I was positively delighted to have attended the Burberry Autumn Luxe workshop yesterday with dear blogger friend Ruby from Miaka's Life and Loves. We had a blast! The workshop introduced the Autumn collection and also showed us how we could contour and highlight our face.
That is Ruby and me without makeup. I am determined to bring home the Velvet Foundation so I wanted to try it to see how it wears. The workshop was an intimate affair with only 5 participants.

Mindy the MA at Burberry proceeded to show us how to contour and highlight. The sweetie pie model has perfect skin! I love the natural understated look on her.

There are altogether 8 shades available. In our excitement to swatch, I missed out on a few other shades, sorry!
One thing to note though, the shades don't necessarily get darker by the number. I was eventually matched with 204 which was warmer whereas Ruby who is paler than I was, was matched with 205 which has a pink undertone. You need to get matched physically or you might get the wrong shade.
I find Mocha Glow Lip Cover very intimidating. I don't think it is for everyone.

Finally a shout out to dear Meg, whom I met at the workshop. Hi sweetie! I wish I could stay longer to talk but I had to rush off for my pole class. I hope to see you around. :)
