In a recent trip to London for the United Makeup Artists expo, Skin Illustrator’s own Kenny Myers had the pleasure of sitting down with the talented makeup artist and hairdresser Victoria Northbrooke for an article on her site.
In the interview, released May 12th, Kenny talks candidly about everything from getting started as a makeup artist to working on some of Hollywood’s biggest projects to the creation of Skin Illustrator.

Meet SFX Master Kenny Myers: From Star Trek to The Last Samurai
The behemoth stand for Premier Products Inc (PPI) dominated the north wing of the hugely successful United Makeup Artist Exhibition 2016, last weekend in London.
The PPI stand was not only impressive in scale but also in calibre. It showcased some of the biggest names in special effects makeup, from the global film industry.
In partnership PPI and Skin Illustrator launched a new palette with Oscar nominated Love Larson and Eva Von Bahr, during the fantastic two day event that brought together the best of the industry.
At the helm of Skin Illustrator is multi-nominated and award winning makeup artist Kenny Myers. He is the ‘godfather’ of special effects makeup products and creator of the original Skin Illustrator SFX palette.
Dressed in a floral shirt Kenny Myers is disarmingly laid back and his deep, rolling laughter is infectious. You’d also be hard pressed to find a more honest voice or a man of more integrity in Hollywood.
Kenny and PPI want the stand to ‘feel like a big living room’ so everyone can get up close with the artists without feeling crowded. He especially enjoys the UMA Expo because of its relaxed, yet highly professional atmosphere. But most of all he says he ‘just loves meeting new people and talking shop’.
