Pop Art Style Zombie - HALLOWEEK DAY 4

Welcome to Day 4 of #BecxHalloweek! I saw this very cool pop art style zombie on @AideenKate’s Instagram and I knew straight away I wanted to recreate it. I thought why not use it for one of my Halloweek looks and tell you all how I did it too!

You’ll Need:
Any eyeshadows you fancy
Black Eyeliner
Green, Yellow, Pink, Black and White face paint

The first thing I did was an outline where I wanted everything to be on my face, using the Revolution Renaissance Flick eyeliner. It helped to give a good guideline for what to do next.

I mixed the green and yellow face paint together, so it had different tones running through it, which helped my face look like it had a bit more dimension to it. I painted the large parts of my skin that I knew needed to be green.

Whilst that was drying, I did the eye which had the largest black circle around it. I did just a regular eye look, with the eyebrow, eyeshadow, liner and mascara. I used pink to match other parts of the face paint that I knew were going to be pink. You can use any kind of colours you want, or you can leave the eye with no makeup if you’d prefer.

When the green face paint had dried, I moved onto the pink. I made the brain area, mouth area and neck area pink as if it was all exposed flesh. I tried to make it as opaque as possible, doing 2-3 layers of it. I also did my other eyebrow pink.

Whilst the pink paint dried, I used black and pink eyeshadows on the eye that had the smallest black circle around it. I added in some white shimmer for a more glam effect, but you can use any colours you fancy. I think yellows and greens would also look good!

When the pinks were dry, I went in with the whites. I used white for the painted-on teeth and the spine area. Again, to make it opaquer, I did 2 or 3 layers. I went back in with my black eyeliner to make sure all the black lines were showing properly, especially if I had accidentally gone over them with paint.

I also used the black eyeliner to create “brain” type markings at the top of my head, and any wrinkles or shading. I then used white to “highlight” any areas around the black, that you can see in the brain and down the collarbone areas. Not forgetting the nose, I used black face paint to create a skeleton type nose, which matched the overall look quite well.

I love how this look turned out, it looks funky and creepy at the same time. It would be a really good look to do for Halloween if you’re not sure what to be but have some face paints lying around at home from previous years!

If you recreate this look, don’t forget to use the hashtag #BecxHalloween so I can see them!

Happy Halloweek Day 4!
