Face-to-face with Michelle Phan

Hi beautiful people! So, it's been almost a week since I saw Michelle Phan face-to-face. If you have been following me on instagram, you could have already seen the photos that I posted there as updates on the Michelle Phan meet and greet at Sydney city Myer last 2nd of August.

It was a Thursday here in Sydney that day and I was running late for the event as it was supposed to start at 5:30pm. However, I got lucky because when I arrived, Michelle wasn't on the stage yet. I couldn't say that there was a huge crowd but there were a lot of people waiting to see her and take a snapshot of or with the most famous makeup guru on Youtube. At around a quarter or 10 minutes to 6pm, she came down from the stairs and headed to the small stage that was set-up inside Myer at the corner where the Mulberry, Givenchy, DKNY, and other handbags were. She talked about some tips and trends that are out-and-about in the industry for this year. I couldn't really concentrate on the things that she was saying though 'cause my friend (@missusadams) and I were trying to go up and down the escalators to catch a glimpse of Michelle (Stalker-ish mode was on at that moment).

Called her name and she looked at our side and waved :) "so close yet so far?" moment

After that segment, it was the picture taking time with Michelle and I realised that you have to purchase a makeup collection (Michelle Phan's Glamorous Eyes, Chic & Sophisticated Eye Collection, Deep & Glamorous Eye Collection, or Fresh & Luminous Eye Collection) to be able to take a photo with Michelle. I was hesitating to purchase a set, at first, as I saw that the eyeshadow shades in the collections were out of my "usual" and I am not a fan of putting on dramatic eye makeup when I go out. But when I saw that the Fresh & Luminous Eye Collection contains a champagne eyeshadow that would be perfect for me, I just bought it and queued right away! (I kinda regret not getting the Michelle Phan's glam eyes collection or the Chic & Sophisticated Eye Collection though 'cause they have some products that I really wanted to try like the Hypnose Doll Eyes mascara and the Artliner pen. Oh well!)

All in all, I would sum up this experience as a very exciting and heart-warming as I finally met Michelle Phan (and even got to hug her! lol). She was very nice and friendly to everyone even though we know that she was already tired for smiling during the photo sesh.

Not the best photo I got from a photo "booth" but will do!

I'm pretty sure she enjoyed her stay in Australia and loved eating Aussie meat pies:)
