To start, I used a white eyeliner to sketch out the placement of the Jack-O-Lantern design.

Then, I went into my black for the features like the eyes, the jagged mouth, and the semi-triangle nose.

Step 4: Pumpkin Lines

Then, using a burnt red from The Walking Dead palette, I made pumpkin lines going down the face.

Step 5: Black Shadow

Then, I used a black eye-shadow (Wet N Wild Color Icon Shadow in Black Panther) to smudge a bit into the eyes and mouth.

Step 6: Brown Shadow
