NEW: 3 new workshops around Australia before the years out…
I LOOOOOVVVEEE the 1930’s Looks as much as I LOVE the 1940’s but most of my workshops to date I have grouped the 40’s and 50’s together as that has been the majority of interest. This time though I really wanted to group together the 30’s and the 40’s and have put together some of my “Go To” favourite looks using techniques that are achievable at home.. There will be two ICONIC looks that I want to teach you. You can either pick a workshop or do both and double the looks you learn.
Morning WS: Workshop the 1930’s Look with me. I will show you a simple yet striking look 1930’s smoky eye makeup look as in picture above as some easy go to hair styles to suit that era and more importantly to suits some fabulous hats.. (Bring False Eyelashes and any hats/accessories to suit this era that you have and let’s play!)
Afternoon WS: Workshop the 1940’s Look with me. I will show you a simple yet striking look 1940’s Glamour makeup look as in picture above as some easy go to hair styles to suit that era including victory rolls, Barrel rolls and more importantly to suit some fabulous hats..
NEW: An Awesome new initiative started up by a dear Gal Pal I wanted to share with you ..
SKETCH MARKS – Sketch Marks is a life drawing institution with a body positive message. By that, we mean we are celebrating the beauty in the diversity of the human form through the age-old traditions of art.
