Halloween Tutorial: Zombie Bride

You might be thinking: Sanne, isn’t it a bit early for Halloween posts? Well, you may be right, but I like to think otherwise. I’ve been planning this year’s Halloween party for a couple of weeks now, and I’ve had so much inspiration for makeup looks and I just couldn’t wait to start. So you’ll just have to deal with it I guess, haha. Anyways, I hope you’re just as excited as I am now, so let’s get into this year’s first Halloween post: an easy, bloody bride makeup tutorial!

We’ll start this zombie bride look with the first couple of easy steps. I started with priming my skin and making my face a bit whiter. I did this by mixing a white face paint with my usual foundation. Then I contoured my face using a red eyeshadow, specifically the one in the MUA Fire Vixen palette (as pictured).

Next step: eyebrows. I just did them the way I normally do them, nothing special there. For concealer I again used the white face paint mixed with foundation.

Then we can start on the eyes. I started by priming and then applying some of the white facepaint thinly over the lid. Just to make it lighter, so it can blend with the rest of my face. To give my eyes a tiny bit more depth I applied a light brown eyeshadow in the crease. For the red eyeliner I used a red lipstick and a thin brush. To make sure it stays in place, I applied the red eyeshadow on top of it.

And now we can get on to the ‘hardest’ part of the makeup look. I blended the red eyeshadow widely under my eyes and then grabbed the thin brush again. With the brush I made zig-zag lines using the red lipstick. And that’s it.

To finish this look I put on some red lipstick and a tiny bit of highlighter, to bring back some dimension to my face. For the ‘scary’ look I just smeared out the lipstick a bit and put a drop of fake blood in the corner of my mouth. The bloody veil headband I got at the Action, which was ultimately the inspiration for this look.

I think this is a really fun and easy look. Just put on a simple white dress, and you’re done for your Halloween party. It’s also pretty cheap, since you don’t need many different makeup products or accessories. I hope you enjoyed this look as well and may have gotten some inspiration for your Halloween look. Definitely let me know what you think of it and if you have any fun ideas for Halloween that I can try. I want to thank you for reading, and I’ll see you next time!
