Unhappy While or light grey foundation?

One of the clubs in my city are doing a living dead theme night where you can dress up, I chose to go as a zombie nurse (bit typical I know but I've always wanted to try it) anyway for the make up I need a pale white or grey foundation or face paint, would anyone happen to know a good way to make it or somewhere I can buy some, there's not much time so I can't buy it online nor is there enough time to do really complicated and impressive make up, so I'm just going with something impressive that looks good, also I'm a little strapped for cash so preferably something that isn't too expensive, would be grateful for any help

Try a theatrical makeup store or a store that has Halloween stuff out already.

It's hard to recommend any specific products without knowing what you'll have access too. Something like Ben Nye will be miles better than a cheap Party Store kit, but if you can't order on-line you're stuck with whatever is actually physically local to you.

Actually in the pipes:
- Remaking Ser Loras doublet.
- Luke Skywalker, A New Hope
- Wind Waker starter costume in swim material
Eventually: Paul from Dune, Faramir, Harry Sullivan

Since its coming up soon, most stores have already started stocking Halloween stuff. It may not be the best quality you can find, but there is always ways to make it work. Its its too greasy, dust it with talcum powder to relieve stickiness, and also spray some hairspray over it to keep it from sweating off.

You could even try mixing the halloween store stuff with your normal foundation to give it a better texture.
