Face Painting Tips 9

Applying glitter

Applying glitter to a design can add that perfect finishing touch when applied in a careful way. Avoid covering the face in thick glitter dust – less is more. When using tip crème, dab the glitter onto points of the face which catch the light: the cheekbones, the top of the forehead, the nose, the chin and just above the brows. This way, you can avoid the delicate eye area, whilst catching the light with a subtle hint of sparkle. Mix and match your colours. Gold glitter on top of gold paint does look pretty but don’t be afraid to make a statement. Green glitter on top of Kryolan gold looks stunning, and adding blue glitter on top of black line work on those key areas brings out the black beautifully.
