Unicorns are one of the most popular face paint requests of all time. Do you know the basics of how to paint a unicorn? They are so quick and easy once you’ve mastered the basic shapes, but sometimes it can be tricky to make the hair quickly while also looking pretty. Hair can be any color, short, long, fancy, simple, or any number of changes! To help with this dilemma, I made a video showing not just one way to do unicorn hair, but three ways! With this video you’ll be able to draw your unicorn’s mane using a sponge, brush, or a one stroke cake. Try all three methods and see which one works the best for you. You may be surprised to see that you prefer one over the other.

You can also try fun color combos for your unicorn’s hair, including rainbow(using a rainbow cake or a one stroke cake,) or maybe blue and green(for when you’re tired of painting pink and purple over and over!) You can even change the color of the unicorn from the typical white to a color that will match the hair. Try a pink unicorn with lime green hair, or a blue unicorn with neon yellow hair! Step out of your comfort zone and see what kind of color combos you can come up with!

Of course, these aren’t the only ways to face paint a unicorn, but they are a good place to start. I’m using Art Factory face paint brushes and sponges in this video, and you can get your own at this link.
