Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Hi guys 😀 Well late to the party…but at least I made it! Super busy life stuff & work totally kept me out of my studio. But for Halloween weekend I was able to film all (3) makeup/costumes. First up: “Living Frida Kahlo / Sugar Skull Portrait “~ Costume & Makeup Tutorial This is my interpretation of Frida Kahlo’s 1940 portrait. The twist on the look is a nod to Dios de los Muertas (Day of the Dead) with a black & white sugar skull. Before the tutorial there is a little run down on how I put the costume together. Hope you enjoy it! Let me know what ya think. Love ya! +x* Positivity & Peace *E Details & annotations on Tuesday. It’s late & I need to get my butt home!

Elise this is absolutely outstanding!! I wouldn’t know where to begin with such a detailed sugar skull, not to mention that you spliced it together with something completely different but it just fits seamlessly! My goodness you are so creative! How on earth you think this up is beyond me!
