Small day o de dead
No Bunnies were hurt in the making of this tutorial

Still not feeling well, decided to paint myself how i felt! Like warmed up death!
If you have any questions at all, please let me know. This is really easy, looks a little complex, but not really. The hardest part about face painting, other then the ability make things look similar is the amount of water on your brush.... this is key to everything.

Products used:
Snazaroo Red
" Black
Ben Nye Lime Green Aqua cake
" " Cloud White




  1. Step 1 1

    make sure your face is clean. grab your sponge, dip it in water wring out and dab in lime green paint a few times. Then dab in your white on the same sponge. Tap on the back of your hand to make sure color is how you want it. Cover your face, I did a light coat on mine. I really do not like the stuff on my face, odd right? Let dry completely, should only take a moment or two. Ignore the red spot, I was only gonna do a wound tut, but I am bored and decided to go a little farther.

  2. Step 2 2

    rinse your sponge out, wring it out and dab in your black paint. tap once again on the back of your hand. Sponge all around your eyes, lids and all, it will blend in with the green, this is supposed to happen, you want to look dead, not like you have a black eye.

  3. Step 3 3

    get your small rounded flat paint brush, and your red paint. Wet your brush, brush off some of the excess water. Now load up your brush with red paint and put red spots where you want a wound. More or less, there is no right or wrong when you are a zombie!

  4. Step 4 4

    Now, get your liner brush. Wet, brush off excess and load up with black paint. Go around the edge of the wounds you painted on. It doesn't have to be perfect.

  5. Step 5 5

    ok, make sure your liner brush is rinsed, then wet, brush off excess and load up brush with green, then dip load it up with white, you want your green to be lighter then the green already on your face. go around the outside of the wound you have painted on. this is important in making the wound look realistic or 3d.

  6. Step 6 6

    Round flat brush, wet tip only, get black paint, NOT ALOT. you are going to blend in the black outline in the wound. Do you feel dead yet?

  7. Step 7 7

    ok, you have the wet, brush, dab steps down by now (i hope). Black and white paint mixed, paint your lips, draw faint lines up from your top lip. The blend the green on your face in with the grey you just painted.

  8. Step 8 8

    Draw white lines across the largest wound you have created, in the shape of a )....

  9. Step 9 9

    ok, so at the ends of the white )'s draw black )'s. blend in lightly, you want to still be able to see them. But this wil give the idea that your skin is being pulled taunt from the stitches. Then take your line brush and black paint, draw a thin black line over or next to the white.

  10. Step 10 10

    Sponge around your mouth with red and black paint. As if you have just eaten a brain...

  11. Step 11 11

    add a few blood drips from the eyes with your red, add some eyeliner, and PooF, you are a zombie....

  12. Step 12 12

    Don't you look beautiful? I think you do!!!!
