25 days of Christmas Face Painting Challenge

 I know it is tough trying to come up with ideas for face and body painting when you think you've seen it all or maybe you're just having creative block so, I thought it would be fun to challenge myself to try to paint one Christmas or Holiday design per day starting on December 1st. I will be posting face painting, body art & cheek art designs.

 I will be posting here daily and sharing on Twitter,Instagram and facebook so, you should be able to find my design of the day in one of these places. This is not a contest. It's just for fun and to help inspire each other everyday. I can't wait to start posting I have already been thinking of creative designs.
Here is a little something to get your creative juices flowing....this is not my first design. That will start on December 1st!

Merry Painting,

Dia De Los Muertos Makeup

 Today is Dia de Los Muertos. We celebrate the lives of those loved one's in our lives that have passed away. Today I celebrate the life of my beautiful Grandma Judy. She was the most beloved, amazing, funny, loving, caring, selfless woman I knew. My heart aches for her everyday but, I know she would not want me to hurt so today I will create and paint in her honor. She was always so supportive of my work and thought I was soo talented even when I didn't. She is only gone for a little while and one day we will be reunited in heaven and we will paint and create together. We will laugh and she will hug and kiss me like she always did.

Here are some of the Suagr skull faces I painted or did makeup for this year in honor of Dia de Los Muertos or Day of the dead....Please enjoy and celebrate with me!

This one was inspired by Diego Rivera's Nude with Calla Lilies painting...As most of you may know I love to paint anything related to flowers and nature. This is one of my favorites it is the first in a series of face and body painting Calacas or Sugar skulls in collaboration with Darling Images and Leanne Hare.

This is a couple that I painted to represent the Bride and Groom at the Dia de Los Muertos celebration.
Here is a close-up of the Brides Mask. This one had a ton of glitter and a few crystals added to the sides.
This one is more of a traditional skull or a more masculine version. I tried to keep the mouth more feminine.
and last but not least for sure, this is a more traditional Calaca. It is inspired by many paintings and tattoo art.

 I hope you enjoy and are inspired as I have been by so many in my life. I will continue to paint these beautiful images in remebrance of the beautiful people in life that have passed before us. Happy day of the Dead to you all!
