Since its FX debut, American Horror Story has been all the rave! TEMPTU was glad to join the Circus Freak Show. (Yes, we are freaks too!) Makeup Designer and Lead Artist Kerry Herta created three fright-inspiring looks for the season’s campaign, using TEMPTU PRO products. We got a chance to catch up with the creative and learn more about her looks and beauty inspirations.
My experience as The Makeup Designer and Lead Artist for this year’s American Horror Story Campaign, was truly a labor of love and such an incredible honor. These campaigns are fast and furious with just a couple days of prep and then a few days of shooting. It really is like doing a whole feature film in less than 10 days!
I am so proud of all the images from this campaign, but one that is most personal is the giant tent dress shot. I had a last minute idea to add a black line from her chin to the center of her chest. The client trusted my idea, which made it risky, but seeing how it turned out paid off.
Do you have any tips or tricks on airbrushing that you would like to share?
I always tell my students to treat their equipment like an investment. Learning how to trouble shoot is crucial to airbrushing, as well as, knowing the equipment inside and out and how to care for it.
