Cartoon Glitter Zombie Halloween Makeup Tutorial

Hi Guys,

For my third and final Halloween this year, I had to break out the colour. I love these Cartoon Zombie looks as you can literally just go to town with lots of fun bright shades and make it your own. So even though I've gone for more of a purple theme, the world is your oyster and you can easily mix it up a bit.
  I also knew I wanted glitter, so I must admit I kinda just went with it for this look. But sometimes just having a bit of an experiment and play around creates some of your favourite looks. But mainly my  inspiration has come from the fantastic cartoon zombie make ups I've seen over the years, if you haven't seen them, you need to have a snoop. There's some absolutely brilliant ones out there. 
 To begin with I started off with a good layer of Baby Blue Snazaroo Face Paint. You could also mix a pigment with a white foundation, that would give you a more even finish and leave your skin feeling a bit more moisturised too. However I went for the face paint, just be careful however as they do tend to go patchy sadly.

I also used the Illamasqua Colouring Pencil in S.O.P.H.I.E to create an outline for my brain, I didn't colour this area blue so I could get a truer colour too. I then filled in the area with Illamasqua Skin Base in White and patted Sugarpill Dollipop Shadow over the top. This really makes the colour stand out. Finishing off the brain with the added squiggly details with S.O.P.H.I.E again.

As well as taking S.O.P.H.I.E through the brow and around the mouth, as an outline for later on.
However I did also fill in the brows with Illamasqua Powder Shadow in Obsidian too, just so there were no gaps. 
 For the eyes I used my trusty base of MAC Paint Pot in Painterly, and then dusted Illamasqua's White Blusher over the top. Followed by Illamasqua Can Can through the crease of the eye lightly, but also Illamasqua Inception to deepen it slightly. Over the whole lid of the eye, I pressed MAC Vanilla Pigment, to give a subtle shimmer and really contrast with the purple tones. Finally I finished the eye off with Illamasqua Obsidian Powder Shadow as a liner and Can Can and Inception ran under the lower lash line too. As well as a good coat of the Illamasqua Masquara in Gain. 
The contour is pretty simple, it basically consists of two Sugarpill Powder Shadows in After Party and Velocity. To give some depth and then a thin line of Illamasqua Gel Liner, for the definition, then you've got Zombie Cartoon cheekbones! 
To add some little finishing touches to the final look, I also used the S.O.P.H.I.E pencil to dot some pretty simple scars across the face. Mainly just where there isn't a lot going on, it really adds and finishes the final look off.

Then finally for the glitter tears, I used the Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Liner in Distortion, to draw on a rough shape. Then outlining it again with S.O.P.H.I.E, but adding more glitter to really fill in the gaps. You could press a loose glitter on top to make it extra sparkly, as this certain shade of glitter reflects under the light but isn't overly glitter either. 
 For the mouth, I followed the same kind of steps as I did with the brains, a base of White Skin Base. Then outlining the teeth with S.O.P.H.I.E filling them in with a layer of Intrigue Blusher from Illamasqua to keep it set in place. Then filling in any of the white outside the teeth and inside the outline, withSugapill Dollipop.

Then with a coat of the Illamasqua Matte Lip Liquid in Exoskeleton  for the other side. 
Happy Halloweem!
