Zombie make-ups in a pinch!

Homemade make-up recipe:

4 tsp cornstarch
2 tsp water
2 tsp cold cream
paste food coloring

Mix cornstarch, water and cold cream together. Divide mixture into separate cups for multiple colors. Stir in paste food colors of your choice. These colors will wash off easily and leave the skin feeling soft!

Homemade blood recipes:

16 oz. white corn syrup
1 oz. red food coloring
1 oz. liquid dish soap
1 oz. water
A drop of blue food coloring

Mix all ingredients together. Omit dish soap if you prefer "edible blood." Adding a little condensed milk makes it less transparent and more realistic. This blood is extremely sticky and can stain skin and clothes. Before you apply it to skin, rub on some cold cream.

Or try blue liquid laundry starch with a little red food coloring added. This concoction looks real and it dries to a convincing consistency.

For blood splatter, use a spray bottle to apply a mixture of cocoa and water with red food coloring.

Have fun, zombies!
