Spider Face Paint Tutorial:
Step 1. Using a white eyeliner or a small detail brush and the white from the Mont Marte Face n Body palette in Bright, sketch out a tear drop shape around the eye
Step 2. Using a white eyeliner or white from the Face n Body palette in Bright, sketch out the larger portion of the mask shape, creating a curve from the top of the hairline to the chin.
Step 3. Using the white from the Mont Marte Face n Body palette, fill in the inner shape around eye.
Step 4. Fill in the outer mask shape using the red shade from the Mont Marte Face n Body palette in Bright. You can blend and add more colour using the TAG sponge if needed.
Step 5. Using a detail brush and the black from the Mont Marte Face n Body Palette in Bright, create half of a spider and legs in the middle of the face.
Step 6. Once the red paint is dry, you can then create lines to make a web on top of the red paint once the red paint is dry. Opt for a small liner brush and black face paint for this.
Step 7. Finish the large spider design on the other side of the face using the black from the Face n Body palette in Bright.
Step 8. You can either repeat the mask design on the other side of the face, or create a new look, such as a simple web and spiders using the black from the Face n Body palette in Bright.
Step 9. You can highlight curves on the design of the spider using a detail brush and the white from the Kids Face Painting palette in Bright.
Step 10. Add finishing highlights to the mask by using the same white from the Kids Face Painting in Bright
Now you have your completed look! You could create the mask either using the Kids Face Painting palette in Bright or the Face n Body palette in Bright.
