For this tutorial all you need is the following items from Vicious Malicious:

 

Manic Panic Flash Lightening Bleach Kit

 

Manic Panic Vampire Red Hair Dye (Other Colours Work Equally Well)

1. Firstly you must ensure your hair is pre lightened, clean and dry!

2. Next put protective gloves on, to avoid any stains on the hands.

3. Apply manic panic hair dye to the root area first, using a tint brush.

4. Follow through to the ends, spreading the dye evenly throughout the hair.

5. Clamp the dyed hair up out of the way.

6.  Using the Manic Panic ‘Dye Away’ wipe, wipe off any skin that may have got on the skin.

image0157. Wash off the dye after approximately 25-30 minutes depending on the thickness of your hair. As you can see I only died the top half of my hair and all of the hair is now red. This is because my hair was so light the red hair dye ran throughout the rest of my hair as I washed it. This saves hair dye so you can reapply once it starts to fade.

8. Dry and style how you wish and voilà bright red hair.

Q-Tips (If at any point during the process you feel you have made an error you would like to remove, then use a Q-tip to gently rub off the colour in that area)

Step 1 – A popular hair style for Dia De Los Muertos is to tie your hair into a very high messy pony tail. Get a bit of a poof in the front and try to get as much volume as you can in the hair it should be wild yet sexy.

Step 2 – Apply the white face colour over your entire face except for a circle area around each eye. I applied a very thin layer however you can apply it as thick as you want.

Step 3 – Draw an outline around your eye with the black colour, this is supposed to be your eye socket so it should be in a rectangle/ovalish shape with rounded edges. I like to draw it around my eyebrows to make it easier but you can also choose to color your eyebrows with the white paint and draw a smaller eye socket. It’s okay to botch it a little like I did because you will be filling it in.

Step 4 – Fill in the outline with the black paint.

Step 5 – Outline the eyes with the colour of your choice, I chose Red because it creates a nice contrast.
PHOTO 8

 

Step 6 – Choose another color to draw the “Petals” around the eyes. I chose Blue. Try not to draw the petals too big or they will be difficult to draw around the nose area and may end up making the eyes appear close to each other.

Progress so far

Step 7 – Using the black colour draw the nose like you would see on a skull, I keep a thin space for the bone but many people fill that in, if you find that easier you can fill it in and it will look fine.

Step 8 – I followed with a simple design on each side of the nose.
PHOTO 12

 

Add on to the design how you like, you can use this as a guide or make up your own design. Common designs include flowers or dots.

Another common design is putting a simple flower on your chin

Progress so far (notice how I coloured my lips white, I meant to do that in the beginning but I forgot. :P)
PHOTO 16

 

Step 9 – Draw a line on each side of your mouth and begin drawing lines on your lips and past. These are the teeth, many people forget that and draw them either too close or too far. They should resemble the teeth on a skull.

Step 10 – On the forehead there is usually a simple design I favor the Spider web design. Draw a line going straight up your forehead and begin drawing lines extending out ending at your hairline.

Step 11 – Fill in the lines with small lines going across, creating the web design.

And you’re done! Here is a picture showing the face paint and the wild hair style.

If you use face colours similar to the ones I used DO NOT make my mistake and try to wash it off with soap and water! This will smear and smudge it all over your face!! Instead use the cotton balls to remove it Zoolander style, it works much better and is much less messy.
