This recipe for face paint first appeared as a guest post on Hearty Natural's blog in 2013. Hearty Naturals Coconut oil makes an edible, all-natural, non-toxic base for face paint and stage makeup. It even acts as a natural moisturizer. When it comes time to clean off the makeup, the coconut oil wipes off with warm water. If there is still a color stain remaining, use fresh coconut oil as a makeup remover.
