Dia De Los Muertos or Day of the Dead is well known by Sugar Skull Makeup. For my Halloween makeup tutorials series 2013, I decided to do a Sugar skull makeup tutorial. I already created a Sugar Skull halloween makeup look last year but I never did a tutorial. This year I decided to collaborate with Petra Kozina. She is an amazing makeup artist in Slovenia. I decided that we each create our own unique sugar skull makeup look and share it together as a collaboration with our subscribers and followers. Make sure to check out Petra’s look below she did the yellow sugar skull also show her some love by liking her video and subscribing.
Sugar Skull Makeup 2013
Halloween makeup is not complete without a Sugar Skull makeup tutorial. Sugar Skulls (Dia De Los Muertos) and Halloween are not the same holiday but in some ways they are similar. Day of the dead is a Mexican holiday that is celebrated around the world and in Mexico. It’s all about family and friends gathering together to pray and show honor to their loved ones that passed. Sugar Skulls are a sign of honor towards our passed one. This is a very unique holiday that has a very long tradition in Mexico. It was traced back to a pre columbian past. The modern festival fell in August (Aztec calendar) and the entire festival was dedicated to the Lady of the Dead.
Sugar Skull Halloween Makeup Tutorial 2013
Day of the Dead, Dia De Los Muertos is celebrated on November 1st and 2nd. Because of it’s traditions and a close connection to the Catholic holiday All Saints’ Day there are some similarities but unlike the Catholic, in this festival people honor their dead with sugar skulls, marigolds and their favorite foods, beverages. Catholics also honor their dead on November 1st but in a much different way. My Sugar Skull makeup tutorial was inspired by The Day of the Dead holiday. I wanted to make my look as close as possible, but with a modern touch, similar to the classic Mexican Sugar Skull look, which included black and white and an additional color. I was inspired by many classic sugar skull dolls which were influenced or made for Dia De Los Muertos. I wanted to make a simple yet sexy look which would look beautiful and you could actually wear if for Halloween or even Dia De Los Muertos.
