How to: A Sugar Skull Makeup Tutorial

Over the course of the last few years,  I have been painting my own face in a sugar skull style for the annual Day of the Dead (or Dia de Los Muertos) celebration on November 2nd.

People are always hitting me up on my Instagram and Tumblr, asking what products I use and how to paint the decorative designs that make the sugar skull so distinctive,  so I made a video to show you how I do it.

I've used everything from my sister's makeup, clown-grease makeup and even regular craft paints. Hands down, I'm loving the Tulip Body Art line by iLovetoCreate.  It goes on like buttah and feels really light.

So, enjoy my tutorial. Hopefully it will inspire you to create your own amazing sugar skull. :D
