Dead Man Walking: A Collection of Zombie Makeup Tutorials

This from my dear friend Eve at The Year of Halloween! 🙂


Darlings, in honor of last night’s premier of The Walking Dead, I thought you might enjoy a few tutorials to create your own zombie look this Halloween.

There are a tremendous number of tricks and techniques out there to create zombie effects. While some require serious expertise and equipment, there are many easy techniques for crafting truly spectacular zombie effects at home, with limited investment in special makeup or paraphernalia.

First up, there is a the very common technique of liquid latex, as shown in this tutorial from Malabar LTD.

This tutorial uses a very specific collection of stage makeup brands, but you can create a similar look using comparable costume store or inexpensive drug store products.  In a pinch, you can substitute Elmer’s Glue thinned with a bit of water for the liquid latex.  This oozy pustule below was created with glue, toilet paper, and inexpensive makeup layered over Kellogg’s Corn Pops.
