Halloween Makeup: Gory Walking Dead Zombie

Hi Bellas,

I hope you’re not sick of Zombie Makeup but I’ve got one more for you!  Recently I hosted a Walking Dead Viewing Party – one of my favorite shows ever!  I was originally going to dress up as one of the characters from the show but I decided to add a zombie twist to it last minute.  Check it out!

Check out the video!

Like I mentioned, I was actually dressing up as the character Michonne – a dread-locked, Catana wheeling character on the show.  I wore a head wrap, leather blazer, swords, cargos and boots.  I was originally going to dress up as the human version of the character, but I can’t turn down a chance to do crazy makeup!  So I decided to go as the Zombie version of Michonne.

In my last video I mentioned that at my Atlanta Makeup Meetup we had a Halloween theme and did a zombie demo.  As you know, the host of the meetup Binders Art has a new makeup department.  I picked up some new fake blood products from a brand called Fleet Street – the same that they use on the Walking Dead.  These products are so realistic and amazing.  I wanted to definitely give it a whirl!

In this look I also used a couple of different materials to get the zombie look including the liquid latex and tissue paper method.  With zombie makeup, many use oatmeal to create a rotting skin texture.  I didn’t have any so I used bread crumbs and rice which I glued on with liquid latex.  I also used gelatin to create texture to my skin and then painted everything with cream makeup and shadow.

The final look!

I hope you guys enjoyed!  Stay tuned for the next tutorial where I’ll be featuring another super popular television show makeup look!
