STEP ONE | WEREWOLF BASE COLOURS
Using a round brush loaded with brown paint, create quick, short strokes from the edge of the face towards the centre, all around the perimeter of the face. This creates a fur effect.
STEP TWO | WHITE BASE AND DETAILS
Using a sponge loaded with white paint, dab a white base onto the forehead, nose and cheeks.
Using the round brush, loaded with black paint, create short strokes from the edge of the face to the centre to add depth and interest to the fur.
STEP THREE | WEREWOLF MOUTH AND LIPS
Using the round brush loaded with black paint, fill in the tip of the nose and the upper lip. Then, fill in the Cupid's bow by creating a line connecting the nose and lips. From the edge of the lips, create a minor upward-curved stroke.
STEP FOUR | BLACK AND WHITE DETAILS
Using a round brush, create short black-and-white strokes from the edges of the face to the centre, using the same technique as before.
STEP FIVE | FINISHING TOUCHES
Using the round brush loaded with black paint, dot small freckles on the cheeks to finish off the design.
Tips to make your next werewolf face paint design even better
