    I was going to go there but I'm thinking of going sketch house or highline if I get in.
    Yeah I was thinking that.
    What are you gonna put in your portfolio? As I see fashion students have sketchbooks with loads of fashion illustrations but with makeup I feel that we can only show the finish product in a portfolio like photoshoots or mood boards with inspo on them and maybe a facechart here and there. Feel like I need more than a photoshoot portfolio and mood boards.
    I think im going to do a big sketchbook to go along with my photographic portfolio to showcase the ideas behind each photo.. I feel like that may be enough.

    I have done a lot of mood boards to go with them.
    Just dunno what sketches you can do for makeup.

    I've mainly just done notes with colour swatches then added the mood boards and the face charts. It's basically any ideas etc that I used to help create the final looks

    Ah ok! I see what you mean. I do things like that on rough paper but never thought as using them to show how I got to a final look 😂 Just show a photographer or something.

    I just thought it would fill it up and show ideas of how I created the look. It'll be something we do on the course so I thought I'd show it in my portfolio work hahaha

    Yeah we would do. Think I may just dedicate a little book with what ideas I had from looks I've done as I've included some in my mood boards anyway.
    I'm making a proper book with final images in only. Then a folder with mood boards in. A project I worked on in school and then a little idea book! You presenting final images in their own place?

    Yeah that'll be good. I do, I have it's similar to a display book if I can find the name I'll comment it. I'm putting all final images in that book. Then I'm organising everything else in a sketchbook.

    Ahh amazing. You waiting on the mini portfolio now? What would you send in?
    Also any of you guys have Instagram or anything? ☺
    I've applied to Southampton Solent as well, seems that was the only other uni that I could do make-up as a full degree at that wasn't for special effects or performance! I sent off a portfolio to them last week with some of my work I've already done, and selections of art fro old sketch books along with some analysis of my work! Yeah its @beccistokeld, what's yours?? x

    I was going to apply to them but I'm not interested on being on a course that isn't fashion makeup based but does look good.
    If they like what they see will they give you an interview or an offer?
    I've got an interview for Salford on Wednesday, will show them my website and my folder full of mood boards.

    Sorry I've only just seen this! How did the interview at Salford go? I was only really interested in Southampton because I work on the isle of wight a little bit so it's familiar, literally just desperate for a uni that did a degree in makeup!

    Yeah defiantly! As I have sent mine back in December there are things I would love to send in now if I had the chance! But I guess if I'm lucky and I get the interview then it's fine as I can show my recent stuff to them then but hoping what I gave them already is enough for the next step. I'm sure you'll be fine, just be positive ☺but I know the feeling. We all have other things to do so we have tons on our plates atm 😭.

    It went well! Just chatted a little too much but it shows passion I guess so I feel like I'm over worrying. Other than that they said I had flair for high fashion makeup and that I have passion so I'm sure good comments mean something. Fingers crossed they gave me an offer.
    Ah so have you had an interview with them or just waiting for a reply? Good luck though seems like it would be a good place for you with juggling work and uni! ☺

    I just called the college up and got to a receptionist who put me to someone (wasn't sure who) and they weren't there so I had to leave a message.
    Thought if I call I could find out when they will send the invites out but no luck 😞
