THE BURLESQUE SELFIE PROJECT
Oct was a busy one!
With 19 events in the diary I decided to take advantage of the opportunity and experiment with make up.
Looks ranged from 1930’s pin up starlet for the corporate events to ‘somebodies been eating the crayons’ for the Halloween Scream Park.
I didn’t have the time to spend hours creating flawless make up, and for my outdoor fire performance bookings it really wasn’t necessary. The audience are so far away they can’t really see my face, and soon as you light the fire everyone goes turns into moths and stares at the flame.
Time spent on make up ranged from 90 mins to 20 mins, you can probably tell which is which!
I had wanted to bleach my eyebrows previously, so this year I took the plunge.
It looks cool, though it can age you. I thought I could just dye them back, but it didn't work! haha. So I have let them grow out. It was a good chance to allow them to fully grow back, and I'll get them professionally shaped after 8 weeks, ready for the winter shows.
I’ll admit Oct nearly broke me, halfway through the month my shoulders felt like lumps of broken concrete from spinning fire every day, an ultra sound massage really sorted me out (highly recommend it)
After years of being a classic performer, and Halloween not being as popular as other seasons, it was great to try out lots of looks (some more successful than others) and unleash my inner creepy little demon.
