a Scary Smoon

by 5.11.11

Hi everyone,

On the 31st of October, me and my friends were celebrating 'Dia de los Muertos' in the Rohre in Stuttgart.

I have never worn this much make up all at once. We spend about 4 hours getting ready. I've surfed the internet for tutorials and images. It was very difficult to choose a design, so I kind of did my own except for the eyes. They are inspired by:

Made by Heilemania.de

This was my first try at creating a 'Sugar Skull'. I didn't have any practice before and also didn't glue my eyebrows because I forgot to buy a 'Pritt Stick'. I do would like to erase my eyebrows one day. That I will save for next year.

Make Up used;
  • BH Cosmetics 120 palette (lots of green)
  • MAC Chili lipstick 
  • MAC Blackground (underneath the green e/s)
  • MAC Black Black chromagraphic eye liner
  • White face paint by unidentified make up brand
  • Dress by Asos.com
  • Fake bird from Mulberry
