How ‘American Horror Story’ Makeup Artist Christien Tinsley Creates the Chilling Looks

6 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

American Horror Story” needs more than your run-of-the-mill makeup job.

With characters like a Minotaur, a serial killer that uses the skin of its victims for a mask, and a decapitated Kathy Bates, the FX drama needs a professional touch to bring those characters to life.

Enter Christien Tinsley, the makeup artist responsible for “Ahs’” creepiest looks. Along with prosthetic designer Jason Hamer and Mike Mekash, plus makeup effects artists Eryn Krueger Mekash, Christopher Nelson, David L. Anderson, Cristina Patterson and Rob Freitas, he was nominated for an Emmy for prosthetic makeup for a series, miniseries, movie or special. It’s the third nomination he’s received for his work on “Ahs.”

Though working on a show with such unique character designs may seem like a dream come true for a makeup designer, Tinsley says he and his crew faced time constraints, often getting the script a week before the episode started shooting. »

10 July 2014 10:12 AM, PDT | | See recent Dread Central news »

While we try to figure out why the Emmys exist when incredible actors like "Hannibal's" Mads Mikkelsen and "Orphan Black's" Tatiana Maslany are snubbed, we do want to congratulate this year's few horror nominees, especially "American Horror Story: Coven" with 17 nods.

Below are the horror highlights. For the full rundown of all the talented nominees, visit the official Emmys website, and be sure to watch the live broadcast of the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards on NBC on Monday, August 25th, at 8:00 Pm Et/5:00 Pm Pt.

Also notable, if not quite horror, are "Game of Thrones" with 19 nominations (including Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Directing for Neil Marshall, Outstanding Supporting Actor for Peter Dinklage, and Outstanding Supporting Actress for Lena Headey) and "True Detective" with 12 (including Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Lead Actor for both Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey).
