What is your setup?

The artist(s) will arrive 10-20 minutes before the event start time to set up. Unless otherwise discussed the artist will bring their own equipment, tables, and chairs.

The client need only provide a well-lit and flat workspace. We ask that the setup area be protected from the elements such as rain, direct sun, high winds, etc.

How do I remove products?

Is there a minimum age?

Safety is our top priority! Event Services are best suited for ages 3+. Although our products are cosmetic grade and safe for the skin, children under 3 may have increased sensitivity. 


Balloons can be a choking hazard. Therefore, artists will not give balloons to children under 3, nor hand a balloon to a parent with a child under 3.

All products are cosmetic grade and should be removed using gentle products made for the skin, such as makeup removers or cosmetic oils.


Face Paint:

  1. Apply a small amount of soap directly to the skin

  2. Add a little water to create a lather over the design

  3. Gently wipe the paint off with a damp cloth or paper towel

*Some colors may lightly stain the skin; apply baby oil or makeup remover to the area and wipe away with a cloth. Repeat the soap/water process if necessary.


Waterproof Face Paint:

  1. Apply a gentle makeup remover or baby oil directly over the design, let it sit for a few minutes to help break down the face paint, then gently wipe it away with a cloth

  2. Follow the Face Paint removal instructions above for any residual paint

Glitter Tattoos:

  1. Apply baby oil directly over the design, let sit for a few minutes to help break down the cosmetic body glue, then gently wipe away with a cloth
