Ursula Makeup Face Paint Tutorial
To begin, load your Kabuki brush with Lavender and using a circular motion, apply to the entire face and neck. You may continue to the shoulders, arms etc... if you choose.
On a side note, I did cover my eyebrows. This step is not necessary but does produce a better end result. There are many different ways to cover eyebrows, from wax to glue. But that's a whole different tutorial for another time.
Using your blush brush and purple powder, add contouring to the nose, neck, cheekbones, jaw line and forehead. It's amazing what a little contouring can do.
Continue with the same brush but this time switch to your hot pink powder.
Next, load your filbert brush with metallic blue and paint the eyelids and a little blue under the eye.
For this step, you can use your makeup brushes and begin shading the blue eyelids. You will use black and blue powders. Be sure to keep the darkest color on the edge. Next, load your #4 round brush with black and paint in the eyebrows as shown.
Load your #4 round brush with red and paint the lips. I have pretty thin lips, so I chose to paint my lips to appear larger than they actually are.
Next, load your #4 round brush with black and give the design a little beauty mark. Then, take a step back to admire your work. Add more contouring wherever needed. You can also add additional highlights with your Paradise white.
Finally, add eyelashes and if you aren't using a wig, giver the hair a spray of white hair spray.I went ahead and painted the shoulders and arms to complete the look.
I really enjoyed this design and I hope you did too!
