A General Guide to Zombie Makeup

Well, you must have been confused as to how to turn yourself into one of the above-mentioned characters using what you have at home. Worry not; follow these simple steps to transform into a super scary zombie.

You do not need some fancy makeup items for the zombie look but some simple makeup that you use in routines. You will require some face moisturiser, face paint, eye shadow palette, eyeliners, blind contact lenses, food colouring, petroleum jelly or hair oil, and liquid latex.

Use eyeshades in browns and nudes to dirty up the shirts. Add some red food colouring to give bloodstains on the shirt and body. Coming to the face makeup, first of all use the same black, brown, and burgundy eyeshades from the eye shadow palette that you used on the t-shirt, and work this into different crevices on your face, neckline, and shoulder to give yourself a half-dead look. Incorporate some deep purple and green shades around your eyes to show bruises and a light grey shade on the lips.

Apply 2 to 3 layers of liquid latex around the mouth area, forehead, neck, and shoulders to give realistic zombie wounds. Use brown and burgundy eyeshades to give a deepened effect to the wounds. Pour some hair oil to make them sticky or look unwashed since ages, and add some gel food colouring or fake blood to fill up the wounds. Ta-da you are good to go!
