Easy Face Painting Ideas and Methods

You are at the right place if you are new to face painting but want to create beautiful art work. No matter how young or professional your models and audience are – you will delight them with these tips!

Use Sponges

Sponges are easy on the skin and easy to use. Make sure that the sponge has a good amount of paint on it. Apply rather lighter paint first and use dark paint or even black and a brush to create more interesting textures on the single color foundation.

Use Few Paints

Most of the above shown examples just used two to four colors. So you don’t need to aim for too many colors and difficult combinations. Some of the above examples have however mixed colors which might be a bit difficult for beginners. Keep it simple.

Use Colors and Paint Abstractly
