TALENT T O SHINE AT FIRS T BL USH
BUDDING makeup artists get an opportunity to showcase their talents in the first High School Make- Up Competition.
The competition is open to students in grades 8 to 12 in the Townsville and Burdekin regions across three age groups. There are categories for special effects, glam and character, with more than $ 3000 in prizes up for grabs. Competition coordinator and owner of home make- up studio Make Me Up Buttercup Teigan Aitken wanted to encourage students interested in make- up to follow their passion.
“There are a lot of opportunities given to kids in sports, music or art, like drawing, but not much in make- up,” she said.
“I want to try and hone and encourage those skills as well as show them the opportunities out there and what options there are for them to study.”
The competition costs $ 5 to enter and entry forms are available from ILLI Cosmetics on Sturt St or via email at teigan. nixon@ gmail. com
Entrants will submit a photo of their work before finalists take part in a live show where they attend a workshop and perform a live application.
