For the best success at your event, a professional face painter is a must. It is a very common mistake to purchase acrylic paints and craft glitter at the local store and start applying these products to the delicate and precious skin of children and adults alike. This has been witnessed first hand by the artists at JuJubilee’s. There are even “How To” websites that recommend the use of these products!

JuJubilee’s uses only products specially designed and manufactured for the use on skin and faces. See “What type of paints and glitters do you use?” below. This ensures great results and reduces the likelihood of any resulting skin irritations.

There is also a lot involved in face painting: Keeping track of who is next in line; providing lots of options for your guests; having comfortable stools; having good quality paints that won’t crack, fade or smear; using the correct tools such as soft but firm brushes as well as the right sponges; knowing how to properly clean one’s hands, brushes and sponges in order to maintain cleanliness and good hygiene; and of course, the ability to provide exciting face and body art in a quick manner.

Our artists are friendly, respectful, fun, and very professional. They are committed to making your event a big success. Planning an event is stressful enough; by using a professional face painting service, you can rest at ease!

Our high quality paints and makeup will not irritate the skin or stain clothing. The colors are always vividly rich and long lasting. We use only non-toxic water-based professional grade cakes, creams and liquids specifically designed for the use on skin.

We strictly use only non-metallic, .008 size hex-cut polyester glitters in our face painting and glitter tattoo designs. This is NOT the same type of glitter that can be purchased at a craft store. It is a professional quality glitter that is specifically made for makeup application and will not damage the delicate tissues of the eye should accidental contact occur.

No. Our products are manufactured for this purpose and many are used in theater productions where actors perspire much. They need makeup that will not melt or run under the bright lights. That is why we use these brands.

Each artist is equipped with a hand-held fan to assist in the already quick drying process of these paints. When electricity is available, our booth is equipped with a small shop fan for good air circulation. Rest assured that when painted by JuJubilee’s, you will enjoy your painted creation for several hours!

For those especially hot and humid days, we offer a barrier or sealant to further protect the paint, if desired. These are often used at athletic, outdoor or summer events. Additionally, we offer alcohol activated paints specifically used as water-proof BODY paint for fun tattoo-like creations that can last for days with good care.

We offer a large selection of brightly colored glitter BODY tattoos. These are applied to the skin using cosmetic adhesive and cosmetic glitter. These are extremely popular and if looked after carefully, can last up to 5 days. They are waterproof and are safe in the bath, shower, sea or pool. These are NOT suitable for use on the face or on children under 3 years old.

Our glitters are cosmetic grade specially cut to be safe for the use on delicate skin. They will not damage the soft tissues of the eyes should accidental contact occur.

We also offer alcohol activated paints specifically used as water-proof BODY paint for fun tattoo-like creations that can last for a couple of days with good care.

Our skilled artists can complete a detailed design in 3 to 6 minutes. On average, each artist can paint 6 to 8 full faces an hour; 15 if we reduce the detail. The type of design greatly impacts the rate of speed. This is why our rates are broken down according to the expected number of guests and the design options given. Our use of professional grade products and high end brushes aide in the speed of our work. We will book the appropriate number of painters for each event in order to ensure every guest has the opportunity to get in on the fun!

There are many children who will shy away from having their face painted. We have a lot of options for them beginning with simply painting a design on their hand, arm or even leg. We’ve even been known for painting feet!

We offer a wide selection of brightly colored glitter tattoos. These are extremely popular and if looked after carefully and can last up to 5 days.

Unless you have a glitter tattoo or water-proofed paint, it is recommended that the maximum length of time to wear the design is 6 hours. Leaving the design on overnight, especially on the face, is strongly discouraged. Similar to cosmetic makeup, face & body paints will clog your pores if left on for extended periods of time. They may also temporarily stain your skin.

Our face and body paints have similar components found in cosmetic makeup. Likewise, all of our paints and glitters can be easily removed with a mild soap and water or quality baby wipes. It is recommended that you remove the excess first with a damp towel, baby or cosmetic wipe and then wash off the remaining residue.

You should not have to scrub as the paint comes off very easily with a gentle wash. If the design has been worn over the recommended time frame (6 hours) or was not removed before going to bed, some normal temporary discoloration may occur. (Especially from the red and purple hues). DO NOT use any product that is not specifically made for cleansing human skin.

No. Any accidental marks on clothing should come out with a wash in biological washing detergent. It is recommended that washing should not be delayed. As with extended wear on the skin, a residual discoloring could occur. A soak in Biotex or a similar detergent will normally remove stubborn marks.
