This Saturday -- "Pearls Series" Pretty Pretty! ...& etc!

Okay.  WILL THE RAIN EVER STOP?  Oddly, I just got back from Seattle where it wasn't raining. It would be so nice if it did stop raining before Saturday, because this Saturday is " Pretty Pretty (Look at You!) " at RetroFit !  ...And though the shop is kept more than sufficiently warm by my body heat, I find that sometimes people are less than interested in makeup during a torrent downpour.  Huh.  Go figure. Feast your eye-holes on this little clip from the last Pretty Pretty, where I made up far out performance and video artist Mister Wa.  This video was shot by the lovely Emi Stanley . That's right. It IS gorgeous! This Pretty Pretty will be the final Pearls-Over-Shanghai-style tutorial, because Pearls is ending on April 9th.  However, Pretty Pretty will continue!  And there will be opportunities to do more makeup in all different styles.   More general information on Pretty Pretty can be found here. Learn it! Speaking of the dearly departed Miss Liz Tay
