Trolls Movie Face Paint Design by Ana Cedoviste

In this step by step tutorial, I will show you how to face paint Poppy, a Trolls Movie character which is super adorable! Follow along with me or create your own unique Troll design!

Step 1

Find a reference photo of your favorite Troll and sketch it out by copying the shape and details.

Step 2

Paint the skin and hair of the troll. I used Mehron Paradise Paint in Light Pink for the skin tone and Mehron Paradise Paint in Dark Pink for the hair and nose.

Step 3

Add details. I painted the eyes using Mehron Paradise Paints in white. I used Mehron Paradise Paint in Nuance Sky for the dress and flowers in the hairband and Mehron Paradise Paintsin Amazon Green for the hairband. For details on the dress, I used Mehron Paradise Paintsin teal. 

Step 4

I outlined everything by using Mehron Paradise Paint in Black. I also added details on the eyes and mouth. 

Step 5

With dark brown eyeshadow, I added shadows and depth to the design by looking at a reference photo. At the end, I have added some daises and green swirls.

That is all! I hope you like it!

Love, Ana

Trolls Face Paint Design


My name is Ana but on social media I use the nickname "Cedoviste," which is a combination of two words in my language: čedo (kid, child) and čudoviše (monster), and I really am monster kid - creative, silly, cheerful but also strange, creepy and scary.

I am a self-taught artist living in Montenegro, a very, very small country on the Balkans (former Yugoslavia) with around 660.000 citizens. It is very rare for people here to do body art professionally, so I work a full time job in HR and body art is my hobby that takes time as much as full time job. :D

My favorite type of expression illusion makeup body art. I just love making illusions and seeing people's reactions. I also enjoy creating different characters that are just perfect for Halloween season.
