Welcome, Mothering.com readers!

We hope you enjoyed our video on how to make your own face paints.

To DIY-for face paints:
Note: Making this face paint is not an exact science. The portions below are just for guidance. Depending on the brand of diaper cream and food coloring you use, you may need to adjust the amount of the various ingredients. Don't be afraid to experiment. The results will be worth it!

  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • ˝ tsp water
  • ˝ tsp diaper rash cream
  • 1-2 drops food coloring
In a small bowl, mix water and cornstarch. Add baby cream and food color and mix until creamy.
Use all natural and/or organic ingredients, whenever possible.

Not a DIY-er? Buy German-made face pencils from aToyGarden.com or handmade, vegan, mineral Halloween makeup from Pink Quartz Minerals (and Etsy artisan).
