No self-respecting 40's obsessive (like myself..) would be able to live in London and not go to The Blitz Party! I just thought I'd add a few pics of my hair and make-up etc to this blog and maybe next time we can do a 'Blitz Party' Cake It On! Special if anyone else has tickets for it and want tips on how to achieve the look.
So the clothes are pretty important and I was so pleased to pick up this Tara Starlet dress at their sample sale last weekend. The lovely Tara Scott, who is a committee member of my W.I, basically is Tara Starlet and her company make reproduction clothing from original vintage patterns...and they do it all ethically - it's well worth checking out their website:
Now the make up was mostly my usual stuff ....
|Red Lippy - no that's not mine on him!|
Anyway, back to make up.
I'll be honest with you, they were lovely colours but the consistency wasn't right for an event like this as they're actually quite sheer and you need gloopy matt lipstick to recreate vintage looks. However, they'll be fantastic summer lipsticks and I'll definitely be wearing these as a 'day' lip, even at work I'd get away with it.
One thing I also got was new lipstick samples and I really wanted to wear one for Blitz Party so I tried these two on:
|"Really Rosy" and "Charged Cherry"|
It was such a great event to go to and I know there's one again in June so if you want any tips on how to do Victory rolls then let me know
Right I'd better go - those socks aren't going to Make-Do and Mend themselves...xox
