The Walking Dead – Happy Halloween! Ripped Flesh, Zombie Makeup



Happy Halloween Everyone! This year, my boyfriend really wanted to be a zombie and by zombie I mean the grossest, bloodiest mess around! I took on the challenge after he found a clip on YouTube showing how to create this open mouth gash on the cheek that he desperately had to have. This is the first time I’ve ever even attempted any sort of theatrical, prosthetic makeup application so I really wasn’t sure how it would turn out. I surprised myself and did a fairly decent job! If you’d like to watch the video it’s by Silvia Marta and posted below. Michelle Phan came out with a very similar one a few days ago which works just as well!
