This white pink pearl skull created itself. Or that’s what I’d like to say. In reality I struggled with it for over two hours and almost quit a few times, but my sister pushed me to keep going. I guess what I meant is that I didn’t have a clear vision for it. I just tried to go with the flow and added things here and there. I wanted to keep it light and pretty, even if it is a skull. In the end, now looking at these photos, I think I did an okay job.
Pearl skulls are beautiful and I definitely want to do one in the future as well. But in all honesty: pearls require patience. I basically glued each pearl one by one (because the stickers didn’t stick). But the result is worth it.
Anyway – here is my tutorial for this easy pearl skull!

Here are the step by step photos and written instructions for creating this pearl skull. All the products are listed at the end of this post.
Apply a light reflecting primer all over your face. Bonus, if the primer has a pearly shade to it. Then apply a full coverage foundation all over the face. After that highlight your face – at least your cheekbones. A cool toned/pearl highlighter is perfect for this look. I would also suggest adding a lot of pink blush at this point! I applied blush only in the end, but it did look really nice, so I recommend doing it right in the beginning. You can add blush on your cheeks, nose, chin and forehead.
Start sketching out the skull with white face paint. I also did some extra brush strokes here and there (on my nose, chin etc).
Finally – add your pearls one by one. And that’s it! Finish off the look with some pearl accessories.
The most important things for this look are basically just face paints (or you could use a white pencil like *NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk), glue and pearls (or pearl stickers).
If you’re extra like I am, you also need light reflecting primer, a full coverage foundation, a highlighter and a blush.
This year I’m super excited for Halloween makeup. Last year I challenged myself with this blue skull makeupand thisHalloween look with fake blood. This year I’m back with another skull look – because it’s just not a Halloween without one. (And yes, I’m making this black trash bag background a thing.)
This purple glam skull is pretty, but still a bit scary. At least I managed to scare some people when I opened the door wearing this. This look is perfect for anyone, who wants to feel glamorous, but still make an effort for Halloween. Spoiler alert, that’s me. Can’t feel anything, but glamorous wearing diamonds and glitter on my face.
Obviously you can also tone this look down by skipping the diamonds and the glitter on the lips. I actually liked this look both ways.

This eye look is also what makes this look glamorous. I did a simple halo eye using blue eyeshadow and gold on the center of the lid and in the inner corners. I also added small diamonds in my fake lashes to make them fit this look perfectly. Side note: the lashes look dirty, because I added mascara to them to make them more suited to this look.
The hardest part of this look is teeth. At least it takes some detailing work and time. You can always skip them or just create black lines (like below, the first picture in the tutorial). But I don’t think perfect teeth are important in this look. If they resemble teeth, that’s good enough.
Below is my simple skull teeth tutorial from year before.
