How to Make Face Paint

You know those days where you have been running around from store to store to just get a couple things? You can only find like one thing at each store. So long ensues your scavenger hunt around town to finish checking off your list.

Then… you get home and realize that you still forgot something! Ahhhh!!!!

You might have guessed this is what happened to me today.

Tonight at our church we had a trunk-or-treat activity and of course the kids dress up. Well, to complete their outfits, the kids needed some face paint. That is exactly what I forgot.

Just the thought of running out to the store one more time was torture on its own! 

That’s when I thought. “I wonder if I can figure out how to make face paint?”

Cue the choir! Hallelujah! Thank you Pinterest!

I can’t believe how easy it is to figure out how to make face paint! All it takes is four ingredients that you already have at home, mixed together in a bowl, and done! If you want to know how to make face paint, this is the easiest way possible!

Turns out it is crazy easy to make your own face paint! So that is exactly what we did! And because I have to share everything with you guys that I find that might make your life easier, here ya go my loves!

How to Make Face Paint 

What you will need:

½ cup cornstarch

½ cup your favorite face lotion

1-2 Tbs. vegetable oil (coconut or baby oil will work as well)

A few drops of washable kids paint (“washable” is key!)

Start by mixing together the cornstarch, lotion, and 1 Tbs. of vegetable oil. You might want a little thinner consistency then what we ended up with. If so, add a little more oil.

Test the consistency of the paint by painting a small portion on the back of your hand. Let it dry. If it feels super dry and cracking, add more oil a little at a time to the mixture.

Now start mixing in small drops of paint to the mixture until you get the color you want.

    I can’t believe how easy it is to make face paint! I love using face paint during parties or playing with kids. I’m definitely trying this out. By the way Brittany, how long is the storage for it? Thank you!

      You are so welcome! I’m not sure how long it stores for. So far I have saved ours for up to one week and it still worked just great!
