GIVEAWAY TIME!! I’m pleased to announce that I will now be offering one-on-one make-up lessons as a service.

TO CELEBRATE, I WILL BE GIVING AWAY TWO COMPLIMENTARY HOUR AND A HALF MAKE-UP LESSONS (in person only valid in Melbourne, Australia).

The winners can pick whatever they feel like learning in an hour and a half, whether it’s day to night looks, how to select products and brushes or more in depth looks for cosplay, vintage styling or models wanting to brush up on their skills for photo shoots.

Where have I been? Plus dandy andy

….Well, actually, a few job interviews. My computer has been in and out of repair for the last six odd weeks and I’ve had a few jobs which for various reasons I will not be sharing on my blog.

This Sunday (the 21st of July), I will be working with my good friend Ashley on a Film Noir style short film. She will be styling (major wardrobe envy!) and I’ll have the task of creating beautiful 40s style hair and makeup looks on the actors.

Next Saturday (the 27th of July) I shall be shooting with Mark Hillyer and Jessica M to create some interesting art together. Several looks and I’m posting my inspiration board to Pinterest, so take a peek. However, I can safely say that one main look I’m hoping to acheive is inspired (not a blatant copy! I despise plagiarism!) by Andy Warhol’s iconic portraits of Marilyn Monroe, Deborah Harry and countless other people and inanimate objects he screen printed during his time in The Factory.

This is very personal to me. Andy Warhol is one of my idols. He created an artistic space for so many people and revolutionised high art by refusing to conform to it… or to create his own brand of high art. I want to be someone who can turn the ordinary into high art and make the already fantastic into tangible, memorable, iconic pieces of artwork. So hopefully I’ll be able to pay homage in a way that I feel is appropriate.

In any case, I’m still alive and will hopefully be posting more often now that I’m -touch wood- using a computer that works once more.
