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.

Marianne Lohr (@mannie_mak), a freelance artist based in Bethlehem,PA., says "My new client came in to see me because she was never happy with her blonde and how gold/yellow it was. She wanted to be an all over platinum blonde at first, but then had mentioned how she's always wanted to have purple hair. Her dream came true that day." Details here.
