I use only professional “FDA approved safe-for-skin” hypoallergenic cosmetic grade face paint. Technically it is theatrical make-up. It’s made with all natural ingredients and will wash off completely without scrubbing, and leaving no stain. The so-called “face paint” found in your local stores such as Hobby Lobby and Michael’s, contains lead and is NOT FDA approved-for -skin. The glitter I use is also “FDA approved-for-skin” and made from polyester. It will not scratch the eye should it accidentally get in the eyes. The glitter found in local stores is made from metal and NOT approved for use on skin. I’m sure you know what could happen if the metal glitter got in the eyes. Even the glue I use for gems is FDA approved-for-skin. All of the professional face painting products cannot be bought in your local stores. So if you wonder why face painters charge what we do....it’s cause these products are not cheap.😉
I’ve been doing face painting (and body painting) for many years, have a degree in art, and truly love doing it. There’s nothing like the smile on a kid’s face when they first look in the mirror after being painted!
I can typically paint about 15 kids per hour, depending on the design. Full-face and more details take a little longer though.
Glitter tattoos take about 3 minutes to do because the glue must fully dry on the skin before the glitter can be applied. So I usually do 15-20 kids per hour.
I can come up with face paint designs for any theme. I’ve done birthdays, fairs, festivals, Mardi Gras, mall events, school events, Corporate events, grand openings, the Hollywood Children’s Festival of the Arts at Paramount Studios, hospitals, restaurants, etc.
