Walking Dead Zombie Makeup Tutorial
Thanks to shows like AMC’s “The walking dead,” zombies have became the latest trend. I had several requests for a Walking Dead zombie makeup tutorial, so I created a Walking Dead inspired zombie look with an easy to follow step-by-step tutorial. My boyfriend, Brandon, is my muse for this look and I would like to thank him for allowing me to make him gruesomely gorgeous! 🙂
This is my interpretation of a Walking Dead zombie, but when recreating the look you can add your own personal taste. The walking Dead has some super intense zombies, but this an easy to do rendition for beginners.
|1. Apply liquid latex to the back of your prosthetic. Give it a minute to become tacky.|
|2. Apply latex on the section of your skin where you plan on placing it.
Again, give it a minute to become tacky, then go ahead and stick it on.
Latex sticks best to latex so make sure to follow this step carefully!
|3. Apply Vaseline to your fingers, then scoop our a piece of Mehron’s Synwax.
The Vaseline will allow you to mold the wax into any shape. I molded it into to small balls.
|5. Using a think liner brush, apply Sugarpill’s Love+ eyeshadow in squiggly strokes under your eyes.
Ideally, you are trying to create veins. Go ahead and line your water line with this color as well.
|6. Using Sugarpill’s Velocity, use your thin liner brush to create blue veins under the eyes.|
|7. Once your create the veins under the eyes, use the sponge with grey paint
and tap light over the area to make it look more realistic.
|8. Now, apply green paint onto a sea sponge.|
|10. Now, using a stippling sponge, apply red paint on and around your wounds.
This will create the appearance of broken capillaries It will also look like splattered blood.
|Here’s what it should kinda look like.|
|11. Using Bloody Scab, fill the inside of your wounds.|
|For the next step I am using 3-D Gel to make my look extra gross!|
|12. Apply the flesh color on the edges of your prosthetics to blend it into the natural skin. Take your time.|
|I added fake teeth and bloodshot contact lenses to complete the look.
These steps are optional and at your own risk.
So who’s dressing up as a zombie this year????
