Sugar Skull & Awareness Makeup

In this sugar skull inspired makeup the awareness ribbon is presented in a unique way. There are countless diseases that take the lives of people every day. We look at the ribbon as a symbol of hope and as a way to raise awareness. The sugar skull symbolizes death, but in a positive manner.  I chose to celebrate the lives of those early departed friends instead of mourning. In this project I take the symbolism of a sugar skull and intertwine it with different awareness ribbons.
