I had a very, very busy weekend doing makeup at various hen parties with my colleague, Bebe. We often team up our services to accommodate large groups of people needing makeup. We hauled our kits all over Brighton during the heatwave. We learned that there are quite a few ‘hen houses’ in Brighton which can be rented by large groups of people, such as for hen and stag parties.
We found M.A.C. chromacakes to be particularly useful and long wearing for quick body-painting in the extreme heat which gave the creepy skin tones of our zombie pin-up hens. We also created our own homemade skin prosthetics to achieve the disgusting flesh wounds visible across their faces and necks.
Hillariously, I did not manage to get the fake blood stains off of my hands in time to lead another “normal” hen workshop that afternoon for a vintage ‘Flicks n’ Red Lips’ workshop. I tried to explain that it was only fake blood stains, but who knows if they believed me! If you are interested in an unusual or themed hen party makeup workshop and aren’t put off by the gruesomeness here, please do email me.
