News: Hair and Make-up stu­dents cre­ate zom­bie looks

Lev­el 2 Hair and Media Make-up stu­dents have been cre­at­ing some spooky effects in the run up to Halloween! 

Their Lec­tur­er set them a themed brief as part of the body art mod­ule for the Lev­el 2 Hair and Media Make-up course.

The chal­lenge was to research and design either a clas­sic zom­bie, or a zom­bie look inspired by pop art. Then the stu­dents made the looks go from 2D draw­ings to 3D make-up looks on their vol­un­teer models. 

We spoke to two of the group, to see what it was like to prac­tise these looks. 

Louise's colourful look

Louise is 16 and she cre­at­ed a green and pink pop art zom­bie look.

I used neon con­trast­ing colours for my look, and I used gems to add a 3D effect. It’s gone quite smoothly! 

I can’t wait to get the next briefs and learn tech­niques each term to devel­op my skills. 

 — Louise

William's classic zombie look

Sev­en­teen-year-old William would like to go into the film and TV industry.

For this project he cre­at­ed a clas­sic zom­bie look. It fea­tures a very pale face, dark­ened eyes and the illu­sion of cuts across it.

The good thing about the course at Not­ting­ham Col­lege is that you aren’t just told what to do. You can actu­al­ly choose what you want to do. So I chose a clas­sic zom­bie look. 

To get my 3D effects, I used shad­ing, fake blood and tea! 

 — William

On the Lev­el 2 Hair and Media Make-up course, stu­dents learn a range of skills to pre­pare them to get start­ed as pro­fes­sion­al make-up artists. 

Well done to all the students!
