Sugar Skull/Day of the Dead Halloween Look!

Sugar Skulls are a really fun and creative idea for Halloween, and recently I've noticed it's becoming more and more popular. I've seen a lot of makeup looks and tutorials for them, and decided to do my own. I derived a lot of inspiration from Sylvia Ji, a painter who is known for depicting beautiful women often wearing ornate sugar skull makeup.

I wanted to do something slightly different from some that I had been seeing, and used lots of gold glitter. This took me like 3 hours to do, so if you have some time on your hands, try this out. It's a lot of fun.
