8 Ways to Make Your Halloween Skeleton Makeup Feminine & Beautiful

We all know that a skeleton or skull makeup is an absolute classic and timeless Halloween favourite. And with all the amazingly talented makeup artists in the world there are certainly a growing number of ways to make your skeleton makeup stand out when Halloween comes around. Here is a collection of 8 of the most beautiful and unique ways to wear you skull makeup to give you a beautiful and feminine touch on a normally black and white look.

1. A Basic Half-Face Skeleton with a Flower Crown

This look is incredibly easy to recreate and can be done by applying your standard base makeup, a black smokey eye that extends over your eyebrow, and some strategic placement of black lines to one side of your face. Add a crisp red lip to the other half and top it off with a large flower crown! Voila! So simple, so beautiful!

2. A Regular Black & White Skeleton but with Coloured Hair!

Skeleton makeups are so effective and bold on their own that just the simple addition of a bit of colour can seriously make this look POP! Apply your regular black and white skull and then dye your hair a crazy colour (literally any colour will look great with it). Or if you're lucky enough to have light blonde hair throw in some hair chalk which you can wash out the next day! And there is always the option of buying a cool wig for a quick colour change option.

3. Extremely Subtle Skeleton Makeup

4. Bling Sugar Skull Makeup

Technically not a Halloween makeup, but actually a decoration used during Day of the Dead celebrations in Mexico. However, in recent years it has become more common for people to wear something resembling sugar skulls for Halloween. I don't believe this is meant to offend in any way but actually believe that people began wearing this type of makeup as a beautiful alternative to the normal scary skeleton look. Here is an example of a beautiful way to wear a sugar skull, simply by using one feature colour and some sequins - how stunning is this!

5. Glow In The Dark Skeleton Makeup

Once again, this looks more like a Sugar Skull makeup, however you could simply add some glow in the dark products to a regular skeleton makeup for a seriously cool effect! Especially if you are heading out for some night-time trick or treating, or to a Halloween party! You'll definitely stand out on the dance floor with this look!
