This movie looks so good! I am so bummed I won’t make it cause it’s the same night as our open house this Wednesday night, but you can go! Please let me know by tomorrow night (Tues) if you want to go and if you would like to bring a guest and I’ll put you on the guest list. If you send me an 18th century makeup picture of yourself or a model that you did the makeup on, you will get “vintage” swag! Here is the email from the promoter:
I am currently working with Fox Searchlight on their new release, THE FAVOURITE. The film is a wickedly fun and stylish film with Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz, and Olivia Coleman in Queen Mary’s palace in early 18th century England. We will be holding an advanced screening this Wednesday, November 5th at 7:30PM at Regal Bridgeport. I know this is a short turn around, but we would love to invite the staff, students and faculty of the Art of Makeup School. All I need are the first and last names of those attending and the number of guests they would like to bring.
Also, if you are interested we would love to partner with you on the promotion of the film. Create a makeup look inspired by the film and it’s time period of 18th century England court. The makeup in the film is important to this film as it highlights the style and creativity expressed through makeup and clothing of the time period. Let me know if this is something the students would be interested in. For the students that would like to do the makeup look, I can send them great promotional items. We have silver compact mirrors in velvet pouches, both long and short sleeve shirts with great quotes form the film on them (“It’s fun to be queen sometimes” ‘I am on my side always” “I am capable of much unpleasantness” and more), playing cards and posters.
