Christmas is soon to come, now that halloween, bonfire night and summer have passed.

 We are invited to lots of Santa’s grottos, corporate events, pub Christmas events and school Christmas markets. We’ve come up with two simple face painting designs to either paint on your child’s face for their Christmas performance or on your self for Christmas drinks out.



Difficulty: Easy

What you will need:

  • White paint (snazaroo or diamond FX)
  • Thin brush
  • Silver glitter (optional)
  • Gems (optional)
  1. Start by painting on a large cross, just above the arch of the eyebrow arch.
  2. Draw another cross in the gaps (see photo for reference)
  3. On each line draw an few arrows facing down
  4. Repeat step 1 to 3 ranging in sizes, places the snowflakes floating to the front of your eyebrow down to the cheeky bones.

(TIP: the larger the range of size the more impressive your masterpiece looks.)

  1. To finish the look, add on a small sprinkle of glitter on to the still wet face paint, finalising your wonderland face paint look.
  2. Add in blue swirls between each snowflake
