Currently working in Los Angeles
Hello, I'm Selina Justine of Halfhearted Zombie Makeup & FX. I specialize in the abstract, eyecatching, and disturbing.
I'm a certified makeup artist
fluent in every kind of technique and tool. I dabble in hairstyling as well, although I've had minimal training. I like to be as involved as possible in everything I partake in. I do everything- from beauty makeup to special effects to body painting- but every makeup look I create has one thing in common: it is transformational.
I am currently studying forensic science books to improve my realism in prosthetic application, blood spatter, and wound simulation.
Authentic Period Makeup:
I am well versed in vintage black and white makeup techniques, and the development of makeup trends throughout the last 100 years.
I understand what it takes to build a cohesive color story throughout a photograph, taking into consideration the wardrobe, hair, set design, and model's features.
I have been well trained in the disinfection and sanitation procedures of tools, makeup, and workspace and always abide by said rules.
I completed the Master Makeup Course at Blush School of Makeup [San Francisco] in July 2011. I completed the Prosthetics and Advanced Special Effects Makeup programs at Cinema Makeup School [Los Angeles] in May 2012. I've been thoroughly trained in face shapes, corrective techniques, multi-cultural skin tones, color theory, disinfection and sanitation, skin types, and countless other courses.
Things I'd love to add to my portfolio:
-Eerie supernatural concepts
-Outrageous couture makeup
-Anything horror/special effects
-Whimsical high fashion
-Vaudeville/ circus freak show
-Partnering with innovative clothing designers
-Videos: music, film, television, or modeling
