I got body paint and I’m SO EXCITED FOR HALLOWEEEN!

If you want to see the full glory of this look check out my Instagram for the video(s):

Here’s the written out steps to the video tutorial

1. Taking NYX Eyebrow marker, outline the edges of the muscles based on your own muscular structure. I just flexed my Quad to find where my quads start and end.

I based my picture on basic anatomical knowledge but here’s a good diagram:

I also included that white fascial tissue on the side of your leg called the IT band, the white pop of color looked good with all the red

2. Put down a base shade of pink (I mixed the red and white in my Mehron Body Paint Palette), and used a cheap set of Acrylic Paint Brushes.

3. Next your going to draw red lines, mixed red/brown lines, and black lines going from thick to narrow as you get to the center of the muscle. I like to use the thick flat acrylic brush so I can adjust the width.

4. Final Step of finishing the muscle, I use a new brush for ONLY white paint and highlight the center of the muscles.

5. Repeat for all your desired muscles.

6. For the knee cap and the patellar tendon I used the Ecotools blending sponge to blend in the shadows and edges, adding brown for the shadows of the bone.


And that’s it my friends for this super easy tutorial!
