A good zombie look is bruised lips. You can do this easily with dark colored lipstick. Apply the lipstick liberally and then blot it with a tissue.
A zombie has lost all of his or her own blood making them extremely pale. You can use foundation or other face make-up that is lighter than your skin to create this effect.
You can make your face splotchy after putting on a foundation. Just apply eye shadow lightly to various places on your face.
Zombies tend to have messy hair… probably because of their lack of sleep. Use some hair products, then bend, twist and flip your hair in some different directions.
To make your zombie look really believable, having pale green fingernails is very common for zombies to grow. The longer the better.
Most zombies have red eyes. You can purchase colored contacts from many department stores. If this isn't an option, you can use red face paint to paint around your eyes to simulate the effect.
Of course, blood is what zombies want, need and eat. And they have lost all table manners so their faces are usually covered with blood, like a kid’s face is covered with chocolate.
