A GIRL SHOULD BE TWO THINGS,


CLASSY AND FABULOUS. COCO CHANEL

I'm Alison McMath, the creator of Kitty Wink Vintage. Along with a team of talented artists, I provide vintage makeup and hairstyling at events, weddings and special occasions. I love creating styles from the past and making them my own. It's all part of the enjoyment of fashion and makeup. I developed my own style over four decades and take inspiration from the things I love, both past and present.

  • MOVIES

    WHAT I LIKE TO WATCH

    You won’t be surprised to find out that I love old movies. They certainly don’t make them like that anymore! My favorite film of all time has to be ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’. I also love ‘Cat on a Hot Tin Roof’, ‘A Street Car Named Desire’ and ‘Some Like it Hot! I love period dramas and romantic films – as long as they aren’t too soppy!

  • ICONS

    PEOPLE I ADMIRE

    I get a lot of inspiration for my styling ideas from the glamorous Hollywood icons of years gone by. My favorite film star growing up was James Dean. I had posters of him all over my bedroom wall. Regarding style icons: Coco Chanel, Cyd Charisse, Kathrine Hepburn, Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich, Ginger Rogers and Wallis Simpson.

  • ERAS

    FAVOURITE STYLES

    For me, the most stylish era was the 1930s. Soft, floaty and sheer fabrics, the ultimate in femininity. Backless evening gowns and beach pyjamas for the more daring. High-waisted, wide-cut trousers and puff sleeves. Finger waves flowing into a bun at the the nape of the neck – you can’t get more elegant than that.

  • STYLING

    WHAT I LIKE DOING

    Every woman deserves to look and feel beautiful inside and out. We bring vintage glamour right to your door by offering everything you need to get your special occasion off to a beautiful start. Based in the north-west, we cater for hen parties, birthdays, weddings, workshops and weekend events.

“A smile is the best makeup any girl can wear!”

Services
Hairstyling and makeup from the 1920s to present day. We not only style the bride but can accommodate the whole bridal party too.

    We love doing hen party makeovers at Kitty Wink Vintage. It’s great fun, especially when you hear the screams of excitement when the guests see their friends for the first time as a vintage version of themselves. We had a brilliant space to work in with plenty of natural light so managed to get some great makeover shots.

    One of my favourites as this lady never wears makeup. I think you will agree she really suits her curls on top hairstyle.

    This look really suits her. It’s so feminine and pretty and makes the most of her beautiful natural wavy hair.

    …. or in our case, about a mile down the road to The Pines Hotel, Chorley. The name of the vintage bridal fair ‘From Here to Eternity’ was very apt indeed for the fair was organized by Christine of Bijou & Vintage.  Christine showcased a selection of her vintage bridal gowns, some of which had never been worn.

    I thought I’d done my last photo shoot of 2013 until I was asked by my friend Rebecca aka Miss Bexsy Boo, if I would be able to help her out. Nyla Rose Gifts & Interiors were searching for a new ‘face’ to model their range of gorgeous retro dresses and she’d won their modelling competition …. brilliant!

    I love a good photo shoot! It gets the creative juices going. It’s hard work but so enjoyable and it’s a proud moment when you see the finished results.

    If you think wearing a vintage wedding dress means you are limited to having vintage-styled hair and makeup – think again! Of course, if vintage styling is what you are looking for, that’s OK too, but why limit yourself? In fact the ‘sky’s the limit’ as far as we’re concerned at Kitty Wink Vintage. (more…)

    Compellingly dark, dangerous femininity is at the glittering core of rising jewellery icon Annelise Michelson’s distinctive pieces. A soft, feminine sensibility with a bewitchingly tough and menacing edge haunts the French fashion darling’s work, making Michelson’s inimitable necklaces, bracelets and ear adornments popular with high-fashion, often left-field trendsetters including  (more…)
