The Specialty of Special Effects Makeup: William Penn Student Offers Special Effects Makeup Tutorial

William Penn University

(OSKALOOSA, IOWA)— On April 16, at 4:30 p.m., William Penn senior, RazZae DeGeest, will be providing a free special effects makeup tutorial. In the tutorial, DeGeest will be showing individuals how to create their own special effect looks from the comfort of their own homes. The workshop will feature an easy to understand, hands-on experience. The event will be hosted at Face of Mahaska and will run for approximately two hours.

“I just want to present people with a more unusual art form. I was always the weird kid that couldn’t even successfully draw a stick person, now I’m the weird kid that creeps people out by creating realistic cuts and bruises,” said DeGeest.

DeGeest first became interested in special effects makeup when she used her mother’s safety pins, along with a hefty amount of Elmer’s glue, to make it appears as though her head had been stitched to her body for a theme day at school. Since she experienced that first thrill of frightening her peers, she has since continued her art of special effects makeup. Although it started as a hobby, DeGeest has since been involved with various student projects at William Penn University along with a couple community productions.

“If you really wanna turn heads this Halloween, I’ll see you the 16thth,” said DeGeest.
