Cheek art is perfect for kids with bangs or who don’t want their whole face painted! As you may have noticed already, I am a great fan of designs that can be scaled up or down in details depending on how much time you have.
A key to painting fast designs that look impressive and striking is to make sure you don’t paint it too small.

Step 1: The One Stroke
For the first step one use one stroke and paint a curved line that comes to a point near the center focal point between the eyes. I use this style of one stroke base for a lot of my cheek art designs.
This line will be a good base in order to achieve balance for the rest of the design and help to pull it all together.
Step 2: Snowman Face Paint Main Shape
Next, I move on to painting the main shape of the snowman. I use a ½ angled brush for this — I load it in white and then dip the tip of it in a light blue color in order to give the snowman a bit more dimension.
As you can see, I don’t paint the whole snowman — only about half of it. The reason why I do this is so that when I move on to paint the details on the snowman they will be a lot easier to paint as they won´t be so tiny.
The fact that the snowman is bigger will make it the main focal point of the design and the design will have more of a “wow”-factor than if you painted it very small.
Step 3: The Snowman Outfit
For the hat and the scarf, I load my angled ½ brush with a light and a dark blue color.
As you can see, I keep the darkest blue color facing towards the head of the snowman — this mimics the direction of the light as it would be in real life, and voila — you have created a design that already has a 3-dimensional feel!
