Makeup FX artist Justine McKinney has been infatuated with transforming herself into mind-blowing monsters, ghoulish creatures, and even comedic cartoons after just one college course, and years of self-training. However, as is the nature of the real world, cosmetic FX can be pricey, and so Justine found that the least expensive way to pursue her passion was through body paint.
As cost effective as the paint jobs are, they don’t come without a price, as each creation takes her anywhere from 10-20 hours each.
According to Justine, her work, though labor intensive, provides a zen state while painting. And as for her artistic tendencies, “My style is definitely more cartoonish in my opinion; I like bold outlines and comic type images and I think that shows!”
