“Pop Art Zombie” makeup by Rockford student, Cailee Siebel

Tricoci University student, Cailee Siebel, recreates her “Pop Art Zombie” makeup creation featured in the October 2015 edition of Peoria Magazine.

Pretty, fun… or scary? It’s all in the stroke of the brush. Cailee Siebel, Deana Close, Rihana Simmons and Stacey Senzig — cosmetology students at the Tricoci University of Beauty Culture in Peoria—have perfected three spooky looks to serve as inspiration for your costume this Halloween.

How to Create it

For this full face-paint look, Siebel starts with a primer base to prevent staining, and follows with a base coat of blue face paint using a make-up sponge to blend for texture. The “pretty” eye is widened with a thick, cat-eye stroke just above the eyelid crease, accented with black mascara. The “black” eye is outlined with eyeliner, filled with dark eyeshadow and smudged for a dull, sunken effect. Bubble-gum pink face paint is applied to the eyebrows and half the lips, then outlined in black. The teeth and peeling skin details are added last, using white and green face paint, also outlined in black. “Character” nails in bubble-gum pink with matching outline details complete the look.
