Dia de Los Muertos makeup is where you can go crazy with celebratory sugar skull-styled glam. Do you love to play dress up? Love to play dress up and scare people?
The wonderful celebration of life that is the Festival of the Dead – Dia de Los Muertos – comes with sugar skulls, and a tribute to past lives lived well. This video, Dia de Los Muertos Makeup, will give you inspiration when the time comes for life to celebrate death.
Now increasingly celebrated in Australia around the time of Halloween, you can see from the fabulous Dia de Los Muertos makeup shown here why it’s becoming wildly popular. There are many different styles but all the Dia de Los Muertos makeup depicts a sugar skull, so there is much beauty in them. Strong pinks, yellows, oranges, purples are used and some paint a monochrome sugar skull, often in different hues of blue.
I interviewed celebrated Makeup Artist, Ant Adams, on The Style Podcast. This Halloween, or Day of The Dead, Ant will be using his skills to transform women into fabulous sugar skull incarnations. See more on www.anthonyadamsmakeup.com
Far from offensively ghoulish, the Dia de Los Muertos makeup is highly artistic and quite beautiful. The eyes and mouth are usually the focus with the addition of cobwebs, roses, other flowers and tattoo effects seen strongly. Remember, Dia de Los Muertos is a CELEBRATION. Bring out your inner goddess with divine, and unique, Dia de Los Muertos makeup.
