Four of West Thames College's makeup lecturers were involved with the filming of the fourth series of ITV's period drama Mr Selfridge over the summer, which gave many students on the HND in Specialist Makeup opportunities for valuable work experience behind the scenes. Students provided valuable assistance to the makeup team by organising continuity pictures, painting nails and making tea and coffee.
Year 2 HND Specialist Makeup student Megan Drinkwater, above, put her makeup skills to good use by getting an extra ready to film a scene on the "shop floor" of Selfridges.
This lavish period drama is inspired by the turbulent life of charismatic American retail entrepreneur Harry Gordon Selfridge, played by Jeremy Piven. The new series is due to be aired in January 2016.
