You can dress up your basic tiger design for the upcoming holidays or for children who love shimmer and shine by using metallics instead of the traditional yellow, orange and red face paint. Enjoy this video which features a common tiger design and one of my favorite shimmer split cakes—Brilliant Bling, available through Facepaint.com.

In the video, I also added the white iridescent cosmetic glitter to the eyelids, but normally I omit this step when I’m painting at parties. The tangerine glitter over the Brilliant Bring is one of my favorite effects, and I think you’ll find it’s a great glitter color to add sparkle to tigers.
