Halloween Makeup Tutorial: Sugar Skull

Good Morning Lovelies!!!

Today I am excited to share yet another makeup tutorial!

This look was inspired by the amazing artwork of Sylvia Ji!

Here's what we are after:
(click to make big!)

Ready?  Here we go!!!

Hair note:  If you are like me and have straight hair, and dont like wearing rollers to bed, try the method I did here.  Divide damp hair into 8 or so sections and twist each section then form into a bun, and secure with bobby-pins.  Sleep in them, and take them out when you are ready for curls!

Step 1:
Draw on you eye circles and basic nose shape by first using a eye liner, and then filling with a cream shadow, or cream or gel liner.  I used a NYX Jumbo cream eyeshadow pencil.
OH! I also added Lashes before I did anything!

Step 2:
Draw around your face and fill in with a white cream makeup.  OR if your like me and your cream makeup was a joke, just use white cream shadow! LOL
Then, Dab black shadow on the black parts, and either white shadow or baby powder on the white parts.
Then draw the bottom portion of your nose on using an eyeliner

Step 4 (and 5 since I forgot to take a pic of just step 4, sorry!!!)
Take a few colored liners of your choice and start doodling away!
Keep in mind that since you are drawing over white, they may come out lighter.
If this is the case, simply go over the lines with a thin, flat liner brushed tapped into shadow, by dabbing along the line you created with the liner.
In case your curious, I used a red lip liner, and black and purple eyeliners.

Realease your curls and add a few flowers and VOILA!

Add Wicked-cool Contacts for an even cooler look:
These were sent to me by the WONDERFUL folks at You Know It!
THESE are the ones I used and I highly recommend them.  The fact that they are like flowers really adds to the look!  You Know It not only has amazing pricing, but also CRAZY fast shipping, so there is still time to place your Contact order for Halloween!!!

That's it for today my dears!

See Ya Tomorrow!
The contacts featured in this post were sent to me by the Manufacturer or their PR company, in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
