I have been waiting and waiting and yes I have waited for some time more for there to be a make up event in Manchester.
A place where artists could come together, showcase their work. For businesses I knew could have opportunity to reach their community, advise educate and sell there products as well as network.
So I waited some more…………………….
Then I questioned myself. What was I waiting for?
So when I met at a networking event the staff at The Bridgewater Hall https://www.bridgewater-hall.co.uk/and told them of the need for an event that inspired and showcased Make Up artists of all types I couldn’t resist.
I booked it and then began to fill it, with people I knew loved to share, educate and are passionate about make up and this amazing city.
With two competitions to run alongside the event 1: Drag Inspired “Get Your Drag On!” and the 2: Body Art piece aptly name “It’s NOT so Grim Up NORTH !!”
The Judges involved are : Melanie Doyle owner of #MelVicAcademy http://melvicmakeup.com/based in Warrington who offers make up artistry courses on levels, Maria Malone-Guerbaa http://www.mariamaloneguerbaa.com/an artist who’s face painting incorporates fine art, illusion and beautiful application and the simply stunning Vivienne Lynsey https://twitter.com/vivienne_lynseydrag queen songstress with a passion for make up .
