Easy Baby Butterfly – how to face paint video tutorial

In this video tutorial, you’ll learn how to face paint a super fast, fun, and feminine baby butterfly in less than 60 seconds!!!

Girls of all ages love this pretty and popular face paint butterfly design, and you will too because it’s one of the fastest and easiest butterflies you can paint. Perfect for busting lines, or making quick cash. At my pay-per-face gigs, I charge $3 for a pair of baby butterflies!

I’ve used Global Colours Funstrokes ‘Hawaii’ for the body of the butterfly, but you can use just about any one stroke split cake. Why not match the colours to your model’s clothing, or let them pick their favourite colour?

TIP: I’ve created this quick face painting tutorial as simply as possible, but you don’t have to stop at the basics. If you have time, you can add a few dots to the tip of the wings, some glitter, and/or a flower headband – or all of the above!

But remember, ALWAYS use quality, cosmetic grade products, available from

For this design I have used:

  • Flat brush size 12
  • Round brush size 4
  • Global Colours Funstroke ‘Hawaii’
  • Washable practice face paint board
