The great advantage of Mehron Intense powders is that they are durable in hot, humid weather, because they ride lightly on the skin and don't tend to smear like traditional face paints. Personally, I prefer the way they feel on the skin to face paint, especially in hot weather, so I hope you'll give them a try this summer at your parties.
One other tip for using Mehron Powders is to remember that, because they are dry, you will need to load your brush well to paint over them. Happy painting!
