Unicorn face painting

As a face painter one of the most beloved designs is the Unicorn. It's mystical and magical. Everything that face painting is to a child so, I have tried and tried to master it but, was never quite happy with my design. I decided instead of looking only at other face painters designs for inspiration it was time to look the horse in the face so to speak and model my Unicorn after an actual horse.
That was all I needed to realize what I needed to do to make it work. I sketched a design in my sketchbook and found a model and this is what I came up with. I'm really happy with her.
 Sometimes our best source of reference is nature itself.

What do you think?

Covergirl Stay Fabulous Outlast 3 in 1 foundation Review

This foundation is a 4 star foundation.
*It lasts and lasts all day
*Is a medium to full coverage
*Dries to a powder like finish without the powdery look
*Blends great with a beauty blender or fingers
*Moderate range of colors

I would have given this 5 stars if it weren't for the pinky undertones and if it blended easier with a brush. Other than that this is a fantastic foundation that I will purchase again and again.

Toy Story face painting tutorial

This design was put together rather quickly as a special request. It's a slideshow style tutorial and no I'm not speaking in it. I will be going back to my regular talking tutorials but just wanted to share with you.
Enjoy and Happy painting,

Monkey face painting tutorial

So many have requested a boys face painting design from me so, I have been thinking and thinking about it and thought I would try to give you some designs that children often ask for but always seems to stump the artist.
 The first of these for me was a Monkey design. So many monkey face painting designs are scary looking so I thought I would try to come up a family friends party  design for you. I hope you enjoy this tutorial and if you have any requests please leave them here on my blog.

Happy Painting,
Shawna :)
