.On Silent Sundays I like to share some photos of different aspects of my life.
Today I wanted to share a few images of my makeup work. When I was in my late 20s I did a Theatrical Makeup Diploma which was a big departure from my 'normal' career - I have always been obsessed with makeup. I continued to combine the two careers in varied ways. You can read about my makeup obsession in one of my very first posts. It really has been an obsession since my childhood and those early days of colouring in.
My poor daughter was the guinea pig for many different looks while I was studying. She had black eyes, open wounds, makeup of every era, wigs, beards, aging makeup and so on. I particularly love the blood and gore - false wounds, limbs, aging etc. I also discovered a particular love for sculpting.
My only regret is that I have never mastered how to paint Angeline Jolie's face on to mine or anyone else's either. Ah well, makeup can transform a person but it can't perform miracles!
Truth is, I personally do not like to wear too much makeup myself I just like to put it on others!
Enjoy your Sunday everyone.
And yes, Des will be back from time to time when he is up to posting. He told me that he has a few posts in his head that he is working on now. Thanks for the big welcome you gave him to what I think is now 'OUR blog'. The smile hasn't left his face!
