St. Patricks Day Face Painting Ideas!


St Patrick's day is just around the corner!  Here are a few fun designs to inspire you! I do plan to add to this collection over the years, so be sure to check back every St Patrick's day! Like what you see? Make sure to like and follow us on Facebook to see all my latest designs as I post them!



Here's a fun leprechaun feet design! Ever worried that by adding more you'll get too busy or go too overboard? Here's a tip: take photos of your designs as you go along. That way if you think you've gone a tad overboard, you can "rewind" back to a previous state! It's like a real life undo button! I took a photo above, and then below you can see how I went crazy with the bling!!


This one above uses Glitter Glaze for the drippy mask base, and it is then outlined (gold) and dotted (colored "gems") with Liquid Bling! Up in the rainbow and surrounding the leprechaun I have used some Rainbow Pride Festival Glitter and Lucky Stars Pixie Paint! The little gold buckles on his shoes are also created with gold liquid bling!


This design above is super quick and simple, yet still impressive as it incorporates split cakes (I'm using Global summer crush here) and also chunky glitter! The glitter I used here for the gold pouring out of the pot is gold Pixie Paint "Lucky Stars" , and the rainbow I added some Rainbow Pride Festival Glitter!

 This smiley shamrock design above would be a great place to stick on some 3-dimensional googly eyes! I like to use the new Pros-Aide II which still sticks just as good as the original, but is easier to remove when it's time to wash off. The original is great for glitter tattoos, but you don't necessarily want this stuff to stick for weeks on your forehead, haha! Here I've used Global's "Leanne's Lollipop" for my rainbow, and then added some more "Rainbow Pride" Festival Glitter sprinkling down underneath!

Below is a more unique take on the pot-o-gold design, with an angle of the rainbow that you don't normally see. This one enables you to put more focus on the pot of gold itself. Try blinging out the gold with some gemstones or gold liquid bling!


Here's a little step by step with a list of tools I used!

A quick, fun design that looks great with some metallic gold makeup and rainbow cakes!

I always love cheek art, because it's so versatile. You can put it on little hands and arms for kids who are nervous about getting painted on their face, yet you can turn it into a forehead or eye design by expanding it with stencil pattern backgrounds, chunky glitter and more! Here are a few little illustrations to start from that you can make big or small!






Here are a few larger designs I did myself just for fun....

This one I did for a St Patrick's day contest/challenge online!

A St. Patrick's themed dragon!

This one I painted for "National Cereal Day!" Look back into my blog history throughout the year 2017 and you can see every one of my daily posts, corresponding to that day's "national day of whatever!"


I hope you all have a super fun St. Patrick's Day! Happy painting!
