Halloween at home is the perfect chance to take some photos to share with friends and family, so why not get creative with face paint? Sometimes the most striking looks are the most simple, and our face paints are all skin-friendly and washable with water - meaning less mess to clean up after! Here’s a couple of our favourite looks...


To create this frightening feline look, all you’ll need is our Brush Pen Halloween Pack, with the black and white mixed together to create the grey. Make sure to draw the outline of how you want your undead cat to look first. Use the White Brush Pen to highlight the fur, and add in the orange to create scars and blood drips from the fangs.


Using just three spooky colours from the Halloween Face Paint Kit you can bring this Spider Girl to life! Start by sponging on the Purple, then take the Black to paint on the spider webs and finish by using White for highlights! Pair this face paint with an all black outfit and your little ones will be ready to start spinning their webs!


For a ghastly look that will chill you to the bone, have a go at this Sugar Skull face paint design using the colourful Ultimate Party Pack! Start off with a white base, adding black circles around the eyes, a diamond on the nose, flourish on the forehead and stitches across the mouth. Then get creative and use your favourite colours to decorate your Sugar Skull with swirls and tear drops!
