Better Than Botox

.... not that I know from experience, but this beauty treatment was painless, much cheaper than a dose Botulinum Toxin  .... and what's more, I feel like a million dollars! It's all down to the talents of photographer Simon Hunt and his team at Alt Studio, Manchester. I noticed recently that a few of my friends had experienced makeover sessions at his studio.
I have to admit I was curious to see what they could do for me. I wanted to do something completely different to my normal 1940s/50s look. A 1920s theme appealed to me so I went along with some pearl earrings, a fur stole ... and just look what they did!

I am a makeup artist and vintage hairstylist so you may think it odd that I am singing the praises of another, but I like to give credit where credit's due  .... and credit is due big style to Nikki Armstrong who had the insight and  talent to transform me into a silent screen goddess in about thirty minutes flat.
I have no idea how she did it! I tried to make mental notes but due to my age have now forgotten them.
Anyhow, I feel like it was a life-changing experience. My insides are happier than they've been for a while and it's radiating outwards into the Universe .... that's surely a good thing!?
The only down-side is that I am admiring my artistic images more often than I should and not getting other 'stuff' done.
This should be on the national curriculum!  Or at the very least, available on the NHS. Having the opportunity to be immortalised in such an artistic way is an experience every woman should have. Simon certainly knows how to make a girl happy. What a great morale boost! I am more than happy to recommend Alt Studio to anyone who wants the star treatment for a day. Take away beautiful momentos that will last forever .... which of course, is much more than can be said of a dose of Botox.
Thank you so much!
