Adding face painting to a party or event can help children (and adults) bring their fantasies to life, and these fantasies make anything possible!

Now-a-days, face painters don’t just paint faces; they are adding fun things like glitter tattoos,

Guests walk away with such a fun (semi-permanent) memory of the time they’ve had at your party.

Here's a list of considerations to think about when hiring a face painter for your next event:

1. Are they good with Children and Adults alike?

Do they have a Working with Children Check to be working at a Children's party?

2. Do they use high quality, suitable paint?

A paint that states it's non-toxic isn't always safe for the skin.

3. Check the glitter they are using - metallic craft glitter should not be used for face painting.

4. Ensure they have water or wipes to be able to clean their hands between each guest.
