Step 1: Sketch It Out
To start, I used a white eyeliner to sketch out the placement of the Jack-O-Lantern design.
Step 2: Fill With Orange
Then, going over the outline, I used orange to fill in the gaps.
Step 3: Black Features
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
Then, I used a brown CoverGirl eye-shadow to place on a few areas of the pumpkin face for shadow.
Step 7: Yellow Highlight
Then, I used a mix of yellow face paint and eye-shadow to create highlights on the face.
Step 8: Deepen Shadows
Then, I went back into my black to use to deepen the shadowing on the pumpkin lines.
Step 9: Finish Off
Finally, I finished off with any more highlighting and shadowing, and added a few dots on a few areas to make the face look a lot more realistic.
Step 10: Pumpkin Face
Now, get ready to ward off those evil spirits with this Jack O Lantern face paint!
