Five of our talented students took part in competitions at the Beauty UK exhibition this week.

Beauty UK is the largest trade show outside of London and welcomes thousands of beauty professionals from around the country.

The students along with lecturers Leanne and Lucy attended the event to compete in the National Make-up Awards 2019, testing their skills in bridal hair and make-up, high fashion make up, prosthetics and body art.

Leanne said: “The students were up against tough competition, with many other entrants on higher level qualifications. Despite this, they produced some amazing work and achieved great success. This competition is judged by industry professional judges so we are delighted to be recognised as a college that produces national award winners.”
