Solenn Heussaff's Live Makeup Demo with L'Oreal Makeup Designer/Paris

Solenn Heussaff, known as a model and an actress here in the Philippines, if you're not aware, is also a makeup artist.

I remember a few years back when I just learned about this stunning woman, I became intrigued about her because I found out that aside being a model, she is also a very talented makeup artist and she does creative makeup and special FX makeup, too! If you don't know, I not just enjoy doing beauty and glam makeup but I am also into special FX and avant garde makeup. That's why when I found out the awesome talent and skill of Solenn, I instantly became a fan.

Fast forward to this year when I got very lucky and honored to be invited to Solenn's live makeup demo as the resident L'Oreal Paris Makeup Designer in the Philippines at SOMA, Green Sun Hotel in Makati last July 12, 2016.

During the makeup demo, Solenn used products from L'Oreal Paris, specifically the True Match line. L'Oreal Makeup Designer/Paris celebrates the diversity of beauty and recognizes that each woman has a different skin tone, undertone, skin type, texture, and skin concern. In short, we, ladies, have our own unique "skin story". That's why L'Oreal Paris offers the True Match product line which delivers the perfect match for every woman's skin.

The makeup session was an intimate gathering so it was more easy for Solenn to teach and accommodate all her students. She was very helpful, she visits each table to check on us and see the looks that we're doing on ourselves and giving us more tips and tricks on how we can properly use the L'Oreal products laid out in front of us and which suits us best.

Yes! We all had access to test all of these amazing L'Oreal Paris products!

Face charts were also given in case we already have our makeup on and still want to try the makeup looks Solenn just taught us.

Okay, so we all know that Solenn is already a skilled makeup artist but it made me like her even more when she said she was not going to use other makeup tools. Instead, she would only use the applicators that came with the makeup products and her fingers! It just shows that you don't need a lot of makeup brushes to complete a stunning look. You only need your good quality makeup to put together an amazing look even if you're not really a pro. Unless you're a makeup artist, then you definitely need a lot of makeup tools! :)

Here's the second look that Solenn did on the model. Too bad I was not able to take a picture of the first look.

She managed to create that sexy smokey eyes using only the L'Oreal La Palette Nude and the brush applicator that came with it!

So, here's me trying on the L'Oreal lipstick in the shade Rose Fondu! I instantly fell in love with it! Just look at that color!

Of course, my day would not be complete without taking a photo with the gorgeous Solenn Heussaff! Such a shame I did not get to take a video with her but at least, I still had a photo op with her. :)

If you are interested, catch Solenn on July 30, 2016, 3:00pm at the Great L'Oreal Makeover in SM Megamall Fashion Hall GF Activity Area for her first live makeup demo + meet and greet!
