My Pinup Make Up Lesson with Raquel Reed


A couple of weeks ago I went to a Dr. Sketchy session featuring pin up model and burlesque performer Raquel Reed. When I found out that she was a make up artist at a MAC counter near where I lived I knew I wanted to have her give me a make lesson. I was fortunate to have her do my make up today in a “pin up” style. I love the way she lines her eyes so I asked her to give my eyes a dramatic, lined look. She also used a beautiful red lipstick called “New Temptation”.

Raquel will be posing at Dr. Sketchy tomorrow for the last session at the Bowery Poetry Club. I am really looking forward to seeing her fabulous costumes and will be posting the drawings in the next couple of days.
