Sugar Skull

We love a Dia de los Muertos sugar skull. And our interpretation is as striking as it is beautiful. If you want to get more creative and elaborate, simply add to the design patterns around the eye.

1. Begin with base makeup applied.

2. Use Precision Ink Gel Eyeliner to completely cover one eye and draw a pattern around it.

3. Use Precision Ink Liquid Eyeliner in Scribe, plus red lipstick and Pure Pigment in Alluvium to fill in the pattern.

4. Use Eyebrow Cake in Vehement to define the other brow.

5. Apply black eyeliner to the nose.

6. Use Lipstick in Shard and gel liner to create an ombre lip look.

7. Finish with Masquara.
