Gone are the days where my two sweet boys wanted to be things like super heroes, football players, and Elmo for Halloween.
They have now decided to put moms makeup skills to the test with the un-dead look…
My Walker, dressed up as a “WALKER.” Get it?? It’s what the zombies on the Walking Dead Netflix series are called!
- 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.
- 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.
- 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!!
- For hair, we spiked up Walker’s and added lots of hairspray to make it look dirty. For the little vampire we will be adding lots of water and slicking straight back with gel (his hair creeped back up throughout the night so I think we need to get some MAJOR gel for tomorrow!). For vampires, you should create a small downward V in the center of the forehead with black makeup to create that widows peak. I just used a black eyeliner to create the peak outline then filled in with black eyeshadow.
