No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If he did, he would cease to be an artist.
Makeup and wardrobe we love is the hot topic for today, with the added bonus of us exploring extraordinary hair too. So let's get cracking and discuss these art forms!
The thing we love about art is that it knows no boundaries and is nonjudgmental. It exists to enrich our knowledge and understanding of perception, giving way to individual appreciation and taste. After all, what may be beautiful to one may be ugly to another; it is an exciting concept. One thing we hope we all share is the appreciation of art and its creation of origin.
Some art is permanent and other types are more temporary in nature. As event professionals we are experienced in creating one-off experiences that may last a day or more, but ultimately we know that our guests have to go home at some point. We rely on photography and video to savour those moments for our artistic achievements though and these time capsules remain as a glance back in time, but sometimes we do wish that there would be a physical reminder of the event which lasts.
One canvas that is even more temporary is the body itself, which is continuously changing from one moment to the next. We are all living examples of art that contribute to a greater population of diversity, with the added benefit of our own angels of beauty that exist to pamper, protect and care for our physical wellbeing. Hairdressers, makeup artists and fashion designers are life’s creature comforts that help improve our lives through the application of their own artistic talents. Today we celebrate these wonderfully creative geniuses by displaying some truly original and fiercely creative and cultural expressions. These are the things we love.
Being able to express oneself through makeup is one of life's greatest joys. There are so many creative techniques to explore and tools available that it is impossible not to find inspiration. From theatrical expressions to simple flourishes, here are some of our favourites.
When it comes to wardrobe the choices are endless and we could choose thousands of examples throughout history. Here are some iconic looks that make us smile from eleganza to classic cuts and more bold statements that literally make your eyes pop out of your head.
Of course, being immersive design specialists, The Events Mill incorporates all three disciplines into our work. We have all departments - hair, makeup and wardrobe - within our production departments and our technicians continuously create looks for our team of talented performers. Our production design extends to full prosthetic sculpting and makeup as well as wig creation and costumier design. We work with the very best artists in the industry and we have an award-winning studio based in London but we work worldwide.
If you are considering planning an immersive experience and have a theme idea and need some help in executing your plans then we can help.

“The Events Mill ensured that War Child’s “Winter Wassail” was beautiful, stunning and memorable. Christopher Mills has amazing vision and imagination and brought together so many diverse and disparate elements to create magnificent set pieces and choreograph an overall magical vibe. His attention to detail is second to none – from suggesting the perfect caterer and ensuring they delivered to our insanely high expectations, to finding elegant furniture that set our event apart from other charity fundraisers. Christopher is focused and professional, even in the most incredibly stressful circumstances he was able to keep his cool throughout the build-up and execution of the event. The introductions Christopher made have proved invaluable to War Child. Frankly, the success of our event would not have been possible without Christopher. Like a great composer, he was able to visualise the individual elements before bringing them together in a final orchestration. I have no hesitation in recommending Christopher to anyone and everyone. Thanks to his generous contribution, War Child was able to raise over £300,000 on the night which will enable us to continue our vital work with children in war zones.”
