Halloween - Day of the Dead Skull Face Paint ☠

This weekend my Mum is going to a Halloween themed wedding.
People are dressing up for it and she asked if I would paint her face for her like a Mexican Day of the Dead Skull. I love skulls (here are my own sugar skull tattoos!) so couldn't wait to have a go myself.
I ordered some Snazaroo face paints from ebay (they were an absolute steal too - hooray!) which arrived a couple of days ago and tried them out immediately!
This was my first attempt at a sugar skull on myself to practise ☠
Here's a step by step of what I did.... have got a couple of Halloween themed competitions on at the moment that you might be interested in...
Epic Pumpkin
Carving a pumpkin? Then you can be in with a chance of winning a Party Hamper worth £100!
We’re looking for the weirdest, wackiest and EPIC pumpkins around the UK. All you have to do to enter is take a picture of your #EpicPumpkin (or you can use pictures of your pumpkins from previous years) and email it to us at with #EpicPumpkin in the subject line.
You’ll be able to view your entry on our Pinterest board and we’ll also be featuring a Pumpkin of the Day on our Facebook account. You can find out more about this competition here.
(Here is my pumpkin I carved last year. I haven't decided what I'm going to do this year - any suggestions?)
Homemade Halloween
We’re challenging people to make the best Halloween costumes for as little money as possible this year, as we’re all about feeling epic and saving money.
If you’re planning on making any Halloween costumes (or even if you’ve made any in previous years), simply write a blog post about it and tell us how you’ve made it and how much it cost you overall.
We’re looking for the spookiest, most believable outfits that have cost the least to put together. A PS3, Blu-Ray DVDs, and a Nintendo 3DS are just some of the fantastic prizes up for grabs!
For more information on how to enter Homemade Halloween, take a look at this page.
I've entered my pumpkin into the competition and think I'll be entering my sugar skull face too - hooray for face paints from ebay!
Will you be entering?
