Last month we brought you news of legendary makeup artist Rick Baker's collaboration with M-A-C Cosmetics for a limited-edition Halloween collection, available in stores until October 31. The seven-time Oscar-winning effects creator has worked on horror cinema's finest films, including The Exorcist, An American Werewolf in London, and The Howling – and now he's showing you how the magic happens in a new video from New York City-based documentarian and photographer Steven Sebring.
In the clip below, Baker creates a Day of the Dead skull makeup look using M-A-C's spooky palette, walking viewers through every step of the process and detailing the product and method of application. It's a nice opportunity to soak up some of the master's mojo.
Baker expresses his hopes that people will duplicate the work, or feel inspired to create their own – which is pretty encouraging coming from a guy who has invented some of the greatest creatures in horror movie history.
Visit M-A-C Cosmetics for more info, and look for more of the maestro's work in Disney's Maleficent, coming to theaters in 2014.
