Here is a quick example of how to make your face up with a Sugar Skull style design.
It takes around an hour to do after some practice and once you have built your confidence a little.
Hope it helps and enjoy !
Step 1: Basic Preperation
Check you don't have any allergies to any of the products and take care not to get any makeup in your eyes.
Then make sure you thoroughly clean your face to remove any dry skin or grease.
Then apply a healthy amount of moisturiser and let it soak in.
Draw on the basic outline of the eyes and where the jaw line is with a black eyeliner pencil.
Shade in the eyes with your chosen colour then block in the white. I used Ben Nye clown white which lasts for ages and goes on really well.
Step 2: Add some more detail.
Here I have used grease paint as it goes onto the white well. A Krylon clown wheel. The black on the nose is regular eye shadow, but be carefull as the powder can cross contaminate the existing white.
Step 3: More detail and colour
The cheek blending is done using a normal acrylic brush then smoothed with a finger.
