Shot out eye sfx makeup tutorial

By  | 

Just get that shot out eye look in place to flirt with your inner walking dead fan.

In this episode we take rather simple approach to a look that has been made popular thanks to the epic zombie series The Walking Dead, as Carl Grimes happens to get a shot out eye. The effect itself is simple and can be achieved with many different methods. This one is pretty straight forward and doesn’t require too much supplies.

It’s important to always be very careful when you create special effect makeups over, or close to, your eye. So be sure to take it easy and apply everything in a calm and controlled manor. A shot out eye look like this is also perfect if you want to complete a zombie look or just look plain nasty at that costume party.

If you want to take your shot out eye to the next level you might want to consider our fake eye tutorial. In that episode you’ll learn how to create a realistic looking fake eye that you can keep handy for those extra gory moments. Be sure to check it out!

    Could you use painters tape instead of skin tape?

    I assume this would work for a "eyes jabbed out" look too?

    Hey, great work as always :) can I apply the liquid latex with flour directly on my skin(eye) or does it takes too long to drawn?

      You could also coat your eyelashes with Vaseline beforehand so the skin tape doesn't adhere to them.

    But what if some of the tape comes off and the fake blood gets in your eye?

      +ellimacs sfx makeup Hey - quick question. Instead of tape, I feel like that'd be extremely uncomfortable for me, could I make a layer of tissue held down by latex to block my eye? Will this affect the result at all?

    If ANY SFX artists use silicone, make sure to mix a bit of pinks, reds, and all that for skin into the silicone.
