DIY Dios de los Muertos Makeup

4 Nov

Hope everyone had an excellent Halloween weekend! Gotta love that Halloween ended up on a Friday this year. As promised, here’s a tutorial on how I put together my Dios de los Muertos makeup!

 

1. Apply white halloween makeup over your entire face. I used primer beforehand so the makeup stays in place. I also used manic panics white powder to make the white even more prominent.

2. I then added red around my eyes, following the arch of where my eyebrows are to the bottom socket of my eyes. I went over the red with Loreals red shimmer eye shadow so it adds depth.

This is how my eyes look after adding the eyeshadow, its slightly darker but shimmery in person.

3. Next is adding the black outlines, which I did with liquid eyeliner so it doesnt smear or fall off as easily. I outlined my eye socket first and added ring details around it. Then I worked down to my nose and my chin.

4. I then drew the spiderwebs on my forehead. This was probably the hardest part, making sure I end up with straight lines.

5. The final step is jazzing it up with additional swirls and silver bedazzle jewels to add that little spark.

DIY Dios de los Muertos Costume

26 Oct

Hey guys and gals! I’ve been busy the past week putting together my costume for Halloween. This year, I was torn between Medusa and Dios de los Muertos sugar skull and I ended up having more ideas on how to make the sugar skull costume instead. So this is going to mostly a tutorial on how I made the tutu and the headband. There will be a later tutorial on how I painted my face, so stay tuned for that! Otherwise, it took me less than a day to put this tutu together and 15 minutes to make the floral headband.

The overall cost of this costume was about $50 (mostly because the makeup and socks/ gloves I bought were more expensive than I thought. The tutu and headband materials cost less than $20 for everything from Joann Fabrics.) In hindsight, I probably could have just bought this costume, instead of spending the time to make it… but most costumes are super short and too revealing…. Not exactly what I’m going for. :p

I only managed to put together a tutorial on how I made the headband, I got way too excited to make the tutu and didn’t get a chance to document my process. But I found some fairly good ones that you could check out! Instead of using ribbon, I used elastic so I can just slip it on. The tutu is a little less than 24 inches because I wanted a longer tutu, since I’ll be wearing this to work. Check out the tutu tutorials here.
