Quick & Easy 5 Minute Dead Makeup Tutorial

By  |  24 Comments

So I know last week I told you guys I didn’t want to do Halloween tutorials.. I guess I meant a lot of in-depth crazy ones, like Josh and Angie do. To me, they are the masters of CRAZY Halloween tutorials, so I’ll leave that to them!

I like the idea of Halloween for sure, but I’ve never found myself to get super into it like some people. I’m more likely to just do a quick Halloween inspired makeup look and go, then spend time finding a costume and crazy makeup and the like. sooo, I will do some easy and cute Halloween tutorials for you guys :)

This week is probably the easiest and quickest way to get a pretty realistic dead look. I didn’t want to go over the top because it’s supposed to be like, almost dead, or not dead for too long, i guess. haha :)



The main thing about this look is you want everything to be matte. You can use cream products like I did (Ben Nye Contour Palette) Or you can use powders, it really doesn’t matter, as long as it’s matte. Dead people don’t normally shimmer and sparkle (Sorry, Edward!)

    you look nasty. i love it.

    but are you sure you can use lip-liner on your waterline? isn’t that going to be bad for your eyes?

      i think it really boils down to if you have a sensitivity to red dyes. I don’t, so its fine for me

    So I know you dont like doing a lot of halloween looks but I have a great suggestion. Why not do a tutorial on a female version of buzz lightyear from toy story. I saw a Barbie doll in the toy store called Barbie loves Buzz where she wear a buzz light year shirt and stuff. Anyways I thought it was a great costume ideal. Love your Videos.

    I bet Edward’s plenty disappointed! :) You look greattt. This looks easy enough to pull off. I love Josh’s tutorials but I know I can barely draw stick figures on my face let alone make myself look like a plunger or something else realistic.

    What was the white cream product you used? Was it Kryolan or something like that? The stuff you put on your lips?

    Whoah. You really do have that dead pallor down pat.

    I have a suggestion for a Halloween look I’d love to learn how to do- Cleopatra eyes.

    this is really good but i figured out what’s missing. if you really want it to look dead-gross, your lips should have a blue tinge. white doesn’t look totally right.
