So a few friends said they would love to know more about how to do ZOMBIE makeup! Im a huge fan of zombies and will be attending the annual Zombie Walk in Toronto this weekend!! I also love horror movies and anything GORY:)

So this it part one because it is just to much to write in one entry.So today i will talk about BLOOD! Which is essential to have when being a zombie!!!

You can make your own blood which i will give you give you some recipes and tell you the store bought one that i just LOVE! I just recently used it at a photo shoot,and it really looked REAL!!!

You can buy this one at most stores for under $5.00  

Now this blood will most likely stain your clothes so use old clothes and apply it at least 24 hours before so its fully dried when you want to wear it and it does not get on everything else.But when applying it to your face do it right before you go out so it looks fresh!! Unless you are going for the dried up look .

But if you would like to make it yourself try one of these recipes-

Simple Fake Blood
  • Clear Corn Syrup
  • Red Food Coloring
  • Milk - Optional
However much fake blood is how much corn syrup you'll need. Pour it into a bowl and mix in some red food coloring. Add some blue if you like. Adding a small amount of milk will make the blood appear darker and thicker.

or this one -

Realistic Recipe
  • 2/3 c. Corn Syrup
  • 1/3 c. Warm Water
  • 5 Tbsp Corn Starch
  • 4 tsp red food coloring
  • 1 Tbsp Powdered Cocoa
  • 2 drops of green or yellow food coloring
Mix the corn starch with the water in a large mixing bowl. Stir in the corn syrup. Add the food coloring slowly, checking for color.

or even one of these -

Cheap 'N' Easy Blood
This is good for spidering:
  • Plain Flour
  • Water
  • Red Food Coloring
  • 1 tsp. of Coffee
Boil the water on the stove, then sieve in the flour, making sure you get ALL of the lumps out. The quantity of ingredients aren't important, it just depends on how much you want. Once you have the flour mixed nicely into the water it should look nice and thick. Next, add the red food coloring.
You will notice that it's a ghastly, bright red colour but don't worry this is why we add the coffee. It is important that when you add the coffee to make sure the mixture is hot, otherwise it wont dissolve, but up until adding the coffee can be done in a ordinary mixing jug or pan.

Palmolive Imitation Blood
You can also make fake blood with Palmolive dish soap, (it doesn't matter how much you put in) it depends on how much blood you want! Add red berry powdered Kool-Aid!

Ok now that we have the blood covered ,in my next blog i will go over how to apply it and how to to the face makeup !!! 

Here is a picture of zombie makeup i did on my awesome boyfriend last year -
This was really easy!! But this year i want to try some more special effects like a knife in the head and more gore!!!! 

STAY TUNED!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
