FOTD Swirl Sugar Skull

About 2 months ago I painted this sugar skull on myself. The response from everyone was so awesome. I wasn't expecting it at all in fact, Heather Banks from Sillyfarm noticed it and asked if she could use it on the website for the month of October. Of course I said yes, what an honor it is for the CEO of the largest Face Paint supply website in the United States to notice your work.

 I love clicking over there and seeing my face there. When I'm feeling insecure about my work I will save this image and look back at it. I don't think I'll ever feel like my work is that great. I always feel as if there is so much more to learn. If I ever stop learning it will be time to leave this business.

 Anyway I do hope you enjoy this Sugar skull or Calavera. I used the Ben Nye lumieres palette, Wolfe White and Deep Raspberry, Starblend black and White and Mehron Celebre pro foundation.

FOTD Venetian style Peacock mask

Every year around this time of year I begin to get flooded with private appointments for Halloween parties and this year was no exception. A look or design that is highly requested every year is a peacock mask. I decided to buckle down and work this design out.

 I pulled out my sequins and gold powder to create this combination of metal and bling. Ben Nye lumieres were used for the base colors and eyes hadows.

I practice on myself rather than a practice head because I like the feel of skin lol! Here are a few selfies taken with my cell phone. I hope you are able to draw inspiration from this design and create something all your own.

Happy Halloween Appointments,
