  1. 1

    Start by designating each of your three paintbrushes to one colour. This will help you avoid inadvertently mixing your colours while face painting.

  2. 2

    Use a palette to lay out your red, black and white face paint.

  3. 3

    Have your paper towels on hand in case of any accidental messes.

  1. 1

    Begin your face painting with a base layer of red paint, cover as much of your face as possible while avoiding your hair, mouth, nostrils, and eyes.

  2. 2

    Once this red layer is sufficiently dry, use your white paint to place two triangles on your forehead for horns. These can be sized depending on the painter's preference. Also use the white paint to place two smaller and jagged triangles pointing down below your bottom lip. This will add fangs to your look.

  3. 3

    Outline your white horns and teeth with your black paint to make them more pronounced.

  4. 4

    Use your black paint to create thick eyebrows, position them slanting downwards towards the top of your nose. This will create a more intense look and add to your devilish appearance.

  5. 5

    Paint two alternate nostrils placed on top of the base of your nose with the black face paint. Also use your black paint to add dark smudging around your eyes for a more gaunt effect.

Tips and warnings

  • Make sure to be careful with any paint around sensitive areas like eyes, nose and mouth.
