Halloween Makeup Tutorial: Mexican Sugar Skull!

I’ve never filmed a Halloween Makeup tutorial before but this year I’ve been feeling quite creative and decided to jump on the bandwagon!  The Mexican ‘Day of the Dead’ Sugar Skull look is one that I have done many times as a fancy dress costume and as it’s one of my favourites it seemed to be the obvious one to film!

Halloween Tutorial: Sugar Skull!


Products Used:
White Face Cream (from Asda)
Illamasqua Concealer in White
Rimmel True Match Translucent Powder
Rimmel Scandaleyes Liqiud Liner
Smashbox Limitless 15 Hour Wear Cream Shadow in Neptune
Barry M Dazzle Dust in #98 Petrol Black
Rimmel Scandaleyes EyeShadow Stick Crayon in Black
Sleek LipLiner in Moulin Rouge #307
17 Cosmetics Liquid Liner

This look is super easy to do but very striking and you can change it up as much as you want adding your own mark on it, for example some people add cobwebs or roses to their chin and foreheads (instead I prefer a few squiggles and a heart between my brows).

I really hope you enjoy the video tutorial and do let me know if you would like to see any more tutorials from me!

What will you be dressing as this Halloween?

  11. Im not planning on dressing up for Halloween, but i do think this is a great thing to do as it's doable with makeup! A standby 'costume' so to speak, just incase I get invited to a last min party!
