Introduction: New Orleans Porcelain Mask Face Paint
This classic face paint was inspired by a porcelain mask from New Orleans. The porcelain mask was something that I actually found in my toy drawer and had this one for over 15 years. At that point, I was inspired to recreate it as a face paint design! Here's how I did it!

Step 1: Start With White
First, I began with a white base. I used Mehron Paradise Makeup in White.
Step 2: Grey Eyes
Then, I used Mehron Paradise Makeup in Storm Cloud to paint over and under the eyes.
Step 3: Black Features
Next comes black, which I used to make the exaggerated triangles over and under the eyes.
Step 4: Red Lips
After outlining the grey parts in black, I jumped into Mehron Paradise Makeup in Beach Berry to paint the oversized lips.
Step 5: Final Touches
For the final touches, I used Urban Decay Electric Shadow in Revolt to add some definition to the grey parts. Then, I outlined the triangles with more of the Storm Cloud, and finished things off with black detailing between each triangle.
Step 6: Done!
Now, that's it complete, check out my gallery of my New Orleans Mask face paint!
