​Zombies, scary clowns and skeletons are among some of the weird and wonderful creations crafted by Nottingham College specialist media make-up students in the run up to Halloween.

The budding make-up artists have been practising their special effects skills on the theme of a Halloween ball, based on renowned body painting artist Matteo Arfanotti.

Mum-of-two Hayley Cooper is a qualified hairdresser, and chose this course to add another string to her bow. Hayley used professional products combined with simple paper towels to create a bloody’ 3D effect.

I thought I’d do the make-up course to extend my career, so that I can do events and festival make-up for example. 

I do salon and mobile work, and I can fit the course in as well, but I do like hard work and to keep busy! 

 — Hayley

Bradley Carr was inspired by the movies with his monster joker look. He created a minimalist effect, with bold colours and contouring to add definition.

There are so many different career options, like wedding make-up but also theatre and special effects. So I’ll just enjoy all of it and then pick whatever I want to specialise in. 

The tutors at Nottingham College are nice, it’s a really good environment, and they’re there to help you. 

 — Bradley
