Thou Shalt Endevour to Always Wear Red Lipstick

Today I became a graduate of the Lindy Charm School for Girls. By which I mean I went to a vintage hair and makeup workshop at Bell’s Belles Vintage shop.

Like the AWESOME blogger I am, I forgot my camera. Nice one. So you’ll just have to believe me when I say these photos taken in my bedroom are the result of the tutelage of Miss Chrissy and Miss Kim. [Edit, this PHOTO (singular). I have lost the knack of a good self portrait :P]

We learnt about setting hair, doing makeup, foundation garments, and some of the philosophy behind why the ladies of yesteryear wore their hair and makeup this way, etc.

I had a lovely time, though perhaps didn’t learn quite as much as I’d hoped – I already pincurl my hair, and the makeup we did is what I do every day! Regardless, it was a lovely atmosphere, and the misses were delightful!

Speaking of vintage hair, I’ve been thinking for a while of doing a pincurl tutorial here… there are plenty of them if you search online, but I think they’re a great way of curling hair even if you’re going a modern look. Thoughts?
