Step 2. With the black eye pencil write the word Damaged on the forhead, the letter J on the cheek and hash line above the eye.

Step 9. Go back over the face with the white to touch up any areas missed or that were smudged during the makeup application.

Step 10. The small applicator will work great for adding the Porto red to the lips.

Step 11. Carefully shielding the face with your hand, spray the hair with green hairspray. If you over spray onto the face, touch up with the sponge and white makeup.

*If all looks good, set the design with final seal spray.

You now have a complete makeup that will get you locked up in Arkham Asylum for sure.
