London College Of Beauty Therapy: Make-Up Student of the Year 2011

This year London College of Beauty Therapy (LCBT) launched its first ever make-up competition to find its Make-Up Student of the Year 2011. The lucky winner was awarded the title at the annual LCBT Student Awards, which took place on 10th June. Not only that, but the winner also received a MAC Cosmetics Goodie Bag and the opportunity to showcase their talents to a wider audience.

This year’s theme for the competition was make-up through the ages. Entrants had to complete two make-up looks.  The categories were:
1.  The students favourite make-up style
2.  Historical make-up from Ancient Egypt, Ancient Rome, the 18th Century or one of the decades from the 1920’s – 1990’s

All of the entrants were invited to a MAC make-up master class in order to prepare for the second round of the competition, where 6 candidates were short listed.

The lucky 6 finalists then battled it out by completing one of their chosen make-up looks and using hair styling techniques, wigs, accessories and costumes to finish the look.  Students also had to complete a 250 word essay about the make-up from their chosen era, with images to show the inspiration for their creations.

3 of the entries are shown below:

Chalene Scott, Events and Enrichment Coordinator (and former industry Make-up Artist) said, “We were really impressed by all 6 students work. They each submitted photos of their chosen make-up looks and thoroughly deserve to go through to the next round of the competition at the MAC Master Class”.

Representatives from MAC Cosmetics chose the overall Make-up Student of the Year and presented the award.  Congratulations to Ethine McCory who was chosen as the winner!
