HOW TO: PUMPKIN FACE PAINTING

Stuck for inspiration this year? Never fear, we’re here to help. With our quick and easy face painting tutorial you’ll be the family’s go-to artist. Just like the fairy godmother in Cinderella you’ll be working your magic on a pumpkin princess and all in less than 10 minutes.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
Face paint (orange, yellow, black & green)
Brushes
Sponges
Water

STEP 1:
Using a clean, damp sponge apply the first layer of orange face paint. Create a soft ‘M’ shape over the forehead and brows – this will be the base layer for the pumpkin top.

STEP 2:
Now using only the corner of the sponge, create the illusion of pumpkin ridges by adding yellow streaks – this will add texture and dimension.

STEP 3:
Now switching to a dark green paint and a fine-line brush, draw two small leaves either side of the cheeks. If you’re feeling a flush of artistic confidence, shade them in with a light green.

STEP 4:
With the same two shades of green paint and mirroring the technique for the leaves, create the stalk of the pumpkin in the center of the forehead.

STEP 5:
Using the black paint and a freshly washed brush, outline the pumpkin’s edges, ridges, stalk and leaves.

STEP 6:
If you’re still awash with artistic flair, go back to using the sponge and fill-in the shape with a dab of yellow, this will highlight the natural tones of the pumpkin skin.

And with a bibbidi bobbidi boo, you have an adorable pumpkin princess.
