Mardi Gras Mime Mask by Zuri FX

Posted by on

Mardi Gras celebration! So much fun and joy. For our Mardi Gras Design I made a mime Mask. I can just see myself walking down New Orleans and seeing a mime preforming on the street. So I simply just combined the two as one. I have this awesome Mardi Gras mask and i wanted to bring it to life. Happy Mardi Gras Everyone!

Products Used:

White Face Paint

Black Face Paint 

Black Eye shadow 

Red Face paint 

Small round brush 

Flat brush 

Blending brush


1. I started out by tracing out my design using a black eyeliner pencil (white Pencil is great too) Shaping out the Mardi Gras mask but also creating a illusion like i'm actually wearing a real mask. I put a line down my forehead and on my chin. 

2. Filling in my Illusion with Black face paint on one side of my forehead using a Flat brush. Also a thickened line under the mask and under my chin. My mask design is a black butterfly. I went in with a round brush to create the butterfly.

3. Connecting the butterfly to bring it all together. Fixed with the antennas using a small round brush.


4. The entire mask is white. USing a round Brush to apply and fill in. 

5.Adding Red face paint for my lips like red lipstick. i made the lips a little smaller then mine. 

6. Taking Black eye shadow. going along the edge of the mask and blending outwards but still keeping close the the edge of your design. the illusion will will come to light.
