AMERICAN HORROR STORY - GET THE LOOK
A Halloween how-to with Emmy nominated make-up artist, Kerry Herta; the women behind this season's campaign photos for the super-scary American Horror Story campaign.
'On the skin tone side of the face, I used Veil Cosmetics Sunset Skin Foundation. I kept it matte on camera with Veil Cosmetics new AutoMatte, a mattifying touch-up base. For the painted side of her face, I first used Kat Von D Beauty’s Lock-It Foundation, followed by European Body Arts Endura Pro Airbrush Paint to further seal it down, and create a more opaque paleness to the skin.
For the eyes, I started with Rituel De Fille’s Ash and Ember Eye Soot in Obsidian on both lids up towards the eyebrow. At the lash-line on top and bottom, I mixed the Kat Von D Beauty Super Brow colours in Roxy & Aubergine and smudged it around. I then enhanced the smoky effect with purples from Viseart’s #08 Editorial palette. For the eyebrow, I also used the Kat Von D Beauty White Out Super Brow Pomade and brushed it into the brows lightly. After applying Mademoiselle’s silk lashes with my LaTweez lighted tweezers,
I whitened those up as well with the same Super Brow Pomade.
The lips on the purple side were done using the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Roxy, and the white side is their Studded Kiss White Out Crème Mixer. Lose the Halo Lip Concealer by Sigma Beauty was used to help prevent feathering.'
