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!

      LlamaKing626 you could use regular tape by stick two pieces of the sticky sides together leaving a little bit of the edges to attach Not on your eye or lashes

    Could you use painters tape instead of skin tape?
    • rawryTHEaguacate

      2 years ago

      She_ Knives though...it might irritate your eye so be careful and make sure to have eye drops with you after you take it off!
    • rawryTHEaguacate

      2 years ago

      She_ Knives you could! I would just stick two pieces of the sticky side together leaving a bit left on the corners so that way when you apply it to your eye it won't tear off your lashes

    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?
    • rawryTHEaguacate

      2 years ago

      Larry mogelzahn you could do that! It would make it much more messier which is good especially if the eye is shot it. It would take slightly longer to dry though

    Can you use any other kind of tape if you don't have skin tape? Xx

      2 years ago

      STILINSKI SKWAD painters tape or scotch tape but be careful. Coat your lashes in Vaseline first then take two pieces of the tape and stick the sticky side together leaving a bit uncovered to actually apply to your skin
