Working at the Yorkshire Scare Grounds Scream Park for Halloween 2017

Throughout October I had the pleasure of working at the Yorkshire Scare Grounds Scream Park – a delightfully scary horror attraction in Wakefield. Built into a huge woodland, the Scare Grounds hosts several mini mazes full of live actors that aim to scare! From a slaughter house to a hospital and a hotel to the wild west, it wasn’t short on creatively themed scares.

I was thrilled to be accepted as part of the Makeup Artist team for 2017 after passing my audition (I had to create a gory ghost), and I was so excited to get started and meet the other lovely ladies.

The other ladies in the makeup team were all absolutely lovely – so down to earth, friendly and above all, mega talented too!

We had many ghosts and ghouls to get ready for each evening at the Scare Grounds so we were flat out working back-to-back to get through as many live scare actors as we could within three hours.

During the time I worked there we had to keep our gory looks under wraps so as not to ruin the scares for anybody that was booked to visit. But now that the event is over, I can share some of my gory and gruesome makeup looks with you all!

Enjoy!

Visiting BBC Radio Sheffield to talk about the Professional Beauty Awards and spooky Halloween makeovers

On Halloween I had the absolute pleasure of visiting the lovely people over at BBC Radio Sheffield to be interviewed and give the gorgeous Kat Harbourne a gory makeover!

I visited the Breakfast Show that’s usually presented by Toby Foster, but he was away at the time so I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Rob Staton instead. I’d been invited over to talk about all things spooky – from my career in makeup to the Professional Beauty Awards, and SFX makeup to how you can pull a gory Halloween makeup look together at home using items from your kitchen cupboards. After my interview, I was to make over the lovely Kat Harbourne and turn her into something a little gruesome!

The interview was great and I loved chatting to Rob about makeup, his fear of clowns and of course, what I had in store for Kat too!

So when it came to the time to make over the lovely Kat, I decided we’d do a half face zombie as we were a little pushed for a time. A zombie in transition if you will! I had a great time making Kat over and she even let me add a little blood to her look – something she wasn’t keen on before her makeover! She was the perfect model and got into the Halloween spirit so much that she even made a scare cam video of her frightening everybody in the office through the afternoon which was absolutely hilarious!

I can’t even explain how wonderful the people at BBC Radio Sheffield are. So accommodating, friendly and so encouraging too! I had a fabulous time meeting and chatting with them and really enjoyed my interview too.

Thank you so much to BBC Radio Sheffield for inviting me over – I loved my first ever radio appearance and can’t wait to go back again sometime soon!
