New YouTube Vid Up: Skull Makeup Tutorial

OK you guys, I finally did it!  I just posted a two-part tutorial on YouTube that walks you through the process of applying full-face skull makeup.  You don’t need any special materials, just basic black and white makeup, patience, and a steady hand.  This is my first ever video makeup tutorial… and video editing… and web video, ever!  Hope it’s helpful!

Last Minute Halloween Makeup

Looking for a last minute Halloween idea?  Your makeup doesn’t have to be all blood, white pancake and black lipstick.  How about something colorful and dramatic?  This is a look I did several years ago, that could be easily adapted for Halloween.
