21 Día de Los Muertos Makeup Looks You Won’t Believe

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.

Red is a powerful color and has always been my favorite when it comes to any kind of makeup, but especially when it comes to anything Dia de Los Muertos related. This look is particularly gorgeous with those huge flowers all around… along with the big jewels. I mean, COME ON!

3. Mariachi inspiration by @carlalaraphotography

This look is pretty badass and definitely one that you may want to duplicate. I particularly love that the makeup artist matched her model’s hair with some of the colors on the face. That’s a pretty genius way of making everything look cohesive.

4. Total #relationshipgoals by @tat31

If you want to watch with your sweetie, then this look is THE one to duplicate. She’s looking like the perfect Dia de Los Muertos bride and he’s looking like a bonafide fine groom. That’s definitely the way I like it.

Oh my gosh, just LOOK at that huge crown! It’s absolutely beautiful and definitely one that you’ll be impressed by. It might take forever to actually try to make it, but at least you’ll be plenty inspired.

Another look for the couple that likes to costume together, this Dia de Los Muertos look is pretty simple but still gorgeous. All you need is some masterful white and black, and you’ve got yourself an amazing look.

7. Bright color lovers by @elviamakeup

If you’ve got brightly-colored hair (or want some), then this is the look for you. I’m particularly in love with the pink-and-blue combo around the eyes, but the little piece of bejeweled emerald on the nose (that matches the hair) is pretty amazing, too.

8. Blue-green magic by @supernova_mua

Part of what makes this outfit so amazing is the blue and green flowers that accent the makeup decorations on the chest. In order to differentiate things a bit, the actual makeup contrasts with red and yellow colors.

9. Gorgeously dark death by @beautybyshaq

Holy wow! If you’re looking for an incredibly dark and sinister look for Dia de Los Muertos, then look no further. This purple-and-white inspired look is dark and powerful. In fact, it makes you look like a bonafide bruja.

Want something simple but still powerful for the day? Then you might try creating a half-face look for Dia de Los Muertos. This tutorial is pretty easy but definitely something that you can accomplish while still looking fly.

11. Bitten by butterflies by @bettypaz_

If you want something that’s a beautiful combination of Dia de Los Muertos along with your flowery personality, then this is the look you should go for. Butterflies and brightly colored flowers really make me think of spring even though, well, it’s technically autumn.

12. A very blue existence by @galletitagus

This lady looks pretty darn incredible in her all white and blue makeup look. I especially love the glitter all around as well as the bright red flower that accents her hair. This look is particularly complimented by the blue contacts and the white wig.

13. A very easy look by @divinebeauty_ag

If you want something totally subtle, then this look is the one you should try. It allows you to experiment with your Dia de Los Muertos makeup but without making it ALL about that. It’s pretty flawless.

14. A little dose of color by @lilysarte

lilysarte/Instagram

Just a little bit of color is all you need in order to rock a slightly more unique Dia de Los Muertos look. I really love how there’s a little bit of pink, a little bit of yellow, and just a little bit of purple here.

15. Dark colors by @crimsonroseinbloom

The bright green contacts really stand out in the middle of this look that is accentuated with dark fall colors. The autumn oranges and browns really give a lot of drama to this Dia de Los Muertos face.

16. Bright colors and loving it by @muaashleyrivera

muaashleyrivera/Instagram

Can we all say WOW? The flower crown that accents this Dia de Los Muertos look is pretty fabulous. The bright yellows and orange really add a little something special to the dark orange and reds of the eyes.

17. Everyone loves sunflowers by @mellowpaloma

mellowpaloma/Instagram

This is definitely one Dia de Los Muertos look that you can wear any time of year, I think. It might not be totally appropriate but the sunflowers seen in this makeup look area really lovely way to add some brightness to the entire face.

18. The beauty of sunset by @greenyartedecorazon

If you really want to commit to an absolutely breathtaking Dia de Los Muertos look, then you absolutely have to look at this one. It’ll take some time to put together but then you will absolutely be THE queen of the party.

19. Subtle and amazing by @funmakeup505

You don’t have to go with a full Dia de Los Muertos look in order to capture the essential beauty of this holiday. This makeup application primarily uses black and little accents of white in order to make it work. You can still see most of the skintone, which gives it a really unique quality.

20. All about the roses by @msirinagonzalez

msirinagonzalez/Instagram

Didn’t I mention that roses were my favorite? This is a look that I had a few years ago and it remains my absolute favorite. I especially loved my eyelashes here, which had subtle little white raindrops and added a little something special to the look. Oh, and that rose on my neck…

21. A classic look by @fergie

fergie/Instagram

Back in 2013, Fergie nearly broke the internet with her phenomenal Dia de Los Muertos look. Although hubby Josh Duhamel also had one to match, it’s hers that is truly special. And, I mean, if any celeb can rock this one, it’s definitely her!

People Are Accusing Kat Von D Beauty of Scamming Customers With Their Famous Tattoo Liners

People Are Accusing Kat Von D Beauty of Scamming Customers With Their Famous Tattoo Liners

Yes, we know. Makeup maven Kat Von D has been long been on the outs with fans who once adored her. In addition to the slew of offenses stacked up against her, Von D’s recent declaration that she would not be vaccinating her son after his birth certainly has not done her any favors.

Now, the tattoo artists’ latest controversy means she’s enduring another fall from her fans’ graces.

Beauty enthusiasts are currently accusing Von D of scamming them out of their money with the Trooper Tattoo Liner

Cheyenne Vaughan / Facebook

At the end of last month, Facebook user Cheyenne Vaughan accused Von D’s makeup brand of “putting a sample-size eyeliner into a longer-shell tube,” and then selling it to customers for “triple the price.”

Vaughan shared a photo of the eyeliner in her post that showed the dismantled product in three pieces. One was a long tube, the other a cartridge that holds the actual product, and the last piece: a cap.

“Yall I’m about to lose my mind right now,” Vaughan wrote in the post. “Kat von D really been putting a sample size eyeliner into a longer shell tube and selling to my dumb ass for triple the price. I’M ABOUT TO LOSE MY MIND RIGHT NOW.”

Facebook users who saw the post were quick to respond to Vaughan.

“That’s what you get for supporting an anti-vaxer,” wrote on user.

Others came to Von D’s defense, asking Vaughan to support her claims with actual facts.

“Did you actually make sure this is factual, by weighing the amount of liquid in each one? I didn’t think so. Wtf is wrong with people??”

And of course, many didn’t waste time in bringing up the fact that Von D is anti-vaccinations.

“Y’all need to stop supporting the anti-Vaxer,” one wrote.

“That’s what you get for supporting an anti-vaxer,” replied another.

Six thousand shares of the post later, and Von D responded with her defense.

@thekatvond / Instagram

In a post to her Instagram account, Von D asserted that she wasn’t cheating customers. In fact, according to her, while the cartridge is the same size for every liner, the amount of ink inside of it differs depending on the liner size.

“The cartridges in both full size liners and mini liners are the same — it’s the amount of product inside each cartridge that is different. So, for example, the product fill on our full size Tattoo Liner is 0.55 ml, while the product fill for the mini is 0.2 ml – thats over DOUBLE the amount of product! Any brand who has an eyeliner with similar component on the market will tell you the same thing. You need that much cartridge space for the pigment to flow out,” she wrote.

See for yourself in the comments section of Von D’s post on whether or commenters are satisfied. Hint: people remain stanning their anti-Vanti-ant-vaxx position.

Selena Quintanilla’s Family Is Creating A Makeup Line In Celebration Of The Tejana Queen

This just in: the late Selena Quintanilla is getting her very own makeup line. I know what you’re thinking: hasn’t this been done before? But no, actually, it hasn’t. While big brands have had Selena-inspired collections, this will be the first full line, and it’s coming straight from the Quintanilla family.

According to The Blast, the queen of Tejano music’s family is launching “Selena Vive,” a full cosmetics line that will include lipsticks, eye makeup, foundations, nail polish, perfume and accessories.

The late singer’s dad, Abraham Quintanilla, is also preparing to trademark the name “Selenaville,” what fans have nicknamed the museum dedicated to the star in Corpus, Christi, Texas, for a possible other cosmetics line.

While a release date hasn’t been set yet for either line, fans are already celebrating.

In 2016, MAC released its Selena collection, which sold out promptly. A year later, Forever 21 similarly starting selling Selena merch.

News of the late singer’s official line comes after Netflix announced they would be working with the Quintanilla family to produce a series on Selena’s life.
