I have spoken in the past that I am currently studying for my BTEC in Make-Up Artistry, after 3 assignments I am now working hard on the final assignment. This contains 5 designs briefs - Party, Wedding, Fashion, Photographic and Fantasy. I have spent the previous weekend doing two of the briefs and am currently filling in treatment plans, designs and evaluations, as well as editing photos and writing reports for them. I am still loving the course and cannot wait until I qualify, however time is limited as for the next few weeks I need to get everything finished and handed in for the end January.
I am really excited about the Fantasy element that is themed around musicals - I've chosen Phantom of The Opera because it is my favourite, I've seen it in the West End, got the Film version and really want the Live DVD version. I'm thinking of doing a half face piece, one side the phantom, the other half Christine. My front room is currently covered in photos, make-up and drawings. As it is my final piece I want to put as much as I've learnt into it, as well as making it a show stopper!
This does mean that updates on here will for the next few weeks be fewer than normal, wth the Masterclasses returning next month as these take the most time to research and put together. It also interesting as I learn that I really want to share it you guys, I'm still finding more and more things that I want to write and share about.
The blog also hit 10,000 page views a few days ago, I am still humbled that people read this, I won't say too much now - that'll come on my one year anniversary on 25th. For now, keep safe everyone and I'll see you on the other side.
