Halloween Makeup Tutorial #1: The Living Dead


Photo Credit

Only 26 more days! Oh… Am I the only one counting down to Halloween? I can’t help it – October 31st is probably my favorite day of the year. As a makeup artist, I love that Halloween allows us to use makeup to truly transform into anything. So from now until Halloween, I’ll be creating Halloween makeup tutorials so that you can have plenty of practice time before your Halloween weekend.

The first tutorial I’m doing is for the more adventurous college girl: I call it “The Living Dead” – basically, one half of your face is done up all nice and pretty.. while the other half is a haunting skeleton. The best thing about this look is that you don’t really need to buy a costume – the makeup speaks for itself. Also, the products you need to create the look are super affordable.

If you want to turn yourself into the living dead, watch the video below for instruction:
