If you want to go all-out Halloween, but still want to look gorgeous, then this glam zombie look is perfect for you. You’ll need to dig out all your face paints, brushes and latex for this look, but you’ll still need those all-important false lashes to give this look that touch of beauty!

If you want to add an extra-striking touch to this look, then opt for some white contact lenses for that ‘risen from the dead’ appearance.
