My co-worker and I both had to go to Denver to go through demo in order to be MAC certified. There will be two trainers there to watch (stalk) and listen to how we present ourselves/MAC to customers. It is nerve wrecking because, according to the artists who had done this before, the process is NOT easy. The rubric is 3 pages long and you have to do everything in 25 mins (peak hour demo, AKA PHD).
This is the look I wore (I was still in my hoodie):
What I used:
--MAC Prep n' Prime skin visage
--Laura Mercier creme smooth foundation in Porcelain Ivory mixed w/ Sunny Ivory
--MAC Studio Sculpt concealer in NW 20 under the eyes
--NYC Sunny Bronzer
--Ben Nye Contour #1
--NYX creme blush in Glow
--MAC MSF in Soft & Gentle
--Wet n' Wild Color Icon Palette in Snow Fairy Plum (I still haven't gotten my MAC Staff card.....)
--MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack
--MAC Opulash mascara
--VS Beauty Rush lipgloss in Tiny Bubbles
After I changed into "MAC Approved" attire:
What if I DON'T PASS?!!!!
Finally ready to leave:
Anyways, sorry for this short post. I'm so nervous my hands are actually shaking. FACK! I really hope they don't ask me to use liquid liner cuz the liner will look like those lines are the heart rate monitor.
Wish me luck guys. I really need it.
Shiz. Neither of us passed. According to the trainer, I sounded too technical. I sounded more like I was talking to a makeup artist as opposed to teaching a regular customer who doesn't know what "blending" means. I had to give them the "MAC experience". I guess that's something I've always overlooked because it sounds so basic to me.
People lied. It was A LOT harder than the way it used to be. Today we were watched by senior trainer, who is the trainer of our regular trainer. She was SOOOOOO tough but I guess this means that it'd mean a lot more when we get certified by her.
I'm bummed, but whatever. Better luck next time. Thanks for all of your comments!! :)
