Monster Face Paint

Here's a Halloween face paint I did on myself last week! It's inspired by monsters and dinosaurs!

1 Using a white eyeliner plot your basic shape.
2 Sponge a yellow face paint onto the high points of the face (forehead, nose, and cheekbones) and a green face paint around the edges, sides of the nose, and around the eyes. Use a white face paint to fill in the talons/horns.
3 To even out the colour and add shading and depth, go over the face paint with matte eyeshadows in complimentary shades of green and yellow. I used a black shadow and a blending brush to further define around the horns, contours, and eye area, including bags under the eyes.
4 Use a black face paint to loosely outline the design. Use quick and fluid brush strokes to achieve clean lines. Define the brow bone, line the eyes, add gnarly nostrils, and add detail and interest with lines and dots.
5 Highlight and add further detail with a white paint.
6 If you choose to, you may now add a light foundation to the exposed skin.
7 Press an irridescent glitter on the tops of the cheekbones and on all of the horns. Be strategic with your glitter placement to compliment the makeup, not overwhelm it!
8 I finished with a yummy smelling lip balm to keep my lips looking hydrated and fresh!
