Wez Makeup Artist

<p paraeid="{0fd146e8-4a02-4bc4-942a-61f0217f7234}{189}" paraid="793730016">Wez is a talented makeup artist and esteemed alumnus of Weston College. Graduating from his studies in Hair, Makeup &amp; SFX for TV and Film in 2020, Wez has since achieved an outstanding career in the industry, making waves with his creativity and skills. Most notably, he recently appeared on season 5 of the hit TV show "<a href="https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episodes/p071fs3c/glow-up-britains-next-m… Up</a>," where makeup professionals compete for the prestigious title of ‘Britain's Next Make-Up Star’. We recently caught up with Wez to discuss his journey, experiences, and advice for aspiring makeup artists.&nbsp;</p>

<p paraeid="{0fd146e8-4a02-4bc4-942a-61f0217f7234}{247}" paraid="773236579">Reflecting on his experience on "Glow Up," Wez describes it as one of the most amazing experiences of his life. Competing with incredibly talented individuals from all over the UK pushed his creativity to new heights. While many people expected glam makeup from him, Wez seized the opportunity to showcase his versatility and explore different creative aspects. “Working under pressure was a constant challenge” Wez told us, “both in terms of the competition itself and the need to remain professional and positively represent myself to industry experts.”&nbsp;</p>

<p paraeid="{287b72e9-00d2-42d6-969e-db5f45f6060e}{36}" paraid="1657984421">Wez went on to tell us "my time at Weston College definitely helped prepare me for what it’s like to work in this very competitive industry. My course and teachers taught me how to be professional when working on a client or a model. This knowledge allowed me to understand what I needed to have in my kit as a freelance MUA and how to keep it sanitised, organised and clean. It taught me about the anatomy of the face, colour theory, skin types, tones and textures, as well as how to apply prosthetics to a professional level. Not forgetting the most important thing of them all, time management. All of these skills translated heavily into the competition as these are the simple expectations of what it is to be a good makeup artist.”&nbsp;&nbsp;</p>

Learners outside Unique Hair

<p>The wonderful Level 1 Hairdressing learners were welcomed by Emma, the salon owner of <a href="https://www.uniquewsm.com/">Unique Hair</a>, for work experience in an industry standard salon. Unique Hair is an independently run hair salon, local to the college, currently underway to becoming a <a href="https://www.weston.ac.uk/career-excellence-hubs">Career Excellence Hub</a> ambassador. This results in the college and the salon working very closely together to ensure the content in the course is of upmost importance to the learners, and even results in work experience opportunities which otherwise would not be offered to L1 learners!</p><p>Emma had six Level 1 learners in total spread over three Mondays, where she opened the salon especially for work experience days. Emma sourced her own clients for the learners to work on, undergoing treatments such as meeting and greeting clients, shampooing, conditioning and applying treatments, as well as blow-drying, curling and setting clients’ hair. This gave the students the chance to use industry-standard equipment, and experience first-hand, what a day working in the salon would be like.</p><p>While Level 1 learners would not usually gain the opportunity to have work experience, Emma was so keen to help out and allow the students to develop employability skills to increase success in their futures in the industry. The students commented, “It was such a great opportunity, and really helpful experience for what working day to day in a salon would be like. Emma was great at explaining everything, and really kind when explaining everything, including the new techniques. We’d absolutely love to go back!”</p><p>The learners’ tutor, Kelly, told us, “It has been amazing to see the development of their skills since this experience!”</p><p>Rachel Harrison, the Workplace Coordinator for Hair, Beauty and Hospitality commented: “The learners absolutely loved their time at the salon, and having the chance to try out new products; the opportunity was invaluable for the learners. Here at Weston College, we focus on finding the learner’s career aspirations first, then assist in how they can reach this. Having a whole day in an industry-standard salon is one of the most beneficial ways to help in reaching their dream jobs; I am so grateful to Emma for her kindness and hospitality towards the learners, and being their mentor for the whole day! I hope we are able to provide this work experience to Level 1 learners in the future!”</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><a href="https://www.weston.ac.uk/what-can-i-study/courses-16-18-year-olds/beaut… out more about our Hair and Beauty courses, here!</a></p>
