Makeup - Zombie

I wanted to try out a zombie look on myself and also wanted an excuse to whack out my special effects kit. Liquid latex looks really effective when teamed with layers of cotton pad fluff and more layers of latex, to create the look of broken/ holey/ infected skin. Combine this with a bit of food gelatine that looks like pus for a more gory effect and I think my finalised zombie look turned out well.

To create the grazes, I used scab dark and an eyelash/ eyebrow wand.

It's a simple look, but there were quite a few products that went into creating it...

Products used:
  • Black Kohl eyeliner.
  • Mascara.
  • Kroylan Supracolor 'B' Palette. Colours - White (070) and Purple (082.)
  • Skin Illustrator 'On Set FX' Palette. Colours - Bruise Tone, Blood Tone and Aged Blood.
  • Ben Nye Liquid Latex.
  • Cotton Pads.
  • Scab Dark.
  • Gelatine.
