STEP ONE | PREPARING YOUR SPONGE
First, load your sponge with white Derivan face paint, then on top of this white base, add blue Derivan face paint one of side,and a stripe of yellow Derivan face paint next to each other, as shown.
STEP TWO | WITCHY WING COLOURS
Using this prepared sponge, gently dab the paint over the eye area and eyebrows, with eyes closed. Be sure to keep the sponge facing the same way and dab repeatedly to achieve soft gradient between the colours. Repeat this process below the outer eye area to create a butterfly wing shape
STEP THREE | WEB OUTLINE
Load a round brush with black Derivan face paint and create wiggling lines on top of the yellow-blue wing shape, moving outwards from the eye towards the edges of the face.
STEP FOUR | WEB DETAILS
Connect these wiggly lines with short curved strokes between each of them, creating a web pattern with the black paint.
STEP FIVE | WITCHY SPIDER
Begin by creating a small black spot on the forehead, and, above this, a larger black spot. Coming from this larger spot, or the body, create four downward curving strokes, two on each side, that start at the body and connect to the edge of the web. Then repeat this again with upward curving strokes.
STEP SIX | WHITE DETAILS
Using a round brush loaded with white Derivan face paint, dot small white freckles around the bottom of the outer corner of the eyes and on the inner corner of the eyes towards the bridge of the nose. Use this same brush and paint to add two white dots to the lower black circle on the forehead, to create eyes for the spider.
STEP SEVEN | FINAL WITCHY TOUCHES
Using a round brush loaded with red Derivan face paint, draw a vertical line down the body of the spider to add detail and interest, and then, using a round brush and a colour of your choice, colour in the lips to create a lipstick look.
