Makeup Dept. Head Kerry Herta, a 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 Guild Award winner and Emmy nominee, is the creative force behind some of the industry’s most memorable faces.  For 20 years, she’s perfected her award-winning makeup technique and adapted it to the most current styles and production technology. Today, she’s regarded for her mastery of HD makeup.

In 2010, Kerry took a break from her mix of film, television and editorial work to oversee All My Children’s transition to the HD format. By applying her one-of-a-kind technique, she revamped the legendary looks of a well-known cast that included Susan Lucci and, in the process, set a new standard for makeup on daytime television. Her work earned her a 2011 Daytime Emmy nomination.

After 100 episodes in HD, Kerry returned to the mix of film, television, beauty and editorial work that’s made her one of the industry’s most versatile artists.

Her makeup designs made the promotional campaigns for FX’s American Horror StoryPose and Nip/Tuck some of the most talked-about campaigns ever. She oversaw both the makeup and hair departments for The Alphabet Killer (2008). Her work also appears in the feature films Expired (2008), Aces ‘n Eights (2008) and The Gods of Circumstance (2009). 

After years of mentoring young artists – many of them poorly trained at high-price makeup schools – Kerry created Colour Box Makeup Studios. Kerry firmly believes that working professionals with proven experience are best suited to teach future makeup artists.
