Day of the dead halloween makeup look

SAMSUNG
Hello all!
So with Halloween quickly approaching I thought I would do a few Halloween looks.

Although here in Australia we don’t really celebrate Halloween all that much, I still enjoy doing the makeup.
Plus this year I’m going to choose a look and wear it on the night when the little kids in my neighborhood come trick or treating! πŸ™‚Β  Hopefully I won’t scare them, as they are only very little!

And I know this is being posted really late considering it’s Halloween tomorrow! Sorry about that but I am still having problems with my laptop and now it doesn’t even turn on and charge at all! 😦 But I luckily uploaded this photos before it died on me. However the other look I did might not be out til after Halloween :/
But you can use them as inspiration for next year! πŸ™‚

Anyway this is the first look I did which is the day of the dead face, sometimes be known as a sugar skull.

Day of the dead is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout mexico and around the world in other cultures. It is the gathering of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family memebers who have died. It is celebrated on the day of Halloween (31st october)

It’s the second time I’ve done this look before, I did it about 3 years ago or something just for fun and I must say I’m getting better.
Although I have a very unsteady/shaky hand when it comes to doing fine details and I could not do the half circles around my eyes to save myself! :/

This look is a very fun look as you can be as creative as you want and go crazy because there is no ‘right’ way.

Some people choose to put a spiderweb some choose to put a rose.
Myself I chose a spiderweb because I know how uncreative I am and how bad and unsteady I am a rose would have been a mess!
