Michelle Phan’s Walking Dead Zombie Makeup for Halloween: Follow Along the Easy DIY

Beware of the zombie!

YouTube beauty guru Michelle Phan teams up with Us Weekly for a dead-on tutorial to recreate the zombie look from the AMC hit series, The Walking Dead.

First, you’ll need Mehron Fantasy F/X Makeup Tube in Moonlight White, $3.50, a sponge, tissue paper, cotton balls, and EM Cosmetics Shade Play concealer color mixing palette, $28.

To get started, Phan recommends applying a sheer coat of white face paint on the face and neck with a sponge.

To get the base for those bloody wounds, dip the sponge in Brand X Liquid Latex ($6 for 1 ounce) along the cheek and the collarbone to prep.


Next, place jagged strips of tissue paper and chunks of cotton balls over the wet latex. Apply foundation over the wounds using the Em Cosmetics palette

Watch the video to get the whole look step-by-step. For more of Michelle Phan’s spooky Halloween makeup tutorials — including the True Blood vampire and American Horror Story's demon — click here.
