Hi gorgeous ladies! I am SUPER excited to share with you this beautiful look on how to tranform your face into a sugar skull for Halloween! 🎃🔪👻 I’ve been thinking about doing this for a while but i have been terribly busy with work, but i finally got a couple hours to myself so i took my oppurtunity to do another Halloween makeup look for you all. Just a reminder to ENTER my OCT GIVEAWAY! Open to everyone U.S. & International! 💄💋❤️ ENTER HERE! Now, let’s get started on the look!
This is what i came up with..
I had so much fun creating and really personalizing this look, and i think you all will too! The best part is that the colors and design is pretty much completely up to you, besides the staples like: the nose, the smile, the eyes. I added a traditional spider web to my forehead, some pretty rhinestone embellishments in certain areas of my face, the flower to my chin etc..
Here’s what was used!
So here i have my usual MALLY shadow base/primer, some hydrating face primer, DUO eyelash glue for my falsies and face embellishments, my usual foundation & concealer and some halloween makeup kits (an injury stackable i used the black for intense shadowing, and a day of the dead halloween kit) I honestly knew i was taking a gamble with the color set that came with the Day Of The Dead kit, they didn’t look like they were going to be nearly as pigmented as they should and they WEREN’T. So, i ended up using a plain ole’ eyeshadow palette, that happened to be very very cheap ($1.50 USD) but extremely good quality as you can see! “Waterworld” L.A. Colors. I applied my MALLY base shadow everywhere you see shadow around my eyes, and just used liquid foundation for the other parts of my face that had eyeshadow on them to help it stick really well. 🙌 But i DID end up using the sponge to sharpen lines and the eyeliner pencil the Sugar Skull kit came with. 👍
The key to this sugar skull look is the OMBRE & blending effect, a.k.a transitional shades of one color from dark to very light. It really made this look complete & pulled it together when i went in and really darkened the shadow areas and brightened the highlight areas. 🌺 Be very thorough when blending your colors out and don’t be afraid to add some black to darken things up or white/vice versa, it will give this look depth. If only it were Halloween TODAY haha, i am really happy with how this turned out. So: if you have a nice glide-on sharp black eyeliner pencil, bright eyeshadow palette/choices, some eyeshadow brushes, an injury kit with a true black shade and patience, you can transform yourself into a sweet sugar skull girl! 🍭💀
I hope this will inspire some of you to go ahead and try their own take of this! If you do i would LOVE to see your creations!!!😉 Thanks so much for reading hope you girls enjoyed! Please leave thoughts & comments for me
