Santa Claus Christmas Face Paint Tutorial
Step 1: The Base
Paint the sky with a blue tones Split Cake and a semicircular sponge. Don't forget to paint the center of the background with the lighter colors to recreate the moon halo. Then, paint a moon at the center of the forehead with a sponge stippler and shimmer white paint.
Step 2: Stencil Time
Step 3: Paint the Trees
Use the dauber sponge and stencil again to create the trees with green tones Split Cake. With the black paint, stencil more houses.
Step 4: Paint the Eyelids
Paint the eyelids with the sponge and the blue tones Split Cake and paint the inner corners of the eyes with the shimmer white. Use another sponge to fill the rest of the eyelids with the lighter green tones of the Split Cake. Clean the edges with a wet wipe if necessary.
Step 5: Add Highlights and Snow
Time to paint highlights, snow and sparkles! Use white face paint and a #3 round brush to paint the falling snow with different sizes dots. Then, use a smaller one like a #2 round brush to paint the sparkles, the highlights of trees and the homes' windows.
Step 6: Paint the Ornaments
With the #2 round brush, use yellow and red paints to create the ornaments of the trees, like balls and stars. Then, with the same brush and white paint, paint some swirls and dots around the eyes to frame the design.
