Face Painting and Arm Painting

Sheroes Entertainment was hired by the Ocean Institute in Dana Point as a fabulous face painter for the weekend Halloween event. [She] was professional and exceptionally talented, and most importantly the children LOVED her! I would HIGHLY recommend Sheroes Entertainment for a birthday party or any fun children’s event!

When I heard she’d ordered a face painter I wasn’t impressed but when I saw what that artist was able to do I was stunned - I’ve never seen face painting at that level!

Frequently Asked Questions

Is It Skin Safe?

  • Yes! We only use FDA approved super fine cosmetic grade glitters, face paint, and cosmetic glues in our party and event services.

How Do I Remove Face Paint?

  • We recommend using any major waterproof makeup remover such as Neutrogena Wet Wipes to remove your wearable face paint or glitter accents.

  • In the event that minor skin discoloration occurs please apply your favorite face-safe lotion and let it sit; most remaining pigment will disappear within 24 hours.

I'm Having A Christmas / Halloween / Other Type of Party; Do You Have Options for Me?

Please let us know if you are having a specific party theme when you make your reservation. We can often prepare theme-specific options with advanced notice. 

What is Black Light Face Paint?

A black light, also referred to as a UV-A light, Wood's light, or simply ultraviolet light, is a violet filter colored lamp that emits long wave (UV-A) ultraviolet light and not much visible light. Black light face paint is a special neon colored face paint that is expressly designed to glow brightly under that type of light. Black light neon face paint is NOT the same as glow in the dark face paint. It appears lightly colored and watery under normal sunlight and does not glow by itself. Under the black light these special neon colored face paints come "alive" to the eye and glows brightly. You MUST have a black light for black light face paint to be visible at dark.

What Costume Does the Artist Wear?

  • Our professional face painters arrive in our company shirt and tidy pants or skirt unless otherwise requested.

What kinds of designs can they do?

  • Our carnival-style face painters can do children's face paint party designs based on things like: fairies, princesses, pirates, snakes, super heroes, super heroines, unicorns, Frozen themed color designs, dolphins, dragons, butterflies, cartoon characters, monsters, tigers, dogs, cats, clowns, mermaids, masquerade masks, flower child, Hawaiian flowers, crowns, fake tattoos, and more!

  • Our UV-style face painters work with texture, contrast, organic designs, floral designs, tribal art, and BoHo / Burning Man style requests.

I love that your team approaches painting like artists. You were so good with the kids. I can’t wait to have you back!

Face Paint Safety Information

We've been appalled while reading professional news from around the country to hear that cheap store bought brands are putting lead and caustic materials that brand skin in to their products. 100% of our face paint, body paint, and glitter kit materials are FDA approved* for cosmetic use.

We also have the following policies in place to ensure the health and well being of your guests:

Teens and adults have options too - we offer pretty face paint flower designs to accent faces, hands, or arms.

Teens and adults have options too - we offer pretty face paint flower designs to accent faces, hands, or arms.

  • We will only face paint consenting individuals, a child must give their consent to be painted. Many 2-4 year old children will prefer a hand art design that they can look at instead of a face paint design.

  • We will not paint over open wounds, sores, or broken skin.

  • We will not paint over any rashes or on individuals who have signs of eye or skin infections.

  • We will not paint near a nose, mouth, or eyes on any individual who appears to be sick or recently have been sick.

  • Our face painters reserve the right to decline to paint any symbols, words, or on any body parts that they are uncomfortable with for any reason and at any time.

  • Guests are not allowed to paint themselves or touch face paint kit contents.

* FDA approval excludes UV black light face paint which is professional cosmetic grade.

I’ve always hated face paint... the kids love it but someone always paints her face at parties and it ruins the photos. Your team was amazing though. You listened and made her feel beautiful while still letting me see HER. Thank you!
