Face Painting Fairies



We only use the highest quality professional facepaints which are safe, non-toxic, hypo-allergenic, EU & FDA approved. They are sourced from companies such as Snazaroo who are an established facepaint and body glitter supplier. The paints are water-based and will wash off with gentle soap & water. We use poly-glitter responsibly, which is manufactured specially for safe use on the face & body.


Although we adore children, we are concentrating only on the child sitting in front of us having their face painted. We are busy facepainting, not supervising. Adults must be present and children will remain the responsibility of the parent, guardian, event host or organiser.

Fully Disclosed

We also have an Enhanced Disclosure Certificate to work with children, which is vital for the protection of children everywhere. So you can be quite sure your children are safe in our hands.

Health & Hygiene

We work to a very high standard of safe and hygienic practice. Water, sponges, brushes and paints are kept extremely clean, even our own hands are cleaned in between each child. Little faces may need to be cleaned first with a hypo-allergenic safe wipe to ensure a good start.

When it’s better not to paint

We do not paint over cuts or grazes or acne. We don’t paint a child who appears to have psoriasis or eczema on the face, as washing off the paint with soap and water at the end of the day could aggravate it. If the skin is clear on the hands or arms, we may paint those areas instead, for their own safety & comfort. We don't paint children who are feeling unwell, or are reluctant, for obvious reasons.


We are not responsible any allergies which may occur as a result of facepainting. The permission to paint is always the responsibility of the parent/guardian or party host. We usually try to do a small patch test on each child before applying colour to the face. However, an allergy may take it's own time to present, so this may not always reveal a problem in time. We will remove facepaint quickly & efficiently if requested to do so.
We are fully covered with Public Liability Insurance of £5million. We can provide exellent references on request.
