Realistic Zombie Makeup

Updated on January 16, 2013

Low cost zombie makeup


Create realistic zombie makeup that is easy to apply,cost pennies and looks like the Professional Hollywood makeup artist. The process outlined here can be achieved with items already on hand. It does require some time, so allot at least one and a half hours.



Items needed:


  1. Non-toxic white glue (Elmer’s)
  2. Eye-Shadow or non-toxic soft pastels in various colors (Black, grey, purple, wine, yellow)
  3. Hairspray
  4. Toothpick



Begin by pulling hair away from face and securing it with a clip or headband. Apply glue on face in large patches. Avoid area around the eyes. Allow glue to dry. Using toothpick, create openings in the dried glue, leaving raised areas and flaps around holes. Use eye-shadow to shade in open wound effect. Pinch some dry areas to create cracks in the glue and shadow those in as well. Repeat process on hands, arms and legs. Use black or dark grey to create sunken eyes and dirt on face and neck. Before removing clips or band, spray hair with hairspray, then begin lifting and spraying hair until wild and messy.



Tips:


Tissue or toilet paper can be placed on dampened skin with a thinned glue mixture to create scarring effect.


Applying petroleum jelly (Vaseline) to areas before applying glue creates an interesting texture.



Removing:


Use lots of warm soapy water. Glue peels relatively easy. Use makeup remover or petroleum jelly to remove shadow around eyes.


Warning:


Drying glue can cause itching and will pull body and facial hair.
