Last week on ZOMBeauty, we helped Karen learn to dress right for her level of decay.  This week, we are going to take on a tougher case.

Our second zombie is Chloe.

Chloe has been undead for a little over three months now.  She lives in Georgia, so the heat and humidity have certainly taken their toll on her skin and facial features, causing them to rapidly decay in a most unattractive way.  But ZOMBeauty is here to help!  With the right makeup and accessories, we can get Chloe looking and feeling like someone who has only been dead one month!

Hi Chloe, how are you today?  What?   I’m sorry, I forgot that your tongue is rotted out.  Haha, I bet you have some killer morning breath, am I right?  Seriously though, do you know sign language?  Because right now you’re just making incomprehensible noise.  You’re missing fingers too?  Okay, how about you just nod for yes and shake your head for no and if you’re really having a problem, make a loud noise and flail your arms.  You don’t really need to talk a lot, just try to look pretty.

Okay… so where to begin?  First of all, you smell like a carcass.  I would normally recommend a nice, summery scent like Clinique Happy to cover up the stench of decay, but realistically, you’ll probably need a combination of Axe spray, Febreze and bleach.

Now let’s talk about your hair.  Your hair is a mess, Chloe.  Do you even use conditioner?  Obviously, our first task is going to be to take care of those split ends!  After that, we’ll apply a smoothing serum to get your hair to not look quite so… zombie-like.

While we’re on the subject of your hair, let’s talk about highlights.  I’m thinking a nice auburn hue.  And, bonus, since you’re dead, you don’t have to deal with re-growth!  Ever.

You’re missing an eye, but that’s no excuse to ignore the one you still have!  I’m going to apply a nice eye shadow and some lengthening mascara to really make it pop.

As far as your skin goes… Chloe, I’m not going to lie – we’re going to need to get creative.  To say that you have poor skin quality would be an understatement.  Your skin is pretty much as bad as skin can get before it stops being skin.  You are right on the cusp of skin and compost.  But we won’t let that stop us.

Body glitter is always a viable solution, so let’s rub some of that on.  See how it’s all sparkly and distracting?  That’s good.  That’s what we want.  This way, people will be focusing on the shiny glitter and not on your greenish, flaky skin.   Along that same line of thought, let’s put a huge, red flower in your hair to call attention away from your face and balance out that empty eye socket.

Are you ready to take a look?  Okay then!

What a transformation!  You look absolutely stunning, Chloe!   During your next massacre, you can shamble down the street with confidence.  Maybe you’ll even get asked out to a dance!
Stay tuned next week for the final episode of ZOMBeauty.
