Happy Día de los Muertos

El Día de los Muertos on November 1st and 2nd is celebrated in a few Latino American countries. I have been looking at some really cool photos, videos and altars and got inspired to have my own make up celebration. So Happy Día de los muertos everyone!

Want to do the make up yourself?

You will need some face painting colors, including black and white, a fine brush, a nice mirror and some flowers.

Start by painting your face white leaving empty circles around your eyes.

Fill the eye circles with a color that you like - I chose blue.

Do a ring of contrasting color around the main circle (pink) and with a fine brush, draw lots of black petals around them.

With the same black, draw a mouth (straight line across your face with a few horizontal lines across your lips to represent teeth). Do also nice black swirls anywhere you like.

Decorate the rest of your face with flowers, hearts, dots and swirls in fun vibrant colors.

Wear your hair to your liking but do not forget to put some nice flowers around your hairdo!

You are done!

Here are some face painting ideas and colors for you. Click on image for details:
