Well I"'ve decided on a zombie costume for this year. I don't want to spend a lot on make up. Have you used any of the dept store stuff?
Agree with everything here. Definitely set with powder though, helps a lot and will take away some of the shine if there is any. I find using a makeup sponge helps blend the white on well.cream or greese make up works fine since really u just want to rub it in your skin to make yourself deathly pale. Faint black/blue veins lightly painted on after than make the skin look really dead. I do recommend buying an injury-stack and using that for bruised eyes/ around gashes/injuries etc, but grab some red eyeliner first and do a coat on your lower lids for a REALLY dead look. lightly cover the whole thing in translucent powder, I actually used baby powder and it was fine. Just make sure you powder BEFORE you put your costume on unless you want white all over.
