Tips For Fierce Halloween Face Paint:

1) Always use FDA compliant water based makeup.

2) Always use cosmetic grade glitter—craft glitter has metal in it and can damage eyes.

3) Use your arm as a palette to make sure you have the right balance of water and makeup before applying it on the face—if it’s too wet, the makeup will run.

4) Use a good brush—as in, all the bristles are pointing politely in the same direction—to paint line-work.

5) If you’re overwhelmed, don’t fret. Face Art by Melissa makes house-calls!
