Warning this is a huge post: *gg*
A few days ago, I was invited by L'Oréal to get a make over in a gorgeous looking cube on Graben. Why the cube?
It was the Vienna Fashion Night and because of that, one could just go into that cube on Tuesday and Wednesday and get a make over - hair and make up!! Quite an awesome deal and that for free.
A few impressions:
How stylish is that? I wanna have that cube in my garden!! The theme of the make up was "Colour Blocking", which you hear everywhere at the moment.
Well and now the horror story starts.. I wanna say right now, that it's NOT L'Oréals fault! What I'm talking about? The make up artist who "violated" me. I asked - the make up artists were hired and interfered by a beauty agency.
I had bad luck, cause the others definitely did a better job, but my "make up artist" did everything wrong. Everything one can do wrong. I was truly shocked.
I asked for a flashy colour blocking look, I mean that's the freaking theme, but she seemed overwhelmed by that task. I asked what this name meant (of course I know what "Colour Blocking" means) just to test her, but she couldn't answer that. Look at that workstation:
It took her about 30 minutes to apply !one! eyeshadow and it was so uneven that she tried to fix it for 20 min, with a fucking cotton bud and make up wipes. It felt like she was trying to scrape my lid off. She didn't succeed to even it out..
That's the end result, you can cleary see the "unevenness" and that it is just covered with a nude shadow on the left side. Again it took her 30 min for this:
The lips were okay, but she did lipstick - lipgloss - lipstick.. Furthermore, I asked for a flashy lipstick (again colour blocking) and this was her choice:
The worst thing was that there was NO hygiene. She didn't clean the brushes she used on the last person (bad brush quality as well), I asked too late and she even tried to put the mascara on with the wand that was in the mascara, but I stopped her in time. Just think about how many germs were on that one wand..
The hygiene thing was a general problem. All the make up artists worked that unhygienic.. One thing was sure, I had the worst make up artist, a friend of mine got her make up done as well and look how lovely she looks:
I mean this is super simple, but at least nicely done.
I'm really sad, cause this was such a gorgeous idea from L'Oréal and the quality of the L'Oréal products was really great. I feel bad writing this, but well this was my experience.
It has nothing to do with L'Oréal itself, but it's an example of how many people who claim to be "professionals" have no idea what they are doing and the people who put their faith in them are the ones who loose.. Imagine this "make up artist" at a wedding.. The poor bride..
Well, but the idea itself was gorgeous, they also had a little raffle:
One could win lipsticks, I didn't win. *gg*
I also got a goodie-bag, which I'll show you soon. Did you get your make over? How was it?
