Extraordinary Face Painting
at Your Extraordinary Event

If your hosting an event, a party or a fundraiser in the near future then your guests will almost certainly expect to see face painting as an activity to partake in. With well over 200,000 faces painted in 25 Years, we know this industry inside out and what it takes to make your event extraordinary!

With a team of talented staff and freelance face painters we are able to attend events in Hampshire, Dorset, Wiltshire, Berkshire, West Sussex and Surrey....and better still is we have a sliding and rising price scale that will fit in with even the smallest (or largest) of budgets! From the industry's top-class Internationally recognised face painters right down to those who are newly qualified in the industry, we are able to provide the perfect package for you with regard to skill, quality, speed and most importantly price.

Not only is their Face Painting service a big hit for children, in recent years they have seen a huge increase in painting adults at events such as nightclub promotions, balls, dinner dances, wedding receptions and at hen parties. Eye enhancements are all the rage now, as the makeup applications are more stylised and more fitting towards teenagers and adults.
