A look back at creative make-up in 2018

Having been involved in a wide range of highly acclaimed productions, 2018 has been a busy, but abundantly exciting and fulfilling year for TrainSmart Australia’s TSA College of Creative Arts – and especially its students. The most recent of which was Jesus Christ Superstar.

Jesus Christ Superstar is a rock masterpiece written and produced by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber. It’s a global sensation that exploded into theatres in 1971, and thereafter changed the face of musical theatre forever.

Other highlights from 2018 included the following events:

The Perth Hair and Make-up Artist Awards is a ground breaking event that highlights annually, the amazing talent of Perth’s Hair Stylists, Makeup Artists and Body Painters. Visually stunning events like this are commonplace in fashion meccas like Milan, Paris and London. The PHMUA Awards, however, is the only one of its kind in Western Australia. In its third year, the 2018 event has continued to become greater each year with more categories and entrants.
