Finally got the photos from the NYX workshop event!
So last Thursday NYX had a bloggers workshop event held in Café Film Noir. As NYX is a very dear brand to my heart, ever since January, when I had the amazing opportunity to visit the HQ and meet all the people behind the brand (I know, I know the vlog is not up yet. And I'm ashamed and standing in a "corner" right now) I knew that this event is going to be awesome! And it sure was! At the start Riti, our Baltic NYX manager, told us a little bit more about the brand, the brands history etc. Then Aija Ūdentiņa created this dark, bold and I would even say intriguing makeup look that I am itching to recreate with my own twist. After her Anete Ozoliņa from Parādi Modi took the stage to tell us about her youtube experience, how she made her first video and what opportunities has it brought to her. She also shared a lot of useful tips and tricks, that I am definitely going to use when I will finally start to do those damn videos! After that we got some time to mingle and chat with fellow makeup junkies and then it was time for the grand finale event: Mini NYX Face Awards! They gave us only 15 minutes to do the look! It was crazy fun to see how everyone got wild and just went in there! Haha
Anyway I am really hyped and inspired now to make even more bolder looks! Also, can't wait for NYX to finally have a store in Riga this year!
