I have a turkey hunt coming up in May, so in preparation I thought it would be fun to try my hand at a new concealment option: camo face paint. Hunter's Specialties was kind enough to send some products to test, which are featured in the video: the Camo-Compac 5 Color Military Makeup Kit and the new Speed Camo Tri-Color Makeup.

I found that the Speed Stick was a great tool for quickly applying a lot of paint at once, which is especially helpful for the base layer. Simply apply the stick directly to your face using your selected colors. The oils on your face help to soften the paint, making it easier to apply right out of the box. For the Camo Compac, you need to use your fingers or a make-up sponge to apply it. Since it was difficult to soften right out of the packaging, I found that it was best when I used my fingernail to blend the lighter colors, and use it around my eyes and ears. Once I took my nail to the colors they were easier to work with.

To get the camo face paint off I used some Camo-Off Camouflage Make-Up Remover Wipes from Hunter's Specialties, and I have to say I was very impressed by how quickly and easily they removed the face paint.

Overall, it was a fun thing to try and I am definitely taking these products into the field to disguise myself from those super-sighted gobblers!
