Department of Fashion Design conducted a Competition on “Face painting” on 18/04/2022 i.e on Monday for the students of fashion for all semesters. Face painting has been around for much longer than we might think! Defined as “the application of cosmetic paint to a person’s face,” face painting has been used for thousands of years. Face painting, simply defined, is the act of applying cosmetic paint to a person’s face for entertainment, theatrical, or even symbolic reasons. We see examples of face painting at Halloween or at school carnivals and other charity functions where face painter’s set up booths. It’s also not a craft that’s limited to Halloween or to entertain small children. Once you learn the art of face painting, you will be surprised at the number of ways you can put your skill to use, either for fun or profit
The use of face paints can be traced back to the indigenous people of Australia and Africa. During ceremonies, tribes people would adorn their faces and bodies with clay, charcoal, and other natural pigments. Their choice of colors would depend on the available raw materials located in that region, such as red clays and blue dyes from berries. In North America, face paint was an integral part of Indian culture. Effects would be added to the decorations by using dust or feathers, or any number of other things that could be locally found. The evolution of body painting has now split off into various forms of decoration. Most noticeably you see the art of henna forming in India and the Middle East
