Is face paint safe for everyone?

Yes! I use only high quality, cosmetic face paint and glitter. However, face paint is not recommended for under 2s. This is because very young children have sensitive skin and reactions are more likely. They are also unlikely to be able to sit still! If your under 2 year-old expresses an interest, I can paint their arm which is likely to be less sensitive than their face.

Does it have to be on my face?

No! I can adapt most designs to be on the arm or leg some children and adults prefer this to the feeling of paint on the face.

Is it hygienic?

As a professional face painter, I follow strict hygiene rules:

  • use a clean sponge for each person
  • wash brushes thoroughly between each face
  • refresh water regularly
  • avoid painting on lips and noses where possible
  • keep work areas clean
  • use hand sanitiser regularly
  • no painting of people who are unwell or have contagious skin conditions

How do I make a booking?

Use the "Enquire" or "Call Me" buttons below. A booking fee of $100 is required to secure your booking. This fee is non-transferable and non-refundable.

How do I pay?

The balance of your booking is payable 72 hours before the event by bank transfer. If you cancel your booking within 48 hours of the event, the balance is non-refundable.

What do I need to provide for you?

I will need two chairs and space for my portable workstation (1m x 1m) in a shaded and sheltered area, if outside, and ventilation if inside.

What if more people want face paint than planned?

If more people want painting than agreed, or some of your guests are late, and you would like me to stay longer than the expected finish time, the extra time will be charged at $70 per half hour. However, this is only possible if I do not have another booking immediately following yours.

Are you insured?

Yes! I have public liability insurance and a valid working with children check. Please ask me if you need my reference number.

How do I remove face paint?

Massage a mild baby shampoo or facial cleanser into the skin and wipe paint away with a damp washcloth. Be mindful to keep paint and glitter out of eyes. Flush eyes with clean water if contact occurs. If stains remain, rub olive oil, coconut oil or baby oil into the skin and rub gently with a damp washcloth.

General health and safety

I will not paint any child who does not want to be painted. Distressed children will not be painted.

I cannot paint anyone who appears unwell or with medical conditions such as cold sores, psoriasis, open wounds, broken skin, conjunctivitis or other eye infections, runny nose, infected skin, headlice. This is for the health and safety of other people at the party.
