Day of the Dead/Sugar Skull Face Paint Makeup


Dia De Los Muertos,
also known as the Day of the Dead,  is a Mexican holiday celebrated to honor ancestors and people in our life that have passed away. Face painting what is called a “sugar skull” is very popular for this particular holiday because it represents the Calavera. A Calavera is a representation of the human skull normally made of sugar or clay and it is customary to decorate it and paint it similar to the way we do when we paint faces. The holiday is celebrated on the full weekend of Oct 31st, Nov 1st and Nov 2nd so there are many parties that use the “Day of the Dead” as the theme of their event and sometimes I am hired to do face painting and makeup for parties specifically geared toward the holiday itself.

If you are interested in getting your face painted or make up done to honor the Day of the Dead holiday, Call today! 888-750-7024

    • Hello Aron! I am so sorry I am getting to this so late but just so I have the answer out there and you know, we charge $50 for a solo face painting/fantasy makeup appointment and $80 for 2. Me and all of my face painters are very advanced face painters and makeup artists and we do beautifully detailed sugar skulls and day of the dead masks. If you’d like to make an appointment for next year or anytime in between give us a call at 888-750-7024. Thank you! Keep in mind we also do birthday parties, company events and more all over the southern California area so keep us in mind all year long for face painting, balloon twisting, clown entertainment, princess characters and photo booth rentals.
