Zombae looking for Zomboy.
Single, sweet and eighteen years undead. Doesn't have a heart but would be happy to eat yours. Likes O Negative cocktails and spleen slushies. Enjoys Romero comedies but hates The Walking Dead. Searching for a fellow zombie to cuddle in blood and watch Warm Bodies with. Must love a girl with brains.
No blood and gore for the final look. Just some good ol' body paint. And zombies. Because nothing in life is complete without zombies.
It has been a long time since I've done body paint on myself. It's even longer since I wore a wig and contacts, almost a year. I try to avoid contacts for as long as I could, but this look required them. It would feel unfinished without. I proud to say these pair of contacts only took me fifteen minutes to apply! It used to take me an hour and a half.
Mykie from Glam and Gore, and Jordan Hanz inspired me to do my version of a Pop Art zombie! My first pop art zombie but definitely not my last. There is some joy gained from looking like a comic book character ala iZombie. I kept laughing whenever I looked at myself in the mirror. They are so much fun to do even if they are time-consuming. I spent six hours painting everything but I feel it was worth it.
Just ignore the small patch on my trapezius. I missed that spot.
Before I started, I had a clear idea and concept in mind. First, I sketched out the general design with NYX Wonder Pencil in 01 Light and glued my eyebrows down with a gluestick. For makeup, I used Snazaroo Face Paints and Wolfe Art mostly. I applied the base colours then lined it with black face paint or Maybelline Gel Liner in 01 Black. I highlighted the most prominent areas using Urban Decay Electric Palette in Revolt.
For the eyes, I used Urban Decay Original Primer Potion and lined with Essence Long Lasting Kajal Pencil in 01 Black. I knew I would have two different eye looks. The left eye shown would be a black smokey eye to provoke the idea of a hole than an eyeless socket. With Maybelline Gel Liner in 01 Black (again) as a base, I blended it all with Urban Decay Naked Basics in Crave and Electric Palette in Freak.
For the other eye, I used Electric Palette in Jilted and Urban to create a bright purple eye. I thought it looked great against the green. Then used the gel liner to create a thick wing. To finish everything off, I applied E.Asbellah False Eyelashes in Snow White. They are the prettiest, and thickest lashes I own.
With the lips lined with Essence Long Lasting Kajal Pencil in 01 Black, I applied NYX Macaron Lippie in Chambord on the upper lip and NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Amsterdam. I added white face paint on the left corner just to make it more comic book-esque.
Speaking of making things more comic book-esque, adding small details truly finishes the look. By adding small hatch marks to add shadow, it just makes the look more fun and pop art. I also added a few random white and black spots to once again, highlight the comic book feel..
Put on some contacts and a bright wig, then done!
This look was made in collaboration with Kaleidoscope. I had worked with them last year to create some fun. They invited me back to create a quirky and kooky look to advertise their annual event Shocktober! If you're in Brunei, go check out their Instagram here for more information.
There's also a little time lapse of the makeup process here if you'd like to see. Be warned, I don't have any makeup on. I look like a normal girl than a smokin' Zombae.
So what do you think? Would you dress up as a Pop Art Zombie?
P.S Huge thank you to Kaleidoscope for inviting me to do makeup for the photoset, and Sara for lending me her wig!
