Galaxy Step By Step
Hello again! How is everyone doing? Are we all bored of Christmas yet? Today I wanted to show you a step by step of how to achieve this really simple galaxy face paint! I absolutely love this design, I always get at least one or two people choosing this design per gig (when their not having unicorns, butterflies or Spider man) but it’s the one my boyfriend always picks out when I say which design should I sacrifice! It does tend to be your slightly older children and teenagers that pick this design, and it works really well as an eye design as well as a mask. I’ll often get kids point it out to me on the board saying ‘I want this sparkly one!’, and its one that I have on the board all year round. It’s so so simple and I think it looks great!
Global Pearl Baby Blue
DFX UV Yellow
DFX UV Pink
2 half size sponges
TFPS Aurora glitter refill in powder spray bottle with locking nozzle
I start off behaving my dark blue on one end of the sponge and the light blue on the other end, and using the natural contours of the face to place the darker blue, before going in to ‘highlight’ and blend with the light blue. I really like the effect of going around the nose too, but you don’t have to! If you’ve got a slightly older child, you can also try and get a bit of the darker blue in the eyelid crease too, but if you don’t have time or you’ve got someone who doesn’t like their eyes being done it’s not a big issue. I also used to dap in some Cameleon plum Fairy and thistle as well as a bit of global dark blue, but it doesn;doesn’t really add much and it takes so much longer!
Take your second sponge and load with pink and yellow uv. I used to incorporate all of the uv colours, but it just took too long, so these were the colours I decided worked best. I like to place them on top of the cheek bones and just above the eyebrows, just to add a pop of highlight.
I love using a toothbrush. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again now and I’ll probably say it again in the future! I load up the toothbrush with UV Yellow first, and mainly place it in areas of the face I want to highlight, so cheekbones and brow bones. This means that when the UV Pink goes on top, you’ve got that highlight coming through. I just like the UV Yellow as a highlight colour, it’s personal preference!
Finish off by loading your toothbrush with white and put those stars on! Then take your glitter poofer and cover them in glitter. Job done in minutes!
This is a really quick design that I love doing. I really hope you have a go at this, play around with what colours work best for you, these are the colours I have nailed it down to for me, but we are all different! I would love to see your interpretations of this design! I’ve also taken it as a more full body design and a pre-natal design too, it’s so versatile!
I hope you have a fantastic Christmas and new year, if you have any questions, please let me know!
