    Question Zombie Makeup Help

    Hey,

    I'm dressing up as a zombie bride for Halloween this year and I was hoping a few of you talented fellow HF members would give me some pointers on makeup.

    I'm not great at makeup at all. Anyone have any tips on how to do a good, fairly scary zombie face?? I'm thinking I need to invest in some white contact lenses for sure.

    I've also been looking up zombie bride pictures. Wow, some are amazingly done!! What is the best blood to use? Something that I can apply to my skin and clothes that actually stays bloody looking? I bought a jug of fake blood last year and was very unhappy that it dried/changed colour and flaked off midway through the night.
    As I was going up the stair, I saw a man that wasn't there.
    He wasn't there again today...Oh how I wish he'd go away.

    Look at Zombie Zac's profile. His airbrush look is great! It totaly adds depth without the need for appliances.

    We have a few zombie prosthetics that you can order pre-painted. All you need to do is glue it on and put some makeup on your skin around it.

    Does anyone know if Mold Builder Latex can be used directly on your face? I wanted to do some quickie zombie make up for a zombie walk this Friday.

    I'd suggest using liquid latex from a Costume Shop or Halloween Store. Mold Builder Latex may have additives that are not skin-safe.

    If you really want to try it, put some on your inner elbow and let it stay for a day or two to see if there is a reaction.

    Thanx for the tip. No Halloween shops are open around here yet and the event is this Friday. Might have to visit a toy store of the adult kind.

    Thanks for the suggestions everyone.

    As I said I am makeup challenged, a simple mascara girl on 90% of the days is me. Honestly I wouldn't have a clue on how to use liquid latex or any of that type of stuff.

    Any recommendations on the artifical blood? What works (preferably not super-sticky) and stays blood looking into an evening?

    Here is a pic of me & the wife as zombie bride & groom a few years back. Yes, the contacts are a must. For the blood, we used Ben Nye Fresh Scab, it dries and has that "chunky" look, very nice! On the costumes themselves paint is better than fake blood, and you can get a clear fabric glue from a craft store, mix red & a couple drops of blue food coloring in it (and I like to add some coffee grounds in for texture!) and apply it and let it dry. Oh, and get some of the tooth coloring (brown, yellow, or green) for your teeth and fingernails! Really ups the ante!
