“Calavera: a representation of human skull made from either sugar or clay, which is used in the Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead and the Roman Catholic holiday All Souls Day.” – Wikipedia, which got it right!
This year, since Halloween is on a Friday, our annual party at bestie’s apartment falls on November 1, the Day of the Dead. I have, therefore, been researching sugar skull makeup with my usual thoroughness. I found some really spectacular illustrations, so I thought they were the perfect post for today. And the bonus for me is that I finally have a way to justify the 2,000 shades of eyeshadow I own!
