Two weeks ago, By Terry Malaysia held a make-up workshop just for a few of us bloggers over at KENS Bangsar Shopping Center where I met up with By Terry International Makeup Artist & Trainer, Sophie Kilian for the first time. Sophie, who flew in from France was present to introduce to us the brand, By Terry as a whole and its wide range of skin care and makeup products as well as to do a simple yet gorgeous makeup application demonstration with just five products.
This will be a picture heavy post so I will do less talking and let the picture speak for itself.
Give Me 5
Although there were a wide varieties of makeup products available, By Terry founder Terry de Gunzberg came up with Give Me 5 – the magic flawless makeup technique with 5 products, 5 steps, 5 minutes that will change your beauty routine.
Sophie start by removing model’s existing makeup by using PURETE DE ROSE Refreshing Cleansing Gel (RM189 / 125ml). That’s Kelly of Sunshine Kelly by the way 🙂
Follow by a face moisturizer, CREME DE ROSE Nutri-Lift Comfort Cream (RM359 / 30ml) on all over the face.
As we are indeed living in a hot, humid country, Sophie then prep Kelly’s skin with a face primer – Cellularose Brightening CC Lumi-Serum (RM329 / 30ml).
Step 1 (Unify the skin) – LIGHT-EXPERT Perfecting Foundation Brush (RM239 / 17.5ml)
This genious one-click foundation stick comes with a brush applicator for a flawless application. It is said to instantly plump up the skin, smoothes fine lines and wrinkles as well as to diminishes imperfections and erases signs of fatigue.
If you don’t feel like using the built-in brush applicator, you can always dispense some product out on the back of your hand and use a foundation brush to apply onto the face.
Step 2 (Embellish the lips) – BAUME DE ROSE (RM219 / 10ml)
This is one brilliant tip to prep the lips for lipstick, which I practise personally on every day makeup routine. Sophie apply BAUME DE ROSE, which is a lipid-replenishing, multi-protecting and multi-regenerating lip treatment onto the lips before moving on with the rest of the makeup. You must be wondering why put on lip balm at the beginning, not the end. This is because the lips will be properly moisturized by the time you finish the face makeup therefore lipstick will goes on smoothly and beautifully. Trust me, this is one tip that you should do every day before makeup.
Step 3 (Correcting) – TOUCH-EXPERT ADVANCED Multi-Corrective Concealer Brush (RM170 / 2.5ml)
One interesting fact I learnt is that Terry de Gunzberg used to work in YSL as Creative Director and she was the one who invented the iconic Touche Éclat. Touche Éclat is more of an under eye brightener than a concealer and TOUCH-EXPERT ADVANCED Multi-Corrective Concealer Brush is a corrector and concealer in one. This product can be used to correct the dark circles on the under eye, cover blemishes, wrinkles and shadow. As a result, eye will look more fresher without the dark circle thus erasing signs of tiredness.
This step is not crucial for those who are with dry skin or for those who live in a colder country but for us here in Malaysia, setting the makeup with a translucent powder is important. Sophie uses Hyaluronic Hydra-Powder (RM219 / 10g) to set the concealer on the under eye and lightly dust all over the face. I personally don’t like the stickiness from the foundation so this step although is not a must-do but it is a must-have for me.
Kelly requested for a straight eye brow. Sophie uses CRAYON SOURCILS TERRYBLY Eyebrow Pencil Definer to shape and fill in the brow.
Step 4 (Structure) – HYALURONIC BLUSH Hydra-Veil Print Flush (RM165 / 15ml)
For this step, Sophie recommended to use CELLULAROSE BLUSH GLACE Hydra-Radiance Aqua Blush, which is a liquid blush in a pot that gives a dewy finishing. Kelly prefer a matte finishing so HYALURONIC BLUSH Hydra-Veil Print Flush it is! This blush on the other hand is a liquid blush in a tube that dries down matte.
Remember the BAUME DE ROSE lip balm that was applied earlier? Blot off the access and apply any lipstick or lip gloss on the lips. By now you will feel that the lips are moist and lipstick goes on without settling into chapped lips.
Step 5 (Intensify) – MASCARA TERRYBLY Growth Booster Mascara (RM170 / 3.5g)
This has got to be my favourite product of all. This mascara contain lash serum that are enriched with Lumicoat® Care Technology for more volume, length and thickness. It is a growth booster mascara which visibly promote growth and volume on the lashes day after day. It comes in a few colors but the colors are dark pigmented so you don’t have to worry if the color on your lashes will be too light and obvious.
Now, the above Give Me 5 sequence is based on our skin type, weather and need. Here’s a video on how you can do it the other way.
I’m going to leave you with a few photos of By Terry range of makeup products that are available at KENS Bangsar Shopping Center.
