In my previous post I mentioned that I would be doing two Halloween tutorials for Shape.com. I already shared GoldieSwan and now I present ZombieStarling. I wanted to do an easy Zombie look using products that you could find anywhere. No prosthetics needed. I also learned an amazing Zombie Hair trick from the mega talented Sokolum79. She used conditioner in her hair to make it look like dirty well lived in hair. I highly recommend her channel and you can find it here
Now onto products used:
I paled out my face using grease paints. I bought a stack of four from Party City and supplemented the rest from the Makeup Forever Flash Palette.
I then set my face using Ben Nye's Neutral Set Powder. Any translucent powder will work.
For the open wounds I used eyelash glue. Liquid latex would also work. And then filled them in with red and black grease paints.
To finish off the look I mixed up a bit of fake blood using corn syrup and food coloring. This got extremely sticky and dripped all over my shirt. I think it really added to the look though.
For my costume I cut up an old t-shirt and sprinkled baby powder all over. I had a total blast filming this one... BRAINS!
