I'm not that good with makeup, but this year I wanted to try something. As Social Communication student, I love to study traditional cultures and the Mexican is very rich and interesting. La Catrina is the dandy skull figure created by the illustrator José Guadalupe Posada as a joke and it was incorporated to the festivities in Mexico during the day of the dead (día de los muertos), when the people write funny poems, cook sugar skulls and make death something colorful and actually beautiful and joyful when in most of other cultures we tend to mourn about it. Mexico brought color and joy to death and the figure of the Catrina like the Latin comparision of the European Danse Macabre, and she is a sassy classy girl :) In our present days, she would be wearing high heels and would be in fashion events, rocking on her trendy clothes, working on her brand new Louboutin. hahaha... but always very dramatic, a high society depressed woman - a nowadays dandy girl. :)

For my make up's inspiration, I put instead of hearts, some tear shapes. In prison, these shapes could mean several stuff like long sentences or that the criminous murdered people - the more tears, the more murders. A hollow tear means attempted murder. But in other cases a tattooed tear can just mean emotion and sadness. So my Catrina has also some Lana Del Rey on her mood hahaha :)

For makeup I used NYX, Essence, Stargazer and Fenzza eyeshadows, MAC Soulfully Rich lipstick and for the swirls I used liquid eyeliner
