Dia de Muertos: A Modern Spin on a Classic Calavera

Just a quick bit of inspo for all of my fellow Latinxs out there! This week in anticipation of Dia de Muertos, I envisioned a calavera with varying tones of brown and black and here’s how it turned out…


I of course had to bust out my Gold Metallic Powder and Mixing Liquid from Mehron…that has seriously been my October staple product!  


Tony Moly Black gel eyeliner was perfect for the black outlines and nose. And my favorite brown and black shadows provided the shading! Simple but striking…it was fun to step away from the traditional white base and I love how it turned out!  




Needles to say, it made grocery shopping much more eventful!  And I think I have some great ideas for our upcoming Dia inspired photoshoot! Can’t wait to see how our trio of Mexican models turn out…so stay tuned for more calavera inspo soon!
