In October 2011 Illamasqua held The Distinction In Make-up Artistry Awards, where 12 finalists battled it out to become the winner. Kat Vogart was Illamasqua’s winner in the 2nd year Foundation category. We caught up with Kat at The Solent Southampton Free Range graduate show in Shoreditch, were she created and directed the make-up for the fashion show on the night.
I walk into the Free range event (held in a warehouse in Shoreditch) to be greeted by the hussel and bussel of back stage: models, clothes, hairspray and of course the make-up.
I spot Kat organising her team of 20 make-up artists all from Southampton Solent University. She had split her team in to 3 categories giving them all a different face chart she created to refer to. Alison Meek (runner up in the awards) designed the front of house look (face chart below).
Once Kat had finished, were caught up with her to see what she had been up to since the competition……..
Why did you apply for the competition?
This competition is very individual as the brief is more of a guideline so trust your instincts and develop your own unique style.
Illamasqua would like to wish Kat Good Luck in IMATS LA and a well done to the team who worked with Kat at the Southampton Solent graduate show. Here are a few more pictures from the evening………
