CRACKED BLUE SKULL – Easy Halloween makeup tutorial

easy skull with cracks tutorial

Even though it might seem like such an effort, creating a skull makeup is easier than you’d think. Here’s proof: this is the second skull, I’ve ever made. Like, ever. Even if it didn’t turn out perfect, it still looks like a skull. Like, no one is gonna ask you at a Halloween party: “what are you supposed to be?” Duh, it’s a skull.

You can use these instructions to create the skull you like. Here I did some cracks on the skull, just to make it interesting. I also have one version where I decorated it with pearls, diamonds and some glitter. You can decorate it however you want, once you have the base of it done: eyes, nose, cheek contour and teeth.

Another thing I want to note, is that when you’re creating a skull makeup – it actually looks pretty rad when it’s not perfect. When you can see the brush strokes and lines. I gotta admit, the hardest part is to paint the teeth, but actually those look quite cool messy as well.

It’s Halloween – play a little, experiment and have fun.

One easy way to make your skull more interesting is to use another color under the black color. Like I used blue here. I love blue. You could also use some other color instead of white as your base.

How to make the teeth even easier: just stop at the first picture. I’ve seen lots of looks, where the teeth are drawn with just simple black lines.

And since I’m not a tooth professional (yeah, I’ll admit), check out Chrisspy’s video tutorial on easy skull makeup. On the video she shows exactly how to paint those teeth.

And that’s it! It’s been fun to get out of my comfort zone and play with Halloween makeup. I’m so used to doing beauty makeup, it’s refreshing to do something unconventional for a change.

What do you think of this look?

Just cut it!

Just cut it.

Sounds simple, but sometimes it’s so hard to get rid of something that is so attached to you. Such as, your hair.

I don’t know why I’ve always felt like I need to have long hair. Like, I’ve actually felt ugly and insecure if it was short. Maybe it has something to do with the two times I’ve cut my hair super short and immediately regretted it. Like, I’ve done it without giving it much of a thought. Which, though, sounds like a typical Charlotta.

But a while back I got to the conclusion that my hair was just not doing me any favors. Cutting my hair much shorter was something I actually had thought about for a longer time – even though the decision happened quickly (like, do you know the feeling when you just need something to happen NOW?). You know I’m all about those natural curls, but my hair was so long and the ends were so damaged, they hardly managed to curl at all.

So I guess I did it for the curls.

Before and after!

And I have no regrets! I love my shorter hair. Which is still long. It’s like short long hair. Or long short hair. Or a long bob? Be it whatever – it curls so much better now and actually that’s what’s making it appear shorter than it is. My hair can now lift itself up.

And I feel quite lifted as well. Making a change to your hair is quite a powerful thing to do, as superficial as it sounds. I am so happy I made the big cut. I feel quite relieved. I don’t need my hair to be long – I just want it to appear healthy and nice.

In these photos you see my hair in it’s natural state – there are no curl creams whatsoever used. Susanna just washed my hair and used some moisturizing curl cream and a light oil. Then she diffused my hair and let it live it’s best life. She even used a sulfate-free shampoo, because she knows how I am. So if you have naturally curly hair and are thinking of going to a hairdresser – I can warmly recommend Susanna.

Thank you Susanna for once again taking care of my hair!
