On September 18th we celebrated my host mother's birthday. .I bought a birthday cake for her, and I gave her a little gift from Japan. She was so happy. She has a son and three daughters.
A lot of birthday cards were delivered to her house, which is a common practice in the UK. It is a culture not found in Japan. I was very moved by this culture.
I send a gifts for my parents' birthdays but never send a letter or card. There are a lot of gift card shops in the UK. I realized that the UK cherishes birthdays and anniversaries very much.
From the 28th September〜2nd October, I went to Spain for a make up experience.I participated in a hair & make up tournament held in Madrid.I was a bit nervous because I had not practiced or applied make up for a while. However, it was a very good experience. I had never applied make up to the Spaniards.
Some Spaniard have long^bridged noses and distinctive faces. When I actually put a shadow on her face, I was perplexed.
To be honest, I was anxious at first because the preparation period was obscure.However, I could really feel the joy of creating something that it became such a wonderful experience.It gave me confidence knowing that I have the necessary skill.I want to make use of this experience and use it for classes during my time at the makeup school.There were many other booths at the venue. There were also booths that let people practice various skills, such as makeup, body paint, nail, etc. It was all very exciting.
