Customer Questions about Face Painting Designs

Q: I want to paint faces for el dia de las muertas (The Day of the Dead). I've painted faces before but I've never been the purchaser of the paint. Can you suggest something?
A: We have a Day of the Dead Kit and video that goes with it. Even if you don't want that kit, the video shows you which colors you need and how to create it.

Q: I want to paint my face and neck blue, because I am going to be a Smurf for Halloween, but i do not like that greasy, glowy look of the facepaint you can get at the store. What would be a better looking choice, one that looks like makeup but blue instead of skin tone?
A: If you use a high quality face paint that is of cosmetic grade, you won't have a greasy look. Our face paints are all water based; just apply with a moist makeup sponge. You won't need much (one or two refill sizes will be plenty). Here is a link to the blue facepaints that we carry and you can determine which is the most Smurf-like.

Q: I am planning to be a character from the Simpson's for Halloween and intend to paint my face, ears, neck and hands yellow.
How much Aquacolor would I need to do such an application, and how do I do around the eyes?

A: Each 0.25 ounce (4 ml) Kryolan Aquacolor Face Paint Refill is good for about 15-50 applications, so a couple of those should be enough.

Please note: the US FDA recommends against using red, yellow, orange or purple facepaints near the eyes and or using blue, green or purple face paints near the lips to avoid possible staining issues.
