This design created by Instagram designer Pigeon Pie features a stunning display of florals and vines. With makeup from brands like Kat Von D Beauty and Nyx Cosmetics, you can recreate a similar look with some time and practice.

Mexicanas were all over celebrating their culture and country over the weekend for Día de la Independencia. This face designed and created by Long Beach-based artist María Pérez is a stunning take on the celebrated skull to copy/paste for your next big Halloween party.

Something about this skull gives off major Abuela’s sofá vibes and I don’t hate it. There’s something absolutely stunning and haunting about the way Vanessa Davis, a U.K-based Mexican makeup artist, collects the floral designs around her subjects face to create a skull.

The one that used Kat Von D.

Mashing together equal parts Japanese and Mexican culture, this image gives us the Little Mermaid skull vibes we never knew we needed.

La Doña skull vibes.

La Spektator’s design of a sophisticated skull lady seems easy enough to nail down once you’ve got the makeup design down. For a similar sweet and classic look, get your skull face down and pair with a classic 50s-inspired pencil dressed.

La Mexicana.

Mexican makeup designer Alondra brings all of the vibes of her culture to this look that can be pretty easy to recreate for other countries once you’ve figured out the design of its flag.

This devastatingly elaborate display.

This sugar skull queen has eyes that are poppin’.

The skull that’ll be perfect for your Friday look.

Heart, are you there? It’s me, Maria. You’ve been damaged for so long. This healing process is not what we thought it would be. It’s slow and it’s selfish, yet it keeps us strongly rooted in our convictions and sanity. How did we become so jaded? Let’s stay in touch and stay balanced, yeah?
