Zombified me

Belated Halloween, kiddies! How was yours? Mine was fantastic and I spent most of it as a zombie.

This was pre-bloody me

All bloodied up

I believe I was the freakiest zombie during the walk

Shabby wanted me to make a tutorial on how to achieve this zombie effect. Well I’ll try.

As my base, I used Dr. Jart Black Label BB Cream to even out my skintone. Then I used Kokuryu, a greenish pancake foundation to make me pale (when applied on skin, it becomes white with light green undertone). Unfortunately, I think Kokuryu has folded up. *shrugs*
