Well, they've done it again! Our hometown heroes, the San Francisco Giants, have once again captured the title of World Series Champions!!! In honor of their exciting win, I thought I would share my SF inspired 'Dia de los Muertos' makeup.
The beauty of this Halloween classic is.... there are no rules! You can make this look your own by playing with the details. Start with a foundation several shades lighter than your natural skin tone. Add orange shadow in a large circle around each eye focusing the darker orange shade on and around the lid, then blending outward with the lighter shade (colors listed below). Define cheeks with the same orange shadow blending diagonally from the ear toward the corner of the mouth. Get Creative using a fine tipped brush and black cream liner to outline each eye, to define the black tip of the nose, to heavily line the eyelids, and to add as many other details as you want (ie: tear drops, dots, swirls, etc.) Finish with mascara or add false lashes for an even more dramatic look. Rather than painting a traditional web across the forehead, I added an upside down Golden Gate Bridge. For the mouth, I mimicked the stitching on a baseball using an angle brush and red lipstick (NARS Red Lizard).
Products include: M.A.C. eyeshadows in Red Brick and Rule, M.A.C. fluidline in Blacktrack, and M.A.C. brush #210
Hope you enjoy this Bay Area twist on a fun Halloween look. Leave a comment and let me know what you think (or if you've tried a version of your own)! GO GIANTS!!!
