Creating a Sugar Skull is actually fairly easy, as long as you have about an hour and the patience to get it done.  I use basic Halloween face paint in white, red, and green to create this look, creating pink for the flowers by mixing the white and red.  Get a smooth eyeliner pencil to fill in the dark circles around your eyes and the petals around the circles.

There are a couple of key pieces to the Sugar Skull that must be included - the dark eyes with floral border, the floral chin, and dark nose.  I think the Cult Gaia crown finishes the look perfectly, especially when worn with the hair down and slightly curled.
