How to create a blue monster face paint look in 7 easy steps


Step 1. Outline some monster teeth on one side of the face either using a white eyeliner pencil or using a small Taklon paint brush and the white from the Mont Marte Face n Body Bright palette.

Step 2. Using the blue from the Mont Marte Face n Body Palette in Bright, outline and fill in a blue burst shape around the eye and onto cheek, avoiding the white teeth designs.

Step 3. On the inside of the blue burst shape, use more of the blue with from the Mont Marte Kids face Painting Palette in Bright, and start shaping out sharp curved angles.

Step 4. Mix the blue and white colours from the Mont Marte Face n Body palette in Bright, and fill in the inside of the blue monster shape, avoiding the eye and eyelid.

Step 5. Next go in with the blue shade from the Kids Face Painting Crayon in Neon and apply it to the undereye and on the eyelid. Top it off by mixing the blue and white shades in the Kids Face Painting palette in Bright. You can now also fill in the teeth designs using the white shade from the Face n Body palette in Bright.


Step 6. Now to blend! Using a brush, blend out the light blue into the dark blue to soften the edges.

Step 7. Now, taking the black from the Face n Body palette in Bright, go around the monster shape and teeth and add details in.


For a finishing touch or an alternate look, you can go in directly to the blue and white shades in the Kids Face Painting palette in Bright. Using the sponge by TAG, swipe/dab across the other eye to the side of face where hairline begins. You can also apply blue to the lips to complete the look!
