Our make-up students have been using their specialist make-up artistry skills to share an important message about sustainability and environmental issues through body art.

The Lev­el 3 Spe­cial­ist Media Make-up stu­dents were set a project called ele­men­tal’ and tasked with fol­low­ing a brief to high­light cur­rent envi­ron­men­tal con­cerns such as pol­lu­tion, defor­esta­tion and cli­mate change through the use of spe­cial effects make-up techniques.

Emi­ly Sil­ver, 19, from Top Val­ley was part of the project. She recent­ly com­plet­ed the course and now hopes to gain more expe­ri­ence with­in the make-up indus­try, before pur­su­ing her dream career in the film industry. 

The course was an incred­i­ble expe­ri­ence from start to fin­ish and I was able to let my cre­ativ­i­ty bloom into a com­plete­ly new skillset. Dur­ing this project I par­tic­u­lar­ly enjoyed being able to spread an impor­tant mes­sage through my favourite art form, plus I learned to work on a larg­er scale, and it gave me the space to show­case my true talent. 

 — Emi­ly Silver
