To paint the face so that it resembles a zombie, use gray and green makeup around the cheekbones and chin, white makeup over the entire face, black makeup around the eyes and red and black makeup around the lips. For an even more authentic zombie look, fake flesh can be applied to the face to resemble peeling or decaying skin.
First, apply a thin layer of white makeup over the entire face. Then, use gray and green makeup underneath the cheekbones to give the face a dead appearance. Gray and green makeup can also be used around the chin and jaw bones. Use a black makeup stick to completely outline both eyes. For a dramatic appearance, the black makeup can be extended up to the eyebrow. Use the black makeup stick to outline the lips. Apply red lipstick or makeup to the center of the lips to give them a bloody appearance.
