The Last Tuesday Society.....






I popped into the shop the other day to catch the end of an exhibition and discovered that there is also a permanent museum of curiosities....


I WAS IN HEAVEN......







The actual exhibition I went to see included the amazing work of Tessa Farmer, whom I loved for years and had never seen...






Taken from the website -

“Tessa's miniscule sculptures reinvigorate a belief in fairies: not the sweet Tinkerbell image in popular conscience, but a biological, entomological, macabre species translating pastoral fable into nightmarish lore. Constructed from bits of organic material, such as roots, leaves, and dead insects, each of Tessa ’s figures stand barely 1 cm tall, their painstakingly intricate detail visible only through a magnifying glass. Hovering with rarefied, jewel-like beauty, Tessa ’s tiny spectacles resound with a theurgist exotica: their specimen forms borrow from Victorian occultism to evolve as something alien and futuristic. Playing out apocalyptic narratives of a microscopic underworld, Tessa ’s manikin wonders rule with baneful fervour: harnessing mayflies, battling honey bees, attacking spindly spiders. Presented as wee preternatural discoveries, Tessa ’s sculptures conjure a superstitious premise, dismantling the mythos of fantasia with evidence of something much more gothic, sinister, and bewitching.”

Quick Tips for Lasting Eye Shadow......



1. Don't drag too much foundation or concealer over the eye lid when apply these to the face.

2. Use an eye primer such as MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre £13 or Laura Mercier Eye Basics in Wheat £15 - These will help even out the eye lids and leave a matt finish.

3. For extra staying powder you can now dust a powder eye shadow over the lid, use a matt finish for this as you can then take it right up to the brow. Brule by MAC is a good one.

4. You may also want to use a waterproof mascara, people with slightly oily eye lids often experience transferring from the lashes onto the lids and under eye area.

5. Always remove your make up properly, this will ensure that there is never any residue left on the eye lids.
