Your rating: None
The zombie face design can be made as scary as you want. It’s one of the popular face designs done for Halloween parties and costume parties. You can easily paint this zombie face at home and save yourself some money as well.
What you'll need: 
Green face paint
Black face paint
White face paint
Dark brown face paint
Bowl of water
Face wipes
Clean the face with face wipes.
Use the brush to mix some green, black and brown face paint to mix a muddy green. If it’s too dark add a bit of white face paint to the mixture.
Dip the sponge into the muddy paint mixture. Cover your whole face in the muddy paint mixture, leaving the mouth paint free for now. Make sure you paint up to the hair line, neckline and ears. This will add to the spooky look.
Dip another sponge in black paint. Paint around the eyes in black and blend out the edges. The eyes should have sunken in look. Dip brush in black paint and paint the eyebrows black and thick.
Dip the brush in the black paint and paint the eyebrows black and thick. Make a frown on your face so that you can see frown lines form in the space between your two eyebrows. Use the brush and paint the formed frowns in black. This will create a natural painted frown in between your eyebrows.
Outline in black with the brush the lines in between the base of your nose and top lip. Make your face smile without showing your teeth. Use the sponge with black paint to paint out your smile line and blend out the edges. This will give you a natural creepy grin to your face.
Use sponge and white paint and dab paint along the bridge of the nose. Outline outside the black painted smile with the sponge and white paint. This will highlight the painted features more.
Paint your mouth dark brown with the face paint and brush.
That’s your zombie face done. You can wear a zombie outfit if you have one.
This is a basic zombie face that you can add to as you see fit.
You can stick fake red wounds to the cheeks or forehead to make it look gruesome.
