The Big Blog of Unicorn Inspiration!

by Heather Green

The Big Blog

Every season has a trend. Ever since Starbucks introduced the Unicorn Frappucino the world has gone Unicorn crazy! You can find magical unicorn horns at every tween shop, “unicorn” hair ( rainbow hair) has made a comeback, and the unicorn onesie is harder to find than a needle in a haystack. Its no surprise that the unicorn phenomena found its way to the face painting world.

The Unicorn design is no where near “new” but because Face painters are super duper crafty we have evolved this magical design and taken it to a new level. This blog was created to inspire, share, and be a keep sake for all things unicorn. The internet moves so fast and its easy to miss all the amazing art work that flows through our timelines. I do my best so save them all, repost them on our social media sites and now add them in stone to a blog page for others to share, report, pin and replicate. Remember, art isn’t made with our brushes, its made with our hearts. Every time you create magic on a child, or even an adult you are sharing the love of art. Keep that going and keep on sharing. If you have a unicorn design that you would like to include in this blog PLEASE email me at 

Without further delay here’s a collection of Unicorn Face Painting ideas, inspiration and total eye candy!
