** All the steps are in front of my DIY Green Screen because I was making this for some fun videos of me just acting like a dead weirdo. **
Step 1: Materials
*toilet paper (thinner is better)
*light foundation (Rimmel @ walmart)
*dark eyeshadows (mine from dollar store)
*Teeth Paint!! (walmart, "zombie" and "blood")
*eye contacts (mine by "EDIT")
*black lipstick, or purple (if you'd like)
Step 2: Prep your Face!
If you start applying the latex with a brush, kiss it goodbye because the latex will dry in the bristles. I started with a brush, but then continued with my fingers. It was easier that way!
Tip: To get latex off your fingers, just roll it off like glue.
Step 3: Start with the TP
Just dab the latex where you want to add texture, or where you want to apply the toilet paper. Don't let it dry too long, and start pressing the TP where you applied the latex. 1-ply is easier to work with, or splitting your TP into a thinner sheet. You may even be able to use tissues.
Once you've applied TP in a certain area, dab some more latex over it, to saturate and flatten it against your face. The layers add a cool effect. Later on, if you add flat layers of TP, you can tear them open and apply blood on the inside edges to make a real-open-wound effect. I just wanted to keep mine easy, so I used the TP as texture.
Also, if your fingers get stuck and end up ripping some off your face, no biggie. They are battle wounds. Just apply as desired and make sure to coat it with the liquid latex.
TIP: Never get it in your HAIR. If you are going over your eyebrows, coat them with a glue stick first. If you get it into your hair line, use handsoap and warm water to loosen it from the hairs and individually wiggle it off, slowly, until you reach the end of the hair and pull it out. It's tough to get it out.
Step 4: Flesh-TIME
If you're unable to see too well through your contacts, be more generous with the foundation in the bumpy areas and just let it dry longer. I realized that I could have done this to prevent less while showing through.
Step 5: Deaden-Yourself
I used light gray to start with, went under and around my eyes and I drug it out to the corners of my eyes and beyond. Almost to my hairline. I also made sure to get the inner eye creases very well. Then I went over it all with some darker gray/black eyeshadow and just deepened everything. One other thing I did, I took some shadow onto my fingertips and dabbed it into the wounds on my face to give them some dimension and that made it look dirtier, also.
You can take some pink, if you'd like, and go around under your eyes to give them a sickly-look.
Step 7: Dental Distortion!
Step 8: Bloody Complextion
Add some black lipstick and smear it around so that it looks purple and get it a little further into your mouth so that it looks natural. (If you'd like.)
Step 9: Add the clothes!
Remember, you were attacked by bloody zombies who were vicious, and that's why you and your clothes are messed up. So think about how you were attacked and plan your wardrobe accordingly. ;)
