Basic Zombie Makeup Tutorial

I WANT PUMPKIN SPICE OR I WANT DEATH…. oh wait….

Making a bit of a play on the “basic girl” fall faves, this tutorial shows you how to pull of a basic zombie makeup without any guts or gore… as long as you don’t count rotting flesh. Also, I really do love fall, PSL, boots, leggings, and top knots… The whole shebang. Doing this zombie is really just a lot of contouring when you think about it so it actually fits right in.

Basic Zombie Makeup Tutorial

Seriously, have I mentioned how much I love doing zombie makeup? If you also love zombies, check out my Zombie category for more posts.

You will need:

  • “dead guy grey/dead flesh” creme makeups by Cinema Secrets by Woochie, which you can find at many Halloween op-ups this time of year. I stock up each year, because this is the BEST Zombie makeup foundation I have found to date and it is very affordable.
  • Contouring and shading of the eyes was done using my Tarte Pallete, but really, any matte powder in black, rust, and dark purple will work.
  • Ben Nye Bruise wheel
  • Stippling sponge

The process:

  1. First, base out your skin in the dead guy grey to remove the “life” color from your skin.
  2. Use a matte black to contour your cheeks, temple, neck, and eyes.
  3. Smoke out your eyes with matte black, the rust, and cover your lids with the dark purple.
  4. Using the stippling sponge, stipple dark purple on the contoured areas, and add a little bit on the flat parts of your face to break up the large areas of grey. Then add a stippled layer of pea-green and mustard yellow.

Pull on some uggs, wrap your hair into a top knot, rock those leggings and grab yourself PSL, and your look is complete.
