Lion Halloween Costume

Materials Needed:

  • face-painting kit with white, yellow, orange, black and brown
  • circular or wedge sponges
  • thin-detail paintbrush
  • cup of water
  • brown eye shadow
  • makeup blending brush

Apply Yellow Face Paint

Begin by dampening a sponge then picking up some of the yellow face paint. Tip: When using dry face paints be sure to get sponge or brush wet before dipping into paint. Have child close their eyes then apply yellow paint to the center of their face and blend out (Images 1, 2 and 3).

Add Orange Paint

Using the same sponge, add orange to the yellow paint's edges and blend out further to create a blended ombre effect. Apply orange paint like brushstrokes to resemble fur (Images 1 and 2).

Add White Paint

Dip a clean sponge in water then in white paint and apply under eye, angling down the sides of the nose (Image 1). Add white above top lip, blending out onto cheeks and down chin to resemble a lion's muzzle (Image 2).
