Bow face painting tutorial (Makeup Monday)

It's been a while since my last post and for that I am sorry. I've been extremely busy with various projects but, I wanted to stop and share a little Step By step face painting Tutorial with you. I don't normally share these types of tutorials so, enjoy this little gem as a special holiday Easter gift from me to you.

Step 1. Pull out your favorite One stroke split cake. I've used Cupcake Arty cake given to me by
Step 2. Using a #10 Filbert load the darker side of your splitcake in order to richer color. Make a circle using the flat part of your brush.
Step 3. Using the tip of the brush start at the center of your circle and as you come out flatten your brush down to make the sides of the bows. Make a 3 on the right side and and E on the left side.
Step 4. Color in your bow
Step 5. Make the tails of your bow
Step 6. Using a #1 script liner load your brush with black and outline your bow with a thin line.
Step 7. Using a #3 round load your brush in grey and add some shading. While the paint is still wet take a 1/4 DM Stippler dry brush and drag the grey paint to blend it out.
Step 8. Load the lighter colors from your split cake onto your filbert and add some highlights. Take more of the darker paint and blend so there are no definite lines.

TADA you are finished with your beautiful bow.

You can always simplify this by leaving off the tails and forgoing the shading portion if you are in a rush. Makes a great base bow for tons of designs including Minnie Mouse.

I hope you are able to use this on your next event.

Frozen face painting designs

The movie Frozen has been huge on the birthday party season lately. I came up with a quick Frozen inspired face painting tutorial in December but, it's just not enough to have only one design readily available to my little clients so I have been working on my character cheek art designs.

I have come up with a cute little Olaf design that all the kiddos love. It's pretty fast and easy.
Here is my Queen Elsa face painting design

and my Anna face painting design

 These are anime inspired designs. I love to take a classic princess and throw a little anime in her eyes. The simple lining also gives it that same feeling. I do love painting realism but, when it comes to cartoons why not go all out and really make them fun to look at.

I hope you are inspired to create your own version of these characters much like I was.

Happy Painting my painty friends,
