ZOMBIE MAKEUP: How-To

 

 

ZOMBIE SKIN

PREP

Apply our Hydra Veil Primer to clean, fresh skin, then buff Skin Base Lift (2-3 shades lighter than the natural skin tone) under the eyes and the high points of the face to perfect and brighten and set with our translucent Loose Powder.

 

ZOMBIE TEXTURE

Using the Illamasqua Buffing Brush, apply the deep green shade, Opera, from the Experimental Artistry Palette all over the face and neck leaving slightly uneven to achieve a textured effect.

 

CONTOUR

Deepen the colour around hollows of the cheeks, jawline, temples and down the nose adding contour using the Blush Up Brush and the teal shade, Dramatist, from the Experimental Artistry Palette.

 

EYES

BLOOD TEARS

Using our Lip Liner in Spell, outline the eyes in a circular shape and fill in with the liner, then use our Powder Eye Shadow in Daemon to set the liner and intensify the colour.

Using the same Lip Liner in Spell, create a dramatic tear-like effect to replicate dripping blood half way down the cheeks.

 

ZOMBIE BROWS

Mix Dramatist Eye Shadow with Sealing Gel to create a liquid formulation and define the brows by creating individual hair strokes using our Angled Eyebrow Brush.

 

LASHES

Tight-line the top and bottom waterlines using Eye Pencil in SOPHIE to prep for False Eyelashes. This zombie look requires your favourite Illamasqua Eyelashes on both the top and bottom lashes for an intense look.

 

FINISHING TOUCHES

LIPS

Apply our Antimatter Lipstick in the shade Rocket to the centre of the lips and press with the finger to blend. Finish off the look by applying our Antimatter Lipstick in Orion to the outer corners of the lips with the Lip Brush for maximum precision, blend towards the centre to create a plumping effect.

CLOWN MAKEUP: How-To

CLOWN SKIN

PREP

Apply Rich Liquid Foundation in White (shade 100) to the face, neck and ears, making sure to cover the natural eyebrows to create a completely white, blank canvas.

Set the foundation with our translucent Loose Powder using the Illamasqua Powder Brush.

 

ROSY CHEEKS

Using the Cheek Brush, apply our Powder Blusher in Nymph to the apples of the cheeks in a circular motion and add a light dusting to the chin.

 

CLOWN CONTOUR

Using the Smoulder Eye Shadow Brush and Obsidian Powder Eye Shadow, create an exaggerated, unconventional contour starting from the outer corner of the lower lash line draw a half moon shape beneath the cheekbones and finish at the corner of the lips to create rounded cheekbones. Blend the edges of the contour slightly using the Eye Shadow Blending Brush.

 

EYES

CUT CREASE

Apply the Powder Eye Shadow in Obsidian in the crease of the eyelid using the Eye Shadow Blending Brush. Add Obsidian to the lower lash line using the Smoulder Eye Shadow Brush and blend downwards to diffuse the colour, making sure to join up the lower lash line with the contour.

 

LASHES

Line the top and bottom waterlines with the Eye Pencil in the shade SOPHIE and add a generous coat of Masquara in Raven to the lashes. Finish the eyes by adding Illamasqua False Eyelashes to the bottom lashes (We recommend the style Captivate).

 

BROWS

Use our Precision Gel Liner in Infinity and our Fine Liner Brush to draw a precise, thin brow line. Starting 2cm above the natural brow, drape the liner downwards towards the temples to add to the overall clown look.

 

FINISHING TOUCHES

LIPS

Using the Lip Brush, apply our Antimatter Lipstick in Eclipse (luminous white) to create a white-out lip to prepare a base for your clown smile.

 

CLOWN SMILE

Draw vertical lines on the lips with the SOPHIE Eye Pencil and blend with the Smoulder Eye Shadow Brush to replicate teeth.

To finish the look, use the Eye Pencil in the shade SOPHIE, line the natural border of the lips and create a pointed cupids bow. Use the liner to create an exaggerated clown-like smile,  elongate the lip shape making sure to blend into the contour with the Eye Shadow Blending Brush.
