Have you been wowed by the terrifyingly gorgeous spider-inspired makeup artistry present in the latest American Horror Story promo image?

The detail and realism is astounding.

Kat Von D also  re-posted the image on her Instagram, shouting out Kerry Herta, the masterful makeup artist who used products from Von D’s cosmetic line.

So how did Kerry Herta, founder of Colourbox Makeup Studios, create the goth look of our wildest fantasies? Let’s break down the products used by the makeup genius:

Kat Von D Beauty’s Metal Crush Eyeshadow in Static Age and Thunderstruck

That deep red <3

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics’ Liptar in NSFW

Herta referred to these two OCC products as staples she includes in every AHS campaign — and they’re vegan and cruelty-free!

Herta said the silver highlight “helped bring this beauty to life.”

Individually, these products are all under $20! While most of us probably don’t possess the steady hand and creative imagination of Kerry Herta, we can certainly be witchy beauties on a budget and experiment!
