Students are made-up for Halloween

Students were covered in blood, cuts, bruises and flesh wounds last week at West Nottinghamshire College – all in the name of professional make-up techniques for Halloween!

  • Some looks were not for the faint-hearted
  • The Level 2 Certificate in Hair and Media Make-up class
  • Mood boards helped the group to plan their looks
  • Creepy clowns were a popular make-up look to create
  • Clever shading and contouring was used
  • There was a lot of attention to details
  • Three-dimensional gory special effects were created
  • Students were barely recognisable in their make-up
  • Students worked professionally on each other's make-u[
  • They used the skills they've been taught in class to perfect the Halloween looks

The Level 2 Certificate in Hair and Media Make-up class have spent the last few weeks preparing ideas and creating mood boards for some gruesome and intricate Halloween make-up looks.

Learners created looks from zombies to mummies and horror clowns using the specialist techniques taught on the course, which can lead to careers in creative make-up services in media, theatre and fashion and photographic settings.

Tutor Claire Guy said: “The group has worked really hard in preparing themselves and been quite excited about putting all these fantastic looks together after getting inspiration and ideas from their mood boards.

“We’ve used some Halloween-themed photographic backgrounds to really bring out the colours and features for their portfolio photographs. They’ve been incredibly creative and professional when working on each other’s make-up and have put in lots of effort.”
