Second-year BA (Hons) Make-up for Media and Performance students are challenged with live model project.

The Live Portrait Model project tasks level 5 BA (Hons) Make-up for Media and Performance students to utilise, manipulate and apply the technical make-up, prosthetic and postiche (hairpiece) skills that they have learnt on the course, on a live model. The students focus solely on the face and hair for this project, rather than utilising the whole body, which they explore in other projects.

In this unit students explored design, sculpting and mould-making processes for prosthetics and re-imagined hairlines through re-fronting wigs and making facial postiche.

Some of the many exciting make-up applications can be viewed below.
