Sketch 2 circles around the eye area to mimic the skull's eye sockets with your eyeliner or a face paint crayon.

Fill in where the lips meet with a bit of black face paint.

Draw 7 vertical lines down through the lips, starting with the centre line and working outwards. Then draw a curlicue flourish off the edges of each side of the lips. You can omit this part and simply shade the cheeks with little grey on your sponge. The curlicues make this more like a Mexican sugar skull, while the shadow makes it more like a Corpse Bride.

Add as many curlicues as you like, on the chin and the forehead.

Add red petals around the edge of your eye sockets.

If your child has long hair, now let it down. You can add a flower to the hair for an authentic Mexican touch. Now put on the black veil and there you have it: a spooky, scary face paint!
