Students hold Halloween makeup workshop
The “Off University Drive Players”, a new student organization on the UIS campus recently held a Halloween makeup workshop to share theatre tricks.
“The goal for the Halloween workshop is to create a good cute monster so people can learn how to do this on their own” said member “Lucy Black”.
Black says it’s best to practice what you’re going to do in advance, so you know how long it will take and what techniques to use. It’s also important to make sure you buy the right type of makeup. Theatre and Halloween makeup usually require several layers that you don’t use day to day.
The club was formed to educated students on campus about theatre. They take trips to different plays and hold workshops like this one.
“Our goal is to further the entire theatre experience for any and all UIS students,” said Black.
