Are you in need of some Halloween face paint ideas? We can help you turn your child into a wizard with this amazing halloween face paint idea and simple steps
Halloween is a magical time of year when children get to dress up as their spooky heroes, and if your child loves wizards, we’ll help you turn them into one with the wave of a face-paint brush with one of our favourite Halloween face paint ideas.
To paint the wizard, find a comfortable place to work and cover surfaces in case of spillages. Using a water-based face paint is best as they wash off easily with soap and water. Face paint is safe to use on most skins, but always do a patch test of the paint on the back of your child’s hand. If there is no reaction in an hour or so it should be safe to use.
To create the wizard face paint idea you will need:
- A pot of clean water
- Water-based face paint in white, blue, yellow, orange, gold and silver
- Face painting sponges
- 1 thick paintbrush
- 1 medium paintbrush
- 1 thin paintbrush
Start by sponging white paint all over your child’s face, then blend blue into the eye sockets and on the forehead. Blend yellow onto the nose and cheeks. Blend blue into the sides of the face and around the chin. Use the orange on the yellow sponge to highlight the cheeks and parts of the forehead. Try to keep the colours delicate.
Mix up some darker blue paint and, with a medium brush, paint fine arching eyebrows. Start the eyebrow line below the natural brows on the side of the nose. Sweep the line up and above the real eyebrows before finishing on the natural brow.
Paint a line under the eyes and create some zigzag lines at the corners of the eyes. Use gold and silver paint as well as blue.
Arty Tip: You can paint a white drooping moustache and beard if you want your model to be an old wizard!
Paint a wizard logo on your child’s forehead, like a lightning bolt or a star and moon. Paint stars on the wizard’s cheeks and add glitter to make the face paint look even more magical.
