Halloween: Sugar Skull

I've been really enjoying being creative lately, I'm going to be so sad once Halloween is over! I love sugar skull looks (or anything sugar skull), so I was really excited to try this. I wanted to do a 'half and half' look so if I was going to be going out with this make up on I wouldn't be completely covered. It felt quite alter ego-ish and fun! 

To create this look I just used my average make up I have lying around, so you don't need to buy expensive or particular products to do looks like this. I started with my normal make up on, I'm naturally pale anyway so it didn't take much to make the 'sugar skull' side paler. I first drew around my eye for the shape I wanted the black area to be, I just used my +Lord & Berry Kohl eye liner. I then chose the colour for the middle, I chose a dusty pink colour but any bright colour will do. And then blended some black eye shadow and the eye liner together to fill the area.

I used the +Makeup Academy (MUA) white eye liner to colour in my lips to match my skin tone (and to make them a little more grey). Again I used the Kohl to draw all the swirl details and mouth area on. When looking at sugar skulls they are often covered in flowers, cobwebs, swirls, dots and bright colours, so it is fun to incorporate it all how you want. I used a black eye shadow under my cheekbones to create a 'skull' affect, which I blended further down the create a light grey colour too.

And last of all I added some +eyeLure Boutique lashes on each eye to finish off the look!

You can have as much fun with or without colours as you want with a sugar skull, as not all are so bright and you may not be brave enough with brighter colours.  I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did, I would love to see your interpretations of it too.
