10 tips from the LOreal Paris Workshop

One of my absolute highlights of the PBEvent14 was the Thursday night L’Oréal Paris workshop. I love makeup, I love hanging with the girls and I love champagne and food. This evening combined all these awesome things!

Elsa Morgan, the L’Oréal Paris Makeup Director was sharing all her tips. She was so gorgeous, knowledgeable and charming. Serious girl crush material.

10 tips from the LOreal Paris Workshop


  • Always do your eyebrows. If you only have 2 minutes to do your makeup, include the eyebrows. The Super Liner Brow Artist pencil makes it so easy. The pencil has the pencil at one end, wax pencil at the other and a brush on the lid. Three products in one
  • Use a highlighter pen or concealer to sharpen the shape of your brows. Just along the outer third of the brows.


  • Don’t be scared to use mascara on the lower lashes. Just one coat and it opens up your eyes
  • A little highlighter in the corner makes your eyes pop


  • Highlight your cupids bow with a white kohl or a highlighter pen before applying your lipstick. This makes your lips appear a little fuller and poutier
  • To create a matt lipstick. Hold a 1 ply tissue over your lips and give a gentle brush with translucent powder


  • Don’t be scared to use your fingers. Use them to warm up and massage product onto your face including primer and foundation
  • Layering products a little at a time is better than one big layer. This builds up colour and gives it longevity
  • Foundation creates a flat face, add bronzer and highlighter to add the shape back
  • Let your skin shine through. Don’t make makeup too heavy and mask like

After the tutorials, we all got the opportunity to get our makeup done by the lovely L’Oreal makeup artists.
