From College make up to celebrities
Alice Rouillon has been making over TV, music and sports stars as a full-time artist with her distinction Level 3 Hair and Media Make Up.
The newcomer learned from our industry experts during her College course, even shadowing established artists on high-profile jobs with celebrity clients.
College staff supported Alice’s entry into a Pro Beauty Exhibition competition and she won the chance to gain exclusive insights into the industry from make-up leader Armand Beasley on an OK Magazine shoot as first prize.
Armand invited her to assist on many more jobs, which Alice added to her ever-growing list of first-class work experience.
The former Lymm High School pupil said: “It’s not just the range of skills you learn in College, but it’s also health and safety and the other aspects that really make students stand out in terms of professionalism. Plus health and safety has never been as important as it is now, during the Covid pandemic.
“To be able to learn from tutors who are established make-up artists within the industry is amazing. I can’t credit the College enough for how well staff have supported me, by encouraging me through competitions, giving me the opportunity to gain experience and equipping me with the business skills to get jobs in my own right.
“I’d strongly recommend studying Hair and Media Make Up for the way it prepares you to work as a media make up professional.”
Alice is regularly called on to do the make up of members of the Manchester United men’s and women’s teams for commercials and works with high profile clients such as Boohoo and JD Williams on fashion shoots.
