For this Zombie look, you will need a bold cap for full effect regarless of your natural hair length, so you can add fake scars and draw on bloodied veins all over, with the bruising adding a bit of dimension. This creator also added some special fx teeth, so the mouth area looks lips-less and with more teeth your mouth naturally could fit in. The more the spookier.
3 – Face de Muertos
Much like the Dia de Muertos masks, this look is a bit more colourful and animated suitable for everyone wanting to do something fun, spookie but still cute. You will need a lot of pink face paint and a opaque black around the eyes.

4 – Muscle-Mxn:
This look features a red tinge to the face which represents exposed muscle. It’s the my-skin-ripped-off-no-glow glow. Then go in with some yellow for the teeth drawn on the lips and around the skin to strip away any health and life out of your natural skin tone. Eerie…
