My Weekly Special - - VINTAGE MAKEOVER -

Moira Gaffney (49) has a very spe­cial oc­ca­sion to look for­ward to this De­cem­ber – her 30th wed­ding an­niver­sary.

“De­cem­ber 7 is our big day – and then on De­cem­ber 16, it’s my hus­band’s 50th birth­day,” ex­plained Moira. “We met on a school trip when we were 15 so to cel­e­brate, we’re go­ing on an­other trip – to Florida. It will be mag­i­cal.”

What bet­ter rea­son for look­ing 1940s fab­u­lous?

Af­ter ap­ply­ing a base of foun­da­tion and pow­der, make-up artist Dawn used eye­brow pow­der to strengthen Moira’s brows be­fore ap­ply­ing liq­uid eye­liner along her up­per eye­lids.

“With a vin­tage look, the liner on the up­per eye should be heav­ier than nor­mal. And lips should stand out.”

To com­ple­ment the green dress Moira had set her heart on wear­ing, Dawn gave her deep bur­gundy lips. “For stay­ing power and def­i­ni­tion, I ap­plied con­cealer over Moira’s lips, then coloured in with a bur­gundy lip liner be­fore adding lip­stick,” Dawn said.

Moira’s film-star red locks were set with pin curls and then, once cool, Kirstie back­combed her hair, rolling two sec­tions into sym­met­ri­cal Vic­tory Rolls.

“I adore my look,” laughed Moira, as she posed in 1940s pin-up style!
