Halloween is coming! Everyone is scrambling to find the perfect costume and we bet majority of party-goers will turn up as a haunted student, nurse or maid. If you want to wow (or scare) the crowd, try adding some details to enhance your overall look. The best way to do this for beauty junkies? The zipper look of course!
We’ve sourced seven zipper looks, complete with step-by-step tutorials for you to try out; that is if you don’t freak yourself out in the process!
1. The Universe Inside
Make your fellow party-goers dizzy with envy with this galactic look. If you have an extensive range of shimmery eye shadow colours and a good face primer, you will find that you won’t require any additional materials to create this look.

2. Opened Zipper Eye
The classic zipper eye is extremely easy, and at the same time helps you bring emphasis to your eye makeup if that’s your forte!

#3 One-Eye Zipper Look
Differing slightly from the one above, this zipper look encompasses a whole eye, helping it contrast against the other normal eye.

4. Zipper Mouth
If you’re not too keen on having your whole face plastered with paint, try doing this zipper mouth look, as it confines the painting required to the mouth area.

5. Unzipped Zipper Face
The makeup artist used liquid latex in this tutorial, but it is a rather expensive investment that you are unlikely to use again. You can tweak the tutorial by completely omitting the parts using liquid latex, but you wouldn’t achieve the “splitting skin” effect.

6. Exposed Brains Makeup
The makeup artist in this video used a piece of plastic brain, but we doubt that’s easily available everywhere. Try laser-printing a picture of brains as a substitute.

7. Glittery Zipper Face
If you’re not into the whole gory affair, try this colourful glittery look! We foresee it going perfect with a unicorn horn or clown suit.
