Chantelle said: “I really enjoyed showing my skills to the audience of both families and schools.

“Other than practical skills, I have gained the confidence to be able to talk about what I’m doing and really showcase myself.

“I would definitely recommend studying a make-up course as it is a real confidence booster.”

Kirsty Lewin, make-up tutor, who helped supervise the students at the event, added: “The most enjoyable experience I had at the event was spending time with all the students who took part, showcasing their talents and being fantastic ambassadors for the North Notts college sites of Worksop and Retford.”
