I was inspired to do this simple skull makeup by Chrisspy on YouTube and @vickym0n on Instagram. I love how this looks really complicated, but creating it was very easy and did not involve too much tedious shading and detail. I really love how it looks unfinished and very artistic. I am so happy with how this turned out and hopefully y’all feel inspired as well!
How to get this look:
I applied foundation and did my brows like normal. Be sure to set your foundation really well with a powder so that blending the darker shadows on the face won’t be patchy. I also covered my lips with foundation and set them with powder as well.
For the eyes I used the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Black Bean and applied this all over the lid and bottom lash line as a base. Then I applied the shade Blackout from the UD Naked 2 palette and smoked this out quite a bit. All I did after this was apply one good coat of Covergirl Supersize mascara to my top and bottom lashes and apply the same Black Bean pencil to my waterline.
For the nose, I used the NYC black liquid liner to outline the shape, then filled it in and set it with a black eyeshadow.
For the cheekbones, I used the NYX single eyeshadow in Raven. This is still a matte black eyeshadow like Blackout, but it is not as intensely pigmented so it is easier to build up and blend out. To help blend out the cheekbones and create a gradient affect, I also dipped into some of the light brown shades from the Morphe 35O palette. I used the shame NYX Raven shade to create the frown lines near the brows and the indentions on my forehead. I also used it to carve out my jawline a little bit.
Lastly, the mouth. I used the blackout shade and a very thin liner brush to draw thin lines for the mouth and teeth. The beauty of this look is that it does not involve a lot of tedious detail, so all I did was just draw out lines for the teeth. I did make sure to apply the most pressure at the lip and feather it upward (or downward for the bottom teeth).
