    I am currently studying Theatrical Make Up at college in my second year and working on my PS for London, Bournemouth and Bolton to further my skills and to later progress in the industry. These courses are extremely competitive! I can't even begin to explain how much my heart aches with how badly I wan to succeed here. I was just wondering if there are any students/graduates from these Universities that could offer some advice on how to make my application and portfolio stand out? I already have quite a few Make Up looks from college which include special effects and body painting, I am also taking extra Life Drawing classes but was wondering what I could be doing in my spare time to boost my application?
