JADE MARIE X THE GYPSY SHRINE GET GLIT MASTERCLASS


Getting ready to glitter state side, we jetted off to LA to host our exclusive festival makeup masterclass with the Queen of beauty, Jade Marie (@jadeywadey180) at Sherman Oaks Bloomingdale's.

Working on the gorgeouuuus Hanna Beth (@barbiebeth) Jade showcased her best picks from Bloomingdale's beauty range, focusing on lips, eyes and highlight. 

Our head Gypsy Shrine artist, Patricia, then swooped in to complete the look using some of our favourite festival products. 

Creating the ultimate festival make up look, Patricia used our Iridescent Aura Face Jewel, the All in One Body Jewel and then finished it off with a sprinkling of our Iridescent Diamond Glitter.  Hanna Beth looked totally fabulous and festival ready!

Keeping those sparkle vibes big and bright, our amazing artists were on hand at our glitter stations offering makeover services throughout the afternoon.

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A GYPSY SHRINE ARTIST - LOTTIE

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A GYPSY SHRINE ARTIST - LOTTIE

Our current girl crush: Miss Lottie Geliot. If you haven't already stalked her on Instagram, please do everyone a favour and click here. Right, you now understand why she's the latest Gypsy Shrine artist to feature in THE DAY IN THE LIFE OF A GYPSY SHRINE ARTIST. 

Not only does her amazing talent in glittering people over make us green with envy but her style is absolute GOALS. We find out who Lottie's style inspiration is, what she'd be doing if she wasn't a Gypsy Shrine artist and which member of the Spice Girls she'd love to give a glitter makeover too.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT BEING A GYPSY SHRINE MAKE UP ARTIST? 

 THE GIRLS! We get to work with the most gorgeous bunch of individuals. I’ve made so many new friends since working with the Gypsy Shrine - everyone is super talented, motivated and always a lot of fun. Secondly its definitely the travelling! I adore seeing new places and the Shrine has taken me to so many amazing locations - for example NEW YORK CITY ?!?!!!

Screen Shot 2018-02-27 at 12.06.55 PM.png

WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR INSPIRATION FOR DIFFERENT GLITTER LOOKS FROM?

DRAG QUEENS - I am obsessed . They are incredible artists and transform there faces into pieces of art & I love that. 

Screen Shot 2018-02-27 at 12.08.27 PM.png

DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE IN THREE WORDS.

1 word … Bi-Polar

My style changes so often and definitely with my mood / environment - I’m forever stuck between being super colourful or grungy and black. I also love vintage pieces- especially from the 70's era. 

Screen Shot 2018-02-27 at 12.09.00 PM.png

IF YOU WEREN’T A GYPSY SHRINE ARTIST, WHAT ELSE WOULD YOU DO?

Alongside being a glitter pixie with The Gypsy Shrine, I am a production designer. (Set design) My roles vary from being the art department assistant to the head of department depending on the scale of production. Film making has been my passion since I can remember. 

 

Screen Shot 2018-02-27 at 12.08.46 PM.png

ON A SCALE FROM 1-10, (10 BEING THE HIGHEST), HOW ADDICTED TO GLITTER ARE YOU?

Now that the new bio range is out I'm gunna have to go with 20/10 . - ya'll gunna see me rolling in it.

UNICORNS OR MERMAIDS?

MERMAIDS - no contest.

WHAT ONE SONG IS ALWAYS ON YOUR NIGHT OUT PLAYLIST?

'I look fuckin' cool' by Adore Delano - pure sass and they make me laugh.

IF YOU COULD GLITTER UP ANY MEMBER OF THE SPICE GIRLS WHO WOULD IT BE AND WHAT LOOK WOULD YOU CREATE ON THEM?

BABY SPICE!!! I would love to give her a cotton candy fantasy

look using the eclipse glitter range and a mixture of jewels. 

LOVE LOTTIE AS MUCH AS WE DO?

Easy Tiger X The Gypsy Shrine

The most anticipated glitter collab of 2018 has finally launched and has officially exploded sparkle across this year's festival game! Our very own girl boss and real-life cosmic princess, Tigerlilly and her amazing fashion brand co-owned by her boyfriend Basil, has collaborated with us glitter gals to create an out of this world jewel collection.  This collab felt super natural as we're constantly inspired by Tiger and her love for all things sparkly, especially when it comes to festival season. 

We travelled across the Sahara Desert in order to find ultra-cool locations to debut the Easy Tiger X The Gypsy Shrine collection. This cosmic jewel range is all about helping you discover your inner festival fairy fantasies and will assure you'll be shining brighter than any star.

WHO ARE SOME PEOPLE THAT HAVE INSPIRED YOU THROUGHOUT YOUR CAREER IN MAKEUP?

I have always been a huge fan of the Gypsy Shrine since coming across their glitter looks on Instagram. The artists featured on the page really inspired me to give glittering a go! Since getting into it I've come across so many amazing artists. I love @SAMANTHAHELENMUA for her amazing SFX talent. @PMON6 and @THRILLSOFTOMORROW for their creativity alongside @LUCYHARTMAKEUPARTIST and @RHIABARTONMUA for their glam. 

 

Screen Shot 2018-02-27 at 10.10.27 AM.png

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE WAY TO WEAR THE GYPSY SHRINE PRODUCTS?

I love a classic head jewel with glitter around the eyes it's such a simple but effective look to achieve. Also, you can't go wrong with the iridescent all in one body jewel on the chest with a bit of sparkle coming off it. My fave glitter to use is SILVER  ECLIPSE and IRIDESCENT DIAMOND.

 

FESTIVALS OR HALLOWEEN?

ALWAYS FESTIVALS. I am addicted.

 

WHAT IS SOMETHING PEOPLE MIGHT NOT EXPECT ABOUT BEING A GYPSY SHRINE ARTIST?

You get to meet so many other amazing artists killing it! I have learnt so many techniques and have been completely inspired by the other girls. Everyone is rooting for each other to be the best they can be.  If you love a look, you tell them you love that look! It makes you feel so much more empowered by what you are doing.   

 

Screen Shot 2018-02-27 at 10.09.45 AM.png

WHAT IS THE WEIRDEST YET WONDERFUL GLITTER LOOK YOU’VE EVER CREATED?

Halloween was definitely weird and wonderful! The look that sticks out the most is the girl who asked to be a mermaid and wanted me to apply blue dye to her hair! THANK GOD it worked and she looked AWESOME! 

 

 

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR MOST MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE AS A GYPSY SHRINE ARTIST?

This is tough! Each event has been memorable in different ways. Probably Halloween at Topshop, Oxford Street as it was crazy busy! Also The Gypsy Shrine Christmas party. That was such a good laugh. 

 

 

Screen Shot 2018-02-27 at 10.08.08 AM.png

WHAT IS YOUR ULTIMATE GIRL BOSS QUOTE YOU LIVE BY?

FAKE IT TILL YOU MAKE IT! Also WELL BEHAVED WOMEN DONT MAKE HISTORY.

giphy.gifgbg.gif

CAITLYN JENNER

“If you want to call me names, make jokes, doubt my intentions, go ahead, because the reality is, I can take it, but for the thousands of kids out there coming to terms with being true to who they are, they shouldn’t have to take it.”

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A GYPSY SHRINE ARTIST - FREYA

Because you gems loved getting the latest lowdown from Gypsy Shrine Artist Chess, (read our previous blog post if you feel like you've missed out on the glitter goss), we are letting you into the sparkle circle to feed you more Gypsy Shrine secrets. You're welcome.

Meet Freya, our blonde bombshell Gypsy Shrine artist, with the ability to transform anyone into the ultimate glitter babe of dreams! We wanted to test Freya and ask her some FOR REAL life or death questions that we couldn't even answer. 

Screen Shot 2018-02-20 at 12.52.48 PM.png

WHICH WOULD YOU RATHER, GIVE UP FESTIVALS OR GIVE UP HOLIDAYS?

Holidays DERRR!! Nothing compares to a crowd full of colour, love, passion for music and of course glitter. Where else in the world can your inner rainbow and wicked dance moves be acceptable? 

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE TYPE OF GLITTER LOOK TO CREATE ON A CUSTOMER?

Has to be the famous glitter boobs. There's nothing like empowering women to celebrate their bodies and seeing the confidence it gives people.  

Screen Shot 2018-02-20 at 12.49.42 PM.png

ARE YOU MORE A FASHION QUEEN OR BEAUTY BASED BABE?

THIS IS HARD!!! Can I say both? I can't go anywhere without my flared pants as there is something amazing about finding one-off vintage items, so I'd have to say fashion queen. 

WHATS BEEN YOUR BIGGEST HIGHLIGHT SO FAR AS A GYPSY SHRINE ARTIST?

To choose one is SO HARD! However, I'd say my first ever time working for the Gypsy shrine. It may not have been the biggest event I've done to date but working Kendall calling festival with the ultimate glitter QUEENS has to be up there. What an experience it was. Safe to say I made memories and friends for life that weekend! #festivalfamilygoals 

Screen Shot 2018-02-20 at 12.54.09 PM.png

COACHELLA OR GLASTONBURY?

Glastonbury will ALWAYS have my heart! I have been going ever since I was 13 years old and every year it just gets better and better. 

IF YOU COULD GLITTER UP THE CAST ON ANY REALITY TV SHOW, WHICH SHOW WOULD IT BE AND WHY?

The Kardashians, purely for their amazing bums. Can you imagine those giant peaches covered in gems and glitter? YASSSS! Kris Jenner also knows how to throw a good party, who wouldn't want to get invited to one of those.

DESCRIBE YOUR EXPERIENCE AS A GYPSY SHRINE MAKEUP ARTIST IN ONE WORD

GLIT-TASTIC!!!

THE GYPSY SHRINE BLOGGER OTM X CHARLOTTE HOLE

THE GYPSY SHRINE BLOGGER OTM X CHARLOTTE HOLE

Blogger of the Month

CHARLOTTE HOLE

The Gypsy Shrine introduces you to our fabulous new feature,  Blogger of the Month! With February being the month of love, we wanted a blogger whose style we were madly in love with! We wanted a blogger whose style we wanted to be our Valentine. This February, our chosen blogging BABE is Charlotte Hole. Charlotte gives us major fashion inspiration, (and envy), especially in the Summer months, with her effortless festival attire and quirky Boho style. Covering content from fashion and lifestyle to travelling around the world, we have her ultimate blogger gossip and fashion-forward tips which we thought you guys would love to know. 

IMG_9514.jpg

Q. How did you start your blogging journey?

I started my blogging journey 5 years ago when I was a retail assistant at Urban Outfitters. I started shooting their new in clothing for their Facebook page each week, then I thought to myself "Why don't I just start my own blog?!". Nothing used to excite me more than creating outfit posts for my own little space on the internet, where I could inspire those who were also interested in thrifty finds and cheap high street buys. I really want to start my blog up again properly this year! It's too easy to forget why you started in the first place.

Screen Shot 2018-02-13 at 9.44.32 AM.png

Q. What’s your current favourite fashion or beauty trend?

Bold colours! I'm obsessed with wearing colours of the rainbow right now. I'm trying to add more colour into my wardrobe instead of getting too comfortable wearing black in these colder months. 

Q. Are you a festival babe or an Ibiza party girl?

Festival girl all the way! Though, I do love that Ibizan sunshine. I'm dying to check out a few new festivals abroad this summer.

Q. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?

CUBA! I've been craving to visit here for a while now and check out Havana and the coastal areas. Some of the travel shots I've seen have blown me away. Since the country is so new to tourism, I feel this would be the best time to get there and check it out. I need to download a Spanish app first though!

Q. What other bloggers inspire you?

Megan Ellaby will always be my number one. Megan's outfit shots are so effortless, fresh and fun! I absolutely adore her style, and she's just as incredible in person as she is online too.

Screen Shot 2018-02-13 at 9.49.58 AM.png

Q. Heels or Flats?

I've got into flats too much recently so I've become a bit too lazy with my heels. I always love a good boot heel though, I'm only 5ft3 so I definitely feel more confident with that extra height!

Q. You’re a total boss babe.. how do you define success?

Everybody has their own idea of success, for me personally I base my success on my happiness. Success to me isn't about having the money or other materialistic things in life, as long as I'm happy each day continuing to work towards something I enjoy then I'm succeeding.

6 Signs You're Addicted to Glitter

6 Signs You're Addicted to Glitter

Are you waking up with last nights glitter on your face? Doing the walk of shame plastered in jewels and gems? We're diagnosing you with a case of TGS glitteritis. Unfortunately, we don't have a lifetime cure for all you glitter patients out there but we can diagnose you through some of the most common symptoms. Before you leave your bed and risk infecting the world with sparkle and shine, (not that we're complaining), read our 6 signs you're addicted to glitter and prepare yourself for having glitteritis...

 

1. You Eat Glitter for breakfast

Instead of finding toast crumbs in your bed are you finding specs of glitter instead? This is one of the earliest signs that you're addicted to glitter. The phrase 'eat glitter for breakfast' is more of an ambition for you because if you could, you actually would. Let's face it though, pics of glittery food is so much cuter than pics of ordinary food.  

 

2. Bathe in Glitter

Is your version of getting clean, covering yourself with extra glitter? If you've always dreamed of bathing in a tub full of glitter and lush glitter bath bombs just don't cut it then maybe you've become glitter obsessed. Congratulations you've made it, you're a glitter bubble bombshell!

 

3. Everything You Touch Turns to Glitter

If you've left a trail of glitter behind you post getting ready for a party, not only is your hoover going to be a sparkly explosion when you empty it, but you've gone glitter mad. Don't be concerned though, our life motto is 'add abit of outfit to that glitter!'

 

4. Glitter Party Girl

Who needs a DJ deck, neon lights or a disco ball in the club when you're there? If you uploaded a pic on the gram from last nights outfit pic and the caption was the twinkle emoji than I think we can both be honest and say you have glitteritis. We are all for glitter on top of glitter for a night out look but let us all pray that we don't see glitter in the toilet after that 5th Jager Bomb your bestie made you down. 

 

5. We Need No Underwear in Here

Are you the type of girl to sling off your bra halfway through walking through the door of your house? Do you often wear tight dresses where you get VPL if you have underwear on? The chances are if you nodded to one of those questions then you've already rocked TGS glitter boobs or glitter booty. You might as well ditch underwear for life! Glitter is the way forward when you have gliteritis.

6. You're Beautiful Like Diamonds in The Sky

Just remember, if you have just finished reading this and have diagnosed yourself as having an addiction to glitter, The Gypsy Shrine Girls are here for you, it's hereditary for us. So in the words of Queen RiRi, 'You're beautiful like diamonds in the sky', however, we always aim to sparkle way more than diamonds do. GLITTER IS A GIRLS BEST FRIEND!

Meet our Gorgeous Gypsy Shrine Artist Chess

Meet mega babe Chess, one of our most talented artists here at The Gypsy Shrine. If you want the ultimate glitter makeover then Chess is your girl! We wanted the low down on her glitzy glam lifestyle from Gypsy Shrining the CBB housemates to studying a degree. We wanted the latest goss on glitter and to give all the aspiring makeup artists out there an insight into what's it like working for the sparkliest, funkiest and coolest brand. THE GYPSY SHRINE!!!!!

unnamed 4.jpg

Can you give us a quick insight into a day in the life of a Gypsy Shrine artist at work? 

I guess it really depends on the job! One of the best things about working for the Gypsy Shrine is the variation of jobs we do! You’ll always know in advance whether it’s a festival, event or shoot. For events usually, we will arrive an hour before it begins to get set up, glitter ourselves (or each other), before spending the evening glittering clients to their request and depending on the brief. No matter what we work on its always so much fun and our customers are always the best! 

unnamed 5.jpg

Which celebrity would you give the ultimate Gypsy Shrine makeover to? 

The queen…..BEYONCE.

What's the best job we've ever sent you on?

Ooo I would say either going to Athens or Celebrity Big Brother, that was such a cool experience, it was so fun to glitter the celebs and have a taster of what it would be like to live inside the house.

What do you do when you're not glittering people up with The Gypsy Shrine?

I freelance as a makeup artist, I mainly work with musicians but I’ve worked on films, TV, Fashion and everything in between! I’ve just started a degree in Anthropology at Goldsmiths University, I love learning about people, cultures and history it's so interesting, I’m a big nerd! I also paint and create my own collage art on @cashbranduhcute   

unnamed.jpg

Would you rather rock a Glitter Booty or Glitter Boobs for the rest of your life? 

Boobs! no more bras haha!

Are you a girly pink babe or a 'does this come in black' kind of girl? 

Oh definitely ‘does this come in black’! Working with some of the other girls has definitely pushed me to try things out of my comfort zone though. I love Patricia and Lottie’s style they always look amazing. 

unnamed 2.jpg

If you could only wear one Gypsy Shrine product for all of this year's festivals which would it be and why? 

I love the iridescent candy kiss, it goes with everything! Even black!!

Do you have any girl boss quotes that you live by? 

Always admire the beauty of others without questioning your own. (I thought that was cute!)

Screen Shot 2018-01-30 at 2.25.19 PM.png

What tips and advice do you have for aspiring Gypsy Shrine artists? 

Practice different looks on your friends until you’re super confident and don’t be afraid to channel your own style into your work, try something new and fun, and keep an eye on your timings, if you’re working at a festival you’ve got to be speedy and still make the customers look amazing! Always be up for everything and every opportunity because you never know where a small job could lead.

The only glitter option for a glam girly girl. After we saw this pretty in pink picture, we could only wish we could pull off pastel pink hair as well as our girl Emily Owen does. Instead of reaching for pink hair dye, we think we might play it safe in 2018 and reach for more glitter and jewels instead...

The Queen of Playlists

Comment

The Queen of Playlists

Think club classics, pop princesses and ultimate girl empowered anthems. We have you covered with the perfect party playlist too pre-drink too before NYE with your girl gang. So do not stress and get your jager bombs at the ready and prepare yourself for these absaloute bangers!

kesha-woman-screenshot-billboard-1548.jpg

"I don't need a man"

Queen Ke$ha

Ke$ha – Woman

Top lyric:

            “I’m a motherfucking woman baby alright, I don’t need a man to be holding me too tight”

This lyric says it all. Ke$ha has come back from one of the most prolific sexual assault cases of all time to release a Number 1 Grammy-nominated album and we respect her so much for that and this song for its bold message.

 

"So I tell myself, I do"

Mega Babe Dua Lipa

Dua Lipa – New Rules

Top Lyric:

            “But my love, he doesn’t love me so I tell myself, I do, I do, I do”

As the breakout artist of 2017, and the #1 listened to female on Spotify (beating even Rihanna and Taylor Swift!) Dua Lipa became the first female to have a UK Number one with our song of the summer ‘New Rules’ since Adele in 2015. This song is all about getting over that breakup in your life and loving yourself. 

spice-girls-1997-billboard-1548.jpg

"Friendship never ends"

Girl Squad Goals Spice Girls

Spice Girls – Wannabe

Top lyric:

            “If you wanna be my lover, you gotta get with my friends, make it last forever, friendship never ends”

One of the most famous girl power songs of all time tells your lover that your girls are number 1, make sure he knows that friendship never ends.

little-mix-power-music-video.jpg

"I Got the Power"

BFF Goals Little Mix 

Little Mix ft. Stormzy – Power

Top lyric:

            “You’re the man, but I got, I got the, I got the power”

From the biggest girl group of all time to the new girl group dominating the world, girl power is officially BACK. They’ve even got the Man-of-the-moment Stormzy to tell the world “You can be a woman and a boss at the same time”, he faced some controversy from fans over this feature but was quick to tell them “Coz I rate Little Mix. More than I rate some rappers tbh”. Not that we need a man to tell us, but just to solidify

BEYONCE81-5533.jpg

"Get back to business"

Queen B

Beyonce – Run The World (Girls)

Top Lyric:

            “Boy I know you love it, How we’re smart enough to make these millions, Strong enough to bear the children, then get back to business”

We could’ve picked the most obvious lyric in this song, as we know who run this world, but this lyric shows just how much we do. We can make millions, bear children and then get straight back to business. Don’t underestimate us, because you will be disappointed.

demi-lovato-confident-album-photoshoot_1.jpg

"What's wrong with being confident"

Diva Demi

Demi Lovato – Confident

Top Lyric:

            “What’s wrong being, what’s wrong with being confident?”

Quite simply; what is wrong with being confident? Take advice from Demi and be yourself this New Year’s Eve.

o-WHITNEY-HOUSTON-facebook.jpg

"I'm every woman"

Miss Houston

Whitney Houston – I’m Every Woman

Top Lyric:

            “I’m every woman, it’s all in me, anything you want done baby, I’ll do it naturally”

One of the original female empowerment songs from the original diva Whitney Houston here, with the chorus simply stating that anything you want done, we can do it naturally. This is one that will definitely get women of all ages up and dancing this New Year’s!

haileesteinfeld-mostgirls.jpg

"Feel like a damn queen"

Little Miss Steinfeld

Hailee Steinfeld – Most Girls

Top Lyric:

            “You know some days you feel so good in your own skin, but it’s okay if you wanna change the body that you came in, ‘cause you look greatest when you feel like a damn queen”

Hailee is known for her female empowerment songs but ‘Most Girls’ is our favourite and always makes us feel like a queen. Look no further for a song that tells you to be yourself and how to flaunt it!

5a5b0e7c-d0bd-4acb-b1eb-162a82fe0957.jpg

"Your Ass better show me some respect"

Girl Bosses Fifth Harmony

Fifth Harmony – Bo$$

Top Lyric:

           "Working for the money cause that’s what my mam taught me, so your ass better show me some respect”

Much like Destiny’s Child, Fifth Harmony are here providing lessons on how to demand the respect you deserve. Getting inspiration from queens like Michelle Obama and Oprah, this song will get you feeling like the true Boss you are.

destiny-child-brits-2001-1392309980-view-0.jpg

"What you think about me"

Girl Gang Destiny's Child

Destiny’s Child – Independent Woman pt. 1

Top Lyric:

            “Question: Tell me what you think about me, I buy my own diamonds and I buy my own rings, Only ring your celly when I’m feeling lonely, When it’s all over please get up and leave”

Girl Power lesson 101 here. This song, like us, celebrates “All the women, who independent” and this will be the one for the noughties girl in all of us. Don’t forget to tell that guy that you’re only calling him for your benefit - when it’s over, he needs to leave.

Other Bangers:

Camila Cabello – Havana

Cyndi Lauper – Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Daya – Sit Still Look Pretty

Hailee Steinfeld – Love Myself

Fifth Harmony – That’s My Girl

GYPSYSHRINE-HENDO29818 1.jpg

Here at The Gypsy Shrine, we may look like a bunch of fierce gals drenched in glitter… but we’re so much more than that! We strive to inspire, support and elevate other women whether that be in our industry or not.

We know that beauty is only skin deep and whilst we love to make others look and feel their best, glitziest and COOLEST at festivals and events; we’re also proud to lift up the women around us and show them off for the GIRL BOSSES they are!

We bring to you our latest campaign, ‘Girls Support Girls’. Over the next few months, we will be supporting some of the best charities, organisations and all round GIRL BOSSES that we could find! We’d like to use our awesome gang of girls (yes, that’s YOU) to make a bit of a difference in lives of women less fortunate than ourselves. We hope you love the organisations we’ve chosen as much as we do!

So first, let us present to you a charity very close to our hearts… Smartworks!

Smart Works was set up to help vulnerable women get back into the workplace by offering interview clothing and coaching for interviews. 

When you find a charity that lives by the motto “Get the clothes, get the confidence, get the job”, you know you’re onto a winner!

GYPSYSHRINE-HENDO29608.jpg

What Smart works does:

  • Offers a 2 hour session with a stylist and highly skilled interview coach

  • Helps women to get interview ready

  • Builds interview confidence for women who are vulnerable and
    long term unemployed

  • Each woman receives a complimentary interview outfit from highly respectable fashion brands

  • When a woman secures a job she can come back for a second styling appointment to get a whole new work wardrobe

How we’re going to support Smart works...

We’ve created an incredible product bundle for our Girls Support Girls campaign - where 10% of every sale will be donated to Smart Works!

We also have an epic competition running on social media where you can win Gypsy Shrine goodies by becoming a part of our Girls Support Girls GANG <3 Check it out here…

So help us support the girls around us by either donating through our donation page at the checkout, buying one of our bundles or spreading the word of this amazing charity and the BABES of this world.

NEW YEAR GLAM | What to Wear For Party Season

NEW YEAR GLAM | What to Wear For Party Season

With the party season fast approaching, The Gypsy Shrine will always have your back. In order to keep you on top of the glam game, we've teamed up with Pretty Little Thing, to make sure we have all the right glitzy goods. We promise that you’ll literally be shimmering your way onto the dance floor the New Years Eve. Whether you have a funky fetish for all things glitter or just simply, seeking a subtle way to make your sassy self-sparkle, us girls have got to look out for each other. That’s why we’ve narrowed down the top four party looks because we demand that you dazzle the night away. So go get glam!  …The only thing you have to do now is to make sure you have four glitzy NYE events to attend.

TGS_New_Year

Look 1:
Sassy Sequin Sparkle

Our first look encompasses all things sequin and sass!

This look will transform you into a walking Sequin Wonderland. This glitzy makeup is ideal for a subtle twist on glitter and jewels. Whether you're a Gypsy Shrine Newby or simply looking to make your outfit do the talking, using jewels as an additional accessory is a wearable statement for this New Years. In order to let your clothing shine, you need to pick a piece that has the WOW factor. This PLT black lace and silver sequined mini dress is the definition of what you want 2018 to be: sparkly, bright and memorable. So make sure you're stepping into the New Years wearing this winning Jewels and dress combo! 

IMG_8992.JPG

In This Look:

The Gypsy Shrine Glitz:

Jewels - All in one body Jewel & Irridesent Candy Kiss

Cosmetic Glitter - Ice Queen & Irridescent Diamond 

PLT clothing:

Silver Sequin Lace Trim Bodycon Dress

IMG_8994.JPG

Look 2:
Glitz 80's Disco

This is all about shining bright like a diamond with an 80's twist! 

Queen glitz meets 80's disco babe, this second look is one of our faves! If you couldn't tell we are LOVING silvers and metallics for this New Years. If you don't have the confidence to rock full on glitter boobs, luckily for you, this season is all about shoulders and collarbones over cleavage. Deep V necklines, like this cute, PLT, mirrored, crop top, are perfect to show off a decked out, Gypsy Shrine, glittered and jewelled chest. For a 'drown me in diamonds' effect, drench the glitter over your shoulders to literally look a million bucks! We think this technique would look super funky using our chunky gold glitter too. 

GypsyShrineNewYear

In This Look:

The Gypsy Shrine Glitz:

Jewels - All in One Body Jewel, Unicorn Crown & Irridesent Candy Kiss

Cosmetic Glitters - Ice Queen & Irridescent Diamond

Pretty Little Thing Products used:

Look 3: 
Do Risky Right

Dare to bare all this festive season!

This is the last chance to risk it in 2017!! This third look is an example of how you don't need to buy both parts of a co-oord to achieve the desired effect. We layered sparkle on sparkle by pairing these sassy, sequined trousers with the risky yet well-loved, boob jewels. This look 100% will make a statement and is perfect if you're a little bit extra like us! We chose to carry on the silver, iridescent colour theme but created an ombre effect by incorporating the Snow Queen Chest Piece.  How crazy cool would it be if you switched the look up by using the Poison Ivy Body Jewel? Do it. Go into 2018 with a glam bang... leaving a trail of glitter behind you.

Look 4:
Smart Sparkle 

 

Full suit attire with a bit of extra glam! 

4. Smart Sparkle

When the dress code is 'smart casual' but you turn up smart SPARKLE. The one time of the year you can go all out in is on New Year's Eve so make sure you go all out with a BANG. This final look is where you can take basic items and glitz them up through jewels and glitter X1000! The trick is to use glitters which include the same colours as the ones in your outfit. This cute mustard suit matches perfectly with the Gold Chunky Glitter and Black Night Face Jewels

Cosmetic Glitters - Gold Chunky, Irredescent Diamond, Ice Queen Glitter, Rainbow Pink & Black Diamond

Jewels - Black Night Face Jewels, Midnight Aura, Boob Jewels

MEET THE GIRL GANG

Sophie Tea

Mega babe, independent artist and travelling beauty Sophie Tea is a force to be reckoned with! She is taking over the world one painting at a time and recently had her very own 90's art show 'Game Girl'. Read about Sophie's inspiration and what makes her one of our fave humans on the planet... 

IMG_4667.PNG
IMG_4668.PNG

What do you never leave the house without?

Passport – I HONESTLY spend my life losing my drivers license because it holds no real importance to me. My passport does the same job but is ALSO my adventure pass to fun places, so I hang on to it with my dear life. I also spend my time and love being on-the-go; having the flexibility to get on a flight whenever I want is mission critical.

What are your 3 fave Instagram accounts?

Sally Mustang – She is a banging artist who loves getting her boobs out. We are so similar.

Mimi – Once a hard-core fan girl, now she is legit my mate (no biggy). I met this legend on a flight to Australia and you should check her out coz her account is so cooool and she is coming to my studio to paint next month to show me her skills with paint!

The Gypsy Shrine – As my bezzie mate, Jenna (hey hun), is the mastermind behind it all, it gives me great pleasure watching it go from strength to strength. Also the girls I have met along it’s beautiful journey are regularly featured and I love keeping up to date with our amazing team xxxx

Who’s your dream dinner date, dead or alive?

David Bowie. THIS GUY, single handedly launched my art career. The day he died I painted a tribute picture of him and posted it online. From that picture I got 1 commission from friends, then 3 commissions from friends of friends, then 5; now I get commissioned from all across the globe. I’d like to thank him for inspiring me and drill him for all of his tips on making it big.

Give us your best tips for always looking glam at a festival…

Make friends with trades people that have access to the VIP showers. OR just cover your hair, face, boobs and bum in glitter. ONLY THE GYPSY SHRINE GLITTER WORKS.

You’re stranded on a desert island for a month, what 3 things would you take…

Paint brush, paints and canvas, but like obviously if I was really stranded then a phone, a private jet and my boyfriend who can fly it for me lol.

You successfully launched a career as an artist… do you have any advice for any aspiring artists out there?

My advice to aspiring artists is to JUST BLOODY DO IT! If you're a creative and you're driven, you are never going to be fully fulfilled in the 9-5. So rather than wishing your life away, do something about it. It will be rubbish at times, you will be skint, you will question every decision that you make, BUT if you're passionate, put in the hours consistently and believe in your worth, it's yours for the taking. Good luck!!!

IMG_4674.PNG
IMG_4671.PNG

We’re all about girl power! What does girl power mean to you?

NOT COMPARING YOURSELF. This is something that I’m honestly still not great at. There will always be someone prettier than you, smarter than you, better at business than you, more IG followers than you, more dogs, more money, better at taking selfies, someone that doesn’t have a really long second toe like you. GET OVER IT. Concentrate on being the best version of yourself; instead of chasing happiness, it will find you!

What’s your fave place in the world?

This is such a hard one! I’m going to break it down into 3 parts:

Party: New York   Arty: San Francisco   Love Hearty: Sydney
