Gregg Hubbard's Halloween Makeup for Martha Stewart Living
With a wave of his magic ... spirit gum and sponges, Gregg Hubbard turned toddlers into sprites, and a teenager into an ogre, for Martha Stewart Living's October issue. "It was a specialty shoot, so there was a specific point of view," he said. "I just had to make sure to bring the appropriate products." Hubbard custom-fit ears for each elf and sprite, and applied green and brown treatments to the ogre's exposed skin – including his feet.
The makeup artist and hairstylist recommends tweaking the various appendages that are part of Halloween getups. "Purchasing, say, prosthetics doesn't mean they're the right size," Hubbard explained. "You might have to cut them a bit, as you would with regular beauty enhancements, such as false eyelashes or hair extensions."
