Social media star Bretman Rock recently held his first-ever makeup master class in Manila, and we at Cosmo.ph had the privilege to sit in and find out all about his best-kept beauty secrets. (We also got ready with him, and here’s the video to prove it!)
The event, organized by local online shop MNL London, was attended by at least 280 people—each ticket cost P8,800, btdubs—and the cinema in Rockwell where it was held was jam-packed. It was INSANE.
For the first part of the program, Bret brought out his muse for the day, former Pinoy Big Brother housemate Ylona Garcia. During our little chat before the event, Bret revealed that he specifically chose Ylona because of her gorgeous morena skin.
The focus of the look was the metallic orange eye, which looked stunning against Ylona’s tan skin. After prepping the lids with some primer and warm orange shadows, Bretman took Make Up Geek’s foiled eyeshadow in Flamethrower, spritzed on some MAC Fix Plus on a flat shadow brush, and pressed it against Ylona’s lids.
"Ohmygod, I look like you!" Ylona screamed after she saw the finished product.
The second part of the workshop was more relaxed, where we saw Bretman casually do a full makeup routine—using red and green eyeshadows, no less. This was also the part where the audience got a rare peek into another side of the social media star, as he unexpectedly opened up about his personal life, including his family’s story.
Each participant of the master class received a certificate and a ridic loot bag filled with makeup worth almost P28,000. It even included brands that aren’t available in the Philippines like Anastasia, Tarte, and Morphe.
Sooooo where do we sign up for the next master class?
