You’ll Need
foundation (couple shades lighter than your skin color)
brown, black, grey, purple eyeshadow
eyelash glue
facial tissues
tweezers
fake blood
makeup sponge
To Prep
1. Apply a light foundation (lighter than your skin colour) all over your face, 
even on your lips, it will make you look really dead.
2. Mix a dark brown, black, grey and purple eyeshadow and apply 
messily on your eye lids and around your eyes.
3. With the same dark colours contour your face, just like you would do with a bronzer.
4. Also don’t forget to contour your nose and your lips.
 
To Create the Scars:
1. Apply eye lash glue on your cheek.
2. Cut irregularly a piece of tissue and place it on top of the glue.
3. Start layering your scar until it feels thick.
4. Using a pair of tweezers open the tissue in the middle to create the scar
5. Cover the tissue with the same light foundation you used for the rest of 
your face.
6. Take some dark eyeshadow and cover the scar, mainly focusing in the 
cut.
7. Place some fake blood in the cut using a brush.
8. Using a sponge apply some fake blood on the rest of your face, 
wherever you see fit.




Broken Nails


Want to get REALLY specific? Watch Klaire De Lys’ tutorial below to find out how to get that gross broken nail effect without actually breaking your nail!





Clothing


Forget overly-pricy zombie outfits at costume shops; the BEST way to DRESS like a walker lies in a thrift shop. All you have to do is spray some fake blood on an old sweater/shirt/dress/whatever and you’re finished!

    If your looking to do something quick and affordable for cuts and broken flesh, make sure to get some fake skin putty. I used it for my zombie Governor cosplay to make the bullet hole in his head and it worked brilliantly!

    You mean you need someone to hook your costume up because you can’t reach? 🙂
