Dia de Los Muertos – The Day of the Dead Mexican Skull Makeup – sounds a lot more morbid than it really is. While in the American Halloween tradition death is something to be feared, this national Mexican holiday actually celebrates it and welcomes all the departed spirits home. Starting at midnight of October 31, it goes on till November 2nd, and on November 1st all banks and public institution are closed in Mexico.

One of the most important symbols of the Dia de Los Muertos is the Calaveras, which stand for “skulls” in Spanish. Raging from the Calaveras de azúcar (“sugar skulls”) to jewellery, those amusing and colorful skulls are used to adorn the altars for the dead that are set up for the holiday.

Recently the Calavera motive has developed into a highly artistic style of make-up design, combining stunning and elaborate face paint with various flowers, beads and any other props.[corner-ad id=1]
