Everett makeup artist offers tricky tips


Herald Writer

EVERETT — Have you wondered how Frankenstein’s complexion came to be that gorgeous green? Or how Superman’s muscles got so big?

And Dracula. How did he manage to grow those fine choppers?

Maybe it was all makeup.

And now, Everett makeup artist Scott Randall will show trick-or-treaters how to do the same.

Randall will give tips and tricks on Halloween makeup during a two-hour workshop at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the banquet room of the Flying Pig Restaurant, 2929 Colby Ave. in Everett.

Cost is $5 with proceeds going to the Everett Jaycees, a local service group that organizes community events, such as the upcoming annual Haunted Forest at Forest Park on Oct. 21 and 22 and again on Oct. 27 through Halloween.

Randall should be easy to spot. He’ll be the one dressed as a vampire.

Using his own makeup job as an example, Randall will give an overview on colors, shades and shadowing.

He’ll also show how to best use fake noses, ears and scars.

"That’s when makeup gets really fun," he said. "The main thing you want to do is be creative. It’s all about color. Take what you’ve seen in movies."

He’ll also give pointers on putting together the overall costume.

Makeup instead of masks is a good idea for the safety of little ones, he said. Kids can breathe and see wearing makeup. That’s not always the case with masks, Randall said.

For more information, call Randall at 425-252-3352.
