When London-based makeup artist Vanessa Davis needed a Halloween costume in a pinch a couple years ago, she decided to DIY a skeleton skull with makeup. Her look was such a hit, she’s since transformed her Instagram account into an inspiration minefield for skeleton makeup looks and started going by the nickname The Skulltress.
She told Allure, “I noticed that the successful makeup accounts specialized in either a particular style or subject, so I chose skulls, which also worked as my heritage is Mexican and English.”
Scroll below for some of her latest works of art — which could take six to 10 hours to complete! — and start teaching yourself how to recreate them so maybe (just maybe) you’ll have it mastered in time for Halloween.
