I never thought I would ever get the chance to meet one of my famous pinup idols, so when I heard that Miss Victory Violet had added another class to her Australia tour I was ready and purchased one as soon as they were released. I didn't know what to expect as I have never met anyone famous, but I was honestly blown away. Not only was the event fun, delicious and a great learning experience but Ella AKA Miss Victory Violet was so nice, funny and down to earth.
We started with a tutorial on Classic modern pinup makeup, which covered foundation, eye shadow, blush, eyeliner and lippy. We got to see the tricks and write down the tips from this very talented doll. What was great to know was that we didn't have to use the most expensive products, you can achieve an amazing look with the right technique.
We were then treated to a Vintage hair tutorial. From victory rolls, setting a curl to the brush out, we got to see it all and take photos. I was especially interested in the brush out as I always have trouble with mine and it was great to know that Ella's hair is not always perfect and sometimes hers doesn't work out either. Her kind words and her genuine nature I think made us all feel so comfortable and positive about ourselves.
Did I mention this all took place at Ma'mor Chocolates! An absolutely divine location and delicious too. Indulge was the key word and that we did. From French champagne to gourmet filled pastries it's safe to say that we all left fully satisfied, it was a High Tea like no other.
If she ever graces our country again I will definitely be buying another ticket and hopefully I will get the chance to have her cut and style my hair. Plus Ella loves doing Boomerangs, she actually did them with all of us and had photos with us too!
Something I will remember forever!
