    When I click on the “original tutorial” button it doesn’t work, I tried opening it in a new link and your zombie make up tutorial came up.

      Oops, thanks! Fixed it.

    It looked like it was going south for a while there but you pulled it off.

    I feel like you might like this dish my daughter made for our Halloween dinner last night (rice shaped like brains).

    Seriously though, I think it came out great!

    You really got into it once you got going, didn’t you? The motherfucking dirt made the difference.

    That was hilarious.

    I feel like the original tutorial (which is woefully incomplete and HELLO CAN YOU HIT THE ROTATE BUTTON PLSTHX?!) didn’t peel her tp off. Just left it on in all it’s sticky glory and then makeup’d over it. Maybe? IDK, you looked hot anyway.

    I’m confused about the soda pop tab in the original post.

    Your facial decay was far more glorious than that noobs! Also I think she must’ve had some of that super effin cheap tp because of how thin it was…None the less your face looks amazing!

    Actually looked pretty good, think the make up on top is the key. I think the idea was to make the skin look raised since the body bloats when it decays. Either way, great zombie! Happy Halloween!

    It looked great at the concealer stage but the lipstick didn’t really work.
    The eyeshadow stuff did though.

    A tip I learned from drawing; nothing is ever just “white” and I think the same applies for makeup. If you do the eyeshadow thing all over (like with the “dirt”) it will blend better with the other stuff.

    My husband did this on me a few years ago and it looked so realistic that when I posted to Facebook my mom called in a panic thinking I’d been hurt. Oops.

    I think this turned out super bad ass, especially for a first attempt! Makes me not want to be a lazy shit and try it…. maybe next year…

  • Kelly724 November 2, 2013 - 5:13 pm Reply

    Maybe I’ll try this next year. I’ve had much worse things on my face than toilet paper and glue.

    I’ve watched a lot of makeup tutorials in my time, so let me tell you what you’re doing wrong:

    1) You didn’t talk for an hour about the makeup and brushes you used.

    2) You didn’t edit in a lot of gratuitous blending.

    3) You didn’t talk in a high-pitched, squeaky voice.

    Anyway, that’s what you did wrong, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    […] guys were good sports about waiting for the zombie make-up tutorial, which was too late to do you any good for Halloween. Sorry about that. I blame […]

    Kick ass. Next year, you need to do one of those zip off faces. Kick it up a notch. Maybe a Pintester Movement could be all about zombie makeup tests.

    That’s actually pretty damn good for just making shit up!

  • Mrs Box November 14, 2013 - 7:09 am Reply

    The was you said “pretty” is the creepiest thing I’ve heard in ages…
    Also, great makeup!

    I really wish we could have seen your husband’s reaction to this lol. I dressed up as Edward Scissorhands and my husband freaked when I came out of the bathroom. Men are funny like that.

    I think we have the same hair brush.

    You are a rockstar! I am going to be a zombie bride for Halloween and had no idea how to do the makeup. Looks great! Not a fail at all!
