EDITORS NOTE WELCOME BACK TO DUPE... After a very long and dark winter, we are pleased to be back with a shiny new issue of Dupe Magazine. We have been super busy over the past few months. Anna has been working with lots of celebrities including ‘Little Mix’ and she is in the midst of a house refurb. Nathalie has also been busy with a shop refurb and we’ve been having a lot of fun putting together this amazing issue. We are currently working on some top secret projects wihtin Dupe Magazine, which we will be launching before the summer and we are so excited about this. However, we dont want to give the surprises away just yet so you will need to be a little patient... We are also super honoured to announce that we have been shortlisted at the Thurrock Business Awards 2016.... so please make sure you keep your fingers and toes crossed for us. Our social media channels have been blowing up, we are showcasing different artists every day from around the world, so dont forget to use our hashtag #DUPEMAG so we can find you. We will be wandering around at various events over the next coming months, so come and say hello. If you would like to be featured in our next issue, please do not forget to email us at dupemag@ gmail.com. All our social media handles and contact details can be found on the next page. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the amazing support we have had from around the world within the face and body painting industry. Special thanks to Yvonne for proof reading the magazine for us, you are a legend! We hope you enjoy this issue. Much love, Nat & Anna
