Here are the simple steps for this lion face paint idea, using a Snazaroo party pack and a set of Snazaroo brushes:

  1. Mark out the white areas on the face using a brush or sponge – nose up to forehead, top edges of the forehead (for ears) and around the cheeks.
  2. Fill in the rest of the face area with yellow using a sponge or brush.
  3. Mark out the blue areas with a brush – triangles around the outside of the face to make up part of the lion’s mane.
  4. Fill in the areas between the blue triangles with bright orange, and add orange spots above the eyebrows.
  5. Finish with the black outline, drawn on in the finest brush you have.
