I’m lousy with makeup, at least not until this past weekend at Opal Makeup Class. I entered with virtually no makeup gadgets yet left feeling like a pro. Truth is, this class was informative.

We double tap on the Instagram, 500px, Pinterest pictures on daily basis because they look appealing, enhanced (for lack of an appropriate vocabulary), not the ordinary everyday images we view off line. We love the perfect looks, the artsy, concepts and ideas of how the photographs make us feel; that we can all relate to. But when it comes to Makeup artistry, girl, know that some artistes are born and some are made!

Personally, I have an eye for what looks good, artistically… pfft! I am an artist [smh]

As I mentioned in one of my earlier posts, Baaba is an amazing MUA because in addition to her craft, she has a beautiful soul and the desire to learn, and teach as well. Humble people have listening and teaching tendencies, and that is crucial because they aren’t selfish and wouldn’t want to keep their knowledge to themselves.

When I entered the class and saw everyone else with their personal makeup kit, I thought to myself, “Girl! You are not serious at all! Look at them!!”

Together with other makeup artistes like Sandra who happens to be GH actress Nana Ama McBrown’s personal MUA, Vera and Alfie Adjaba, the makeup class looked quite successful. The students were young and teachable, and the facilitators were prepared for us, fully. There was one other lady, who provided us with skin care tips and some DIY formulas for… (ha! I aint gonna tell you this one. It came with the GHC150 package). There was a surprise turn up by one of Ghana’s proudest MUAs Ashiake Momo who shared a few words of encouragement and set off to a different location with her team to work. I felt equally honoured to have had her presence there to support this event. I’d love to meet her again, and perhaps work with her.

At the end of the class, we’d covered basic makeup tips on eyebrows, foundation application, countouring and highlighting, brushes, eyeshadows, products branding, pencils, types of eyelashes and how to wear them, and most importantly basic skin care tips.

Joseph Carlyle was also present to capture photos you’ll be viewing below in a moment.

O! One line that keeps echoing in my head from the event; “the brows aren’t twins, they are sisters and never the same” so it is actually alright to have both brows unidentical after making up, only that the difference shouldn’t be obviously noticed. Lol.
