Graded Unit II – HND Makeup Artistry

22 Apr

This is what I’ve been working towards for the past 2 years – my how time flies!

The brief for this project is “To prepare and present a project, based on a practical assignment at an organised event.  The finished piece of work must take the form of a live model displaying a full ‘character’ look (added hair, makeup and costume) incorporating advanced techniques.”

Mine’s Superman, impaled on the spike at the top of the Empire State Building.  Ooooh gory!  My advanced makeup technique is bodypainting, but there will be plenty of blood and guts involved too.  You know me.

If you’re interested in seeing my work (plus that of the other 80-ish makeup artistry students from West College Scotland), get yourself along to The Arches on Thursday 14 May from 6-9pm (free entry) for a swatch.

These photos are by the amazing PHOTOSHOP KING Ross Baker, taken at Summerlee (The Museum of Scottish Industrial Life in Coatbridge) – fantastic studio facilities and the most helpful staff, I highly recommend ’em!  My model is Aron, who really is a superhero – not just when I bodypaint him.  Enormous thanks to all involved!
