CRACKED BLUE SKULL – Easy Halloween makeup tutorial

easy skull with cracks tutorial

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.

Easy Halloween makeup

You can use these instructions to create an easy Halloween skull makeup. Here I added some cracks on the skull, just to make it interesting. You could also add 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. If you’re more into glam, I have another tutorial for a purple glam skull.

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 you need to re-create this skull:

*CC Beauty Face & Body Paints with brushes
*Black Eyeliner

Yesterday we had a big space themed party, that we planned together with my sisters. I loved the theme and knew from the beginning I wanted to try doing galaxy makeup on myself. It turned out better than expected and I was super happy with the result. I kinda want to wear this makeup every day now. I think glitter is my color!
