Today I wanted to share the more requested face painting designs that we offer. As part of my ongoing series on tips, tricks and ideas for face painting at birthday parties and other special events, I wanted to show you that these six designs are a great way to get started with face painting!
The top 2 faces that I paint are butterflies and Spiderman. Add in a kitty, puppy, tiger and an angel, and you have six fun but simple face painting ideas that will cover both boys and girls.
I’ve shared a tutorial for a beautiful butterfly face paint along with some alternative butterfly face painting for boys in past posts. One of those designs includes a fun take on Spiderman but most boys still prefer a full face Spiderman face paint like the one above. This single eye butterfly design is a great option for the girls and can be painted in their favorite color. Add glitter and matching lips and you are all set!
The puppy and kitty face paint designs are a great idea for little faces as they do not entail a lot of paint. Less paint makes for easier removal. The designs avoid the eyes for the most part but are still super cute!
A tiger face paint is so universal! Boy or girl, big or small…it is requested by all! Don’t be afraid to offer the tiger design in colors other than orange. Those colors are traditional but a blue or purple sparkly tiger is just adorable!
Finally, we have the angel face paint. I think this gets requested due to the blue lips! Who doesn’t love a blue glitter lip? My example is in a soft turquoise but use the blue you have in your kit. Adding a touch of white to the sponge on top of the blue will give you the option of a lighter blue.
Get started with face painting by practicing these designs. All of them will teach you basic strokes and from there you can work on more complicated designs. My other posts in this series will help you with using a sponge and some simple brushstrokes that will have you painting in no time! You can also read all about a basic list of supplies and an easy face painting station.
