FOTD #4: Halloween in Berlin as a Mexican Sugar Skull

Ok so I'm a few days late ...but I thought I may as well get this post in before everyone starts with the Christmas tutorials!


I'm sure by now you've seen my Evil Clown Makeup tutorial that I did on my boyfriend for Halloween (no? Have a look here!). Buuut I never got round to posting my own Halloween make up! Unfortunately it is not as good because I had to do it in a hotel room in Berlin with only half my make up, had never practiced it before and had no wi-fi to look at other Mexican Sugar Skulls for inspiration. Seeing as I only found out what they were this year and had to work from memory, I think I didn't do too bad a job!

If enough people want a tutorial I'll be happy to post one :)
For now though, here's a few snaps!



It was a simple enough tutorial, white facepaint, black outlines and a few half flowers. I outlined my eyes in glitter and covered my brows with facepaint. I also added cracks on the cheeks to make it a cracked skull.

What do you think?
Have any of you created this look, or something similar?
Leave links below so I can see please!
