Step 1: Sketch Out the Face
I began by using a light brown face paint (Mehron Paradise in Light Brown) to sketch out the outline of Rudolph's face.
Step 2: Fill It In
Next, I used a mix of light and dark brown shades to fill it in. I also blended in a bit of bronze eye shadow (from the e.l.f. Prism Shadow palette) to bring out a cleaner and bright effect. Also, I made sure to leave my upper lip, insides of the "ears" and the hair on top blank to fill in with white.
Step 3: Add White
Then, I filled in the empty spaces with my white, as well as added the fur also in white on both sides, following my jawline.
Step 4: Red Nose, Pink Cheeks, and Pink Ears
Then, I painted my nose with the iconic red. Then, I finger painted some light pink to my cheeks for blush, and used of that as well as pink shadow for the insides of the ears.
Step 5: Outline With Black
Then, I outlined all of my features with black, as well as drew in some antlers and some whiskers.
Step 6: Finishing Touches
For the final touches, I added red glitter to my red nose, then painted the bottom lip with black.
