Period Make-ups

Period makeup from the 1920's and 1940's: experimenting with different hairstyles from this era by using setting lotions, heated curlers and various hair pieces - our teacher Louise helped us to recreate the ultimate batch of hairstyles from the time.

Using very different eye shadow techniques, we were able to create two totally different looks on our models. Bright red lip pencils and lipstick from our pallet brought the makeup together. I wound up looking rather dashing as always, in my wig and costume, and everyone else looked great as well!

We continue with the patience of ... wig knotting. We are all going really well with our mustaches, as they take shape and start looking cool!

Looking forward to more period work from the 50's and 80's. Let’s see what we will be able to achieve next!
