Fall of 2016, I took my first stage makeup class where I could experiment with different ways to do makeup. We studied corrective makeup, middle age, old age, and did some fantasy projects. In Fall of 2016, I was recruited to assist the Zombie Run 5k on campus, where students dress up as zombies and race/attack others. I enjoy experimenting with different types of makeup and different styles for fun.
