Sugar Skull Tutorial


[infobox bg=”purple” color=”black” opacity=”on” subtitle=”New Videos Every Week”]Watch on Wednesday[/infobox] Dia de los Muertos is upon us, friends and loved ones – and that means it’s time for Sugar Skulls to rule the night.  I’ve been obsessed with Sugar Skills since the 6th grade when I was introduced to the holiday.  Growing up in southern California, we celebrated with our friends and neighbors almost every year.  I’ve noticed a ton of Sugar Skulls this Halloween season, so I guess my old favorite is right on trend this year.

Creating a Sugar Skull is actually fairly easy, as long as you have about an hour and the patience to get it done.  I use basic Halloween face paint in white, red, and green to create this look, creating pink for the flowers by mixing the white and red.  Get a smooth eyeliner pencil to fill in the dark circles around your eyes and the petals around the circles.

There are a couple of key pieces to the Sugar Skull that must be included – the dark eyes with floral border, the floral chin, and dark nose.  I think the Cult Gaia crown finishes the look perfectly, especially when worn with the hair down and slightly curled.

Why I Fast on Mondays

Monday: oh, the duality of it. I love Monday and I also hate it with a deep passion. I hate that it will take a full 5 days for the weekend/nachos to arrive. I hate that I have to answer my emails. I hate that my alarm goes off and wakes me from my Sunday slumber. Yet, once I’m conscious I remember that I love waking up early on a summer Monday, hitting the streets before 8am when the city is still sleepy and heading out for a slow sweat at SLT. I love hitting the re-set button and having another chance to do and be. I also love fasting on Mondays, my chosen day of the week to detox until dinnertime (if you’re forced to begin your week, you may as well dive in head first).
