Dia De los Muertos Makeup by TalesOfNightWing Dia De los Muertos Makeup by TalesOfNightWing
Been working with the kryolan makeup my Drama teacher ordered (I am the official makeup artist of the Drama team and School Theater, and kids will be paying me to do their makeup for halloween)
I did the makeup, and also took the photos (self portraits)
This was the first time I had ever done dia de los muertos (day of the dead) makeup.

I speak a little spanish and can understand bits and pieces of conversation. If worst came to worst, I would be able to survive in a spanish speaking country and probably pick it up more, but as it is my skills are much better listening than speaking.

Memento mori every day,
no matter how much I twist and turn, the end steps in closer every day...
Not my enemy, but my friend, without it, what would I move and create, if I knew that it could never be too late?
Respect for it, and still to see the brighten side, every day, month and year, elevates the experience we carry on our back, piling up our huge life stack.
And so, a reminder I should do some more of my own, go out to greet the sun, come back and do the picture until I hear the singing owl.

If you don't mind me asking: 
I'm painting a sugar skull as well on my sister's face. The face paint is decent but not quality. (It's from a local Halloween store.) 
What can I do to make sure that the white face paint isn't streaky?

For this I used pretty high quality kryolan cover up, and I applied it with a very small brush. My best advice would be to take your time. When you take a sponge and just smear it on, it is going to streak. If you don't have time, and you have to just smear it on and not apply it smoothly and evenly, then try blending it in with your fingers. 
That is the best advice I have, but I am a beginning makeup artist as well.
