ABOUT:
Mexican Day of the Dead or Dia de los Muertos is a time for honoring the dead. The skull is an important theme, with sugar skulls are offered to the dead and living.

The sugar skull has influenced the skeleton face painting and costumes that can be seen alongside the more traditional skull-shaped masks in Day of the Dead celebrations. As you can see here, sugar skull makeup is based on the traditional skull with darkened eye and nose sockets, but also includes intricate and sometimes colorful details on the rest of the face. These include petals around the eye sockets plus a spiders web on the forehead and often hearts and flowers.

I love skull face-painting for some reason. It looks so sexy.
