Face! Face! Face!
A Guide to Burlesque Makeup for the Stage
With 13 packed years of dancing and touring under her shimmy belt, GiGi La Femme has perfected the art of painting her look for the stage in 60 minutes or less. This demonstration-based workshop will take you through her personal process of going from fresh faced to "Drag Lite".
Topics included:
The Importance of Primers
Dramatic Eye Shadow and Lash Application
Lip/Eye/Brow Enhancements with Liners
Basic Contouring and Baking with Concealer, Foundation and Powders Glitter and Jewel Application
Students will also talk shop about applicators, products, DIY brush care, your questions, and... as a bonus, GiGi will also demonstrate a simple n' easy way to bring your mane from mild to wild with the help of some faux floss and hair flowers. Bring a notebook and pen for jotting down techniques, tips, and tricks.

About GiGi LaFemme:
Conceived in The Big Easy, born in the Heartland, raised in The Big Apple and now residing in Nashville, TN, it's no surprise this show pony has found her home on stages from Anchorage to Key West and everywhere in between. A multi-level threat since 2005, GiGi is neo-classic striptease artist, go–go dancer, pin-up model, chanteuse, host and producer. It's no doubt she really is "The Girl Dreams Are Made Of"!
