Facepainting "Then and Now!" by Natalia Kirillova

How long have you been doing face paint? Remember your first drawings? It's great if you have photos of the past. You can make an interesting collage and see how your skills have changed for the better. You compare photos and see that the lines look clearer, added detail and more rhinestones and glitter, even the pictures themselves have become brighter! Try it with me and track your progress! 


Back in 2011, I did not know about the technique of one stroke and drew all the masks of butterflies only with a brush, each color separately. Later I began to learn about the technique of drawing a corner flat brush and began to add more patterns, details and rhinestones - what makes each of your drawing unique and beautiful!


 I want to forget about my first drawing of a cat in 2011 as a bad dream. The cat mask must be inscribed in a circle so that it does not descend below the level of the mouth, otherwise the picture will not look so elegant. And you can add a theme to the picture, on top of my summer cat with flowers, below - winter with snowflakes.


Not everything is so simple with the mask of a tiger. Each line should have its correct direction, and if you add shading - the design will look very realistic!


To properly and beautifully draw the muzzle of a horse - it took me a few years! But now I can do it with my eyes closed, so if you do not get to draw something, you know - you just need to repeat this process 50 times, and your 51st attempt will be much more beautiful! The main thing is not to give up!


For maximize the drama for a monster face pint, increase the size of the teeth and predatory eyes, and the stencil pattern will give the picture a realistic and professional look.


In my designs, I paint dogs very rarely, I like cat masks more, but if I depict a puppy, I try to draw his hair and wide nose in detail.

My name is Natalia, I live and work in Russia, the city of Yaroslavl. I do face painting for 7 years. One of my favorite destinations - belly painting, (so great to see how kids who have recently been in the tummy are already beginning to walk, talk and learn to draw) in my collection of 40 drawings for pregnant women. I've won a lot of face painting contests and now I want to teach you how to create beautiful drawings on faces. The most beautiful thing when you show your child the finished picture to see his shining smile
