Be the fastest and fiercest feline ever with this awesome cheetah face paint, as created originally by Ashley Pickin.

Note: All of the colors being used are made by Mehron Paradise AQ Make-Up.

Step 1: Start With White

First, I began with white for over the eyelid, upper lip, and along both jawlines.

Step 2: Fill in With Yellow

Then, I filled in the empty areas with yellow.

Step 3: Continue With Light Brown

Then, I used Light Brown for the highlight on a few areas on the face.

Step 4: Add Black

Then, I went into using black to outline the white eye sockets, and also started to add stripes on the bridge of the nose. Then, I colored the tip of my nose with black, as well as added whisker holes on the muzzle.

Step 5: Finish Off

Finally, I finished off with some more stripes, spots, fur, and added teeth to the bottom lip.

When framing the face with fur or stripes, make sure that you follow along the shape of your face. Depending on the face shape and size, you will need to adjust how you paint the fur or stripes to fit within the frame.

Step 6: Grrrowl!

Now, all there is left to do is let out your best growl!
