8 Emoji Face Paint Tutorials To Really Express Yourself This Halloween


With texting being one of the most significant ways we communicate with one another, why not transform yourself into an Emoji this Halloween. My guess is these yellow expressions are going to be one of the most popular costumes of 2017. Not only is this a great way to express to everyone how you feel, but its super easy to achieve too. Emojis are the perfect instant DIY costumes, so no need to do much planning on your end, and if you are anything like me, this is the perfect Halloween costume.

There are only a few steps you will need to do to master one of these Emoji looks.

Step One: Start off with a fresh, clean face. Then add a moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated. The moisturizer will act as a base, keeping the face paint on longer, and protecting your skin too.

Step Two: Use a makeup brush or sponge to slop on that yellow water-based body paint. You can paint it all over, covering your entire face or create a circle outline on your pretty face, and then fill it in.

Step Three: Pick the Emoji face you want to create. If you wish to paint heart eyes, stencil a heart outline with an eyeliner pen. Then color it in with some red water-based body paint. You can also use these general steps to create tears on your face.

Step Four: You are now a real life Emoji. That was so easy.

Now that's just my simple step-by-step transformation. If you are looking for a more advanced approach check out one of these Emoji tutorials below.
