FOTD and HOTD- 1940's style

Hello everyone!

 Sorry I've been so rubbish at posting lately, I had my performances of 'Guys and Dolls' last week which were absolutely amazing but took over my life! Now it's all over and everything has calmed down a bit I can finally get back to my blog. It was also my birthday last Saturday so I'm now all old and 20, but this does means I have lots of pretty and exciting birthday pressies to show you, yay! First of all though I thought I'd show you my hair and make up that I had for my part of 'Miss Adelaide'. She is a 1940's New York show girl so I was in hair and make up for about an hour and a half every night before the show to get my look right.  

The 1940's pin up look consisted of dark smoky eyes, pucker red lips, teamed with layers of stage foundation and bronzer and dark defined eyebrows. It's not a look I'd go for every day, but it looked great on stage and I felt very glamorous! I absolutely loved the 1940's hair style too, it was created by curling my hair into ringlets with  hair straighteners, then back combing the front two sections and rolling them up and fixing them with lots of curby grips. I had lots of compliments about my hair so I'm definitely going to try and find a way of recreating a more wearable less time consuming version of this style. 

You can see below how the style works with longer hair on my beautiful fellow leading lady Emily...

I'm planning on doing a tutorial soon on how to create wearable 1940's inspired hair and make up, as well as showing you some of my costumes and how to add a bit of 1940's glamour into your modern wardrobe, so stay tuned for that!

I hope your all having a lovely start to your December!
Love Meg
