Glam Sugar Skull Halloween Makeup 

Hi everyone!! I am back with another glam Halloween look and I am so so excited about this one! The image below was my inspiration for this Sugar Skull makeup look. This makeup was done by @christianthemua on Instagram and when I came across this picture I knew I wanted to recreate it! I love the color scheme and how the warm tones give this a fall vibe as well. I kept my look pretty similar for the most part, while also simplifying the look slightly.

As always, keep scrolling to see my recreation of this look as well as a full list of products that I used to create it. Also, be sure to follow me on Instagram @marinaleebeauty!

 

FACE:

  • L.A. Girl Pro Coverage HD Foundation in fair (this is really a light medium shade, it matched my skin perfectly).
  • I skipped concealer and contour today since it would have been covered up by the eyeshadows anyway.
  • I used the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in black bean to sketch out the cheekbones and blended out the harsh lines with a matte black shadow to create a gradient effect.
  • I used a terracotta blush shade from the BH Cosmetics nude blush palette to bronze my skin and under the cheekbone shading.
  • I used the same NYX eye pencil to sketch the cross on my forehead, nose, and to sketch outlines petals on my chin. I used a black felt tip liner to help with line precision.
  • I applied a gold metallic shadow overtop of the black jumbo pencil on my nose for more dimension.

EYES:

  • I used the same NYX jumbo pencil in black bean as a base for the navy eyeshadow in order to make the color pop more.
  • I used a matte navy blue shadow from my Morphe 35B palette and patted this overtop of the black base. I also blended this slightly into the crease.
  • I used a mixture of MUG “Bitten” eyeshadow (burgundy) and a bright red shade from the same Morphe palette to shade all around my eyes in a circular area. I also used this to blend out the blue shadow.
  • I applied a thin winged bright yellow liner for a pop of color. The liner I used was the NYX Vivid Brights liquid liner in Vivid Escape.
  • I applied a pair of Ardell Demi Whispies
  • I used the same yellow liner to apply dots under my eyes as well as a bright cobalt blue liner from Wet N Wild.
  • I used a black felt tip liner to sketch the “sockets” around the red eyeshadow and the teeth (apply lipstick first).

BROWS & LIPS

  • Filled in my brows using the ABH Dipbrow pomade in medium brown
  • lined my lips with the Elf Matte Lip Color in Riach Red.
  • I applied the NYX Butter Lipstick in Lifeguard overtop.

Smokey Black & Violet Halo Eyes 

I was inspired by makeup artist Linda Hallberg, yet again, to recreate this black and violet smokey halo eye look. This is not an exact replication of Linda’s makeup, just my own more wearable take on it!

Products Used:

EYES

  • MAC eyeshadow in Soft Brown as a transition shade
  • NYX medium deep purple shade in the crease (sorry I do not remember the name of the shade because I depotted it from its packaging, but any shade will work!)
  • Tarte “Onyx” (matte black) eyeshadow from the Clay Play palette on the inner and outter corners of my eyes. I blended this shade slightly into the crease with the NYX purple eyeshadow I mentioned earlier.
  • Applied MAC eyeshadow in Star Violet (metallic pinky-brown plum shade) to the center of my eyelids using my finger.
  • Blended out the edges with a little bit of the black shadow so that there were no harsh lines
