What is the best way to remove face paint?
It's make-up! The easiest way to get it all off is to apply a little bit of baby shampoo or facial soap directly to the painted design, rub gently with fingers until all the paint is mixed with the soap into a muddy-looking mess, then use a warm wet washcloth to remove the soap and make-up. There is no need to scrub hard!
In a pinch, wet ones or baby wipes also do a good job removing face paint.Some colors may leave a temporary shadow or light stain on some people's skin, especially those with very light or very dry skin. This is harmless and will fade in a few days.
About Glitter and Mica Temporary Tattoos
What are Glitter and Mica Tattoos?
Glitter and Mica Tattoos are a fairly new form of temporary
body art that is taking the world by storm! These temporary tattoos are custom applied by hand, they are not a sticker. The
appearance of the tattoo is a little like an airbrush tattoo, but much more
glittery and lasts longer! First the artist applies an adhesive stencil, then a
cosmetic adhesive. Cosmetic grade glitter is then applied, in whatever blend of
colors you choose, then the stencil is removed and you have a beautiful sparkly
tattoo that is waterproof and will last 3-5 days! Freehand designs are "painted" with a cosmetic adhesive, then the glitter is applied. For a Mica Tattoo, instead of
the glitter the artist applies cosmetic mica powder (like mineral makeup, but
intensely pigmented) for a matte or slightly shimmery tattoo which looks very
realistic, is waterproof, and lasts 4-7 days!
Can you put a Glitter Tattoo on my face?
We do not apply glitter or mica tattoos to the face. These are for body art only. The skin of the face is more delicate, we don’t want you to have to scrub your face or use rubbing alcohol to remove the tattoo! Glitter Tats look great on lower or upper arms, necks, shoulders, backs, ankles, and more. We are a family-friendly business and do not apply glitter tattoos (or do body painting) on parts of the body covered by a regular swimsuit.
How do I make my Glitter (or Mica) Tattoo last longer?
Glitter Tattoos are waterproof. You may swim, shower, and bathe as usual. However try to avoid rubbing or scratching the tattoo when it is wet, as it is glued to the top layer of your skin, which softens when wet, so if you rub hard the tattoo may come off. Oils and alcohols break down the tattoo adhesive, so avoid putting lotion or sunscreen over the tattoo. Drinking alcohol may also speed the breakdown of the tattoo adhesive, as the alcohol is excreted through the pores of your skin. We give out aftercare cards with all of this info when we apply glitter tattoos, so your event guests will have all this information.
How can I remove my Glitter Tattoo?To remove a Glitter or Mica Tattoo, dampen the tattoo with rubbing alcohol or baby oil, allow it to sit a moment and soften, then rub gently with a cotton ball or cotton pad. This process may need to be repeated several times before the tattoo is completely gone.

I am having a summer outdoor pool party, will the body paint come off in the water?
