You know if you have a young one with the spirit of a Leopard. (Even though Leopard may only come out when it’s time to go to bed!) This face is so bold you don’t need a costume. And it’s easy - get it in 4 steps.
STEP 1: Sponge on a full yellow face starting at the peak of the forehead and sweeping around the side of the face in one long stroke to the point of the chin. Work across the face, skipping the eyes, the nose and the area above the mouth.
STEP 2: Use your brush to fill in the area above the mouth with white.
STEP 3: Again with the brush, paint in all the black: the eyebrows, the whiskers and the three semicircles on each cheek.
STEP 4: For a final touch, mix up a little yellow and red, then smear some onto the nose and dab a little into the semicircles.
