1. Start with the medium round brush and the white face paint. Paint a circle to start the shape of the head of the unicorn.

2. Next, add the mouth shape and blend with the circle.

3. Add the ears and the horn.

4. Load your flat brush with the rainbow one stroke. Align the brush so one corner is behind the ear, and at an angle.

5. Swoop down and to a point to create the hair. Add another swoop of color between the ear and the horn.

6. Add a light blue dot for the eye. Then add a dark blue dot on top of that. Using the small round brush and the black, outline the design. Add a black dot in the middle of the blue for the eye. Add eyelashes. Outline the hair by adding lines that curve down.

7. Add white dots and sparklies. Add a star burst to the top of the horn and all around the design. Add a white dot over the blue for the eye.

Easily add glitter by using a spray bottle with water, and spritzing the design lightly at least 12 inches away.  Use a poof-able cosmetic grade  glitter to add evenly all around. Use different colors to really create an effect.
