Dia De Los Muertos - Sugar Skull by KatieAlves Dia De Los Muertos - Sugar Skull by KatieAlves
I've gotten so many requests for this! I finally gave it a go! The white was a little difficult to work with but once I got the hang of it, it seemed to work.

This by far is absolutely gorgeous. I wanted to do my face for Halloween different patterns but wow so gorgeous. Wanted to ask what kind of gemstones did you use and how did you manage to get them to stick around your eyes/forehead?

One of the beautifullest skull makeups I have seen :) what white colour do you use? I never seem to figure what to use :(

I actually just used Rubie's Halloween cream makeup (add water for a smoother coverage) and then covered it in white eyeshadow to smooth everything out!
