I first met her when she did a vintage hair and makeup demo for Stoke Newington WI back in the summer. I started to follow her on Twitter and found out about the competition.
She spent four hours teaching me how to do new hair (yay, I finally got the trick of the Gibson tuck — photo is of my attempt the next day) and how to deal with makeup in a way which is easy but not what I do pretty much every day. What was great was that she didn’t try to make me look like someone else — just a more fun version of me.
She also made me tea and awesome vegan chocolate coconut cookies (which I also shared with lovely vegan Ruth).
I highly recommend her skills and services. Although she can do ‘traditional’ makeup and hair, she’s great for us alternative types who want to be glamorous but still goth/punk/rockabilly/retro — still ourselves!
You can find her via her blog or on Twitter: @MissHoneyBare.
