How to Add Wounds to Special FX Zombie Makeup

Learn how to add wounds to zombie makeup from makeup artist Ciara Rose Griffin in this Howcast special effects makeup tutorial.


Now I'm going to add a little KY jelly to these holes that we ripped in the makeup just to make them look like they're oozing. So, I have the KY, and I'm using a concealer brush. You can use your finger or Q-tips if you prefer. I'm just going to fill those so that they're seeping, pussing, disgusting wounds. All right.

For the very last step we're going to add some dry blood around the mouth and then some chocolate blood sauce inside the mouth. First, I'm going to smear just a little bit of a red base around the mouth. Then, I'm going to add the thick blood from Ben Nye.

Now, this is a chocolate blood that I made with chocolate sauce and food coloring. I'm going to have you put this in your mouth, swish it around, and just let it drip down your face. Just disgusting. Yeah, and we'll just smear.

And there you have your homemade, easy Halloween zombie.
