Painting by numbers.

I have a confession to make.................

You will never see a face of the day or an eye of the day here because my make up skills are awful.

Truly awful, (I don't mean I look like Any Winehouse after a 3 day bender, but you get the picture) I apply eyeshadow with my fingers (clean, obviously) and my eyeliner skills are basic. (Anything other than a crayon or eyeshadow applied with a damp brush and I start to resemble Alice Cooper)

But I thought I would show you what I CAN do.

Along with my sister-in-law I do this professionally, but I have only included pics of my own children as have no permission to use other pics at the moment.

What do you think?

Let me know.

  1. They're really good!
    I especially like the sunset one - it's different to any painted faces I've seen before!

  2. Thanks hun, it is something I love to do.

    We get lots of bookings in the summer. We did an asian wedding last year with over 1000 guests attending!!!!

    we were exhausted at the end

  3. How cute is that! Thank you so much for posting. This is so cool. Love love love the skull thing and you could not have chosen a better model for the sunset scene: how bright are those blue eyes set against the orange. Please post more often: This is a truly genuinely and fantastically inspirational.
    I'd love to read a post about your favourite paints and brushes and your tips to make it last through sweat, running around or a all night drinking and partying.
    You need to be friend with my mate @teampixie from bristol and @spittingglitter from scunthorpe. They'd enjoy that too xx
    p.s love the blending in the last little boy picture too.


  4. Do you start with a face chart by the way before you set out to do it on real models? :) xx

  5. When im making up faces I usually get one of my very patient children to sit down while i just paint straight on them. I used to take inspiration from face painting books but find that Im making more things up myself now x x

    I use Snazaroo paints, but want to get more into Krayolan for the more detailed stuff x x x

  6. Soooooo cute ❤
