I must say Pinterest is an amazing tool. A few years ago searching for tattoo ideas I stumbled upon Sugar Skulls.. I was enamored with these beautifully coloured designs, after searching I discovered a make-up concept. Thanks to Pinterest I started an inspiration board and just pinned things when I stumbled upon them. Shift forward a few years after pondering, thinking and waiting for the right time, I see a message pop up on my Facebook feed, a make-up artist looking to pull together a sugar skull photo shoot. So I jumped on it after talking about it forever. What an amazing team.. Rose from Make-up by Rosemary who created the beautiful and unique make-up looks and my lovely and talented stylist Heather who was in charge of hair. Last but not least our 3 lovely models who were game for this unique creative shoot. Sometimes you have to remember there is never going to be a “good” time. You just have to learn to make time! Can’t wait for the next creative shoot!
Little history on Sugar Skulls:
The Mexican sugar skull is the most popular symbol of Day of the Dead. This tradition of celebrating Dia de los Muertos started over 3,500 ago by the Aztecs who practiced a month-long celebration that honored those who had died and welcomed their spirits back to earth for a visit. During this ritual, they would often display skulls that they had collected as symbols of life, death, and rebirth. As time went on sugar became the go to for creating these beautiful and colourful skulls.
