Top Tips to Make You Look as Realistic as Possible
Halloween is one of the few days in the year when you can have as much fun with your makeup as possible and go all out to look as scary as possible, as well. If you want to make sure you scare everybody with your makeup next time, then you might want to try out a zombie look.
If you decide to do so, then it would be vital to ensure that your zombie makeup makes you look exactly like the zombies that you see in scary movies nowadays. In other words, you have to ensure that you don’t just play things by ear and paint different colors onto your face. If you don’t know what you’re doing, you might just end up looking stupid in front of your family, friends, neighbors and guests.
In order to look scary and realistic as a zombie, it would be highly advisable for you to plan out your makeup in advance. Get a whole makeup kit ready, complete with sponges, makeup brushes and tissue paper – things that you will need to come up with if you want to effectively pull off a terrifying zombie look. You will also need natural flesh-colored latex, which you can buy from any costume store offline or online. Other things that you might want to get your hands on for this would be white cream facial makeup and grease paint makeup.
Now, before you start working on your makeup, you will have to clean your face properly with either facial wash or cleansing milk. Also, make sure you tie your hair back before cleaning your face and putting your makeup on because it can be quite hard to get makeup out of hair, in general.
After you clean your face, it would be time to moisturize it. If your face is particularly oily, you might want to put on some face powder, as well. After that, apply some liquid latex onto your face any other areas near your face that will still be exposed after you put on your zombie costume. Let the latex dry and then take some tissue paper and cover up all of the areas that you put the latex on. Then, apply some more liquid latex and leave it to dry again.
Next, you will have to work on your eyes. This is where you can get as creative as you want by mixing both grey and black eyeshadow together. You can also add some grease paint onto your eyes if you want. Naturally, you will want to make your lips darker, as well. Dark brown lipstick shades usually work quite well for this.
Makeup isn’t the only thing you will need to work on if you want to look like an authentic zombie in the end, though. Think about how zombies would react and act and watch various scary movies to really get a feel of how zombies end up taking over the world. Basically, your goal should be to act and look as scary as possible. Don’t forget to have fun, either!
