Step 1: Set Up
To start off I had a clean primed face, then I took a glue stick and put that on my brows to make sure they were flat and ready to paint over, I also had on a wig cap. After that I took a white eyeliner pencil and outlined the 'crack' of the skin to the skull and also the shape of the skull.
Step 2: Skull Base
I then took this lavender colored body paint from Mehron and I put it on where the skull is going to be.
Step 3: Black
Using a black body paint from Mehron I put that in the hollows of my face. That would be my temple, eye, and nose. I also used a detail brush to add any fine lines and cracks.
Step 4: Shadow
I need to shadow around the skull and to do this I used two darker purple shadows to start off. I also made sure to shadow where the skin and the skull meet to make sure it looked like the skull was sitting under the skin. I then took a tad bit of black eyeshadow to deepen up the shadows even more.
Step 5: Teeth
Taking a white body paint I used it to make the teeth for the skull.
Step 6: Fill In
Taking that black body paint I filled in the cheek hole
Step 7: Teeth Detail
I used black eyeshadow to shadow around the teeth, and I took purple and black eyeshadow to deepen up the gum section.
Step 8: Pink
to add a little more color I added some pink shadow around the skull.
Step 9: Other Side
I took a foundation and put it on then set it with translucent powder.
Step 10: Outline
I used the white eyeliner to outline the eye look witch it going to be a butterfly wing. I used a reference photo to help me.
Step 11: Base
For the base of the wing I used dark purple and light purple body paint.
Step 12: Base of Lid
For the base of the lid I used a white jumbo pencil from NYX.
Step 13: Detail
For some detail lined I used some black body paint and a small brush.
Step 14: Pink and Detail
I put some pink on the lid then used a black liner to make a wing and added some dots on my inner corner .
Step 15: White Body Paint
I used the white body paint to add dots on the wings and some other little details
Step 16: Lips
I put on some nice pink lipstick.
Step 17: Random Face Stuff
I contoured my cheeks and added blush.
Step 18: Drips
I decided to take some black body paint and add drips under the eye.
Step 19: Shadow
To make it look even more like the skin was pooping up I added a shadow around the crack.
Step 20: Body Start
I used the white eyeliner to map out the crack on my neck.
Step 21: Fill It In
I used the purple to fill in the bones, and black to fill in the rest.
Step 22: Shadow
Using the same to purple shadows and black shadow I shadowed around that neck hole.
Step 23: Hole
I filled in a black hole on my chest where the butterflies are coming from then I used brown shadow to create the lifted skin look
Step 24: Butterfly
I used lash glue to attach the butterflies
