Hey dolls! So Monday October 28th was Day of the DEAD day!
and of course everyone came decked out with their SUGAR SKULLS!
I was most excited about this because I have never done a sugar skull before.
CRAZY I know....
So I did a lot of research because I had to know what certain shapes are common and things like that!
I decided that i didn't want to do my whole face, cuz ain't nobody got time for that lol!
Honestly I wasn't sure how good I was gonna be at it, So I played it safe with just one side!
(Red Text= Sugar Skull, Black= Regular)

So i got this idea off of YT and decided to give it my best shot!
Lets just get into the products i used and I'll have more pics below!!
So Lets begin with complexion!..
For the left side (Sugar Skull Side) of my face I used..
|Pur Minerals Primer, NYX jumbo pencil MILK, White cream makeup,|
Kryolan Translucent powder
I really Liked the Pur Primer for looks like this because it doesn't leave any greasy feel on my face! I started out with some White cream makeup that i picked up from Walmart, but It was such a hassle to have to do layers. So I did a little and then just went over it with NYX' Jumbo pencil in MILK. I set that with a Translucent powder that is really white.
For the other side of my face I used the same primer, Clinique Stay Matte Foundation in Vanilla, Tarte Maracuja concealer in Light Med, and set it with NYX Mineral Powder.
Then I started on my eye area for the sugar skull, i didn't want to do all black, so I chose some eye shadows to make it POP! and I began with my eye liner pencil and just did an outline around my eye, using my eyebrow as a guide!
Then i filled it in with the shadows and set the outline with Black cream makeup, and a small brush!

|I used Milk as a base, then used that first shade all over, I then took that light pink on the right towards the inner eye, and that dark purple in the middle on the outer area of my eye to give more dimension!|
Then I used a Black shadow with a triangle sponge shadow applicator and created the petals around the circle!
|All the Shadows I used for the Sugar Skull Came from my|
Coastal Scents 120 Eyeshadow Palette!
For the other side of my face I used my It cosmetics Brow Power Pencil.
and Then I used my limited Edition Tarte Shadow Palette. I used the 3rd shadow
in the 2nd row all over the lid, then the one above that in my crease, and then the 3rd shadow in first row for a brow highlight!
Then I winged out my eyeliner and tight lined, and I put on some mascara!
I also winged out my liner for the sugar skull too, and tight lined!
Okay so back to my sugar skull! I then used my liquid liner and my black cream makeup to start designing my face! I used my liner for the line down the middle of my face, and to do my web. I found that if you do quick easy strokes it comes out a lot neater!
I also used the liner for the lines over my mouth because i wanted them to be more precise.
For the designs on the side of my face i used my black cream makeup and a thin liner brush.
and I used it to cover the tip of my nose!
So back to my other side I contoured my cheeks using my ELF cool bronzer quad,
and the used the lighter brown shade to warm up around my temple and jaw line. Then I used Benefits Rockateur Blush on my cheek bones, and I highlighted first with my Chella Ivory Lace highlighter, and then again with Laura Gellers highlighter in French Vanilla.

So then to finish off my sugar skull I decided to add some rhinestones around my flower, to make it pop even more! I used eyelash glue and just popped it in 8 different place, and then using tweezers I put the stone on top of the glue. Make sure if you do this you wait a couple seconds so the glue gets tacky, it will stay on way faster!
For the other side I used a Black Lip liner from NYX and the topped it off with a dark burgundy lipstick!
So that is it! I hope you guys enjoyed this and found it helpful!
