Dia de Los Muertos is a Mexican holiday in line with celebrations of All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day.

It has religious roots and it involves family and friends gathering together to pray, remember, and talk about late friends and family members who have passed on.

This is a hauntingly beautiful makeup look that is tied with a rich history. Excited to go through this list? We are too! Let’s get started.
