How to do the Mad Hatter’s make-up

Start by applying white face paint like this all over your face and neck. Make sure it’s well blended.

Next, paint your eyebrows with a light orange face paint like this.

Paint some small lines to give the illusion of hair and repeat this stage with a darker shade of orange face paint to add texture.

Then apply some light blue face paint to your eyelids and blend it with a clean brush to soften the edges.

Apply pink face paint like this under one eye.

And apply orange face paint like this under the other.

Add detail with a thin brush and white face paint.

Then contour the cheeks with pink face paint.

And contour the sides of the nose with pink face paint.

Next, fill in the lips with pink face paint.

And last but not least, put on your Mad Hatter costume!
