mary Kay;

It was a good learning experience overall. A self-pampering session that I gained knowledge on how my skin works, as well as how to take care of it and a make over. It’s always amazing to look good on the outside, since it makes you feel good on the inside.

If anyone of you is interested in going for a free basic skincare and makeup session with Mary Kay, drop me an email with your name & handphone number to; deeperthanfashion@hotmail.com & I’ll refer you to my beauty consultant who not only will teach you but also, have fun doing it! 🙂
