How to Do Face Painting - Halloween Design

This is my entry to the Week 21 of the Techie She Lucky Blogger Weekly Giveaways. This week’s prize is $10 Paypal credits from Shydub of Impulsive Shopper.

Last weekend, I tried to do some face painting on my daughter as a preparation for her Halloween costume come November 2 for their school activity. We do not have time to go shopping for a Halloween costume, so I just improvised by using things that we already have at home. Saved us some money too. Anyway, for her costume, she will be wearing a simple witch's costume.

For her face painting, I just used some make-up though you can also use real face paint but I find it messier. With make-up, I can make better and cleaner design.



To make the witch's face paint:
  • Put pink blush-on and pink eye-shadow.
  • Use the eye brow pencil or eye liner (I used wet eye liner), to make the eye-brows just above the nose to the forehead ending with a swirl.
  • Using the same pen/eye liner, I drew spider web on the left cheek and above the right eye.
  • On the right cheek, I also drew sort of a vine with a flower at the end.
  • Then, I added some yellow (you can use silver or gold) dots on the drawn eyebrow and the web for added design.

I also made a simple witch's hat from black cartolina.
  • First, you make a cone. Cut out the excess at the bottom. 
  • Then, using the base of the cone, draw a circle on another black cartolina. Draw a parallel circle that is bigger than the first circle.
  • Cut out the circle on the lines you drew. You will end up with a donut shape.
  • Then, tape the donut shape cartolina to the base of the cone.
  • You can make cut outs of whatever design you like to paste it on the hat or just add a ribbon like what I have done to my daughter's hat.

To finish her costume, she wore a black dress then we had some photo session with her sisters and a friend.  Her two sisters also had me do a simple butterfly face paint just for fun. I had made a post before about how to make a butterfly face paint. By the way, the design of the witch's face paint I got from a hub on Halloween face painting and there are more face painting ideas there for the Halloween which you can check out.

That's it for this post.

Which Brand of Electric Fan Do You Recommend?

It’s really hot now and it’s so untimely that one of our fans gave up on us. We only have 2 working. Actually, since we came here in the Philippines 2 years ago, we’ve already bought 6 fans and I’m not satisfied with how they worked for only a short time. We bought 2 Standard industrial stand fans, one broke in less than a year while the other one is still working. We bought 1 Union desk fan and this one lasted 2 years. Then, we bought 1 Dowell stand fan because of a sale but then it was defective within one month. We brought it to their service center, they got it fixed but then the entire head (with the fan blade) of the fan flew off (nasira ang hinang).

What's the Best Shampoo For Getting Rid of Head Lice?

When my family was staying in the Middle East, my daughters had no problems with head lice or “kuto.” A head louse (lice, plural) is a six-legged parasite that feeds on blood in the human head. Lice do not jump or fly, but crawl only. They do not carry any disease, but they suck blood and cause itchiness. Here’s a photo showing the life cycle of head lice. The life cycle of head lice.

Sisa Monologue Script in English

Last second quarter, my Grade 8 daughter's English class teacher asked them to present a Monologue in class. The teacher asked the students to choose a character on whom they want to base their monologue. My daughter chose Sisa of Noli Me Tangere. The problem is that most of the Sisa monologue Script that can be found on the internet are in Filipino or Tagalog. You can't find one in English. Well, there's one but it was very, very short, just one paragraph, I think. And so, we had no choice but to make a Sisa monologue script in English. It's not required for the students to make their own script and so I helped my daughter produce one. I just looked up a good Sisa script in Tagalog online and translated it. Thank God for Google Translate as it helped me do 50% of the work. The Google translation was not 100% accurate, so I still had to edit it. Here's the final script (515 words), which I want to share with you (and other people looking for Sisa monologue
