Face paint: pirate step-by-step
Fancy taking on pirate as an alternative Halloween costume this year? 🏴☠️
Well, if your little one’s been inspired by Captain Jack Sparrow this All Hallows’ Eve, take a look at our simple, 3-step face painting guide 🎃
What you’ll need
- Dark brown face paint
- Black face paint
- Red face paint
- A makeup or face paint brush
A pirate costume!
Create bushy eyebrows, a moustache and small beard (along the jawline and up to the ears) using dark brown paint.
Using black paint, put a second layer on your brown features, making sure to fill in any gaps.
Draw an eyepatch over one eye (making sure your little one keeps it closed when doing so) and draw a line diagonally across the face to add the string.
Finally, with red paint, draw a scar line on one cheek, adding stitch lines across it with a darker colour.
Voila! Now your mini Jack Sparrow is ready to take on the high seas!
