This video demonstrates how to make a mardi gras themed face paint design:
General Tips: Apply the lighter face paint colors before starting on the darker colors.
How to Use a Face Paint Brush: To load face paint on the brush: dip the brush into a bowl of water and mix it into the face paint to pick up the face paint. Apply the face paint brush in smooth even strokes.
How to Use a Face Paint Sponge: To load face paint onto the sponge: add water to the face paint sponge and dip into the face paint. Make sure that the face paint has a creamy consistency. Remember to try to use the minimum amount of water. First smear the face paint on then dab the face paint with the sponge to get an even opaque coverage.
Step 1: Use a medium brush and outline the eyes with light blue face paint, fill in a bit over the eyes, but not on them.
Step 2: With a medium brush, add dots with lilac face paint around the outside of the mask. Using neon pink face, paint dots in between the lilac dots around the mask. Using a small brush, add a little bit of White dots to highlight the lilac and pink dots.
Step 3: Add white face paint to the eye lids as eye shadow. Use small brush and add small black dots on the inside of the mask. Add blue and opal glitter to the mask.
To Remove Face Paint: Remove the face paint with mild soap and water with a washcloth, baby wipe or paper towel. Remember to keep the face paint out of the eyes.
To Store Your Face Paint: Store the face paint with the lid closed. The face paint should last 18 months after 1st opening.
