This past weekend I went to a Halloween party my friend was having as a zombie of sorts. I was having a hard time deciding what to be and my husband told me he wanted me to be something dead, so off I went to "die." Surprisingly it only took me about 20-25 minutes with the makeup and then maybe another 25 minutes with the hair, blood, and costume.
I have never been anything dead or gross for Halloween and other than the typical "80s Barbie" makeup, I have never even done anything so centered on makeup on Halloween either. This was definitely a first for me so I hope you will forgive any little messy mistakes.
With my hair I (obviously) just backcombed it a bunch to make it look crazy. I put it half back so my bangs wouldn't get in my face or in my blood.
The blood was done with a gel textured red food coloring. I was shocked how well it turned out.
I really like these ones where the flash totally washes me out, it makes me look so zombie-like!
