Introduction: Darth Maul Face Paint (Star Wars)

Picture of Darth Maul Face Paint (Star Wars)

Going out as the evil Darth Maul from the Star Wars franchise has never been more of a forceful feeling! Here, I give my credit to amazing face painters Ms.MaoMaoz and Ashlea Henson, both of which created their own versions of this dark red character on YouTube.

Step 1: Step by Step

Picture of Step by Step

Follow these step-by-step photos as I show you my take on the character:

  1. First, I painted three yellow horns on the forehead...
  2. ...followed by a layer of red (Beach Berry from Mehron Paradise) all over the face.
  3. Now, I painted black geometric shapes over each eye.
  4. Then, I continued to use black to fill in the gaps around the horns and painted a line going down the bridge of the nose.
  5. Then, I colored the nose, lips, and sides of the jawbone parts with black.

6-7. I used even more black to make robotic lines and dots across the forehead, on the cheeks, on the chin, and on the bottom lip.

8. Finally, I used a mix of red, light brown, and white to highlight the horns, and used a final layer of black to add shadowing to the geometric lines on the forehead, and the sides of the face

9. The last step is to add a black cape to complement the look. You can use a black hoodie or black scarf as well!

Now, it's time to let the force be within reach!
