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.

Full de­tails are on the High School Make- Up Com­pe­ti­tion Townsville page on Face­book.
