A friend is having a zombie apocalyse wedding on New Year’s Eve and I love costumes, but I don’t feel like putting full on zombie make up on my face because I don’t want to be totally uncomfortable (itchy face, smearing makeup, etc.). Is there a fun way my DH can be dead without being full on zombies? Ideas?

I’d say do dark eye make up and a red lip, then maybe some make-up under your eyes and shadowing under the cheekbones? A bit of blood somewhere?
Here are pictures I’d draw inspiration from were I going:
You could just do some smudges like this girl:

Are contacts an option for you? And definitely agree with the messy hair. Get some clothes from the thrift store and cut them up. Rub brown eye shadow on them to make them look dirty.

Can you guys be survivors? Then you can just be dirty, plus you can carry an axe!

I want to go!!!! For your outfit, use red acrylic paint mixed with black paint. It won’t be sticky but it will look old. Tea stain your clothes. For makeup, like PPs said- pale foundation, NYC makes a super pale powder that works great, use dark gray or black eye shadow to enhance your under eyes, temples, chin and cheeks. Follow up with green to look ‘rotting.’ You can tease your hair a bit and then put conditioner in it to messy it up a bit more. Have a blast!!!

@Natto: ME TOO Soooo jelly.
Yeah just some smudges or maybe one or two spots of “blood”. Buy a CHEAPO dress and spray some fake blood on it.
