Wow, it’s been a while.
We can’t say how much of a delight it is to be back painting you beautiful lot.
Since Covid restrictions lifted and we could get our painty groove on again, we’ve adorned the faces of guests at weddings, Batmitzvahs, team building days, 40th's, 60th's, baby showers, hen dos, family raves and Pride events. Some recent clients have included M&C Saatchi, PETA, Phase Eight and Gok Wan!
A few favourite gigs include a phenomenal 26th birthday party in the grounds of a private mansion, where guests dined under an ancient oak tree along beautifully dressed banquet tables under some of the last of the summer sun. Guests dressed as mythical creatures with the birthday girl rocking a bright orange, PVC, fishtail dress; her makeup lilacs and purples with incredible SFX gills and scales.
We face painted at Gok Wan's birthday party at private members club The Century Club on Shaftesbury Avenue. There were plenty of bright, colourful outfits to inspire our glitter eye designs. Adult face painting never fails to help get people feeling glammed up and in the party mood!
It was wonderful to collaborate with PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) again for their demonstration at London Fashion week this year. We were brought in to body paint TOWIE star and Ann Summers brand ambassador, Chloe Ross, as a snake. Chloe then lay on a plinth outside Somerset House as part of a protest against the use of exotic animal skins by some top fashion brands.
Working alongside the incredible MUA Elvis Schmoulianoff, whose work we have admired for some time, and assisted by Juliet Eve, the whole look took just under 4 hours and was all achieved used brush, sponge and stencils.
And (in what feels like a big throw back to the distant summer now) a special shout out to the ever brilliant Greenman Festival for putting on a consistently excellent show in the valleys of the Breacons. And to all you Greenman'ers - the nicest festie crowd around and you lined up for your festival henna in your hundreds!
Things are still looking a little different for us at Poppy & Perle HQ but we are so very grateful for our amazing team of artists across the South East and South West who consistently produce gorgeous body art and are consistently dreamy to work alongside. And a huge thank you to all our clients, old and new. We have had such fun embellishing your gorgeous events.
While we take a quick autumnal breather, Halloween is fast approaching and enquiries are flying in. We're digging out our fake blood, ready for you ghosts and ghouls!
