Outline your monster’s mouth using the black eyeliner pencil. Create a large half circle over your child’s mouth and chin. Next outline the face with yellow paint coming in close to the outside corners of the eyes and just underneath the outlined mouth, making sure you leave some space on the outside edges of the face.
Draw three orange circles on the cheeks above the outlined mouth. Then start to draw in teeth across the top and bottom of the mouth.
Mix red, white & a little bit of yellow together to get a salmon pink colour. Fill in the mouth with the pink being careful around your newly painted teeth outlines. With the setting powder and powder brush set everything you’ve done so far making sure to press the powder into the makeup not brush so you don’t smudge anything.
Mix together blue, green & white paint to get a minty turquoise colour. Using a large brush, paint around the outside of the face.
Fill in the middle section of the face with yellow. Use a small brush to paint around your orange circles.
Finally, fill in your teeth and add a small red half circle inside the mouth for a tongue. Set everything with setting powder.
