Makeup Tutorial: 8 Easy Steps to Creating Day of the Dead Sugar Skull Makeup

Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) Sugar Skull seems to be the costume of choice this Halloween and with a few products and tools from Sephora, Amazon, and your own makeup kit you can easily pull off this look! What’s going to make your Sugar Skull prettier than everyone else’s? You’re going to be a good girl and listen to me when I say don’t use Halloween makeup and grease paint!
