Zombie Skull Mask

Here's a quick look at a zombie inspired Halloween mask I wore last week! Hope you guys like it!

1 Apply foundation all over and set with powder. Having a clean and flawless base really aids this makeup so that it doesn't end up looking muddy.
Start by using a white eyeliner to plot out your shape.
Lightly block out the brows using a glue stick or prosaid and brush a concealer over the top.
4 Using a filbert style brush and a grey eye shadow, place your brush down on the skin to create a rounded shape, and flick away to create a natural fade. Do this all the way around the edges in varying sizes and spacings creating a deconstructed scalloped edge.
Use the same grey shadow to shade around the eye area. Coming up high on the outer most corner of the brow, and low under the eye to create a hollowed look.
Use a black face paint to draw small flicks through the scallop shapes around the edges of the mask. Define the top of the eye shape you've created to exaggerate an angry brow, and roughly line the top of the eyes with a small flick.
7 Further define the round shapes of your mask by using a black shadow in the same way... placing the colour down and flicking outward. By using the black shadow after the face paint, it softens the lines but allows them to still peak through for added definition and detail. Use the black shadow to shade the eyelid as well.
8 Line the upper and lower waterlines with a black kohl pencil and hap-hazzardly coat the upper and lower lashes with mascara.
9 For a finishing touch, add some dark/dried blood under the eyes and on the bridge of the nose. Don't be excessive with blood as it is only meant to aid the makeup, not overwhelm it!
10 When I wore this out I added a vampy red lip for lots of sex appeal!
