Week 15: Vintage Beauty

I loved this week!

Here's where I'm sitting while I have a latte. I rate the latte 4 out of 10. Not as good as previous orders unfortunately.

On Tuesday we started on the 50s and did a Lady Gaga inspired look from the Telephone video. It was such a cool look that I did it again on myself when I got home.

In the afternoon we did a 50s inspired doll look. We were inspired by pictures of Barbie and other doe eyed toys. I loved the makeup I did on my partner and I also dressed her in one of my gowns. She looked amazing! Unfortunately I only have one picture on my iTouch which doesn't really show the makeup but it gives an impression of the look.

And here's the look she did on me:

On Tuesday we did the 60s and you know what? I think I like the makeup of this era even more than the 50s because they had the strong lines and awesome colours not to mention FAKE EYELASHES!

I ADORED the look I did on my partner, I was so proud of my work. In my opinion I captured the 60s perfectly right down to the houndstooth dress I had my model wear.

I wasn't that excited by the 70s. It didn't give me much leeway to experiment while retaining the period-look elements, ya know? Doing fancy things like cat-flicks and concentrated colour made it 50s & 60s again.

The 70s is a nice look and that's it. The look of the era is definitely defined by the clothes opposed to the makeup.

On Friday we did the 80s and our own version of the Black Swan makeup. It was fun, but by that time I was so tired from the full-on week I didn't get that into it.

Here's the look my partner did on me.

Anyway, that's it for this week. Coming up we are doing advanced natural, elegant and sultry looks. I'll post up again next week. Leave me a message!

Btw Samantha, I found your Tumblr account. I'm not sure how it works so I didn't leave a comment but I did see it!

Here's a picture of my nails from a few weeks ago. Prettiest look EVER!
