You may wish to keep the hair away from the face with a hair band or clips. Always apply the base colour first, using a damp sponge. Make sure that the sponge is not too wet by squeezing out excessive water otherwise the finished result may be streaky. To achieve a deeper colour, allow the first coat to dry and then apply a second coat.

For such designs that have a variety of light and dark colours, one should apply the lighter colours first, if possible. When applying colour with a brush, keep strokes even and work in continuous lines. Avoid the temptation to sketch; confidence comes with practice.

Do take precautions and safety measures. Use such paints that are especially made for the face painting and wash your face right after the party.
