Wake the dead this Halloween & become a seriously glam zombie with our easy tutorial

Be the lifeless soul of the party this Halloween with our easy zombie make-up look. Best of all, you only need a few products to leave everyone saying ‘Damn ghoul!’

Let’s face it

Apply a light foundation (or take your normal foundation and add white concealer on top then blend out) to create a deathly pale base. Apply more white foundation if you want to lighten your look even further. Then help define those deathly hollows by contouring with a darker cream contour, blending out, then going over each contour with grey and black eye shadows to create a sunken in look.

All eyes on you

Take a matte black eye shadow and apply all over your eye socket, making sure to buff and blend as you go, and creating a flick at the outer corner of your eye. Help create definition by blending again with taupe/ grey eye shadow. Bring the same shades under your waterline, and create another flick to almost meet the one above. Blend to your desired look – there are no rules!

A little bit of glitz

Dab a small amount of glitter glue/primer on your eye where there’s no eye shadow, and wait for a few seconds for it to become tacky. Then take a glitter of your choice and gently dab on top either with your finger or a small eye shadow brush. Add a sweep of mascara and pop on your favourite lashes to finish.

Life in those lips

The look may be dead but that doesn’t mean you can’t liven up the lips with a muted red look. Fill in your lips with a lip liner pencil, and then add matte liquid lipstick. Wait for this to dry then add a nude gloss to help your pout pop. Gently buff black eye shadow around the corners of your mouth to help define your lip look.
