Caravan had a great time glamming up the lovely Lily Lane for her performance that evening. Thanks to the amazing makeup from Kryolan Profesional Makeup , Lily looked stunning and her makeup never budged even her red lipstick stayed perfect all night long. Lily’s hair was old Hollywood glam and with the help of Sexy Hair products this style was a breeze to create and capture that style that lasts all night long.

Nails are always fun to create when you have such a great theme to work from. With these Basquiat inspired fingers who could go wrong. These nails were hand painted with Zoya Nail Polish to resemble mini versions of Basquiat paintings

The evening was filled with fun sweets with So Delicious,  Offering an array of delicious dairy-free delights you can feel good about. Belvoir Elderflowers Press Lemonade An exquisitely scented blend of freshly picked elderflowers, fresh lemon juice and sparkling water from the Belvoir springs.
