My friend Audrie Reed organised the most fantastic fashion show which took place last week. It was for the Cambridge based charity Village Outreach Society to create fundraising to provide a health and vaccine programme to an indigenous tribe in Tamil Nadu, S. India. These families survive by scavenging anything they can recycle and sell from the city dump.
Anglia Ruskin University 2nd year design students created new fashions from recycled clothing and their outfits were auctioned off. There were also some great exhibits, including dresses made from plastic bags and tea-bags and a map of the world created out of rubbish from different countries. The event was also held in conjunction with Cambridge University Festival of Ideas.
My sisters, my daughter and I did the makeup for the models and we had great fun going a bit wild with over-the-top cat walk makeup, I can’t wait to see the pictures, as soon as get some through I’ll post them on here
Well done to Audrie for organising such a fantastic event.
I've had a brilliant but busy week practicing my new Mary Kay Mineral Makeup & Skin Care parties on my customers and friends. I have a new set up for the parties now and needed to fine tune how I do them, so I've been driving around the county teaching people how to look after their skin, doing makeovers and teaching people how to do their makeup. It's been really good fun! Thank you to everyone who has hosted a party for me and thank you to the guests who have come along for some free pampering :) I even managed to rope in the lovely ladies from Hardwick History Society and Comberton Antiquarian Society!
I hope you have all enjoyed it and have had some fun learning new tricks of the trade and treating yourselves. If you have not yet had a Mary Kay party and you'd like to try one yourself, please do 'Contact Me' and I'll get you booked in. You can also read more infomation about it on my blog further down and on my Mobile Makeup Artist pages :) x
I also managed to fit in doing makeup for the models of the fashion show at the Junction in Cambridge on Monday night - it was fun because it was a range of styles and dates from 1940's through to 1980's makeup, men and women. I have another fashion show to do the makeup for coming soon, so be sure to check out my Diary Highlights!
