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

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
It's useful to have a couple of hairbands ready if you are doing this for a party
You can get mixing trays, but I find the lid of the white pot did well enough
It helps if you ask your face paintee to relax their eyes as much as possible
This is what it looks like when these sections are finished
If you don't know what I mean by a curlicue, this is a curlicue
It can be tricky to get these the same on either side, but it becomes easier with practice
The teardrops are achieved by simply loading the brush with paint, and then pressing the tip onto the face. Simple as that!
The addition of the pale colour adds some pretty extra details to the fairy

Very happy with her new look
