When you’re enjoying your downtime, taking in the beautiful scenery, and then someone randomly sticks their big head in your personal space and you sadly realize that you can never have nice things if @smashleylevy is nearby. @imvictoriapratt #chillaxing #nature #rest #weather #summer #invasion #personalspace #rude #landscape #scenery #fields #sunglasses #lotd #aotd #iotd #makeup #makeupartist #atl #atlanta #cowboys

In honor of Black Summer being revealed as the #1 streamed show on Netflix in the UK, I’d like to put the spotlight on @jaime_king, who’s brave transformative deconstruction over the span of the season gives us all The Ripley (Sigourney Weaver in Aliens) feels. Aesthetically, we wanted the viewer to watch Rose unravel, physically and emotionally, until she broke. At that point, we saw her as a kind of Phoenix, rising from the ashes, and reborn with a new strength and an inner power. By the end, all the tears, wounds, and destruction became aesthetic badges of honor... ... with a couple of silly selfies thrown in because, why not? #blacksummer #netflix #zed #viral #epidemiology #forensics #zombieapocalypse #outbreak #run #dark #destruction #aesthetics #breakdown #fx #fxmakeup #jaimeking #lotd #motd #aotd #iotd #ripley #protagonist #makeup #makeupartist #calgary #atl #atlanta

AND THAT’S A WRAP ON SEASON 3 OF CLAWS! After losing all concept of the time/space continuum, @ignaciamsa and I somehow made it through the season in one piece, with reparably broken spirits. It’s literally been a whirlwind of Beat faces, beaten *up* faces, slight blood loss, and too many inside jokes to try to poorly explain, other than with an eel face (@thejennlyon ). @karrueche: thank you for letting me co-parent and “curate” your face, whilst making art, and @itisijudyreyes1 thank you for having such great DNA, that I get to suffer from high self esteem when I look at your face and pretend I had anything to do with it. @carriepreston : GOOD EVENING and thank you for all the giggles and snark. @jasonantoon, 80’s lyrics podcast asap, as well as the great “balls vs blower” debate of 2019, @therebeccacreskoff i loved our “special time”, usually in a dark corner on set, haha, and @evandaigle gurrlll we need to be horrible waiters and spill *all* the tea all over each other. And most importantly, to @ignaciamsa “You’re really killing it, gurrrrlll. I mean, you got this shit dowwwwnnnnn. Well, gotta go. Bye.” #claws #clawstnt #clawsseason3 #makeup #makeupartist #face #eyes #faceart #manateecounty #crystals #motd #lotd #skin #skincare #department #tired #wrapped #aesthetics #beauty #stories #neworleans #nola #atl #atlanta

Now that we’ve all had a couple days to check out Black Summer on Netflix, let’s delve into the ZED (our codename for the Infected aka “zombies”) design concept for the show. @johnhyams and I ultimately decided that the infection was to be a hybrid of a hemorrhagic fever (most commonly known as Ebola, derivative of Marburg virus) and a specific strain of Rabies, which effects the central nervous system. Lymphatically based, the disease would lay dormant in the body until a systemic shutdown (death) activated it. The instantaneous activation would cause the extremities to suddenly and violently displace both blood and bile, hence the black and red patterns surrounding the eyes, nose, and mouth. Pustules and nodes would erupt around lymphatic areas, and the veins/capillaries would burst with the surge, as well as decay/discolor at rapid rates. Pus would ooze along the affected areas as well. The Hemorrhagic fever aspect would contribute to the appearance of the ZEDs, as well as explain why the infected changed so suddenly and violently, and the Rabies aspect would explain the fast moving, aggressive and relentless nature of the beings. #blacksummer #netflix #zed #zombie #apocalypse #zombieapocalypse #ebola #rabies #hemorrhagic #fast #design #lotd #motd #aotd #zotd #makeup #makeupartist #atl #atlanta #calgary

Had the absolute pleasure of designing the makeup for this show, as well as “co parenting” the degradation look of “Rose” with @jaime_king. With @johnhyams at the helm, we created a new viral antagonist that tells a story as well as portrays a visual metaphor. Shot by @dpronlevy, it makes the apocalypse look surprisingly alluring... #blacksummer #netflix #apocolypse #postapocalyptic #viral #epidemic #metaphor #visual #art #darkart #chiaroscuro #aotd #binge #curator #haunting #motd #triage #death #makeup #makeupartist #spfx #spfxartist #atl #atlanta #calgary #April11
