Creating mayhem with make up

TWO students from the region have been creating mayhem with make up, literally.

Make up artistry graduates Camille Astrid, from Annan – pictured above; and Sarah Jane McKenzie, from Dumfries, showcased their colourful creations at the end of year show for the West College Scotland in Glasgow.
The evening extravaganza was attended by industry professionals, press and friends and family and saw the audience transported to land of fantasy where spectacular visuals were brought to life with mythical creatures, monsters and fairy-tale characters.
Camille Astrid, created the Party Monster character.
The 24-year-old said: “It’s been very good to try different techniques. Very stressful but worth it. I’m looking forward to getting out into industry and my college course will give me the confidence and skills I need to do that.”
Zelda was the name of Sarah Jane’s creation.
The 23-year-old said: “It’s been really good but equally very stressful. I’m saving up to do a specialist course in TV and theatre.
“It’s been a great course and I’m going to miss studying here.”

Their course leader Karen McIlvenna said: “Events like these give our students the chance to showcase their eclectic range of skills by transforming models using a mix of fashion led and special effects cosmetics.
“Each of the students worked extremely hard on the run up to the event creating and perfecting their own personal looks and display areas.
“Yet again the event was a huge success; the standard of work produced by each of the students was incredible. They truly wowed the audience.”
