Zombie Makeup

Everyone love zombie makeup now…. right?? I do!
There’s so many different way to make a zombie, and this is one more.. but I’ll give you insight in products and how to use them. At the end, I’d love to get your feedback!
To begin, I like to prep my model with contact lens, they always give any zombie look the perfect touch!

Next is all the “scars, bite marks, deteriorating” To create the angry eyebrows I used a foam latex prosthetic that I bought at The Silly Farm . I used Prosaid which is used to glue prosthetic to skin, then I went on to create the scars and deteriorating skin with 3rd degree… a 2 part silicone product that you mold and have ten minutes to play with.  On the neck, that’s where she was bitten to become a “zombie” I used oatmeal and latex, I mixed them together to create this look! On the legs I applied latex waited for it to dry and started making holes.

Then I took the most pale color from dinair and airbrushed her whole body…. to give it that dead look you know! LOL!

Next I took my Mehron Bruise wheel and added dead bruised coloring around every wound and cut! I also used black cream to give the illusion of depth.

Next I used my new favorite Mehron tooth fx and used the red and black to give a decaying FX to the teeth!

Isn’t she lovely?!?!?!?!

I like doing my blood splatter outside… and with good reasons.. “my boss hate when the whole school looks like a massacre happened lol” I use Mehron Stage Blood to drip in the areas that i wanted, then watered it down and used it for splatter everywhere else!
and Viola!

Halloween is around the corner and that can only mean one thing…. it’s makeup time!!
For my first look i decided to recreate this amazing reptile look that i found on Makeupbya20something .
To recreate the look I used several products and I know you all want to know so here is a list of the products I used and ones that you could use:
Contact lenses: I bought mine in a hair store! Sorry! but there are many website where you can find them.
Body Lotion or Vaseline : I used Lancomes Nutrix Royal, but any cream would do! 
Face and Body Wax: I used Cinema Secret but you can use any molding wax (they come in some Halloween makeup kits)
Liquid Latex: I used Spirits Halloweens own latex.. but againg you can find it anywhere now.
Makeup sponge: I used a pack from cvs
Face Paint: I used Mehron AQ. you can use any cream makeup and get the same effect. $1 at Walmart
Black and Green Shimmer Eyeshadow: I used Matte Elite but they are discontinued. Any Eye shadow will do. 
Castor Seal (optional): Mehron caster seal. I used this to make it easier, but it’s not necessary.
Powder: I used Ben Nye Banana powder, but any powder will do.
Foundation:  I used My own brand (Beauty By Shaq Cosmetics Coming soon. ) Any foundation with good coverage will do.
Bruise Wheel: I used Mehron bruise wheel. but you can also use the cream makeup instead.
Blood: I’m Using Thick Blood from Graftobian and Stage Blood from Mehron, you can use Gel blood and 
vampire blood and they will do the same.
Fangs: I bought them at walmart
Eyeliner: Ofra Cosmetics (best eyeliner ever) any black eyeliner will do.
The rest is : Lipstick, and eyelashes and you can use your choice.
