An exciting new collaboration between Vintage Hair Lounge and Airbase High Definition Airbrush Makeup is launching at this year's Goodwood Revival (13-15 September). The leading airbrush makeup company, led by CEO Lloyd Naake, has embraced the Southampton based leaders in vintage hair and makeup styling and industry training to sponsor the Vintage Hair Lounge salon "Over the Road" at the world's leading classic car motor racing and vintage event which will see 149,000 visitors descend on the Chichester motor racing circuit in vintage costume this September.

The roots of the partnership originate from the ever increasing demand for flawless makeup looks that recapture the iconic faces of the golden era of the Hollywood megastars, in a new high definition age. Airbase has already built an impressive reputation supplying to the television industry (ITV, Sky) and thousands of makeup artists whose work can be seen throughout the photographic and media industries.

The airbrush system delivers long lasting water and heat resistant makeup that is easy to wear and beautiful to photograph, as this recent 1950s inspired image, featuring model Miss Deadly Red, shows.

"Airbrush makeup has become known for very modern looks in the industry," explains Vintage Hair Lounge Creative Director, Sharon Holloway, "but that is one fantastic use of this great product. We are setting the standard for a new wave of uses of Airbase to recreate authentic vintage makeups that pay their respects to the pioneers of film makeup in the 1940s and 1950s. Different products in those days, but the looks were flawless, and with new techniques and products we are creating a vintage glamour that continues to resonate in the 21st century."
