HALLOWEEN: Airbrush Zombie Make-Up

Alison Alhamed | October 31, 2013 | 8:45 AM

Chicago-based make-up artist Peter Hudgins loves Halloween--and, frankly, any excuse that gives him the opportunity to express his make-up artistry skills. That's why October is the month for him to SHINE through working backstage in haunted houses and creating costume designs that TERRIFY.

We spotted this Zombie make-up he posted on Facebook and when we shared it, many of you asked about what products he used to create the look.

Peter, who is also a tattoo artist, jewelry maker, sculptor, actor and freelance artist, says the Mehron liquid make-up base was applied with a Paasche "talon" airbrush. The purple and black Mehron liquid make-up was applied with a Badger "anthem" airbrush. Then, the black spatter and grime was applied using a toothbrush and the detail work was done with a thin pinstripe-style paint brush.
