Makeup Halloween zip | How to do it

If you wonder how to make an unzipped zipper Halloween makeup look, you can be inspired just by reading the following instructions step by step.

What do you need to do your makeup?


  • A zipper
  • Spirit Gum or facial glue (it is used to attach the zipper to your skin)
  • Spirit Gum and Remover (to remove the glue from the face)
  • Toilet paper (The thiner it is the better)
  • Red face paint
  • Black eyeliner
  • Fake blood

Let’s see the step by step instructions

1-Start with the zipper

The first thing we have to do is to apply a moisturizer so that the face is ready for everything we are going to apply on top.

Undo the zipper of your choice and you will realize that it’s quite long. You must measure it so that you can place it for example in one of the eyes.

Mark with a black eye pencil where the zipper will be. In doing so, you can do the makeup of the inside of the zipper with paint.

Take the facial glue, put it on the zipper and stick the zipper to the face . Use some tape to finish sticking the zipper.

Once you’ve realized you already have the zipper stuck to your face, remove the tape.

2-Apply foundation

We begin to do the makeup, which means that we have to apply the foundation that we’d normally use for the whole face. In fact, this time you also have to apply it all over the face.

You don’t have to put too much makeup in the unzipped side of the face, but if you want to you can apply some eye shadow.

3-Apply red paint

In the unzipped area we can start to paint with red paint and you can help yourself with a brush.

4-Apply toilet paper

Grab some toilet paper and cut it into small pieces. Then you can glue it with facial glue.

Once you have stuck the paper and you have checked that it stays put, you can start painting again in red, but very carefully.

Also, take the black eyeliner and make a few random lines on the toilet paper . This will help create depth.

You can also add some fake blood with the help of a cotton swab.

5-Apply more fake blood

In fact, for this type of makeup using fake blood is essential. You can put it both inside the wound and around the zipper.

The fake blood is the element that can give you the most realistic ans spooky appearance among all the makeup ideas we are explaining.

At this point you’re done! There are a few extra things you can do, such as drawing dark circles around the other eye or putting more fake blood on the rest of your face.
