Mika Halloween on Urban Rush (click on link to view)
As always, Urban Rush was a blast… Fiona Forbes had us in stitches and Michael Eckford played the straight man for once.
We always prepare for the Mika segments on TV, but this Halloween feature on “Day of the Dead” Makeup took those preparations to new heights. Our models gamely showed up for 6am make-ups that took three fastidious hours and much blood and sweat…. and then some more blood. (See the previous post for our homemade blood recipe).
Karin’s makeup on Leannne was created using the MakeUp Forever Cream Palette, A waterproof gel liner (applied with a fine brush) for detail work, real gold leaf and Mac Pure Pigments, and miniature crystals
Elizabeth’s makeup on Doug was created using spirit gum, cotton, blood, Rubber Mask Grease Paints and Castor oil (for shading blood), the MakeUp Forever Cream palette (for black and white and silver) and small spider stencils applied through the airbrush.
We would like to thank everyone who helped with this Segment:
Manuel Avila for the Making of Video and Photo Shoot (www.solsticeimage.ca), Jessica Mason for the beautiful styling, Leah Conway for the incredible hair (and face… she was one of our models), Lianne Bjornerud and Doug D. Styles for modeling so patiently and stunningly and Charlene Olsem for assisting.
Happy Halloween everyone!
