Having a great make-up portfolio is the key!

This week the students scrutinized their fashion shoot photos to decide which ones to display in their portfolios. It’s a huge process deciding on which photos to include, as there are a lot of really good images to choose from. At the end of the course the students will have portfolios they can be really proud of.

The Continuity lesson had the students working alone from start to finish as they broke down a script. It proved very informative, and showed us, the students are on their way to becoming well organized, disciplined make-up artists.

Wig knotting with Penny saw the students finishing their moustaches. They were also shown how to dress and apply them, and they also got the chance to apply a real hair lace front wig. Fantastic job all around. The exercise made the students aware of the time and cost involved in producing wigs and they now appreciate the expertise and work of a good wig maker.

The students also finished off their sculptures to a very high standard. They spent the day in the workshop prepping their sculpts and moulding them, and are now ready for the fabrication of their foam latex prosthetics.
