Halloween is just around the corner, and MODERN BFF and talented makeup artist Alexander Rivera (better known as @alexfaction on Instagram and YouTube), is in heaven right now because he LOVES creating makeup tutorials.

This season, he's inspired by The Walking Dead, AMC's series about a group of people surviving an attack from the undead.

Here, he uses BH Cosmetics make-up palette, Sigma make-up brushes and paint brushes from Michael's craft store to create a Zombie look perfect for Halloween.

On top of concealer, he uses red, purple and light gray eyeshadow--and shows you how to expertly blend the colors for a seamless hollowed-out appearance. Then he moves onto how to create a lip effect to make the mouth appear dried up and cracked--and how to create a vein-y, "infected" complexion.

The video is one of our favorites--enjoy!
