One of the most popular themes for parties is the princess theme. This gorgeous tiara will work with any color scheme, so while this model preferred green, you can easily substitute other color choices based on what the child in the chair would like.

Materials

Paradise lime green face paint
• TAG pearl white
TAG green face paint
Paradise gold face paint
Mehron gold powder
Cosmetic glitter
Diamond FX black face paint
Diamond FX white face paint
#5 round brush
#2 round brush
#1 round brush
Sponge

Tutorial

Load your sponge with Paradise lime green and TAG pearl white. Dab this over the eyelids and sweep the color up and away from the eyes. Use TAG green to emphasize the edge of the eyelids and the outer corner of the eye.

Spritz water onto your Paradise gold and sprinkle a small amount of Mehron gold powder onto it. Mix this in with your #2 round brush and paint a curve over each eyebrow. Create an oval shape in the center of the forehead.

Add curling shapes to fill in the area on either side of the oval. Also add a scalloped upper edge to make the design look like a crown. Add golden teardrops on the sides of the eyes.

Fill in the center oval with lime green, and blend the darker TAG green into the bottom and right side of the oval.

Load your #1 round brush and add fine lines on the lower side of the curls and curves of the tiara. These will simulate a shadow and help the design stand out. Also add lines around the center gem.

Finally, add a dot and white line along the upper edge of the tiara gem, and add some dots and starbursts for sparkle around the tiara.
