1Using gold makeup, color the eye area starting from the inner eye and working at a 90-degree angle toward the forehead, as shown. Color the whole upper eyelid and the area above the brow. With the makeup sponge, make a gold swirl around the cheek. Don’t worry too much about getting this perfect, it’s more of a shimmery, magical foundation for design to come. Lightly top the gold makeup with blue paint.
2Before painting the designs on your child’s face, sketch them out on paper. Get comfortable with the strokes you intend to make so that when you paint them, you can do so with quick, single strokes. Using a small or medium paintbrush, create curly lines and blotted dashes in either white or black, depending on which color would stand out more on your child’s skin.
3Outline the lines and dashes with a contrasting color (black for white lines, white for black lines). Always outline on the inner side of the line. This creates a shadow effect. If you have flowers or stars in your design, you can add a dash of color (blue, pink, green) to them. Add some shimmer lip gloss and your little fairy face is complete.
4There’s a plethora of colorful fairy outfits for sale where Halloween costumes are sold. Let your child pick out her favorite one and accessorize with a matching floral crown, tights, and colorful ballet shoes or flats. Or, for the more ambitious of you, check out these homemade fairy costumes:
