Between the emotionally devastating plot lines and the physical energy involved in running from (pretend) zombies — not to mention the mortal peril one faces while looking at flowers — working as an actress on The Walking Dead is a pretty serious gig. Emily Kinney, though, makes it look easy. So, how does the actress manage to balance her day job, personal life, and her much-lauded music career? Better yet, how does she do it while looking so good?
Not ones to settle for wondering, we asked makeup artist Tina Turnbow to pick the actress slash songstress’ brain about everything from her beauty routine (on and off set) to her feelings about the new season of The Walking Dead. Ahead, Kinney’s refreshingly candid answers to Turnbow’s questions, and gorgeous portraits that the makeup artist took while they chatted.
