Materials Needed:

  • face paint in blue, red and yellow
  • black eyeliner pencil
  • red lip liner
  • craft brushes

Create Base

Use a craft brush to apply blue face paint to the forehead, the top and tip of the nose, chin and cheeks (Image 1).

Add Dragon Eyes, Nose and Mouth

Use a black eyeliner to line the cheek and nose area, drawing the line upward. Then, add a line along the nose past the brow, curving it up and over the brow about an inch. Draw some jagged peaks from this to mimic a winged shape. Create flared nostrils by filling in the inside of the nose and drawing a thick triangle out to the outside of the nose just on the bottom. The lips get a more menacing look by adding black around them and adding points to the cupid's bow (Image 1).

Make Flaming Eyes

Use a craft brush to apply red face paint above the eye inside the wings that were drawn. Fill in above the eyebrow but don't get any makeup on the eyelid (Image 1).
