Ayrshire College’s Greatest Showcase
HNC and HND students from Ayrshire College’s Make-Up Artistry course held their graded unit exhibition at the Carlton Hotel in Prestwick on Thursday 10 May.
‘The Greatest Showcase’ featured 22 stunning visual displays by the HND students, with a further 28 HNC level make-up artists displaying their portfolios.
Debbie Jennings, HND Make-Up Artistry student from Irvine, said “This is my third and final year at Ayrshire College and every year I have learned new and exciting skills. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at college and can’t quite believe that it’s now coming to an end. This year’s graded unit has been the most stressful yet enjoyable unit as it allows me to be very creative and use the new skills I have learned in special effects and prosthetics.”
HND Make-Up Artistry student Aqidah Muslim from Glasgow said “These two years at Ayrshire College have made me realise this is my passion and my future. I’ve found that it’s challenged my make-up skills and creativity, and also boosted my confidence and self-esteem.”
Kayleigh Allan, HND Make-Up Artistry student from Dalrymple, said “The event has been challenging but exciting as it is the ultimate finale. I feel it has pushed me to take ownership of my own ability and challenged my professionalism. Ayrshire College has been supportive throughout my years here. I feel the time has come to take all I’ve gained and make my own stamp within the industry.”
HND Make-Up Artistry student, Lisa Boyd from Kilwinning, said “I started at college doing hairdressing before coming into Make-Up Artistry. I have pushed myself to embrace the new skills and techniques required. It’s been a challenging but very enjoyable year!”
Elaine McCarthy, the group’s lecturer at Ayrshire College, said “Every student worked so hard to produce outstanding standards and quality of work for their showcase. This event pushes students to the limit on their ability and professionalism, and involves the industry and the outside community.”
