Have you tried out my new face paint kit yet? It’s super fun! My inspiration for this DIY sugar skull face paint kit came from many blog readers who asked for an easy way to paint their face like a sugar skull for Dia de los Muertos. It was difficult for them to draw the designs, they didn’t know what products to buy – and they didn’t want to spend a lot of cash. I worked with the product developers at iLovetoCreate to create a small, affordable, easy-to-use kit that solves all of those issues – and here it is! This kit is for first-timers who want to give face painting a try without a hassle.
Here is how this DIY sugar skull face paint kit works: I designed a series of stencils that you place on a freshly washed face. Dip a soft brush in water and swirl it in the paint until you get a creamy consistency. Then dab it over the stencils on your face. You don’t the paint to be watery – you want it to be creamy so it won’t run. Let the paint dry and then use a wider soft paint brush to apply the white on your face around the stencil areas. TIP: You’ll need to do this in layers, letting dry between each layer. The kit comes with a sponge, but it goes on smoother and more evenly if you use a soft brush. Lastly, use the black body art marker to outline everything. You can then use a Crafty Chica Glitter Tattoo Kit to add even more embellishments!
If you want, you can incorporate some of your own eye shadows, lipsticks, whatever you want to create your own look. Look what my friend Rachel Mátos, The Art Muse, did! She used a variety of beauty items to create this classy-yet-gothic look. I’m so flattered that she incorporated my Crafty Chica Face Paint stencils!
