HALLOWEEN HOW TO: POP ART ZOMBIE

Hey guysss!

So I posted this look on instagram and reddit last night and asked if  you guys wanted a tutorial...so here it is! Just a fair warning...this tutorial won't be as detailed as normal, and it kind of jumps around a bit.

WHAT I USED  

  • Mehron Paradise Palette in Basic
  • Mehron Paradise Palette in Pastel
  • NYX The Curve Liner  
  • NYX Primal Colors in Hot Black
  • NYX Primal Colors in Hot Pink
  • OCC Lip Tar in Divine  
  • MAC Eyeshadow in Sassy Grass
  • MAC Eyeshadow in Clarity
  • MAC Eyeshadow in Deep Truth

ALRIGHT LET'S DO THE DAMN THING. 

I USED: Mehron Paradise Palette in Pastel

Using a foundation brush or sponge, completely cover any skin that will be showing through your costume. Note that I did not paint my ears. I should have. But I am a damn fool and that's the only excuse I'll offer. You may want to use a barrier cream first so this doesn't stain your skin.

I USED: Mehron Paradise Palette in Basic + NYX Primal Colors in Hot Black

Outline the nasal cavity with black body paint and a thin brush. If you need reference for shape beyond this, google "human skull". Fill in the shape with black body paint, and cover with a small brush and black powder.

I USED: Mehron Paradise Palette in Basic 

Outline the shape of your eye socket with black body paint. I made this shape a little different because I do what I want and that's the reality of the situation. Fill in your shape with black body paint!  

 

I USED: NYX Primal Colors and MAC Carbon

Cover the entire area with a black eyeshadow to keep the paint from creasing. Blend the edges as well for a more "hollow" effect.  

I USED: MAC Sassy Grass mixed with MAC Clarity

Cool ear Sam. CONTOUR ERRYWHERE! Focus a lot on the cheekbones, temples, and collar bones for a sunken, skin and bones look.

Outline your "mouth tear" shape. Starting at the center of the lip with a thin brush, just draw out thinly whatever kind of shape you want.

I don't even know how to describe this step. I kind of jumped right along here. Basically...do this.

Using a thin brush, outline the rest of the teeth and add small detail to the green "flesh".  

I USED: Mehron Paradise Palette in Basic

Using a thin brush, paint the teeth in white.  

I USED: NYX The Curve Liner 

Line your top lid using liquid liner, dragging it out to a point. Line just above your crease, connecting at the tip of your winged liner.

Using an angled brush, fill your brows in with a pink water based makeup, and top with a bright pink powder. 

 

I USED: Mehron Palette in Basic

Using an angled brush and black water based makeup with most of the product wiped off, very slowly outline your brows. 

I USED: MAC Sassy Grass, MAC Deep Truth, MAC Clarity

Using a blending brush, blend just above the cut crease and under the lower lashline for a more dramatic effect.

Apply lipstick to the second half of your lips. I also applied a beauty mark. 

I USED: Mehron Palette in Basic Using an angled brush and water based black makeup with most of the product wiped off, slowly outline the lips.

I USED: Mehron Palette in Basic

Using a thin brush and black water based makeup, outline some "tear" spots. You want the edges of the shapes to look...torn. Kind of raggedy. Put these anywhere you see fit! Also, I appear to have put lashes on. I added bottom lashes as well, later on, which I didn't take a picture of.

I USED: Mehron Palette in Pastel 

Fill in the torn skin with green water based makeup and a thin brush. I added dots over top for extra detail. 

I USED: Mehron Palette in Pastel

Using a pink water based makeup, create a cut in the skin.  

I USED: Mehron Palette in Basic

Outline the cut with a thin brush, and add dots on either side of the cut. Connect the dots with thin lines to give the appearance of stitches. Yeahhhh dawg.
