Saturday morning, Coven FX hosted a FREE makeup demo @ Loft Ensemble specifically geared towards haunt makeup artists. In the world of pro haunts, makeup and FX artists are expected to plow through dozens of actors a night. This requires different techniques than prepping talent to be photo or screen ready. It’s fast and dirty, with no room for OCD. With years of haunt experience from Fright Fest and 17th Door, three of Coven FX’s artists showcased two looks for a five minute makeup, as well as a 15 and 30 minute makeup.
