Here are some photos for a Dia de los Muertos look. Dia de los Muertos, or “Day of the Dead”, is traditionally celebrated on the 1st and 2nd of November (sounds about right, who else feels dead after Halloween?). In this tutorial, I’m show you how to paint a sugar skull on your face.
I use a lot face paint in the video; for more information on face paint, be sure to check out this post on making face paint and this one on applying it. Chriselle can help show you how to make a headpiece similar to the one I’m wearing here.
Here are some extra pictures of the finished look:
This look is so intriguing to me because everyone’s sugar skulls can look different. Research some designs for inspiration and get creative with your shapes. Let your artistry shine through and have fun with it!
Tell me how you would decorate yours in the comments below!
