Why use a professional face painter?
For best results only use professionally qualified facepainters. A good face painter will only use specialised, water-based, hypoallergenic paints. These ensure top quality results and do not irritate the skin. Also, for your peace of mind, Face-FX have full public liability insurance and are CRB checked.
How do I remove face paint when I get home?
When removing facepaint, first use baby wipes to remove the bulk of the make-up, followed by mild soap and water.
