I went as a zombie for Halloween, but aside from tearing up an old teeshirt, the only part I can really take credit for was the makeup, so I figured I'd post it over here!  It took about an hour--I used cream costume makeup, white and black, my regular Mary Kay liquid foundation, a mineral powder foundation (several shades too light for me) and setting powder, cornstarch, and a green mineral eyeshadow dusted over the whole thing.  And some fake skin and blood, too.  It was a lot of fun, it took about an hour.




My friend did her makeup at the same time, and used mostly the same things.  Oh, and the nails were just really sloppily applied red nail polish, right around the edges and the cuticle, with most of it removed again.  It looked really neat, but really, nobody noticed, and it was difficult to remove again.

Oh, hey, and to give credit where credit is due, I used the tutorials by this awesome user:  http://www.youtube.com/user/otterpopx14 on youtube.

I love it! The gash on your forehead is great, and the nails are super clever. Bummer that nobody noticed em!

Thanks!  I had another open wound on my jaw line, on the other side, but it fell off between the house and the party.  I just turned it into a bruise.  Zombies are definitely the way to go, for a party where you don't know a whole lot of people!  Since so many people dress as zombies, it's an automatic conversation starter, and you've already got something in common!

Love the gash on the forehead, and for what it's worth, I totally noticed the nails in the first picture. My first thought was "She be fresh from da' grave!!" (said in Haitian, voodoo priestess voice, naturally) Cheesy
