Character Make-up Competition


Body Painting Competition

Level: Professional and Student (2 hours)
Model: Any gender and aged over 16 
Style:  Top to toe – makeup, hair and clothing
Theme:  West End Shows

Taking your influence from one of the many shows running in London’s West End during 2023, your task is to take a well-known stage character and give it your own personal twist.  

You must incorporate prosthetic pieces within your design, which are then to be coloured with either brush, sponge or airbrush.  Remember that your finished look needs to work at a distance as well as close up.

You must plan the overall look to include hair and makeup, hair prep may be done prior to the competition starting (i.e. hair in rollers or grips).

You must do final styling to your model’s hair and do all make up from beginning to end in the time allocated.  Hair styling can include use of wigs, hairpieces, false hair, head dresses, hats, etc. 

Your accompanying Mood Board will storyboard your inspiration and vision and must include a headshot of what your model looks like normally. You’ll be talking through this with the judges to walk them through your creation.  

Style your model to complete your look, with carefully sourced clothing and great looking hair to reflect your creation.
