2nd Annual Evansville Zombie Walk – Very Bad Zombie Makeup Tutorial
In time for the 2nd Annual Zombie Walk in Downtown Evansville sponsored by Eville Studios on Sunday – I decided to try my hand at zombie makeup. I solicited my step-daughter Carley as my model. I hoped to give you some tips and tricks but unfortunately my zombie make-up looked more like hunting camo. The last picture is pretty much hysterical! Instagram your zombie makeup at #GBFZombieWalk and tweet to #EvansvilleHalloween! Can’t wait to see if you guys did better than me!
I used the Deluxe Zombie Makeup from Party City.
- The first step was to apply the ‘rotting flesh’ which was a gooey cotton substance. I pulled small pieces off and applied evenly to my beautiful clear-complextioned palate.
- Next, I applied a small layer of baby powder to set the ‘rotting flesh.’
- Then I used my fingers to evenly smear the gray pancake base over her entire face. I left her neck clear but I’d suggest getting that area too.
- I blended black and green around her eyes and cheeks and highlighted with white around the face.
- Finally (and this is where I went wrong), I used the fake blood. I tried to smear it around her mouth but it ended up looking like a beard. I’m sure you will do better with this step!
- Good luck and see you Sunday at 5 PM at 5th and Main! Don’t forget – Instagram #GBFZombieWalk and Twitter #EvansvilleHalloween
