Feliz Día Los Muertos everyone ! I know I’m posting this om the last day of the celebration , but I was pretty busy with some other things and decided I wanted to try celebrating with some makeup . 
Día Los Muertos is usually celebrated November 1st through 2nd , but some places in Mexico can have the holiday extend to a week . And other places will have October 31st be the day you prepare your altars , food and such . Also it’s can be a special day to remember deceased children . To be honest I have not had the opportunity to celebrate the traditional holiday , but I see my family in Mexico online celebrate Día de Los Muertos . So I ask them some questions and read a bit online . Plus in the past my Mom would make traditional Mexican pumpkin candy ( it’s so good ) . So while I don’t have all the ingredients for pumpkin candy , it’s nice to hold that memory as this holiday is all about celebrating the life and death of your loved ones .

Now my look is a different from the traditional looks , but I tried to keep the scallops around the eye sockets , the nice lines , and even tried to make my own flower crown with some fake flower ties and a headband . The dress is from one of my aunt’s in Mexico, who was kind enough to give me some cool clothes . I thought it went well with the aesthetic of La Catrina . I still don’t really speak Spanish well , but technology and being able to see and talk with my family online has really helped me feel closer culturally . It also helped that Mom tried to educate me best she could on some of the traditions too .  With that said I’ll go into the products , which there is a lot :

  • Nyx White Shadow Base 
  • BH Cosmetics Fairy Lights palette Marvelous (matte deep black) used around my brows and lower parts of my eye . Also used to contour on hollows of cheeks.
  • Juvia’s Place Wahala Palette ( Sis ) smokey charocoal , used to blend out Marvelous into  Woke( a light lilac shade ) also used Unafraid ( the holographic lilac/blue shimmer duochrome) in the inner corners of my eyes . 
  • Glamlite Donut palette  So Sweet ( purple matte shade blended into Woke) and Grape ( purple shimmer with blue reflects ) 
  • Royal Nubian palette , I used the darkest purple into my outer corner . Also had to use as blush over my Fenty Cheeks out blush as it wasn’t dark enough. I also contoured with it too . The glitter in this palette was also used on my scallops (with glitter glue) and on the lines on my face . 
  • Juvia’s Place Mini Violet’s palette , used the darkest purple for outer corner . I did so much blending .
  • Nyx That’s the point liner 
  • Revon Color stay liner in waterline
  • Milk Kush mascara
  • Milk heart tattoo stamp
  • Colourpop pink heart stamp
  • Nyx Glitter Glue
  • Sugarpill Lipstick in Zero on my nose , and lines on my lips .
  • Limecrime  Diamond Crushers Black Unicorn on my nose and lips
  • Blow pony lipstick on my lips 
  • Nyx Amethyst lipstick on my chest for design
  • Fenty Cheeks out blush in Drama Cla$$ as contour
  • Fenty Matchstix Highlighter in Unicorn on cheeks
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Concealer in 4
  • Beauty Blender concealer in 2.10 I wanted a lighter shade to look more bone like.

And now the pics ! I wanted to try different angles to show off the makeup . CFE9283E-C8FE-48F1-8E33-112A3072EA3175E290DE-B8D4-459A-A1F7-9A028A23C736E9181A7C-451A-4815-839B-3CBCBA81D53A

I had a lot of fun with this look ! Plus it’s a nice to remember all my loved ones who have passed . And yes it’s sad they’re no longer here , it’s important to remember the good times and celebrate life ✨💕. Hopefully next year I can visit my family in Mexico during the holidays. Also fun fact the xoloitzcuintli (Mexican hairless dogs ) were similar to Anubis the Egyptian jackal god and helped guide the souls to the afterlife in Mesoamerican lore . Have a good week everyone ! 🦄✨

  1. Wow this is fantastic! I learned a lot about Dia de los Muertos from the movie Coco, which I loved. In CA it’s celebrated more and more each year, but I don’t see any mention of it out here in Massachusetts. I miss western US culture already! Anyhow, I just love your look! I am impressed you did that on yourself– wow it looks professional. I can’t even get my winged liner right lol.

    1. Thanks so much ! I would’ve done more but I did everything sort of last minute . I would like to have some marigolds next time ✨ . And yes I loved Coco too ! And thanks again , I’m glad you liked it 🌸🦄.

  2. I’ve always appreciated the idea of Dia De Los Muertos and other culture’s traditions that are more celebratory rather than our typical perspective on death which is much more somber and mournful.

    I think in the long run it’s probably a healthier philosophy.

    Regardless, did a really nice job and look awesome as always. ☺️
