With the creation of more affordable face paints and accessories, face painting has become more common at lots of different parties and whilst it’s true that most people call professional painters to paint the faces of their party goers, more and more mums and dads are prepared to have a go themselves.

The selection of designs that are offered at any party will, of course, depend on the event for which faces are to be painted.
 
Face painting is a growing trend at Halloween parties and it is now quite common especially at children’s parties. Face painting is the best alternative to buying costly costumes or masks for Halloween parties and most find it easier to wear than a cumbersome mask for any length of time and with a full range of individual pots of face paint, as well as a huge collection of pre-assembled kits, whether your a professional face painter or an enthusiastic amateur, you'll find everything you'll need right here.
 
For Halloween parties, most take their face painting designs from the many available ideas that are to Snazaroo Ghost Face Painting Set for Halloween from Karnival Costumesbe found all around. Obviously at this time of year, it is interesting to add scary and frightening effects to the make-up design by using fake blood that can be painted over light coloured foundation. Scars on the face and body can also be painted on to give a scary look. The use of different colours and the effect of layering these colours can make the person look even more terrifying. And of course the overall design can be themed to the costume of a person to give an all-round haunting appearance.
 
At Karnival Costumes we’ve included a number of face-painting ideas which can be followed so that you can paint the face to achieve the desired look. And don't forget most pre-assembled face painting kits include detailed instructions. One of the simplest most commonly used face painting design is that of a ghost. The shape of the ghost design is basically triangular. With white paint, a loose triangle is painted and a wavy line is drawn to outline the ghost like appearance. All the area of the triangle is filled with white face paint and eyes are painted in with black paint. The final step is to make the smile of the ghost. The overall appearance is family friendly and one that most children find interesting.
 
Snazaroo Pumpkin and Tiger Face Painting set available from Karnival CostumesAnother idea that can be carried out for Halloween parties is to paint jack-o-lantern. In the beginning, a circle of orange paint is painted and when the orange paint is dried, then small triangles of black paint are added on this design for the nose and eyes. A smile is also painted with black colour as well. Then a green stem and a couple of leaves is added as a final step to complete the jack-o-lantern look.
 
Some other common ideas for Halloween designs include witches, skeletons, zombies, vampires and cats etc. All of these painting designs allow the person whose face is being painted, to see the world more easily than if they were wearing a mask. But don't panic if you really want a mask for your Halloween costume, we've a huge selectioon of them too!
