Homemade face paints for having fun with friends

Do you want to have some fun with your friends? Do you want to be able to show your creative side when throwing a party on a budget? If so, then you need to try out some homemade face paints.  Below, we will discuss the different ingredients that you can use to make your own face paints, as well as how to apply them. We will also provide a few recipes for you to try out.

Face paints with washable colors

Making face paints with washable colors is a great option for people who want to have some fun, but don't want to worry about the mess. All you need to do is mix together some cornstarch, water, and food coloring in a bowl. You can then use a brush to apply the paint to your face. It's best to start with a light layer and add more if needed. Once you're done, just wash your face with soap and water.

If you want to make a darker shade of paint, you can add some black food coloring to the mixture. Just be careful not to get the paint in your eyes, as it could potentially sting.

Face paints with non-washable colors.

If you want something that will really stand out, then try making face paints with non-washable colors.

This involves using acrylic paint, which can be found at any art store. Be sure to get the kind that is meant for use on skin, as other types of paint can be harmful.

To make the paint, simply mix together equal parts of acrylic paint and water. You can then add food coloring as desired. Be sure to test the paint on your arm first to make sure that it doesn't cause any irritation.

Once you have made the paint, you can apply it in the same way as described above. Just be sure to avoid getting it in your eyes.

Different ideas for food coloring paint

When it comes to using food coloring for face paints, there are a lot of different ways to have fun. One option is to try out different shades of paint. This can be done by mixing different colors of food coloring together. You can also experiment with different paint techniques, such as dotting, swirling, or stamping to go with your event decorations.

Another great way to use food coloring is to create designs on your face. You can use any type of design you want, from flowers to animals. Just be sure to test the paint on your arm first to make sure that it doesn't cause any irritation.

One thing to keep in mind when using food coloring is that it can stain your skin. So, if you're planning on wearing the paint for a long time, be sure to use a sealant spray or some other type of barrier between the paint and your skin. This will help keep the paint from rubbing off or smudging.

With a little bit of creativity, you can come up with all sorts of fun designs using food coloring for face paints. So, have some fun and let your imagination run wild.

Get creative with designs

When it comes to creating face paint designs, the sky is the limit. You can come up with any type of design you want, from simple stripes and dots to more intricate patterns. You can even go as far as to create entire scenes, such as landscapes or portraits.

One of the best things about face painting is that there are no rules.  So, feel free to experiment with different techniques and colors. If you're not sure where to start, you can take inspiration from examples you find online.

If you want to create some incredibly intricate designs for a party or event, finding a professional painting service would be a great idea. A few face paint designs from Creative Faces could make for a wonderful display at a party.

Adding glitter to homemade face paint

If you want to create some really cool designs on your face, then consider adding glitter to your homemade face paint. This can be done in a variety of ways, depending on the type of glitter that you use. For example, if you want to create a sparkly design, then you can use glitter that is meant for crafts. Just make sure that it is non-toxic and safe for use on skin.

Another option is to use edible glitter. This type of glitter is made from ingredients that are safe to eat, such as sugar and cornstarch. It comes in a variety of colors, so you can find the perfect one for your design.

To add the glitter, simply mix it into the paint in the same way that you would add any other type of coloring.

Be sure to stir well so that the glitter is evenly distributed.


Face painting is a great way to have some fun with your friends. It's also a great way to express your creativity. With a little bit of practice, you can come up with all sorts of cool designs. Just be sure to use safe, non-toxic materials, and always test the paint on your arm before applying it to your face.
