Carshalton College held their annual Beauty Make Up competition on Thursday 28 February. This year’s theme was Fantasy characters from literature, giving students the chance to develop creative and spectacular looks.
Beauty students from Level 2 Beauty Therapy used models to create looks under assessment conditions from mood boards they had prepared earlier. Mood boards provide an outline of the theme with pictures, drawings, text and materials explained to demonstrate the thought process behind their final creation. The fantastic looks included the Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland and an unusual two-face depiction of Cinderella.
1st place went to Hope Downs for her amazing Water Babies model; 2nd place went to Hina Rehman for Anck Su Namun from The Mummy and 3rd place was to Channelle Palmer for The Mad Hatter.
Louise Johnstone Watts, Beauty tutor said: "This is an amazing opportunity for the students to be creative and showcase their abilities and skills learnt throughout the course. I am so proud of the students who have worked so hard this year to create their characters, many of which have added their own unique flair! I am very grateful to DW Hair and Beauty who have very kindly provided us with most of the prizes that were awarded to the students.”
Our beauty students do a full range of treatments including: manicures, pedicures, facials, eyes treatments, waxing, make-up, false eyelashes, massage and spray tanning. The teaching staff are all dedicated practitioners who continue to work in industry alongside their teaching role, keeping updated of new trends, innovative ideas and practices.
