My Walker, dressed up as a "WALKER."
(You probably only get this if you watch the creepy series the Walking Dead)
My Jack dressed as a VAMPIRE.
This is actually a dress rehearsal for the big day, as we did these looks the other night for a local Halloween carnival thing. I did not include either boys fake blood capsules, because we were hanging around a lot of much younger children in a small group, and I didn't want to totally freak everyone out...just yet. Their baby sister was scared enough.
Here's a simple breakdown for how I did their looks:
1. What I used for both looks were pre packed Vampire and Zombi kits (must need fake teeth included!) like these from Party City. For the zombie skin, I used grey all over, for the vampire skin I used white all over. Make sure to cover the ears with these colors bc flesh peachy ears give it away!! For both of their eyes, I made them darker with a blend of browns and blacks to create a sunken in look. I also added sunken in cheekbones for the vampire by drawing a little bit of black from the ear towards the mouth.
2. I added a little bit of my red matte eye shadow to create a more sunken and sickly look around their eyes. I also used an old slanted makeup brush that I dipped in the red shadow and did quick back and forth strokes on Walkers face to create scrape marks.
3. We will also be attempting the latex on my baby zombie to create flaking skin, so wish me luck. This will really test my makeup artist skills!!
4. For hair, we spiked up Walker's and added lots of hairspray to make it look dirty, and for the vampire we will be adding lots of water and slicking straight back (his hair creeped back up throughout the night so I think we need to get some major gel for tomorrow!). For vampires, you have to add a small downward V in the center of the forehead with black makeup to create that widows peak.
What do you think of my little monsters makeup??
Do you like wearing dramatic makeup for Halloween or are easy masks the way to go?
