This video demonstrates how to face paint a St Patrick's Day themed cheek art 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: Take a medium brush and some white face paint and outline a shamrock on the cheek. Fill in the inner part of the shamrock in white face paint, then color the inside of that with light green face paint, leaving a bit of white border. Take dark green paint and use it to fill in inside of the light green.
Step 2: Outline the shamrock with a small brush with black face paint.
Step 3: Add green glitter.
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.
