Talented painter Jorge Monreal paints incredibly beautiful and eerie women with sugar skull designs painted on their faces. The Spanish artist took the traditional Mexican design and adapted it onto this gorgeous work of art.
The sugar skull tradition is often celebrated on the "Dia de los Muertos," or Day of the Dead, in English. The holiday is celebrated annually as a way to honor deceased loved ones. Meant to be a vibrant, beautiful day with food, decorations and crafts, the sugar skull design is one of them. Monreal uses this beautiful design and customizes it, making it fashionable.
Instead of standard makeup, the sugar skull facepaint adds color, beauty and emphasizes definition all over the face. The paintings have lots of shades of color and instead of making it morbid and terrifying, the paintings are beautiful and emotive.
