Due to the structure of the show, ten actors had to have zombie makeup in approximately ten minutes, so I had five wonderful assistants to aid in the process of applying the makeup.
The makeup is all Cinema Secrets cream-based makeup: "Dead Guy Grey" base layer / "Forensic Blue-Grey" shadow layer / "Black" eye pattern and lips / "Wolf Brown" stippled to simulate dirt.
The director wanted the zombies to look distinctly Egyptian, and to appear as though they had been entombed for three thousand years, hence my decisions to feature Egyptian eye makeup patterns and the stippled dirt effect.
The cast was very cooperative in the process of putting on the makeup, and it was a pleasure to work with everyone involved in the production.
