Halloween ZIPPER FACE Makeup Tutorial with 3RD DEGREE SCARS Speed-painting Video (Released 5/6/17)

Witte Artistry decided to kick off the weekend with a creepy zipper face makeup tutorial. Kim has always wanted to recreate the classic gore “zipper face” look that is so popular on instagram and other social media. However, she wanted to create the look without using a single zipper! She decided to create the illusion of zippers and the revealed flesh using only makeup!

For this look Kim used Wolfe fx bodypaint and BH cosmetics eyeshadow to create the zippers. Then she created realistic fake keloid scars on her chest using 3rd degree silicone. This is a two part silicone compound that has a 10 minute working time to create the 3D effect. After applying the silicone she used an alcohol activated makeup to color the silicone. Alcohol activated makeup, grease makeup, or creme makeup can be used on silicone  because it will stick to the surface unlike water activated paint.
