Dia de Los Muertos is just around the corner and it’s an important cultural celebration in many Latin American and Caribbean countries that honors the dead and our connections to our past. Unfortunately, this very special day has also been culturally appropriated by non-Latinx people. It’s hard to go online around Halloween without seeing a makeup tutorial by a (hopefully) well-meaning non-Latina who, um, doesn’t really know what she’s talking about.
In order to avoid this, we’ve gathered up the 21 best Dia de Los Muertos makeup looks from Latinas. They’re so gorgeous that you honestly won’t believe. From a lighter look to one that’s full of color to the darker side of things, there are plenty of looks to choose from if you’re looking for some inspiration for this year’s Day of the Dead look.
