Creating your MUNE Facepainting

Before starting brush over all the colours you’re using with a light layer of water. This will make them slightly damp and easier to use.

  1. Start by outlining the eye and nose area with a mix of sky blue and bright blue. To mix .. load a paint brush with the bright blue and mix into the corner of the sky blue. (I use a paintbrush to apply)

  1. Using a sponge carefully colour in the rest of the face with a light layer of white, followed by the light blue The white base will lighten and add a brightness to the sky blue. Don’t go past the mouth area and don’t worry if you blur the edges of the eye colour as you can go over this after wards. The bottom lip becomes the bottom of Mune’s face.

  1. Using a fine paintbrush paint a thin black line across the top of the eyelid and half way along the bottom of the eye area (a bit like you’d apply eyeliner). Next, again using the fine paint brush outline the darker blue eye area from just above the eyebrow and around so that it curves in under the eye.

  1. If you need to touch up any area of the darker nose and eye area

  1. Using a larger coarser brush (You could use a toothbrush) carefully flick small white dots over the face. To do this take your brush with white faceprint on, hold it in front of the face and pul back the bristles with you finger and let go. This will create little spots of facepaint. It’s worth practicing on a hand first so you can feel how far away to hold the brush from the face.

6. When the faceprint has all dried add small amounts of silver glitter gel to the face.
