If Dia de los Muertos is a bigger event for you than Halloween, look no further than these social media stars and YouTubers for your makeup inspiration. Their spins on Mexican sugar skull makeup are nothing short of breathtaking. These examples of amazing sugar skull makeup celebrate the Mexican holiday of Dia De Los Muertos. The holiday, which takes place from October 31st to November 2nd, celebrates and honors those who have passed with altars and gifts. The living also dress up in elaborate costumes, sometimes sporting skeletal makeup to bring themselves closer to the deceased. Intricately designed sugar skulls are also made and given as offerings to the spirits.

As detailed as the looks appear, the calaveras are surprisingly easy to create. Check out some fantastic style ideas and skull makeup tutorials below!
