You know, living on a small little island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean usually means that I get left out when it comes to events focused on beauty, etc. It’s not that I’m literally left out, but the fact is that many of those events don’t happen here in the islands. So, when they do – I make sure to attend and soak up as much information as I possibly can. About a week ago I was invited to attend the Maui Muse (which I shared about prior to the event here). I was excited to attend and my little sister came along with me to get a little knowledge for herself. The Maui Muse is the first event held here on Maui and was hosted by the Andaz Wailea Resort.
The Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort was absolutely excited to launch their new series hosted on the property, dubbed Maui Muse. This event features various artists across fashion, photography, music, beauty, wellness and much much more. The Maui Muse series at Andaz Maui will be offering guests the opportunity to learn new crafts from some of the world’s leading experts.
To kick off the launch, the first event was held on Tuesday, May 9th from 10am to 12pm and featured MAC Cosmetics as the Maui Muse guest. This gave guests at the resort as well as locals a chance to learn expert tips and tricks on a natural and easy beauty makeup look that can withstand the humid Hawaii weather. MAC Regional Makeup Artist Rebekah Higa. This event was hosted in a private room with a gorgeous view of the ocean. Rebekah performed a live demonstration that provided a plethora of techniques, suggested products and more to create a show stopping but “perfect for Hawaii” look.
I am a huge believer in continued learning, no matter how much you already know – there’s always room for improvement. Attending this event allowed me to get a personal makeup lesson without sacrificing a comfortable location or all the details. I think it’s also very important that when learning to apply makeup – it’s geared towards the weather and location the makeup will be worn. Many don’t realize that Hawaii weather makes makeup practically melt and great techniques and little tips and trips make a huge difference in application as well as longevity.
As an attendee, I received a little treat bag with face charts and a few samples of the products that were used in creating the makeup look – MAC Strobe Cream, MAC Lightful C Tinted Cream SPF 30 with Radiance Booster, MAC False Lashes Extreme Black, and samples of the MAC Shadescents and Lipsticks.
It’s always exciting and fun for me to attend these types of events because I’m reminded of the little details I tend to miss on a daily basis. Makeup is an artform and it’s fun to watch others get creative while learning a trick or two that I may not have remembered or never learned. I also get quite ecstatic when I get to learn about new products. Rebekah Higa (MAC Regional Training Makeup Artist) was so fun to watch and my sister and I surely learned a lot while attending.I’m not quite sure when the next Maui Muse event will be, but I’ll be sure to share it here should I get the information to do so. I definitely suggest checking it out and take advantage of this service that the resort offers. Besides, where else can you go and sit with a view like this one while learning a specific craft?

Thank you Andaz Maui and Maui Muse for including me to take part in this event. I had a blast and look forward to the next.
