Step 1: Mix Your Ingredients

Using nothing more than organic lotion and natural pigments [I used organic eye shadows], you can make all different colors of face paint. We were going for an Avatar look so we stuck to blues, purples and golds.

Step 2: Create a Color Palette

Place all of your colors on a plate so you have easy access to all of them while you paint.

Step 3: Get Painting

Using your finger, a sponge or a paint brush, start painting your child’s face.

Step 4: Breathe Easy

Once the face paint dries, it stays in place well, but it’s also easy to remove with water and a wash cloth. There’s no need to worry about the health of your child or the environment when using homemade face paint.
