It’s time for a fantasy face design! These designs are always a lot of fun and don’t take a whole lot of time to complete. I ended up doing quite a few of this style design during Halloween and throughout the year for private bookings. So let’s jump right in!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Ben Nye 12 Color Lumiere Grande Colour Palette
- Ben Nye Lumiere Grande Colour Starry Night
- Bad Ass Mini Stencils – BAM1029 – Gator
- Mehron Brilliant Light Blue
- Mehron Brilliant Silver
- Mehron Brilliant Purple
- Mehron Paradise Smoothie Blender
- Mehron Mark Reid Signature Round Brush #4
Load your Smoothie Blender with pink from your Ben Nye Lumiere palette and begin adding it along the edges of the face to add contouring. You will also need to add the pink to the eyelids and just underneath the eyes.
Continue using your smoothie blender alternating the blue and purple colors from your Ben Nye Lumiere palette. Add the purple to the top of the forehead, cheekbones and from the jawline down to the neck. Begin adding blue to the sides of the eyes and underneath. Next, you will use the white from the same palette and add highlights to the forehead, nose and cheekbones.
Load your Smoothie Blender with black from your Ben Nye Starry Night and using your BAM gator stencil, add the stencil pattern to the forehead at the hairline area and on each eyelid, extending above the eyebrow as shown. You will also want to add starry night to the eyelids and just under the eyes for eye shadow.
Load your #4 round brush with Paradise Brilliant Purple and begin painting small pointed strokes around the eyes as shown, continue with purple from the jawline, extending down to the neck.. Load your #4 round brush with Paradise Brilliant Light Blue and paint the eyebrows, then add several strokes from the jawline, extending down to the neck.
Follow the same steps from above, this time using Paradise Brilliant Silver. Next, using a toothbrush or similar, begin splatter painting the Paradise blue, purple and silver all around the eyes. Finally, add lipstick to complete the design.
You can add the same Paradise colors to the hands as I did, which looks great especially for pictures in my opinion. The key to designs such as this one is to get your contouring down so the design can be used for all ages and still look great.
Make sure you share your designs with us on Facebook and let us know what tutorials you’d like to see us do in the future!
Until next time,
Live, Love, Paint!
