Watch the video to see her sugar skull makeover, and follow along with the directions below for your own Halloween look.
Add depth and dimension to the face by shading with a deep purple face paint followed by a lighter purple around the perimeter of the face, the hollows of the cheeks and around the mouth.
Blend out the edges of the contours, and intensify the highlighted areas with a yellow face paint.
Create eye circles using a wet brush in orange. Intensify inner corners and the crease with a deeper orange. Define the eye with the deep purple set with black.
Color in your inner lips with black face paint, and blend out with the deep purple. Use a damp fine-detail brush in black to draw mouth stitches.
Smudge and create dimension with a bright purple pressed powder. Use the same detail brush to draw facial detailing on the cheeks and forehead.
Add latex-free adhesive, and place crystals around the eye circles to create dimension.
