50 Fierce Face Paint Features

From Monochrome Makeup to Bizarre Eyebrow Tattoos

— March 27, 2012 — Fashion
One of the most anticipated, well-received and talked about magazine covers of 2011 was Kate Moss’ Vogue Paris cover where she was covered in face paint and made up to look like David Bowie, and these face paint editorials demonstrate why the transforming abilities of this makeup are so intriguing.

Whether a fashion shoot is going for a tribal look and uses face paint to achieve that aesthetic, or super creative artists create moving face paintings and body art in motion, these face paint editorials are sure to blow your mind.

Sometimes face paint editorials can take a wrong turn and raise issues of racism and insensitivity. Whatever your take on these shoots may be, there’s no denying the fascinating nature of face paint.
