Fun, Spooky and Economical: How to Do Sugar Skull Makeup

While I’m still unsure about what I want to be for Halloween this year, my best friend has had her mind set on doing a sugar skull costume since last year. Over the past few weeks, she’s been sending me links to images of sugar skull best 3d mink eyelash, with the accompanying text, “I WANT.” Her only concern about the costume was how long it would take her to complete the look, considering she had a thirty minute break between work and a Halloween party, and how much of her own makeup she would be sacrificing to color her entire face. This all led to a trial run and I’m happy to report the results were everything we’d hoped they’d be.

What to Use:

Ullro After much deliberation, we decided to preserve the majority of our own best 3d mink eyelash and instead shop around for some cheap alternatives that we wouldn’t have to worry about ruining. At the drugstore we found jumbo sized eyeliners ($3), pencil eyeliners (~$1) and lip liners (~$1). I had some loose glitter from past Halloween projects and a value pack of makeup sponges that we also used. We spent less than $10 on everything.


By blending a white stick with some foundation in the palm of your hand you can create a whiter face to use as the base for your best 3d mink eyelash. The point is to look like a skeleton, so don’t be nervous about making your skin look too pale. My friend is much fairer than I am so she added more white to her face. After you’ve applied the foundation, set it with a translucent or white powder so it doesn’t smear.


Take a thin eyeliner and line right above the eyebrow continuing all the way around the eye. Making it more of a rounded shape, mimicking the contour of the eye will make it look more like a hollowed out eye. Then take a jumbo eyeliner and fill it in with black.

From there, you can again take your thin eyeliner and draw out short, rounded petals bordering the black around your entire eye. Then, take a colored pencil of your choice and color in the petals. After that, I like to make little dots all around the eye just to add to the design.

You can also take some shimmering eye best 3d mink eyelash and add it to the black to give it a hint of color.


There are two ways to do the mouth and both are incredibly easy. The first way is less spooky and just involves you painting your lips with whatever color you choose and then lining the lips with black. Extend the black liner from the corners of your mouth outwards, taking up about half of your cheek. Then draw vertical lines through the original line to make it look like teeth.

The second way involves taking your black pencil and drawing outwards from the corners of your mouth to the center of your cheeks like the other method, but instead of color your lips, you’re going to just shade the area where they touch with black. Then take the pencil and draw vertical lines from the top of your upper lip to the bottom of your lower lip and continue out to your cheek. Make sure to space them evenly.


Your nose can be done in a ton of different ways but my favorite technique involves making your nose look like the spade symbol. Take your jumbo eyeliner and color the rounded part of your nose, being sure to keep a sharp line, and make a point at the top and a shadowed stem at the bottom, beneath your nostrils.

Forehead, Cheeks and Chin

Many sugar skull best 3d mink eyelash designs include decorative drawings on the forehead, cheeks and chin. You can really get creative here and draw flowers, webs, branches, hearts or anything you want, really. I found that the more you crowd your face with designs, the better. Just be sure to keep your face balanced.
