A quick bunny design is a major help for kids and parents wanting something simple.  Lots of kids don't like paint on their eye lids and this bunny design is a life saver.

The Olaf design is super cute! 

I love this and know for me it would take a little time to get this on someone's arm or face.  It's actually not too difficult but the outlining of a design like Olaf can be challenging.

No shaky or unsteady hands allowed!

Butterfly designs never go out of style. 

They are super popular with girls, teens and moms.  Butterflies can be done different ways.  The one above is fairly quick as it only covers one side of the face. 

You can cover a child's face or only do the cheek area.  It's up to you and, of course, the wiggly-ness of little customer.

The elephant design is cute using a one stroke arty brush.  One stroke designs are quick, impressive and save you lots of time. 

What a great choice for cheek or arm art for kids new to face painting.  It works well as a design for both boys and girls.  By using a one stroke paint you can quickly nail this design.  Again, with practice you'll get the outlining done pretty well, too.

Face painting instructions - fast, impressive and fun!

Elmo is fast, fun, cute and great for boys and girls.  It's a perfect design for a child's cheek or arm.  It also looks artistic while not being too difficult to replicate. 

When you have a line of kids further than you can count, fast and impressive designs rule the day!  The flower fairy face painting instructions above is a big time saver.  It's done with an arty cake, a flat brush and no outlining.  Simply create the crown's center and corresponding strokes alongside to fill in for balance. 

Using another flat brush to pick up two shades of green and you can quickly add the leaves, finishing with white tear drops, stars and dots for further embellishment.

Once again, the above easy giraffe is terrific for a child who can keep their eyes open.  Very cool for boys and girls and will go over fabulously with parents.

The icicle design is perfect for teenagers and adult women wanting something nice without covering their entire face.  It's an easy, go-to design for fairs, festivals, community events and private parties. 

Make it even more special with bling, glitter and gems.

You cannot go wrong with a Minnie Mouse design on your board.  Almost all girls (and their moms!) love Minnie Mouse bow face painting.  It's girly and super cute!

While Minnie Mouse if popular the owl face painting is impressive for all of its colors used.  It's not hard to paint this and it doesn't need to cover the entire face. 

Girls will enjoy this one for sure!

So cute and a popular choice for boys and girls.
