How to paint a leopard face

For this make up I used gold, white and black Wolfe brand face paint and gold cosmetic glitter. Don’t use craft supplies. Only use products made for use on the skin. My lovely friend Willa is my model.

Start by applying white around the eyes and on the muzzle area (under the nose and below the mouth) with a dense make up sponge. Don’t worry if it’s a little messy, the edges will be blended with the gold or yellow.

Next, load your sponge with gold or yellow and apply over the rest of the face. Grab a small round paintbrush, load it up with black and paint lines along the eyebrow and down the sides of the nose. Paint the end of the nose. Add an outline around the white muzzle, and two rows of dots or lines. Complete the look with leopard spots. Admire.  Go play!

    I painted my daughters face for The Lord Mayors Procession in Norwich at the weekend following your guide and she looked great!
