How To Face Paint A Lion?

By Hollie Copeland

Face painting has become a very popular art in the past few years. People from every age group, be it adults, or kids, love to paint their faces at different occasions. To paint your face, you need to be creative, as it will give you a completely different look. Mostly, people prefer going to professionals to get their face painted.

Face painting can be a lot of fun, but it can also be a lot of hard work. Finding face painting ideas that have not already been done many times before is very difficult.

Painting your face depends on how good you are with brushes and strokes. Kids and adults both love to paint their faces as animals. Cats, mouse, zebras and lions are really famous designs in face painting. Face painting is a good idea to spend your weekend and if you want to draw an animal face, you should go for a lion face.

Prepare yourself and arrange everything that is required for face painting. Your face paints should be presented on a nice and clean towel. You should have a good supply of water, and do not forget to have brushes, and sponges to clean your face. If you are using water paints, you do not have to use any kind of moisturiser on your face before painting. Water paints are not harmful for skin. Initially, use a sponge to apply the base colour. The sponge should not be too wet, and make sure you are using a damp sponge.

To get the perfect colour, let the first coat dry, and then apply the second one. If, you trying to attempt a complicated design involving different colours, always apply the lighter colour in the beginning. Remember that this is your first time, you cannot get a perfect look, so keep the strokes even, and you will get better with practice and passage of time.

Yellow is the first colour that you need to use in order to create a base. Start painting your forehead yellow. Also, cover half of your cheeks, under the jaw line and chin with the yellow colour. Next, you have to use the white paint very carefully. Let the yellow paint dry first. Use white colour around your nose, rest of the cheeks, up onto the lids and under your eyes.

And if the body paint is not possible, try to use costumes with your face painting for an incredible combination. Find simple costumes that do not need spending a lot of money.

Face painting is not a very hard thing to do. You need to practice a lot to get the perfect design however, you can start with easy designs, and once you get comfortable with strokes, and paint brushes, you can try something new.
