While little ones will love this for a fairy-themed party, it's also simple and pretty enough for older children to do on each other's faces. I've showed a nature fairy, but be as creative as you like. What about a pale blue snow fairy with a snowflake in the centre of her forehead, or a fiery red fairy with a ruby gem? You could even turn it into a superhero, with a web as the central forehead feature.

A little nature fairy, worthy of Peter Pan and Neverland


Time: 10 minutes
Age: Any Age
Level: Easy



Klutz, Snazaroo, face paints
Wolfe face paints are great for this one, as they have really vibrant pigments that go on smoothly. I also use Snazaroo, as they come in nice big pots with a handy lid to use as a mixing tray


Materials
Face paints, 1 colour and 1 white
Brush
Water
Hairband

Method
Fix the child's hair back with a hairband



Hairband, child
It's useful to have a couple of hairbands ready if you are doing this for a party


Mix your main colour with a bit of white in a mixing palette.



Hairband, child
You can get mixing trays, but I find the lid of the white pot did well enough


Sweep your pale colour over the eyelids



Hairband, child
It helps if you ask your face paintee to relax their eyes as much as possible


Now load your brush with the main colour and add a line to the top of the pale colour over the eyelids



Hairband, child




Green, eyebrows
This is what it looks like when these sections are finished


Using the main colour paint a swirly curlicue over each eyebrow



Green, eyebrows


If you don't know what I mean by a curlicue, this is a curlicue

Add two curlicues to each cheek



Green, eyebrows
It can be tricky to get these the same on either side, but it becomes easier with practice


Paint three teardrops in the gap between each cheek curlicue



Green, eyebrows
The teardrops are achieved by simply loading the brush with paint, and then pressing the tip onto the face. Simple as that!




Face


Using the pale colour again add little details on your curlicues and teardrop



Face
The addition of the pale colour adds some pretty extra details to the fairy


Draw your fairy feature in the middle of the forehead. My model chose a leaf.



Face

Face
Very happy with her new look
