HELLO! So, in todays tutorial I went to the Dollar Tree to see what I could find to make a Halloween costume/makeup look. I decided to go with a skull look and that turned into a pirate skull look. I think it went okay and if you would like to see how I did it just keep reading.

Step 1: Outline
I like to start out with outlining what I'm doing. It helps me figure out what I'm trying to do and helps eliminate mistakes. I went ahead and outlined where I was putting my head wrap and the shape of the skull. You can really make whatever skull shape you want but I do find that fallowing my own skull shape helps it look nicer. You can do that too by just feeling your bones.
Step 2: White Body Paint
Next I filled in the base color of the skull with white body paint. This white body paint is actually not that bad. It's a little patchy but for a skull that is fine.
Step 3: Head Wrap
For the head wrap I took the red boy crayon and filled it in. Then I took the black body crayon and added some fabric lines. The crayons aren't my favorite but they do work.
Step 4: Shadowing
I only ended up using the black eyeshadow out of the pack, but I'm sure you could make all three colors work great. I used that black to add shadowing around the 'coin' or whatever that is on the head wrap and add more depth to the black I already put down.
Step 5: The 'coin'
I'm not sure what you want to call that circle on my head but I keep calling it a 'coin' and I used a bit of the black body crayon and rubbed it in to get a little gray color then I used some of that body glitter and tapped it on top.
Step 6: Details
to start the details of the skull I took that black crayon again and started filling in the cheek area then I used that eyeshdow to set it. The eyeshadow helps a lot.
Step 7: Shadow Details
With a skull the shadow details mean a lot. So I just went crazy with that black eyeshadow to make the skull look better. I sahdowed around the jaw, eyes, nose, ect. I even gave myself an angry expression.
Step 8: Filling In
I used that black crayon and black eyeshadow to fill in the nose and the eyes. You can see there how more the eyeshadow helps.
Step 9: More Shadowing
I shadowed more, because I felt like I need it. I used the black eyeshadow to shadow around the teeth.
Step 10: Teeth
using the white body paint again I filled in the teeth, then I actually took that black eyeliner to fill in the missing teeth parts and add more detailed lines around the teeth.
Step 11: DONE
Add the hook and the bird skeleton and your done! I had so much fun doing this and I think it turned out better then I thought it would. I hope you enjoy!
