On Monday 25th May United Makeup Artists Expo (UMAE) hosted their first live, in person, Warpaint make up competition in over two years. Taking place in Liverpool, they welcomed a high volume of contestants from a range of colleges.
Emma Rutherford, Warpaint’s Editorial Director, hosted the competition, and gathered a collection of industry experts to judge the looks the students designed and created. Students competed in Bodypainting – themed “all the world’s a stage”, Creative – themed “sacred spaces”, Fashion – themed “geometry”, Character – themed “the Marvel universe” and Bridal – themed “international bride”.
The judges were impressed by the high standard, making it a tough decision to choose the winning looks.
A huge congratulations goes to Preston College learners Faye Smith and Erin Livermore!
