Five hair and media make-up students had the chance to showcase their artistic skills at an exclusive preview event of the Skills Show in London.
Held at the Music Room in Mayfair, the event aimed to give journalists and sponsors a taste of what's to come at the main Skills Show event at the NEC Birmingham in November. As well as showcasing body art skills they'd learnt in the classroom on one another, the enthusiastic students also encouraged visitors to have a go at media make-up themselves, giving journalists hints and tips on brush strokes, colour blending and how to steady the hand.
