Cute Penguin Cheek Design by Francesca Marchitelli

The penguin is one of the most adorable and loved animals in the world.
With a few simple steps, here's a cute penguin cheek design that kids will love! Follow along with this face paint tutorial to create your own penguin face paint design.


Step 1:

Paint a rectangle with rounded edges using white face paint

 Step 2:

With a fine-tipped brush, paint a fairly thick outline with black face paint and start sketching the penguin's head as in the photo.

 Step 3:

Paint the wings by making two small triangles using white and outline them in black. Paint the hat in green face paint  by drawing a rounded triangle on the penguin's head. Complete the hat with a whitestrip at the base, and a small black pompom at the top. With the same green face paint, paint the scarf around the penguin's neck and decorate it with thin, black vertical stripes. Paint the eyes and small feet in black.

 Step 4:

Decorate the hat drawing thin stripes and dots. Paint the cheeks with pink and the beak with orange face paint by making a small rhombus. Paint a pink heart-shaped balloon, outline it in black, and add highlights using white face paint.

Step 5:

Complete your look by painting some snowflakes scattered on the cheeks and the  nose and add some glitter  to make the design stand out more.
