Day of the Dead Make Up

 Happy Halloween! Well I’ve been excited about this all month, so I’m so pleased to share my costume for this year. Day of the Dead girl! Planning a great night out with the girls tonight, all dressed up and hitting the town for cocktails and dancing. After such a busy month it was get to let my hair down.
I am by no means a make-up artist so this is a very basic attempt at Day of the Dead girl make-up there are hundreds on youtube videos and photos on Pinterest by real make-up artists that look stunning. This is just my average girl attempt to give a more realistic expectation of what you can pull off if you’re not an absolute pro!

Step 4: Add colour to the centre of your lips and with a black eyeliner draw a line across your mouth with stitches.

Step 5: Decorate with spiders webs and swirls added crystals.

Step 6: Finish off with a flower headband. I got this beauty for New Look on sales for £3.

Voila! Trick or Treat!
