Choosing a Face Painter

Setting up a face painting booth for your birthday party depends on your budget and the work you want your face painter to do. Not all professional face painters are created the same, so here are a few things to consider when choosing an expert to keep your little angels in attendance entertained:

The type of paint they use

Choose a face painter who makes use of FDA approved, cosmetic-grade paint that is safe for your kids. Paints that are not hypoallergenic can leave your child’s skin in a mess; therefore, avoid painters who make use of weird cheap store paints.

Level of sanitation

While there are no laws guiding the sanitation of face paint, a professional face painting artist will sanitize their paint brushes before every dip and have a different sponge for each kid. Therefore, check if your prospect has reliable materials, like makeup sanitizer and enough sponges, before hiring them.


Your face painters are going to work with kids and accidents have been known to occur, so a reliable face painter should possess insurance cover for different accidents.

Reviews and Background

Background checks give you insight into who you’re letting into your home; you don’t want a criminal around your kids now, do you? And on the heels of background checks is finding out how their previous customer rated them. Artists who don’t want to share their previous reviews cannot be trusted. Always find out their reputation first before securing their services.

Clean up

A professional face painter makes use of paint brands that are easier to remove once the child gets over the artwork. They should walk you through cleaning and paint removal procedure.


Lastly, there’s the matter of price. Consider getting a professional face painter who charges per hour rather than per face. Some excellent face painters will even reduce the cost time, e.g. $50 for the first hour and a reduction in price for further hours to make things affordable for you.
