2 Minute Quick and Easy Snowman Face Painting Design


This is a very simple, and fast design that the kids seem to love.  You can also add some white glitter to the design to really impress the kids!  this will fit nicely on a cheek or a arm.


Medium #4 Round Brush
Small Round #1 (1/16″) Brush

paper towels or cloth
water container
(optional) Fine Mist Spray bottle with water
optional) Baby wipes

Colors used in this picture:

Black Face Paint
White Face Paint
Red Face Paint

Optional: Amerikan Body Art Cosmetic Glitter – Holographic White (Sheer)


1. Starting with the white face paint and the medium round brush, paint a circle where you want your design to go.



2. Continue to add two more circles on top of each other, overlapping slightly.


3. Next, using the smaller round brush and the red face paint, start to add the base of the scarf. The fastest way for me to do it, is to position my brush to the side of the snowman, push down with my brush, then flick up towards the center. Do this three times on each side.   Practicing a decent teardrop stoke will help with speed and accuracy in face painting.  No worries if this is perfect. You can easily fill in or cover any discrepancies your not completely happy with with the red paint.


4.Finish the red scarf by adding two lines to the side. Using the black paint and the small round brush, start to add the nose, eyes, and mouth. Also add three buttons on the middle circle. Add a top hat, by painting a rectangle type shape, and adding a oval shape at the bottom. Paint thin little stick arms, and don’t forget to add the little fingers! You can stop here if you are pressed for time, or go on to the next step.



5.Finally add some white snow, dots, and stars all around the snowman. Add some highlights to the top hat, and you are done. Top off with glitter if you want a fast and easy dazzle effect.



Easily add glitter by using a spray bottle with water, and spritzing the design lightly at least 12 inches away.  Use a poof-able cosmetic grade  glitter to add evenly all around. Use different colors to really create an effect.

Thank you for viewing! I hope this helps you to keep the line moving and keep those smiles coming!
