Masquerade Makeup Workshop
Feb 1, 7-8:30p
We are in the full throws of Carnaval Season! And with so many costumed parties and masquerade balls on the horizon, we thought this would be a good time to add another skill to your makeup bag-o-tricks!
On Thursday, Feb 1st, we present our Masquerade Makeup Workshop! Our resident makeup magician, Hannah Foeh, will be guiding you through the steps to recreate this "makeup mask."
Included in your ticket price will be all the makeup to create this look during the workshop and in the future! Space is limited and tickets are on a pre-sale basis only. If you would like to attend, please give us a call at the shop to reserve your spot! We have different color options available for you to choose from, so please let us know what you choose:
Base colors (choose one):
Metallic colors (choose one):
*Please note: we ask that you bring your own makeup brushes from home. If you need to purchase, we will have some available, but they are not included in the kit we are providing.
Call 512 344 9173 to purchase your ticket, or you can buy directly from our website here: https://coco-coquette.com/products/masquerade-makeup-workshop
Feb 6th, 7-9:30pm
With Valentine's day and Carnaval on the very near horizon, we're thrilled (and maybe even a little titillated) to host Lauren Collier of Pretty Bitch Pasties for a special Ladies Only (and female-identifying) trunk show! Lauren, a local performer and designer, will be selling her decadent couture nipple covers for all of your opulent occasions; topless or not!
There will be a tassel-twirling tutorial lead by a special guest burlesque dancer at 8:30pm. We'll have toupé tape to fix pasties to tight-fitting t-shirts, if you're too modest to expose the ladies in a group setting ;)
Complimentary cocktails to those 21+ will be provided by Dripping Springs Vodka and Gin ♥
10% of sales that evening will be donated to the Breast Cancer Resource Center of Austin: https://bcrc.org/
This is a free event. We hope to see you there!
**Due to icy conditions, we are rescheduling this event to next month's New Moon! New date: February 15th, 7pm.
New Moon Sigil Making Workshop
Feb 15th, 7-8:30p
The New Moon is a potent time for planting the seed of what it is you wish to grow in your own life, or to set a positive intention for your community or the planet at large. I've been working with sigils as a tool for setting these intentions and bringing my dreams to fruition, and this Tuesday, Jan 16th 2018, I'd like to share this practice with you!
We will gather at the shop at 7pm. Please bring a cushion to sit on, a book or other hard surface on which to write and some favorite drawing utensils; I like using pencil and colored markers, but you can use whatever materials you like. We'll provide paper, and will also have extra pencils and markers, so if you don't have your own, there will be plenty to share.
We have a suggested donation of $10 for this workshop, but if this is something you can't afford, please know that you are still invited to join; all are welcome here!
Monthly Makeup Workshop for Transgender Women:
We know makeup can be a mysterious art, especially if you didn't have the social initiation as a teenager. We also understand how what we might feel on the inside doesn't always match up with how we present ourselves outwardly. In an effort to support and celebrate our trans sisters we'll be gathering at the shop for a free hands-on makeup demo and workshop with our pros every first Wednesday of the month 7-9pm, beginning Jan 3, 2018!
This is a safe, judgement free zone for you to come explore the magic of makeup. Whether there's a special technique that you'd like to practice, or if you'd just like to come hang out, we’d love to have you. There is no obligation to purchase anything from us, but if you would like to buy something while you're here, we're offering 10% off during this event.
Please note: this workshop is reserved for transgender people. If you are not trans, but in need of some makeup know-how, we'll be resuming our makeup workshop series in the New Year; stay tuned for new sessions!
