I'm that weird chick that does scenes on her eyes with makeup! I'm a make-up artist! I do detailed scenes on my eyes, lips and full face. I started back in October of 2010 when I sat down and just decided to try to do a small design on my lips. I found out I could do it, so I continued! Have fun looking through my gallery of stuff!

I love to inspire others with my colorful, bold and not always so wearable looks. I love to think outside the box and to be creative.

I love feedback, especially when girls tell me they've learned so much about makeup and that they have become more confident and comfortable in their own skin. There's nothing better than that.

Gorton Studio was the first specialist prosthetics school in Europe, and has now led the way in teaching the subject for 10 years.

Screen prosthetics is a practical discipline in a fast moving industry. To succeed in it, you need to master the techniques required by today’s employers, learn how the industry works and know how your role fits into it. To teach these essential elements we bring the industry into the classroom, and take the classroom into the industry.

We take pride in giving genuine value for money, de-mystifying a subject that’s sometimes misrepresented in the education arena, and equipping our students to hit the professional ground running as soon as they graduate.

Mouse – A Taxidermy Workshop Manual

Mouse - A Taxidermy Workshop Manual

A complete guide to creating your own naturalist or anthropomorphic taxidermy mouse.

If you've ever fancied enlivening your mantelpiece with dancing, singing, pipe-smoking or motorbike-riding mice, then this book is for you. Taxidermy has been accepted, both as a craft and an art, for centuries, and is once again making a place for itself in the homes of thousands of enthusiasts. All it takes to learn to stuff your own animals is a little basic knowledge and a creative imagination.

Margot Magpie, who teaches the perennially sold-out taxidermy course at The Last Tuesday Society in London, takes you through the step-by-step process of mouse taxidermy: from ethically sourcing your rodents, to preservation, stuffing, and positioning. By the end, you'll have a happy little mouse, a quirky talking point for your living room and a new experience to tell your friends about.

Seventy easy to follow steps that teach you to skin, prep, preserve, mount and position a mouse in under four hours.

A fully illustrated guide. Each step is accompanied by a close up photograph of the author at work.
