Learning is Fun at HD Academy

Hi everyone! I hope all of you are having a great weekend. It’s been almost 2 months since my last post and I apologize to all of you guys. I wasn’t lazy to make some blog post but I just wanted to focus on one thing if I have started doing it so the lack of post.
I’m sooooo excited to announce that I graduated yesterday on the Beauty and Fashion Hairstyling Course at HD Make-up Academy. Yes I finally did it! I learned a lot of different hairstyles but I still need more practice. They say we have to master at least 5 hairstyles that we can interchange on different clients. But if I can do more, why not right? Final pictures of the photo-shoot will come after a month but I have few snapshots to show you guys.

Did I also tell you that I took their Beauty and Fashion Make-up course? I bet not but I believe I gave a hint on my last update. Anyway, I took the Make-up course in September and I graduated in October. I enrolled myself in the weekend class just so I can have more time to practice what I learned during weekdays.
I’ve been thinking about going to a Make-up school even before I started to blog. But because I had a very difficult schedule when I was working I didn’t have the time to do it. When I decided to leave my job I thought it was the right time to pursue my dream and so I enrolled at HD Academy.

I searched a lot of Beauty schools in Manila. I’ve read good reviews about HD from other beauty bloggers who also studied there. My mentors were Jeave Gabiana and Stef Chua Sing. Words are not enough to thank both of them for teaching us, their students. Learning wouldn’t have been this fun if they are not the teachers. I had great times in school and I will surely miss all of them. Until now I can still hear Sir Jeave’s voice when I am doing make-up (hindi pantay, hindi pantay) laughs.  Both of them are very patient and they have keen eyes to identify flaws on your make-up. They give comments and suggestions so that you can correct your work and make it look better. It wasn’t easy but it was fun.
Make-up school was full of fun experiences. I enjoy being with people who have the same interest as mine. We show our make-up to each other and talk about it. At first, I just really want to learn how to properly apply make-up not only to myself but also to others. The school exceeded my expectations; because of that I didn’t have a second thought to enroll in the Hair Styling class. I decided to pursue my interest in make-up as a career. This is what I love doing, there are still a lot of things that I have to learn but I do believe that practice makes perfect.

Below are few of the photos I took in the shoot of the Beauty and Fashion Make-up as well as the Hair Styling course. I hope you guys will like them as I do.

I also wanted to say Thank you to my models Milky Santiago and Anne De Leon. You guys nailed it!
Till my next post everyone. Enjoy!
