Gory & Frightening Zombie Makeup

To rock a terrifying and gory look, all you need is stage blood, some bone-chilling vampire-inspired contact lenses, and wax or liquid latex in flesh tone, toilet paper, white face cream, a basic multi-color makeup kit. Create a gory, bloody look with ripped skin and blood oozing from it. 

Apply the liquid latex first and let it dry. Once it turns clear, use toilet paper to create whatever skin effect you want. Wrinkly, torn, or however gross you want it. Cover it up with latex again. Blend the whole look with cream. You can even go for gashes in the skin. Now use your makeup skills to achieve the zombie look. Finally, complete the look by wearing a Halloween Blind White Contact Lenses which will complete your overall horror, gory & frightening zombie makeup theme giving it the best finishing touches. 

'Game of Thrones' Costumes 

You can always go for a 'GoT' Themed mask, but there is more fun if you get that look through makeup and accessories. There are many characters that you can choose from. With hairdos, wigs, and old prom dresses and shearling coats, you can easily replicate the looks of many female 'GoT' characters, but the one character where you can play with makeup is 'Leaf.'

Leaf, who is responsible for creating white walkers, is one of the Children of the Forest. For this look, you will have to add some fake twigs and shrubs and artificial moss to your elaborate hairdo. For the makeup, very heavy contouring is required. Go for shades of grey, liquid latex, and lots of toilet paper for this look. It makes this look gorgeous and terrifying at the same time. Use some grey and green paint with glitter to cover your clothing and arms. Go for iconic bright green contact lenses. To complete the whole look, wrap some fake tree vines and branches around your arms and stick them to the costume. 

Spooky, Terrifying Ghost

This is the easiest costume for any themed party. However, to make it more realistic and terrifying, create this look with makeup instead of a mask. And it does not require you to just put on some white paint on the face either but it certainly goes beyond that. 

To get the creepiest look, you need to create a look with the stretched-out mouth, and to make it eviler, you need to have sunken sockets. There's still one more thing that can truly highlight this get-up, and that is the white contact lenses and make your appearance truly terrifying. 

So there you go, here are some of the best looking makeovers that I am sure you would like to consider. 

Until next time, cheers.
