In which city did you take your first class with Bettina May?
Chicago at Beauty Bar.
What made you decide to take the class? Was it an easy decision, or something you had to step outside your comfort zone to make happen?
I have loved everything from the 50’s since I was a little girl watching “I Love Lucy.” To me that is when American society peaked. The women were so classy and beautiful and hourglass figures were desired. I‘m pretty sure I saw an advertisement on Facebook about Bettina’s class on one of the rockabilly pages I like. I saw that it was coming to Chicago and that’s it, I just had to do it.
Did you have any previous experience with a vintage look, or was this a brand new experience for you?
This was my first time dolling myself up in the vintage look. I have always just admired it on others, so it was an awesome experience.
Did you go on to pursue more photoshoots, or take another class with Bettina?
I have done a few photoshoots for fun since then, but I’ve been focusing on my X-Ray Goddess career.
How do you feel your life has changed since taking this class?
It has changed my style, the look that I have been admiring on others I am able to now do on myself. In the class Bettina has you do your own makeup, she explains the techniques and history to you so you can continue to do them on yourself and incorporate them into your beauty routines.
What would you want to tell other people who want to try something new with their life but aren‘t confident enough to take the plunge?
A class and photoshoot like Bettina’s gives you a fun set of pictures, but also gives you encouragement to realize your potential beauty.
Anything else you want to add?
