Roughly a year ago, going to makeup school abroad was just a dream – a fun thought that I could go away the next year to give myself a break from being burned out from work, and hone my skills, even more. I just can’t believe that I’m here, this moment, where everything comes to an end. I have actually braved going to Singapore to study Advanced Bridal Makeup, and Airbrush Makeup, and finished it!
Mind you, it wasn’t easy. There were times when I just wanted to give up and thought that I wasn’t good enough. There were also moments when I seriously doubted if I could really do this. There were moments of heartbreak as well. But then, with the support and love of my classmates, and very good friends ( from highschool, and college who happen to be living in Singapore, quite a big group, actually ), I managed to lift myself up, be more determined, and persevere until I was able to improve, and hone my craft pretty well. Evaluating myself right now, I think I’m actually proud of what I’ve accomplished, I learned so much, and my hard work paid off. I’m definitely still a work in progress, but I know I’m going somewhere.
Here are some pictures of our last day in school, wherein we had our practical exams. My eyes were pretty bloodshot that day because I didn’t get enough sleep ( got really jittery ), my hair was horrible ( someone needs a rebonding sesh soon! ) but I’m just so proud of reaching this last leg that I can’t not afford not to post them!
