Here’s what you’ll need:
- Global Apricot
- Global Magenta
- Paradise Black
- Paradise Lime
- Paradise Light Blue
- Wolfe White
- #4 Round brush
- Cameleon Dotter Sponge
- Cameleon Kabuki Brush
Load your Cameleon Kabuki brush with Global Apricot and apply over the entire face.
You can choose to paint details on one or both sides of the face. For this design, I chose to detail only one side of the face. Load your #4 with Paradise Black and paint in the eyebrows. Paint in your detail lines for the facial features (i.e. cheekbone, chin, eye etc…)
You can do this quickly and darken up the lines later in the design.
Load your Cameleon dotter sponge with Wolfe White and begin adding your comic book dots. I begin on the forehead and work my way down from there. The dots will follow a diagonal line on the face.
Load your #4 Round brush with Paradise Lime and paint eye shadow onto the eyelids. Load your #4 Round brush with Global magenta and paint on the lipstick.
Load your #4 Round Brush with Paradise Light Blue and paint in the tears just under the eye. Load your #4 Round brush with Paradise Black and outline the eye shadow.
Continue with your #4 Round brush loaded with Paradise Black and outline the lips and tears. From here you will darken up all remaining detail lines.
Load your #4 Round brush with Wolfe White and add highlights to the tears and lips.
Throw on a wig and your done! This comic book face paint design is pretty fast and effective. I hope you enjoy and share your designs with us on our Facebook page!
