Introduction: As Realistic As Zombie Makeup Gets!
Whether you're going to a party, making a zombie movie, having a photoshoot, holding a Zombie March, or you just want to mess with the general public, zombie makeup is always a fun way to spend an afternoon.
YOU WILL NEED:
--Red, yellow, blue, and black stage makeup
--White cream stage makeup
--Green cream stage makeup
--Assorted sponges and tissues
--Something to use for blood (I use red gel food coloring - the kind that comes in a tube. It doesn't taste bad and it won't stain my skin)
--Red lipliner or a red watercolor pencil
--baby powder and a face puff
Step 1: WASH YOUR FACE
Washing your face will help the makeup stick better.
Step 2: LINE YOUR EYES
Line your top and bottom eyelids with red, especially the inner corner. I used a watercolor pencil (found at craft stores), but red lipliner works nice, too.
Step 3: MIX YOUR ZOMBIE BASE
Mix together foundation a few shades lighter than your skin, a little white cream makeup, and a little green stage makeup. You should end up with a nice zombie-ish color.
Step 4: APPLY AND SET
STEP FOUR! Smear it on your face (and your neck, but I was too lazy), your lips, and into your hairline. Don't worry about getting it even, you're trying to look splotchy. Then pat it lightly with a little bit of baby powder to set the makeup. I used an old face puff to apply the powder.
Step 5: MAKE BRUISES
To make bruises under your eyes, dab yellow lightly in a spot a little bit bigger than you want the bruises. Next, mix red and blue with a little bit of yellow and dab it on in layers.
Step 6: FINISH YOUR LIPS
Pucker your lips and sponge on the bruise color. When you un-pucker your lips, they'll look like they have cracks in them.
Step 7: ADD SPLOTCHES
Use a loose sponge to dab on the bruise color to give yourself a splotchy look. Pat it gently with a tissue so it doesn't look so harsh.
Step 8: FINISH AND ADD BLOOD
Add more bruises and set everything with another light coating of baby powder.
Smear on as much blood as you want, and hit the town!
