Step 1: Supplies

Here's a list of some suggested products.

  • Face Primer
  • Face Paint in White, Orange, and Black
  • Makeup Sponge
  • Brushes in Various Size

I only used the Nyx Angel Veil because it was what I had on hand and what I've been using under my daily makeup as of late. I do, however, recommend the Wolfe Brothers face paint. It goes on nicely and washes off easily as well. It's a bit of an investment, but if you plan on doing face painting on any sort of regular basis it might be nice to have.

As for the brushes, a wide flat brush is nice for the white and orange and I suggest a #3 round for all the work in black.

Step 2: Primer and White

Start off with clean skin and spread primer all over your face.

Then move on to the white. I suggest outlining the white with a brush and then filling it in with a sponge. Fill in the chin area and then up from the eyes. Try and keep it all as symmetrical as possible.

Step 3: Add Orange and Blend

Next fill in the orange. I suggest a wide, flat brush and fairly thinned out paint, if you're using the wolfe paints. Then blend out the lines so they're not quite so harsh. I used a little white paint on a sponge and dabbed it along the edges, trying to maintain symmetry.

Just beautiful artwork! I can almost hear you growl (or maybe purr). :-)

Great 'ible! When I first saw your face, I thought you must have airbrushed the white and orange sections. It's cool how smooth you got the transitions between colors. It makes the black details really pop.
