Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee is fast approaching and what better way to celebrate than with some face paint!
The UK is set for a four-day weekend as celebrations begin on Thursday June 2 and continue until Sunday June 5.
Britons across the country will gather for street parties and events in honor of Queen Elizabeth’s 70-year reign.
Decorations already line the streets as everyone looks forward to this momentous anniversary.
If you want to have some fun, here are seven great face paint ideas to try…
It’s pretty obvious, but you can’t go wrong with a classic Union Jack face paint to celebrate the Jubilee – it’s Britain’s most iconic symbol after all!
You can go to town and turn your whole face into a flag, or keep things a little more low-key by making a small rectangle or a heart-shaped Union Jack.
If you don’t feel like doing the whole Union Jack, why not just paint swirls in the colors of the flags instead.
Using red, white and blue paint and a paintbrush, create a swirling pattern on the side of your face for a chic Union Jack look.
Another great makeup option to celebrate the Jubilee is a crown honoring Queen Lizzie herself.
Again, there are endless options with this one. From crowns all over the face to small crowns on the forehead, the choice is yours.
When you think of the Queen, what do you think of first? London of course!
The city is the home of Queen Elizabeth, and where the iconic Buckingham Palace is located, so a London bus face paint design would definitely get compliments at the Jubilee Street Party.
Along the same lines as the London bus, you can create a Beefeater design using black, red, and gold face paint.
Officially known as the Yeomen Warders, the Beefeaters are the Queen’s personal guards who patrol Buckingham Palace and the Tower of London.
If you want a prettier design, why not make a butterfly in the colors of the Union Jack.
A butterfly around the eyes features on one of the most famous and timeless face paint designs – and we can see why!
Finally, you can’t go wrong with flowers painted in red, white and blue for a pretty Jubilee look.
Like the butterfly, these can be done on the side of the face, around the forehead, or even on your arms.
