If you want to spare the expenses of a professional design artist, that is not an issue! You can certainly master the art by yourself! Start investing in a few essential supplies like face paints, medium sized paint brushes and some glitter! Pace down this article and pick up a few interesting cheek face painting designs.

Designs For Painting Cheek Faces

Octopuses are super cool. Especially after the famous predictor of the FIFA world cup games - Paul the octopus, these sea creatures are all the rage! Get your hands on purple paints as you paint a neat and round head. Once you got the head right, twist your paintbrush around as you draw eight wriggly feet spread out in almost every direction! Use psychedelic colours for the eyes and wait for it to dry up properly. Add a subtle smile on the octopus’ face and make creative modifications that will attract attention from everywhere! Boys usually love this idea!

So when it’s Halloween and the best thing about it is the glowing pumpkin lantern, why not paint a few funky pumpkins over the cheeks and get in the Halloween mood? It’s simple! All you need to do is draw a slight elongated circle and paint it orange! Use a relatively smaller paintbrush and stroke with it to make thin ridges to the orange to add more detail to the pumpkin. Draw the stem with thick green paint and of course, two black triangles in the centre to highlight the eyes and a tiny inverted triangle for the nose! Go creative with the mouth and change the pumpkin’s emotions on either side of the cheek. One could be angry and the other one laughing!

Sponge Bob
It’s really hard to find a kid that does not idolize ‘SpongeBob’ from “SpongeBob and the square pants”. People now wear spongebob band-aids! That’s how cool he is! This cartoon character is a legend and to have the yellow rectangular shaped icon of him painted on a kid’s cheek would be nothing but an honour! A variety of paints are good enough to ensure you do an authentic job with white for the shirt and brown for the pants! Refer to online Google images to cross check.

Abstract Art
Random sketches of abstract things that don’t necessarily mean anything but are very visually appealing can prove to be a hit. An abstract design may have several connotations, but isn’t anything definite and may keep people guessing.
