Made up with Make-up Artistry and SFX

Khea-mai's final submission piece

Khea-Mai felt her time at UCEN Manchester has allowed her to grow in confidence

Khea-Mai Phoenix applied to study at UCEN Manchester after being impressed by the level of work showcased at our UCEN Manchester open day events.

She was instantly attracted to the welcoming environment, and in particular, enjoyed seeing existing students work and being able to speak to tutors and students at the Open Day.

Khea-Mai studied Theatre Production, Hair, Costume and Make-up with our expert Make-up Artistry and Special Effects department and has learned a range of skills, including industry standard techniques, how to network with industry contacts, and where to find work when she graduates.

She said:

My tutors have always been on hand to speak me, whether in person or through email. They’ve given me sound advice which I can take into the industry, and I feel so prepared.

Khae-mai always wanted to become Head Make-up Artist for an internationally renowned beauty brand and has ambitions to own her own company in the future.

Khea-Mai felt her time at UCEN Manchester has allowed her to grow in confidence. She said: “I am most proud of how far I have come over the last three years of study. I believe my confidence has grown massively as well as my skills as an artist. I have most enjoyed getting to discover myself as an artist through experimenting with the different challenges each module sets.”
