Hard work has paid off for Southern Institute of Technology (SIT) beauty therapy student Tania Hayes who has been named New Zealand’s top makeup student for 2015.

The New Zealand-wide makeup competition, organised and run by Wendy Hill Cosmetics Ltd in association with tertiary training institutions, acknowledged excellence in makeup studies amongst students undertaking study in recognised beauty therapy, beauty services and/or makeup courses.

The competition has been running since 2005, and this is the second time a SIT student has taken top honours.

Tania, who has also completed a hairdressing qualification at SIT, said it was a last minute decision to enter.

“It was a lot of hard work, but I was hopeful,” she said.

Wendy Hill Cosmetics Managing Director, Tiffany Pule said Tania showed an excellent understanding of photographic makeup and that was very evident from the photographs.

“Not only was her technique to a very high standard, but the makeup shades chosen were perfect for the model’s skin tone and resulted in a beautiful sparkling bride.”

Tutor Joanne Terry said she encouraged Tania to enter and was thrilled she had won.

“I’m really proud.

“All her hard work has paid off.’’

Both Tania and Joanne consider the win a SIT team effort and would like to thank fellow Diploma of Beauty Therapy student and model Devon Millan of Gore, Belinda Redpath SIT tutor and owner of Bell Bridal who provided the dress and SIT staff member, photographer Elana Bai for the fabulous photos.
