Once a year I get the chance to paint up a few wanna-be Easter bunnies — and I love it! Normally, my weekly schedule is filled with brides and bridal parties, especially during spring. Besides the occasional makeover and teaching opportunity, face painting and creative makeup is this professional makeup artist’s favorite past time. If you are looking for a way to dress up for Easter or dress up your children, you need to print this tutorial. It’s easy to use, I promise.
For this makeup application you need very white makeup or face paint, triangular sponges, cream blush in pink, black eyeliner and an angled eyeshadow brush.
Start with clean skin. Now comes the fun part. Outline your bunny mask using the eyeliner. I start between the brows, draw above and around the eye and finish at the upper lip. At the center of the lower lip, draw straight down to the chin to give your face that “rabbit” mouth. If you aren’t confident in your drawing ability, draw with a light brown eyeliner first. You can always redraw if you need to.
Pat the outlined area using the white makeup and a triangular sponge. Stay in the lines but don’t worry if you blur the edges, you will outline them again when you are finished. Redraw the mouth, adding the line under the nose and create arcs at the outside of your mouth. Add a few dots to indicate whiskers in the arcs.
Pat a new sponge with the creamy pink blush. Press the blush over the eyes, on the nose and at the cheeks lightly. The pink should be noticeable but not too bright.
Use an angled eyeshadow brush to draw white fluffy hairs in between the eyes. Use the black eyeliner to draw eyeliner under the eye to illustrate long lashes.
Finally draw the outline again to make the “mask” stand out. Voila! You are finished.
