Halloween Skull Face Paint Tutorial by Stacey PerryWith Halloween quickly approaching, we will be sharing many awesome designs for you to use this year, including this quick Halloween Skull Face. This design can be easily created for right around $25. It can also be used "on the job" if you're looking to add something other than your average Halloween skull.

Here's what you'll need:

  1. MiKim FX AQ Matte White F1 Makeup
  2. MiKim FX AQ Matte Black F27 Makeup
  3. MiKim FX AQ Matte Red F8 Makeup
  4. Mehron FX Blood Gel
  5. MiKim FX Hand-cut Petal Makeup Sponge
  6. White Round Taklon Brush #5
  7. Soft Grip Filbert Comb Brush

Here's how to apply:

Start out with your petal sponge loaded with White and stipple onto the nose, mouth and chin as shown above.

Load your #5 round brush with Black and paint the nose cavity.

Continue by outlining the white area. Start your stroke at the corner of the mouth and fill in with black. You will want to use thick to thin lines to create more depth. Next, load your filbert brush with white and begin creating your teeth.

Load your #5 round brush with black and outline the teeth. You will also want to add a stroke in between each tooth as shown. This is just your placement. From here we will begin shading.

Continue, by adding lines and shading to the skull, keeping the edges of the design darker.

Load your #5 round brush with red and paint the side edges and add a stroke just above the nose that will extend to the top of the forehead.

Next, load your #5 round brush with black and outline the red line, edges of the skull and teeth again.

Load your #5 round brush with white and paint several stitches on the red line you painted on the forehead.

Using a dry brush technique with your filbert brush and black paint, add shading to the stitches and the sides of the skull.

Load your #5 round brush with black and outline the edges of the stitches. You can also add more white highlights as I did to give the design even more depth.

And finally, add blood to the outside edges of the skull and also dripping from the eyes. Take care when applying around the eyes. Only apply to your comfort level.

This skull is fun and different. You can easily leave out the shading and blood when your line is long, or if parent's just don't want any blood. This is also an easy design to create if you are going to a Halloween Party.

I hope you enjoyed this Halloween skull. Please share yours with us on our Facebook page or tag me on Instagram @thestah so I can see and share your results!

Until next time… Live, Love, Paint.
