Emma Rutherford, editorial director of Warpaint, spent the day at Barking and Dagenham College watching students compete and judging their work.

The winner of the level two competition was Lucy Kenwood, 17, from Dagenham, who created a sugar skull from the Mexican Day of the Dead festival.

Lucy said: “Doing it on yourself is easier than doing it on model because you are more familiar with your own face and you know what looks good on you.”

Media make-up level two students Gabriele Ivoskeviciute, 18, from Dagenham, and Ellie Ashford, 17, from Barking, were highly commended for a skull design they created.
