I wanted to make myself into a functional zombie. I didn't want to do the overly dramatic, not the green face, and not the raccoon. I wanted to make a real, damned zombie! So here I am, zombified! You will see, the trick in my zombie design, is to keep it neutral. Go with your own skin tones and just add some ROT. It's easy, but time-consuming if you're a perfectionist.
** 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
*Liquid Latex (i bought the big jug @ spirit halloween for multiple applications)
*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!
Think about what wounds you want, or if you just want nasty-looking skin all over. Use moisturizer and make sure that your face isn't dry before latex application. Pop in your contacts to make sure that you don't get any bad stuff in your eyes. (it's said that you need to put them in before applying makeup..although, with this look, it makes it more difficult, haha)
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.
