no competition

12 Mar

A few weeks ago I went to the AHT UK Trainee competitions at Coatbridge; I entered the ‘team bridal’ event, myself doing the makeup and my classmate Rachael doing the hair.  Our classmate Sophie was our model, and what a good sport she was.

It was a long day with lots of competitors in various events…

…and some truly talented folk about.

Rachael and I were up against I think 19 other teams, and the standard was HIGH – I was happy with my work but also not surprised we didn’t place, against some of the others.

Others in my class placed, in the bodypainting and the vintage makeup category.  Here’s Saoirse who came 3rd in the 1950s makeup category.

This weekend I was supposed to be going to Blackpool to compete in the national competition for colleges (this time doing drag makeup) but I’ve withdrawn this time round… I just have way too much on with college work.  Next time 😉

Until then, flogstars!

nailed it: Illamasqua i’mperfection bird egg nails

Here’s Loz modelling the Speckle nail polish (colour: Scarce) from Illamasqua’s newest collection, I’MPERFECTION.

Nice, innit?

As you can see, Loz is a married woman so to all you hand-fetishists that creep around on here, don’t even think about it.  But wouldn’t you say this makes a classic, yet subtley-different nail look for a bride?

By the way, this is polish applied by me drunk in the pub, with no top or base coat, and it’s been on for 2 days already.  Illamasqua nail polish wears really well and stays shiny, get amongst it!  Review coming soon of the excellent matte top coat I bought at the same time… 😀
