Rugby College student Lydia Noble is celebrating after winning the Student Theatrical Make-up Competition at The Professional Make-up Academy’s Media Make-up & Theatre Event in Birmingham, picking up over £1500 worth of prizes.

Lydia, 20, is currently studying for a Level 3 Extended Diploma in Production Arts (Theatrical and Media Make-up) at Rugby College and attended the event with three other students – Alicia Rose, Isis Campbell and Susan Moss.

She said, “It was my first competition so I really didn’t think I’d win. When I heard my name called it was so exciting, especially as all the other competitors were so good.

“I definitely want to go into film and TV make up, so this is great for my CV. And the prizes I won were amazing – lots of special effects make-up and brushes as well as a trip to London for a professional photo shoot which will help me build up my portfolio.”

Kelly Taylor, lecturer at Rugby College said, “I’m really proud of all our students who took part, they have done really well and worked so hard. For Lydia to win in her first competition is fantastic, and the prizes she has won, as well as the experience, will set her up really well for her future career.”
