How to make face paint in Horizon: Forbidden West

Face paints in Horizon: Forbidden West are unlockable cosmetics that can be applied to Aloy’s face to change her appearance. They serve no purpose other than as an alternative aesthetic for the main character. Throughout the game you will meet many characters with one or another cosmetic on their faces. Using the ones you have unlocked, you can join them and represent your favorite tribe.

How to change face paint

At the very beginning of the game Horizon: Forbidden West, you may be wondering how to change the paint on the face – despite the mention of it after completing some tasks and in the statistics menu, it seems that there is no such possibility. However, face paint is not something you can change at the very beginning, so don’t worry about overlooking it.

Horizon: Forbidden West has special facial color-changing merchants and can be found in the major settlements of Searing Spear, Boulevard, and Thornmarsh. You will most likely reach Searing Spear first, of course, during your journey. There, look for a merchant with an icon that looks like a pickaxe.

In Searing Spear, the merchant will first have a quest for you that you can complete to unlock his services. After that, you can return at any time and pay shards to have your decorative face paint changed. The face paint merchants in the Boulevard and Thornmarsh will be open when you arrive at these locations, and they have no associated side quests.

Other ways to use face paint

Face paints can also be changed in photo mode at any time, although this is limited by the mode itself. Once you exit photo mode, the face paint will be removed.

This is mainly for photo adjustments, as you can change Aloy’s pose, facial expression, face paints, as well as the usual environment and art settings.

How to unlock more face paints

As previously mentioned, face paints can be unlocked throughout Horizon: Forbidden West. While you’ll have a few paints carried over from Zero Dawn at the start of the game, many more will be rewarded upon completion of certain quests.

The rewards for any of the quests in your journal can be viewed below the description, so you can check if there is a quest you want to prioritize to unlock the new paint.

Face paints are available in a variety of styles, including the solid and rich colors of the Tenakts, or the softer, more subtle marks favored by the Utaru tribe. Certain outfits also include body markings, so there are plenty of opportunities to match the face paint and complete the look.
