Face Painting

As with full face painting, you still follow standard protocol:

– Check if the child has any rashes, open cuts, pimples (not many of these in a child, but just in case), soreness or redness of the skin. Inform parents of the child if you find any of these and do not do any face (not even cheek) paintings on them. If you see rashes in other parts of the body aside from the face and neck area, tell parents to have their child be checked for any possible allergies.

– Use water-based, FDA-approved paints. Never use acrylic or craft paints, as these are usually used on paper, wood and cloths and not really advised for skin use. Acrylics are known to have side effects such as rashes and skin allergies so it’s best to use just face paints that are approved for cosmetic use.

– Have cleaning materials with you (baby wipes, hand sanitizer, towels to drape over the child to eliminate unnecessary paint droplets, soap and water).

– You would need cleaning materials for your brushes and sponges as well, to make cleaning easier and for fast usage.

You can choose to apply (or not apply) base paint, since you are only going to do cheek art. (It is recommended to put a skin-tone color on the whole face though, for easier cleaning.)

You can do any design on the cheek. You can doodle curls and shapes as many as you want, as much as you want. Or you can try these tried-and-tested-but-simple designs for the little ones:

– Hearts.

– Spider webs.

– Flowers.

– Stars.

– A spider.

– Scars. (A perfect complement for a Halloween costume.)

– Mustache and/or beard. (If a little boy wants to be a pirate.)

– A starfish.

– Butterflies.

– Dolphins.

– Ladybugs.

– A smiley face.

– A coffee cup, complete with steam on top.

– Snake.

– Shark.
