This is Halloween: Zombie Make Up Look

So Zombies... where do I even begin? I have a huge fascination/obsession with zombies! I read zombie books/comics/novels, play any and every zombie related computer game and think about The Walking Dead at least 5 times a day. Its pretty weird. 
So naturally I was very excited to turn myself into a Zombie for my Halloween series. Now I didn't wanna go too overboard, with liquid latex and huge gaping holes in my face because I wanted this to be an easy look to recreate.
So all you'll need is some face paint, a bruise wheel (all available from Halloween/Fancy dress shops as it is getting on a bit now!) and if not, improvise with some matte blue, green and purple eyeshadows. Here we go!









This look was ALOT of fun, probably the most fun i've had doing a look. With something like a zombie, you can really have some fun and let your creative side come out as there really is no right or wrong. I played around with all the colours to come up with a variety of different shades. I gave myself dark eyes and prominent bags. I contoured my cheeks using the dark blue in the bruise wheel and also my neck. I gave myself sore looking nostrils and eyes and played around with blood around my mouth. There is no right or wrong, which is the fun part, you just do whatever you want and if you go wrong, it doesn't matter as it all adds to the effect! The Mehron bruise wheel was absolutely amazing, it definitely added to the look and made everything seamless, but if you can't get hold of one of these then I have also done a similar look with the Sleek primer palette shades. 

I have one or two more looks left in this series and I am absolutely gutted about it! This month has gone far too fast!
