Unicorns are my most wanted on the job designs. I've struggled with them for a long time, until I learned this simple way to paint them. So let's learn how to face paint a Christmas unicorn!

Christmas Unicorn Face Paint Design

Step 1

Filbert brush is my go to brush for painting unicorns. First I paint a circle and then with the tip of the brush I paint nose.Connect them together and we have a nice shape of unicorn head.

Step 2

With same brush paint an ear, horn and chest for our Christmas unicorn.

Step 3

I've made myself this split cake for Christmas designs, candies or unicorn hair. With small flat brush I painting hair, the two colors giving it dimension.

Step 4

Global Borneo is great for painting holly, and paradise beach berry red is my favorite.To make our unicorn more festive I painted him a "Santa hat".Add some red on cheeks to.

Step 5

There are hundred ways to paint eyes, shown here are my two favorites. Use small round brush No1 and DFX black for crisp clean lines.

Step 6

Last thing to do for our Christmas unicorn is outlining, adding swirls, starburst and glitter. I hope you try this design!
