Junior reporters from Young Post spent a wonderfully enriching afternoon with American cosmetic brand Bobbi Brown last month, learning about the Christmas make-up trends. Now, the girls share their fabulous experience with Young Post readers. Heyna Wong: It was an interesting experience to attend the make-up workshop with Bobbi Brown. In the past, I used to think that cosmetics could be applied in any way to make girls look more mature. But now I know it depends on which colour combination you choose. I also used to think that doing make-up was time-consuming, but now I know it can be done in just three minutes. Stephanie Siu: I think the workshop was brilliant, and I learnt so many useful make-up skills. By applying the 10 basic steps, I can have a natural and pretty look. As a teen, I sometimes read beauty magazines to get tips on how to do make-up. But it is often quite difficult to follow the steps. This time, I had a chance to learn from a professional stylist face to face, and learnt the secret of drawing smooth eye lines. Some might say that teenagers are too young to be learning make-up. But I think, if it is a non-school day, it is acceptable. Of course, we shouldn't apply make-up on school days, but on the weekends, why not? Desmond and Yvonne were so generous, teaching us step by step and providing many make-up tips. Practice makes perfect. I'm sure my make-up skills will improve as I continue to practise. Overall, I really enjoyed this workshop. Gloria Cheung: The beauty workshop was definitely a fabulous experience. It was my first time to have make-up done by a professional make-up artist and it was amazing. I appreciated the way Desmond and Yvonne explained everything so patiently and kindly to us. They clarified so many make-up secrets and did a great job with their demonstrations. I got to know so much more about application techniques and usage of different products. I am looking forward to trying it all out. Miffy Yeung: I think the workshop was very interesting and I really enjoyed it. I appreciated the 10-step beauty lesson given by Desmond. I learnt a lot from him and I now know why my make-up always looked so weird before. The techniques we learnt are very useful for me in learning how to do a proper job in future. I realise now that I still have a lot to learn about beauty. This workshop provided me with an opportunity not only to learn from professionals, but also to write as a beauty journalist. I understand that I still have a lot to learn, but it was a great experience. I also really liked the Christmas present I received from Bobbi Brown cosmetics. They were great and I was able to keep on practising the skills I picked up in the workshop.
