Panda makeup: simple instructions for carnival makeup for children.

Children love to be made up at carnivals, birthdays and kindergarten parties. But not all parents are grand masters of the art of drawing. But the next make-up idea is super simple and with a little practice will succeed even inexperienced beginners. However, since you need to make up the whole face, you should first test the makeup on the child’s forearm. Apply it to the child’s skin and let it rest for an hour. If during this time there are no allergies, the skin is not itchy and no redness is visible, then you can use the makeup. But first you need to apply a foundation. Greasy creams are best for this purpose. In this way, you will protect the delicate skin of the child from the effects of the weather, and at the same time ensure that the makeup does not smudge. Then you can use a fat-based makeup and apply white paint on the face with a sponge. Then draw the black circles around the eyes with a black makeup pencil and fill them with aqua makeup. No later than 6 hours after you make up the child’s face, you should remove the makeup. Depending on what color you used, you can remove the child’s makeup with water, soap or baby oil.

Admittedly: It’s incredibly fun to put on makeup for carnival or fancy dress party. Children’s birthday parties also offer the opportunity to dress up and make up as an animal. Especially in corona times it is a welcome change for the kids.
