'Flicks, Lashes and Lips'

Do any of you Vintage Beauties love the tease and allure of Burlesque?  I certainly do!  Am pleased to hear that as part of the Australian Burlesque Festival, performer Anna Fur Laxis will be hosting two vintage beauty workshops here in Melbourne:  'Flicks, Lashes and Lips' and 'Victory Roll Bootcamp'.  Am very much looking forward to these.  Her glamorous styling secrets are sure to put a wiggle in my walkX

For the love of vintage

What is your favored era for Vintage Makeup Artistry?  My personal favorites are the ultra-feminine stylings of the 1950's, and classic Old-Hollywood Glamour.  Both these era's had iconic 'looks', and are  seasonally replicated on fashions catwalkX

Dropdead, Gorgeous Jungle Girl

I have been fortunate enough to be in a really inspired and creative place in the present, and for that I'm thankful.  Visions of Vintage Inspired Beauty looks abound and currently I am particularly drawn to 1950's B-grade Tropical Tiki and Jungle Girl Exotica.  This afternoon I purchased the Dropdead Couture Blingbone in Babypink (as modelled above by Makeup Artist/Pinup Micheline Pitt) and I look forward to featuring it in an upcoming beauty shoot thematically similar to the photograph below.  Purr!X

Attack of the 60's Inspired Girl-Groups

Just wanted to share the latest video from one of my favorite current bands Clairy Browne and the Bangin' Rackettes.  I just adore the 60's Inspired Hair and Makeup styling in this vampy video.  Big hair, Heavy-Winged Eyeliner and Spray On Bad Girl outfits.  Sizzle.  Wanda Woodward eat your heart out!!X
