Gabriela Interviews Brian Kinney, Emmy Nominated Makeup Artist of The Walking Dead, Westworld, and Game of Thrones

“Sometimes, you have to be your own childhood hero.” - Brian Kinney

Monsters, blood, and gore may seem like frightening business, but Brian Kinney’s made a 20 year career from the spooky side of makeup. In this month’s episode of Classic Beauty with Bésame, Gabriela sits down with Brian for a fascinating interview.  

Find out how a Frankenstein costume gone wrong inspired Brian to pursue a career in makeup. Plus, get some inside details on his upcoming projects, the remake of Roald Dahl’s The Witches and the much less spooky Space Jam 2!



Perfect for Halloween, this month’s podcast episode will take you behind the scenes of special effects makeup and might inspire you to get creative with your own ghoulish looks.

Check out the photo gallery below to see more of Bryan's work, but please be warned - the photos appear quite graphic in nature.
