Glam Skull

Posted by on


Today, we’ll change it up a bit by using mostly shimmer powders and glitter gel to glam up our design. Glam face designs have been on the rise lately, so let’s give this Glam Skull a go.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  1. Ben Nye Golden Apricot Lumiere Luxe Shimmer Powder
  2. Ben Nye Bronze Lumiere Luxe Shimmer Powder
  3. Ben Nye Aztec Gold Lumiere Luxe Shimmer Powder
  4. Global Face Paint – Dark Blue
  5. Blue GlitterMark
  6. Global Gold Glitter Gel
  7. Mehron Mark Reid Signature Round Brush #4
  8. Smoothie Blender
  9. Mehron Paradise Petal Tip Brush
  10. Self Adhesive Rhinestone Blings

The Application:


Begin by loading your Mehron Paradise Petal Tip Brush with Ben Nye Golden Apricot Lumiere Luxe Shimmer Powder to start the outline of your skull.


Next, use your Smoothie blender and add color and shading with both Ben Nye Bronze Lumiere Luxe Shimmer Powder and Ben Nye Aztec Gold Lumiere Luxe Shimmer Powder. The darker color will be applied to the edges and side of the nose.


Continue outlining the skull in the darkest powder (apricot) and add lines for the teeth.

Continue adding your design lines. I chose to do a symmetrical design. You will paint the nose and also add to the teeth lines you made before. Add the Aztec gold powder to the lips with a smoothie blender.


Next, apply the Global Holographic gold glitter gel to the design. Next, take your blue GlitterMark and outline the design. I outlined everything, including the teeth and nose.  Finally, apply bling as shown.

This design is a good way to start practicing other techniques and skills. Powders can be a great addition to add to your kit. I know I love them!
