I LOVE vintage shopping. Even more so I love doing it with my partner in crime Heather- owner of Vavoom Pinups www.vavoompinups.com. So when the Randolph Vintage Market invited Vavoom to do a pop up booth at the February market how could we resist?! Sara and I did a Vavoom hair and makeup transformation on a VP client live then Heather shot her in various outfits throughout the day while we all talked to guests and handed out cards. It was a great day to meet fans and future clients and of course get a little shopping in! Check out IG and Facebook for all the photos!

Hi everyone! So you may know that all the makeup and hair here at Pretty Windy City also work with the amazingly talented Vavoom Pinups studio. www.vavoompinups.com. We are very excited to begin showing you some of our beautiful clients from there. Here is Kelsey with her makeup by Julia and hair by Sara Allott. Check out the site and if you book a shoot be sure to request us for your shoot!
So news from headquarters: I love to invite artists over to play with new products, share products, tips, tricks, etc. Learning something every day is the key to artistic growth. So recently Mary and I stumbled upon the website for some mini airbrush machines that we saw in action at this spring's Makeup Show. They are palm sized compressors from Dinair. So we checked it out and they are perfectly sized for all our one gal jobs but also perfect for personal use! Whenever we airbrush anyone they always say that they wish they could do it at home. Well Dinair makes that a possibility. www.airbrushmakeup.com
Our MAIN machines are from the professional line at Temptu. They also make a consumer machine to use on yourself. And frankly theirs is even easier! That one is available at Sephora or www.temptu.com
Kenmore Live Studios has a cool new show called Bridal Wave! Today's show was about wedding photography. Hosted by Christy of Junebug Weddings- she interviewed Bob Davis of Bob and Dawn Davis Photography and Candice Cusic of Candice Cusic Photography. I did the makeup for Christy and Candice before the show!!
This morning I had the pleasure of doing makeup for the beautiful Candice Cusic

resource and inspiration to brides to be!
