Think Skull Makeup Has To Be Scary? She Gives The Halloween Trend A Glamorous Spin.

Faces painted to look like ghoulish skulls are a common sight every Halloween, but this woman’s unique creations are much more stunning than creepy.

London-based makeup artist Vanessa Davis, also known as the Skulltress, is incredibly talented when it comes to creating glamorous, skull-inspired looks. She found her inspiration a couple of years ago when, for her Halloween costume, she decided to use makeup to transform her face into a skull. It turned out so pretty that she’s been making new variations ever since. They’re seriously amazing.

Check out some of her most incredible looks below, some of which take six to 10 hours to complete!

Seahorse Skull 🌊🐎 These ethically sourced Seahorse Exoskeletons are from @fasanarock These beautiful creatures live out their life dancing amongst the corals until they pass away in the ocean and get washed up on shores to then be hand picked by @fasanarock who then preserve their bodies by coating them in a metallic oxide substance through a special chamber using a 🔝Secret method. This creates this beautiful blue toned aura finish and is the same process used to manufacture astronaut space shields!!! 😮Fascinatingly, Seahorses mate for life. In courtship they dance and display vivid colours to each other. When a seahorse hatches her eggs she hands them over to her partner and he stashes them in a special pouch, caring for them until they are ready to hatch. No Seahorse is born the same. Just like a human they have their own set of 'finger prints'. Each individual seahorse has a defining characteristic, a small crown on the top of its head which is called a Coral Net, is unique on every seahorse in both its design and size. 🌊🐎 Products used EYES 👀: @suvabeauty 'Fairy Dust' Shimmer Eyeshadow @urbandecaycosmetics Electric Palette @nyxcosmetics Lid Lingerie in 'Morning Sky' @nyxcosmetics_uk Prismatic Eyeshadow in 'Mermaid' Lashes from @eyelureofficial in 'Luxe' SKULL 💀: @danessa_myricks 24 hour Cream Colour in 'Magnetic' & 'Fireworks' highlights are my favourite Dazzliners from @face_lace DÉCOLLETAGE: @glitterinjections Huge Pressed Glitter in 'You Teal Me' Brushes used to create this look @spectrumcollections #skullmakeup #skulltress #skullart #artoftheday #mua #faceart #facepainting #bbloger #makeupoftheday #thehorrorhub #StyleArtists #arts_secret #artwonderful #art_daily #sketch_daly #artsviral #crazymakeups #nyxprofessionalmakeup #skulltress #مكياج #макияж #визажист #maquillaje #calavera #seahorse #メイクアップアーティスト#スカル# ドクロ#ハロウィン
