Spooky Halloween Makeup

Do you guys like Halloween?  I think it's a fun holiday and I am eagerly looking forward to coming years as my children get older and get more excited about dressing up.
My sister here is in college and was looking for more of a sophisticated dress-up costume.  We decided on painting a creepy/elegant skull onto her face.  Here are a few photos of the steps I took.

My mother painted our faces all the time growing up with regular old non-toxic acrylic craft paint.

It comes off pretty well with some soap and warm water and some scrubbing.  You could use vaseline as well.  Just be very careful around the eyes.

For some reason, I love this picture.  A beautiful skeleton sitting at my kitchen table :)

And here is the full effect along with one painted arm.  What do you think?  What will you guys be dressing up as?  

Thanks for dropping by!
