Dia de los Muertos Make Up

***Disclosure-I was invited to a Nestle event at a local Fiesta mart.  This is a compensated post.  All opinions stated are my own based on my personal experience.

Have you ever wondered how to do a Dia de los Muertos make up?  Here is a simple step by step for a Catrina:

Step 1-Start by cleaning the face with a baby wipe.

Step 2-Cover the face with white face paint.  You can use a sponge or your index finger works the same.
Make sure to completely cover the entire face.
Step 3-Draw a black circle around the eyes.  You can use an old eye liner.  Or you can use a thin brush with the black face paint.  
You will use the circle as an outline.  Now color in the black circle using black face paint.
You can also use black eye shadow to fill in the circle.
Step 4-Make loops around the border of the black circle.  You can use the liner or thin brush again.
Step 5-Use your thin brush or liner to make a line from one side of the mouth to the other.  Use the lips as your guide.
Step 6-Now make small lines going up and down the line you drew.  Making the lips look like they are sewn together.
Step 7-Color in the loops on the circles with red.  Use a brush or a Q-tip.
This is the final look.  
You can also add black to the tip of your nose for more of the skeleton  look.
