Student stories

Kirsty French

I worked as a self-employed beautician before coming to college and have always been interested in make-up and beauty therapy.  This course has helped to expand my creativity as I had never worked with special effects before. I’ve learnt about so many new techniques such as life casting of faces. Making casts out of plaster and latex has been a particular revelation.    As a group we get involved with various college projects as part of our assessment.  For example, we provided the make-up and  effects for musical theatre students performing Sleeping Beauty in the college theatre.  I have loved everything about this course and have learnt so much from prosthetics to new make-up trends.
