Video: Classic 1940s Makeup Tutorial.

24 February, 2013

Hello all. So today’s video is a little later than usual as I was working away until 1am last night and still didn’t have time to finish editing! I got up early this morning and finished editing, exported and uploaded it *wipes brow*. As always, I feel I should mention I’m not a trained makeup artist and these are just a bit of fun – I might not know all the industry tips but well, we’re all learning here!

Of course, feel free to ask questions and make requests. Happy Sunday x

    Proper chuckling to myself about the stamp pen furore. I remember stamping everyone who came to my house on the back of the hand with the cat one when I was about 8 and making them check in their coats. Most kids have ambitions of being a vet or an astronaut but it seems I was hell bent on a career as a coat attendant. Lovely makeup look too x Becky
