Harlequins are comedic characters in theatrical comedy. But they can be scary too… especially when it’s Halloween.
Supplies: We recommend Graftobian ProPaint for this design.
You may also get all the face paint colors used in this makeup design in one kit. Choose from either the Graftobian Makeup Kit or Diamond FX Makeup Kit.
Tips: Always start with a clean face. Make sure that all paints, tools and the work area are all clean. Prepare everything you need before you start.
Step 1. Create a base. Using a sponge, cover the whole face with Pearl Frost.
Step 2. Yellow on the cheeks. With a sponge, apply Buttercup Yellow on the lower side of the eyes near the cheeks.
Step 3. Paint pink under the eyes. With a sponge, apply Shocking Pink underneath the eyes.
