Halloween is fast approaching and it’s one of my most favourite times of the year, I love the atmosphere and being scared out of my wits. I don’t usually have anywhere I can go for Halloween, however this year Brent and I have a fancy dress party to go to. I can’t wait, we are both dressing up as Zombies because we love The Walking Dead TV show and thought I would share with you how I plan to do the make-up for the both of us.
Take a make-up spatula or any flat sturdy tool and apply the Ben Nye Nose & Scar Wax to the area that you want your cut to be. Flatten out the edges as best as you can to make the area look more realistic.
Optional – You can apply Spirit Gum first to help the wax stay on better. Also, if you are applying to the face, blend a concealer over the top to help the wax blend into the skin.
Using the make-up spatula, drag it along the wax to create a cut, you can do this however you like, I chose to create a cut on the palm of my hand.
Optional – You can apply Liquid Latex to seal the wax.
Spray water or MAC Fix+ onto black face-paint, I used one by Snazaroo and apply this directly onto the “cut.” This will make the cut look deeper and more realistic.
Optional – You can use a black eyeshadow instead of a face-paint.
Pour some theatre blood over the “cut” and dab in using a make-up sponge to blend. I used Snazaroo Special Fx Theatre Blood however it’s stains like crazy so I recommend using a different theatre blood.
And that’s how you create this gory cut. It’s really easy and fun to do. To remove it, I just pushed it off using the make-up spatula and then used soap and water to clean any residue off. If you do try this out, tweet me pictures to @Beauty18Claudia, I’d love to see them! I will be doing more Halloween looks soon so keep your eyes posted!
What are you dressing up as this year?
