Most young children probably don't watch the acclaimed AMC series, The Walking Dead. But still, every Halloween, so many scary little walkers make their way around the block. Zombies are fascinating, and these creepy costumes have been popular with trick-or-treaters since way before Rick woke up from his coma. If you have a little one who wants to look extra gruesome this Halloween, all you have to do is turn to YouTube for some quick and easy zombie makeup tutorials.
With children and 'tweens taking over YouTube, there are a ton of "for kids by kids" makeup and costume tutorial videos. With your permission, and using just a few inexpensive items, your kiddos can DIY their very own zombie look. If your little one is too young to work the makeup alone, there are also easy videos parents can follow to get their kid walker-ready this holiday.
It's important to look for items marked as non-toxic and hypoallergenic whenever you will be using makeup products on a child. Keep in mind that some Halloween makeup (like the kind you buy to make fake scars) is made with latex which many people are allergic to. Most of these tutorial offer kid-friendly alternatives to latex-based products.
