Frequently Asked Questions

Face paints, like cosmetics, contain antimicrobial preservatives. These keep bacteria from growing in water based paints (and cosmetics in general) while being gentle and safe. Our brushes and sponges are cleaned regularly with antibacterial soap. Your child has a greater chance of catching a virus while waiting in line than from having their face painted. Additionally , we won't paint a child with a cold, runny nose, infectious looking eyes, or any type of skin condition, cuts,  or  rash.

As far as allergies, if you have sensitive skin please request a patch test prior to being painted.

Is Face Paint Safe For Skin?

A line manager could really help things along. It is amazing how much time it takes for clients to choose a design. Having a person to discuss designs with them prior to getting in the chair will reduce the time greatly. The other advantage to a line manager is ending the line.  We do our best to prevent people from getting in line if there won't be time to paint them, but a line manager can be dedicated to that job while we are painting. Please ask us about providing a dedicated line manager, or you can provide one.

Artist fees range between $85 and $110 per hour. Rates are based on service requesting, duration of event, and location. There is a  2 hour minimum booking. Multiple hour events are offered at a  discounted rate. (3+ hours)

I Would Like to Have a Face Painting Party for My  (1-4 year old) Child.

Face paint isn't paint, it's technically a cosmetic makeup specifically for skin.  We use only FDA compliant face / body paint for the skin because we are committed to the safety of our clients. These water based formulas are specifically designed to be hypo-allergenic, gentle and easy to remove.

How Far in Advance Do We Have to Book?

Holidays & summer dates are always busy. You should contact FUNifaces the minute you have your date, time and venue nailed down. A client that returns their contract and deposit first gets priority.

Due to the fact that children's immune systems aren't developed at this young age, FUNifaces recommends not having  face paint or airbrush paint applied to children unless they are over 4 years.

What Steps Do I Take to Secure FUNifaces  Services for My Event? 

Face paint is formulated for easy removal with liquid soap.  Some darker colors may  linger, due to the high pigmentation. If this happens, use a washcloth with soap and coconut oil.   Airbrush paints can be removed with coconut oil or makeup remover. FUNifaces makes every effort, using quality products, to provide those that remove easily.

FUNifaces only uses natural henna, provided from reputable distributors.  Henna is made from a plant.  The henna powder is then mixed with essential oils, lemon juice, and a bit of sugar to form the paste used to make henna designs.   

We Absolutely do not use  Black henna. Black henna is made from adding dangerous chemicals to achieve the dark color. This causes scarring of the skin.

FUNifaces henna matures to a dark brownish red over a period of 24-48 hours, and with proper care, will last 2-3 weeks.
