Burlesque star, Missy Malone, shares her secrets for eyelash fluttering pinup looks.
I tend to wash my face with cold water and use Vitamin E cream to mosturise.
I wear very little base make up, only conealer and Chanel loose powder. I pencil my eyebrows in every day (Missy trademark). I wear black liquid eyeliner by Rimmel, to create thick 50's eye flicks. I add a modern/rocker twist by wearing black eyeshadow (Mac) dusted under my bottom eyelashes. I am currently wearing YSL mascara that my mum bought me for christmas & it is wonderful. I never go out without my red lippy on I wear Rimmel "Diva Red" in the Day time and MAC "Russan Red" in the evening.
For shows the only change is I wear huge false Eyelashes, from my local joke shop or MAC. And I add a coat of red glitter to my lips for crazy shimmer on stage.
My nails and Toes are always painted Red.
My wonderful hairdresser Neil Barton, maintains my signature "white streak" and raven black locks. Day to day I wear my hair down (my hair is naturally poker straight) with a quiff (about 4" tall). For evenings/events/shows I curl it all with ceramic curling tongs & create "Victory Rolls". I am also a huge fan of flowers (Lilys or Orchids) and wear them to finsh a hair style (match them with your outfit!).
I am a fan of 50's fashion and modern style, so I mix both to create my look. I wear what I like & don't care if it clashes. I love leopard print, capri pants, pencil skirts, Galaxy dresses, wiggle dresses, seamed stockings, bullet bras and cashmere jumpers. I live in heels I own over 100 pairs. I love kitsch plastic jewlery, flashy costume jewlery and real Diamonds equaly!
