BEAUTY Therapy students from Riverside College were treated to a day trip to Urban Decay in Manchester to hone their make-up skills and learn valuable new ones.

They were provided the opportunity to learn the tricks of the trade by gaining expert tips and advice from industry experts with a makeup masterclass from the global cosmetics company.

The enthusiastic students at the Widnes college used the trip as a unique opportunity to acquire new skills from industry experts, gain information on current makeup trends and test new techniques using industry standard products.

This kind of experience is extremely beneficial to the students who can incorporate these new skills and put them into practice during future treatments and their upcoming classroom assessments.

Beauty therapy tutor at Riverside College Jill Welsh said: “This visit to Urban Decay was fantastic. It was a brilliant opportunity for our students to gain confidence and develop tips and skills from the professional makeup artists.

“I would just like to say a huge thank you to Urban Decay for holding the session for our students and we look forward to working with them again in the future.”
