Its been a busy couple of months for The Sweet Painted Lady and I thought it would be great to share some of the events I have been attending.

In September I was invited to do hair and makeup at the grand opening of 19 Black Modern Pinup Boutique . 19 Black  has recently opened up on Hamilton Grey Street and is a welcoming go to for the local pinup ladies! Run by Judy, it stocks plenty of pinup goodies to treat yourself from head to toe!

Judy invited Miss Pinup NZ 2015 Bettie Rage and I to the day and it was great to see so many of the pinup scene including Glory Days Magazine and the Classics Museum along to show their support!




This gorgeous lady Tracey, had never worn makeup or had her hair down, so I gave her a “Pinup Makeover” and  she brought a complete outfit. The look on her face when she looked in the mirror really made my day. I’m very fortunate to meet lots of lovely ladies ( and Men ) in my job.
