Zombie Makeup Tips: In Full Bloody Color with VIDEO (Part I)

The second annual Zombie Walk Downtown is approaching and we wanted to help you represent well on the journey. It's a chance to do good while looking grotesquely great.

The October 27 walk benefits the Houston Children's Charity, the Houston Humane Society and Dove Key Ranch Wildlife Rehab.

To participate, you'll be asked for a $15 donation, and since you might as well do it in style, here's some makeup help from artist Rick Bongiovanni, who's a master at this stuff.

And now, for the video:
