Ladies, the most of us already know and appreciate the wonders of makeup and for those of you that don’t yet dabble in the art of makeup, why not learn from the best – our makeup artists.
We’re all beautiful both with and without makeup but we all have insecurities and makeup can be the perfect way to forget about those insecurities and give you that extra bit of confidence. Most of us do the same makeup everyday: a bit of coverage, mascara, maybe filling out your eyebrows and maybe when you go out for a nice dinner or party you take in that extra step further and add some eye shadow or lipstick. We all know though that using makeup your unfamiliar with can be difficult to navigate. Instead of enviously wishing you could do the extravagant wonderful makeup some women have on Instagram, let our makeup artists bring your dreams to reality.
And if a hens party is the perfect day to feel like the best most exciting version of yourself then I don’t know what is.
Take a look at the difference makeup can make.
Your transformed face will be a great topic of discussion for parties where friends of the hen come from interstate or even overseas and may not know each other. We’ve noticed this is often the case and being transformed into a glamorous queen is the perfect way to get everyone feeling confident and get comfortable with each other by discussing something which most of us know and love – makeup.
We love it when you come up with a vision of what you would like your makeup, so here are some examples you could use for inspiration, get creative.
Having an artist create a ‘new identity’ for everyone brings playfulness and relaxes the nerves. And it’s such a treat to let someone create a new, different you!
You could try something arty:
You could try even more and have your face and body painted.
One of our bodypainting artists, Kim tells us: “ I find joy in creating beautiful art in the field of face and body painting. My favourite medium is professional stage make-up painted onto skin. I like its spontaneous fleeting quality and limitless possibilities to try out new concepts. The artistic process itself is fun; we discuss style, colours preferred, subject, lighting, props and so on…and customise the design to suit the individual.”
If the hen or any of the guests are pregnant why not celebrate their beautiful baby bump and what they’ve created through accentuating it using body painting.
Maybe you want to create a theme through makeup, for example a masquerade theme. Masks have a fascinating psychological power over us humans. They hide your true identity and give you the opportunity to completely recreate it. People dare to explore under the new persona of a mask. Because the face acts as a primary identification label, disguising it brings freedom.
Our makeup artists also love adding fake eyelashes to finish off your new look. Exaggerating your natural eyelashes by adding false ones accentuates your eyes, doing wonders for the final look as you can see below.
One of my favourite films always has and will be Burlesque. Embrace the Christina Aguilera in you and fit the part of a burlesque dancer by having out makeup artist do your makeup burlesque style before you and your girlfriends learn the art of seduction from one of our burlesque instructors.
Our team enjoy coming up with their own ideas and tailoring your look to what they think would best suit you, but we also love when you come to us with an idea or inspiration. If you have an idea of the kind of style you would like contact us and we’ll help make your vision become a reality. This hens party requested a fantasy/ glitter theme.
