Student make-up artists awarded at PB North
Make-up students got their chance to shine at Professional Beauty North. The make-up competition, organised in association with make-up brand Art Deco, was open only to students this year but the standard of work was impressively professional across the 30 entrants. There were two categories: 'Bridal make-up' and 'Glamour', for which the theme was a Lady Gaga-influenced evening look. The winners were the same across both categories First: Afshan Islam Second: Layla Victoria Thornton Third: Kim Purewal Overall winner: Afshan Islam 'We were impressed by the standard of skills,' said Art Deco managing director Colin Laphan. 'Afshan in particular shone out. Her bridal look was easily good enough to have charged for.'
