The Makeup Mind

Learning, Evolving, Creating...

My name is Jason Henricks and Makeup is my passion. There is just something magical and amazing about the transformation and stories that you can tell.

Here are a few samples of my work as I make my way through the Master Makeup Course at Cinema Make-up School and beyond.

Please enjoy and feel free to comment and say hello!

What a difference lighting makes… I love playing with different lighting during a shoot for some killer in-camera effects. Bump up the vibrance in #Photoshop and BOOSH. My #Ancient #Alien has a bit of a #cenobite look here. Sweet. #makeupartist #spfx #MUA #specialfxmakeup #makeupfx #spfxmua #horror #scifi #monster #aliens #sculpting #Prosthetic #paint #Hellraiser

#Peaches #Krueger is in the building…. Such a great night! Now on with the #Nightmare! #FX #makeup #nofilter

Over the weekend I got the chance to turn a drag icon into a horror icon… Talk about a dream come true! For the Midnight Mass showing of “A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2” Peaches Christ became Peaches Krueger with a little help from some slipcast latex pieces I created, a bit of old age stipple, aqua and alcohol colors and a bit of shadow. It was a total fan-boy moment, capped off with meeting Mark Patton (Jesse in the film) who is the ultimate scream queen in my book. It was such an amazing opportunity and can not wait to work with Peaches and this awesome crew again!
