Theatrical make-up students scare up some competition

SKULDUGGERY was afoot as theatrical make-up students at Stratford College prepared for All Hallows Eve.

Students threw themselves into a series of competitions to showcase their talent as they tried out horror make-up for size.

One winner, Jade Fletcher-Finchett, who impressed tutors with her skull make-up, said: “We were able to escape reality through artistry and Halloween no longer became cancelled.”

Tutor Charlotte Hollingworth explains: “It’s very rewarding to see the students be free, creative and imaginative. We gave them some knowledge and skills around creating the basic forms and details of a skull make-up, which they could incorporate into any design if they wanted to. The competition pushes them to challenge themselves and create unique designs.”

Also bagging the top spots was Alice Knights’ bloody twist on the Queen of Hearts and Natasha Witte’s take on a traditional skull look.
