As the World Cup is round the corner, a lot of people are planning to go for the match live. Here are tips on how to paint your face for the match.



1 Expert help:

If you are heading out with friends to watch a match, then it is a fun idea to have your friends paint your face with colours in motifs or flags. But if you have more time in your hands and really want to make a statement, then get some experts help. Salons offer funky face paints and temporary tattoos and they often last just a day.



2 Colour counts:

It’s important to keep in mind the colours that are used on your face. Go for natural and safe colours. Some people may develop allergies; so do a patch test on your arm before you try out the colour on your face.



3 Be careful:

If a rash appears on your skin after using the colour, consult a dermatologist. It is anyway advisable to apply some moisturiser before you try out any face paint, so that the colour does not penetrate through the pores. Also, avoid applying thick layers on your eyelids, as this may cause eye irritation.



4 Design doodles:

The design you choose should reflect the team or a player that you are supporting. You can even get innovative by adding your own little message along with the motif.



5 Stencil smart:

If you are not too good with designs and doodles, get the flag shaped stencils from any local stationary shop, and just fill in the colours.
