Face Painting Designs And Ideas
Without formal training, it is still possible to create simple face
painting designs that are also eye-catching and beautiful. Cheek
art is the best way to accomplish simple face painting.
One of the biggest benefits of developing simple face painting designs
(or cheek art) is saving time. In a fraction of the time, you can
paint a small design or character on a child’s cheek or arm and
generate the same kind of “wow” that you would if you spent ten minutes
painting an elaborate full face design.
Versatility is a big advantage with simple face painting. These
small designs can be adapted and painted on the face/cheek, neck,
shoulder, legs and arms. A simple snake looks fantastic
slithering up the arm. A rose or other flower looks beautiful on
Here are some things you can do to create simple face painting designs
for your kids or kids at heart.
1. If you’re at a loss as to what designs to start
painting, look no further than the television or movie theatre.
What is the hottest kids’ movie playing right now? What about the
funniest animated show? Classic children’s television programming
is also a great place to start. Particularly for preschoolers,
the characters are very simple in nature and therefore fairly easy to
2. A clown face is a very simple face painting
design. And since clowns can be happy, sad, silly or goofy, this
one simple design with a few adjustments around the mouth is a great
face painting design to have in your arsenal. A bright red nose,
a larger than life red mouth (paint around the outside of the lips),
large white area surrounding the red mouth, oversized eyebrows and some
eye lines that extend from the outside of the eye toward the temples
altogether make a simple clown face painting design that will get rave
3. Turning a little girl into a fairy princess is as
simple as a few feathery lines around the eyes, starbursts at the end
of each line and a bit of glitter.
4. Painting a pretend bracelet or necklace is a
simple design yet very unique. Start by painting pearl sized dots
around the wrist or neck and “dangle” a painted heart, peace sign or
other “charm” from the painted “jewelry.”
5. Try a simple rainbow face painting…a classic, but
always popular. Paint red, yellow, green and blue ‘horseshoe’
shapes and add two little white puffs for clouds at the end of each
side of the rainbow. Voila! A happy kid!
The possibilities for simple face painting designs are endless. Don’t
get caught up with the elaborate work that professional face painters
do. For a single birthday party, volunteer event or just having
fun with your kids, simple face painting designs can be just the thing
to put a smile on a kids’ face.
