Halloween quickies

Classic zipper face makeup tutorial (with kit)

By  | 

The super silly but super fun and simple classic – the zipper face

We’ve had a lot of requests for makeups created with ready made kits. So here’s one with a classic Zipper Face, made from a basic cheapo kit. While we were at it we also decided to create an additional version with the zipper as a choker for that stylish beauty look.

As for the concept of zipper face makeups they are pretty much splitting the Internet in two. You either hate them and think they are cheesy, or you love them and create them yourself. There is a saying going around as well, that you are not a true sfx makeup artist until you have create a zipper face makeup.

You should be able to find a zipper face makeup kit in any party store or well sorted department store. It’s almost as basic as milk, at least around Halloween. You can also buy just a zipper, some skin adhesive and a little red colour and you’re good to go. Add a little fake blood too and your zipper face look will be a complete success.

We dedicate this makeup to Ali Gordon at Somedevil SFX Workshops because we know he will love this 😉

    I feel disgusted when she peeled off the zipper on her neck. Get it from pound land it's cheaper than that can't wait for Halloween 😈👿👹
  2. Thank you soo much for making this video it helped me soo much........ I got a kit for Halloween this year but had no clue on how to do it as there were very little instructions on the back of the packet 😂😂😂

      btw I just took a look at the package, but it doesn't say either way if it is reusable

      Brooke Romero I actually got the exact same kit for a last minute costume to take my niece trick or treating. I'd say you can use the remover to get the spirit gum off of the back of the zipper and reuse it. Unless you really gunk it up with make up I don't see why you couldn't reuse it. I can let you know for sure after halloween

    I know this has nothing to do with the tutorial in this video but I'm going to be Alfred Hitchcock for Halloween this year and I'm still trying to figure out how to pull off a bald spot without having to actually shave my head. (although i would do that if I had no other options)

    she should really do an sfx for the jokers daughter ~ and yes, for those of you who read the comics i knowww that he doesn't necessarily have a biological daughter, just some deranged woman who found his torn off face and wore it ~ but still ~ cool concept ^-^

    Small suggestion to people who doesn't have skin tape; use a regular band-aid instead. It might even add to the look :) PS. Älskar er kanal och alla små-tips och alternativ till annars dyra lösningar (som att använda mjöl istället för puder t ex)! ;)
  44. That intro tho?! hahahahaha lol Amazing!!!!
