Face painting takes just a few simple skills to master to provide maximum appeal. Face painting ideas can come from anyone and anything, including fantastical elements from literature and film, mundane everyday items that get transformed with a bit of creativity into something unique- even dreams and fantasies can provide fertile raw materials from which to harvest face painting ideas.

Christmas Face Painting

Certain themes seem to be favored by girls while others by boys. For example, girls often enjoy having their faces painted along the following lines: butterflies, cats, cuddle animals, puppies, fairies, princesses, bunny rabbits and other small furry creatures, ladybugs, flowers, elves, rainbows and mermaids.

Boys often enjoy being painted as superheroes (like Spiderman or Batman), pirates, more ferocious animals like tigers or lions, bats and other 'spooky' creatures, clowns, aliens, robots, rock stars and adventure characters. Both girls and boys share many of the same face painting ideas when it comes to Halloween: ghosts, witches, warlocks, devils, skulls, spider webs, bats, black cats, monsters, aliens, clowns and magical beings of all sorts.

Face painting ideas for adults run the gamut from the comical to the merely whimsical, from the horrifying to the sedate, and from the prosaic to the sublime. It is not uncommon for adults to toss their inhibitions aside and cover themselves with 40 pounds of insulating foam and paint, pieces of furniture or gallons of dyed sugary syrup designed to mimic blood and gore.
