Dia de los Muertos Face Paint Tutorial
Remember my recent post about visiting YouTubeSpaceLA? Well, this is the first video from that experience! Maya and Jeshua made this adorable video showing how to use the new Crafty Chica Dia de los Muertos Face Paint Kit!
To use the kit, you’ll need to wash and add lotion to your face. Apply the stencils – dip the applicator (or make-up brush) in the paint and dab on the design. The reason I made the stencils is in case you can’t draw well, you just have to apply the stencils and add color. There are flowers, swirls and all kinds of designs to use. After you have the stencil areas finished, you’ll need to fill in the rest with white. The kit comes with a sponge and white face paint, but you can also use a make-up brush for more even coverage. For even deeper, more rich coverage, I would pick up a white Tulip Body Art as well. The kit also comes with a black body art pen, so you can easily outline everything for a nice, profesh look!
