Hair and Media Make-Up Level 2 Diploma
I am a more creative person than an academic one. I have been interested in make-up since I was young and I thought this course looked interesting. I want to work in the media, such as film, so it made sense to do Hair and Media Make-up. I like the make-up best because it is what I want to do as a job.
I live in Solihull but I didn’t want to study there. I liked the idea of being in Birmingham city centre at UCB. I came along on an open day and it seemed like a nice environment.
We started with the basics, like day make-up, evening make-up and special occasion make-up. We went on to do bridal work, including an Asian bride, which is very dramatic. We have also done fantasy make-up, which involves feathers and colours and a vibrant look, the kind of stuff you would see in theatres.
In the second year, you choose between hair and make-up and I will definitely do make-up. I want to go on to uni and then work in film and TV shows. It seems like a great career.
