STEP ONE | PREPARE THE SPONGE
Prepare the sponge by firstly covering half of one of its surfaces with white paint, then over this paint a stripe of blue on one edge, a stripe of red in the middle and a stripe of purple on the other edge. This purple can be made by mixing the red and the blue paint.
STEP TWO | TIARA BASE
Use this sponge to create the tiara base by positioning it against the forehead with the blue at the bottom and the purple at the top, and move across the forehead while dabbing. This will create a gradient between the colours, and a beautiful base for the tiara.
STEP THREE | WHITE DETAILS
Using a chisel brush and white create comma-like strokes from the area around the outer corners of the eyes, towards the edge of the tiara base. To create these strokes, turn the brush to create thinner lines towards the end of the stroke.
Use a round brush with white paint to create similar lines, centring around the area between the eyebrows, and the upper edge of the tiara base.
STEP FOUR | KINDY GLITZ
Using the purple Derivan kindy glitz, create central spots at the centre of each group of white strokes. At the edges of the design, a small group of 3 or 4 dots can be added instead of one central spot to add extra detail.
From the bottom of each of the comma-strokes at the edge of the face, dot a few spots of kindy glitz downwards.
STEP FIVE | LIPS
Mix the white and red paint together to create a lovely pink, and use the chisel brush to fill in the lips and create a beautiful lipstick look
