a few months back, when one of my clients asked me to do a Dia De Los Muertos inspired makeup on her for Halloween, I got really curious! I've seen a lot of these artistic painted faces of what seems to be a skull incorporated with a lot of flowers & little swirly things... but I never really took a time to look it up... what is this Dia De Los Muertos thing really all about??

when I googled it, I got pretty interested & more amazed by the whole thing.... then I got the itch to do one on my self....

before I show you the result of my attempt at the Dia De Los Muertos look, here are a few of my favorite images of the said art... mostly are by Sylvia Ji.. I used some of these pictures as inspiration for this look....

Sylvia Ji is an artist whose work has a heavy influence from Mexico, especially from sugar skull art... see her bio here

these are just a few of my faves... there's a lot more that are pretty awesome....


  1. I love Sylvia Ji I did an essay on her paint 'Midnight Sun' (:
