  2. Grease based face paints are very hard to remove from clothing.

  6. If it is an expensive piece of clothing you can try taking it to the dry cleaner for advice or help.

We get many people asking us: can face paint go on lips? The answer is, it depends. Most face paint colors can be used on lips without an issue, but some have a warning on their label that says that the FDA recommends to keep such colors away from the lips. This is usually the case for some blue and green pigments. Some people might experience some numbness when painted on the lips with black face paint although it is very uncommon, and it goes away after a few minutes if you wash the paint off right away.

Keeping that in mind, like any makeup product, or pretty much any product out there, there is always a small chance of an allergic reaction if someone is allergic to any of the ingredients use or if there is any cross contamination. 

Can Face Paint Make You Sick?

A few tips to keep you from getting sick after being face painted:

  • Make sure you know what ingredients are in the paints and if you are allergic to any of them don't get painted.
  • Make sure to always use professional cosmetic grade face paints to reduce the chances of an allergic reaction.
  • Always check the sanitary conditions of the face paint set up, a messy looking kit can be a sign of unsanitary conditions and you should avoid it.
  • Don't get painted over open wounds.
  • If you are already sick avoid getting painted so that not to pass your sickness on to others.
  • When ashing the paint off, always be gentle and use products designed to be applied to the face; most of the time a gentle soap and water will do.
  • If you have sunscreen on, remove it before getting painted.

Can Face Paint Cause an Allergic Reaction?

Just as we mentioned before, anything can cause an allergic reaction, but if you use the proper materials and technique, face paint is unlikely to cause an allergic reaction. 

Can Face Paint Cause an Allergic Reaction?

Just make sure to follow some important tips and you should be fine:

  1. Know what you are allergic to and ask the painted if the face paints contain any of those potential allergens.
  2. Do not get painted over open wounds.
  3. Do not use scented baby wipes to clean your face.
  4. Make sure that the makeup kit is clean.
  5. Do not use cheap face products, always use professional cosmetic grade products.
  6. Be gentle when washing the face paint off your skin.

Are Face Paints Safe?

Yes, face paints are safe, so long you use the right kind of product and technique. You should always use face paints that are cosmetic grade and FDA compliant, preferably bought from professional face paint stores since they have the knowledge and expertise to select products that have been properly tested and certified, unlike big box stores and costume stores.

Are Face Paints Safe?

If you are getting painted by someone else, always make sure to hire a professional face painter that has been properly trained, used the right products and knows how to apply the face paint safely and in sanitary conditions.

A few things to keep in mind to have a safe face painting experience:

  1. Always use FDA compliant cosmetic grade professional face paints.
  2. Buy your face paints from trusted sources like professional face paint stores (www.JestPaint.com).
  3. Do not apply face paint over open wounds.
  4. Always make sure the face paint kit is clean.
  5. Know what you are allergic to and avoid getting painted if the paints have any of the potential allergens as an ingredient.
  6. Always hire professionals to do the job, amateur painters might use the wrong product (markers, acrylics, tempera) or the wrong techniques.

Is Face Paint Acrylic?

Face Paints are not acrylics hence acrylics can not be used as face paints since they have some harsh ingredients that are not meant for the skin, and they also use pigments that are not approved by the FDA to be use don skin due to the fact that they can cause some permanent scars over skin. If you Google Acrylic Reactions on skin you will find hundreds of images of damaged skin due to acrylics being used as face paints.

Is Face Paint Acrylic?

If you ask any acrylic's manufacturer they will tell you that their product is not meant to be used on the skin. It might say "non toxic" which means that normal exposure to the product while doing what the product is meant to be used for won't cause any injuries. That does not mean that the product can or was designed to be used on skin.

Acrylics are not face paint

Please avoid using acrylics as face paint, regular water activated face paint is the right product for that, and it can actually be as cheaper or cheaper and much safer. For less than $15 you can get a full set of perfectly safe face paints that can paint over dozens of faces.

Is Face Paint Makeup?

The answer to this question is yes and no. Face Paint is a cosmetic product but unlike makeup it is not designed for prolonged wear. Some pigments for example are ok only if use every now and then but not on a daily basis. Since makeup is designed for every day use, you can use makeup as face paint, but we don't suggest using face paint as makeup every day. It is a lot more pigmented and not truly designed for every day use.

Is face paint makeup?

So long you follow the instructions on the label you will be fine and should have nothing to worry.

Is Face Paint Vegan?

Not all face paints are vegan, some might have carmine, lanolin, shellac or beeswax. You should read the ingredient's label carefully. Most professional face paint brands are indeed vegan and never tested on animals. 

Are Face Paints Vegan?

We highly suggest reading this blog post about Vegan face Paints as it has all of the information you need to know about vegan face paints, which brands are vegan and which ones are not, what ingredients to look for and more!

Is Face Paint Non-Toxic?

Good professional cosmetic grade and FDA compliant face paint is non toxic and can be used on the skin safely so long you follow the manufacturer's instructions.

Is Face Paint Non-Toxic?

Keep in mind that not all non toxic products are meant to be used as face paint, non toxic is not the same as safe to be used on skin. Markers can be non toxic, meaning you won't die of poisoning if you accidentally get some ink on your fingers, but that is not the same as saying that you can paint your entire face with markers. The non toxic label applies to normal expected use. No one expects markets to be used as face and body paint, for example.

Is Face Paint Water Proof?

Some face paints are water proof while others are not. There are mostly two kinds of water proof face paint: alcohol based and silicone based. Alcohol based are the most popular ones and  there is a large variety of brands to choose from.

Is Face Paint Waterpoof

Alcohol based face paints usually have caster oil as well to help make the product almost 100% water proof, and very water and sweat resistant.

You can read more about water proof face paints on this blog: Water Proof Face Paints.

Also, you can browse a large selection of water resistant face paints on our website.

Is Face Paint Water Based?

Although it is very common for people to say that face paints are water based in reality, water is just a small part of the product, most are paraffin wax based, glycerin based, talc based or Acacia Senegal gum based.

Is face paint water based?

The correct term would be water activated as most face paints are indeed water activated.

Liquid face paints also don't have that much water, but they do have more than the solid kind. Liquid face paint also have acrylates (a thick liquid substance not be confused with acrylics). 

You can browse a great collection of water activated face paints at JestPaint.com.

Is Face Painting Easy?

Face painting requires practice, although it is not rocket science, it certainly requires a lot of practice, training and investing in good products to become a professional at it. 

Is Face Painting Easy?

If all you want is to play at home with your kids, then you can learn how to face paint fairly easily although the results won't be stellar, just good enough to have a good time.

Can You Face Paint Over a Beard?

Yes! Face Painting over beards and doing glitter beards is the best! You can face paint over a beard using airbrush body paint and an airbrush compressor for faster results, or you can use regular face paint with a paint brush. Just make sure your face paint is really nice and thick and you will need to go over it a few times.

can you face paint beards

If you want to do a glitter beard then add some aloe vera gel to your glitter and spread it all over; just make sure to use cosmetic grade glitter.

What Face Paint Doesn't Crack?

Most professional brands of face paint won't crack if properly applied. What is most important is not to make the application too thick. The paint should be thin enough that it will move with the skin, but opaque enough that it won't look translucent. A little bit of practice usually helps.

You can always go for Glycerin Based face paints if you want a smoother look since that base is more flexible and usually does not crack.

What Face Paint Doesn't Crack?

On the image above you can see that the painted applied too much face paint making a thick layer of paint that cracked.

What Face Paint is Safe for Babies?

All professional brands of face paints are safe for babies if you follow the manufacturer's instructions. Although in some countries particular face paint organizations have set their own rules, truth is that the regulatory agencies have not set age limits on face paints. They do suggest to follow label instructions, so if the label says not to paint kids under a certain age, then we highly suggest that. Most importantly, use common sense. A baby that was just born, or a a baby that looks like has a sensitive skin or whose parents warn you about him/her having sensitive skin, allergies or other skin conditions, should not be painted in our opinion.

what brand of face paint is safe for babies

So, in summary, what you should do when asked what face paint is safe for babies is:

1 - Read the label of the face paint you are about to use and see if it mentions any age restrictions and for what reasons.

2 - Ask the parent or adult in charge if the baby has any skin conditions or any condition at all that should prevent him from getting painted.

3 - Make sure the baby wants to get painted. In our opinion, if a baby is crying and looks unhappy, then you should not paint him/her.

4 - If the baby is a new born we do not suggest for face paint to be applied, mostly if you have used those paints and brushes with people before as their immune system might still be developing and he/she could catch something from your brushes, sponges or used paints.

5 - Always ask about allergies.

6 - Be extremely sanitary when painting babies, here is a blog post you can read: Top 10 Safety and Hygiene Tips for Face Painting - The Ultimate Guide.

Can I Face Paint with Acrylics?

We often get asked if it is ok to face paint with acrylics and the only answer to that is: no. Here are the main reasons why you can't use acrylics to face paint:

  1. Acrylics are not meant to be used on the skin. If you call any acrylic manufacturer (we have done that) or Arts and Craft stores, they will tell you the same.
  2. Acrylics are made with pigments that are not approved to be used on skin, of which have been directly banned from any cosmetic application.
  3. The "non toxic" label only applies to the toxicity while using it according to the label. 
  4. Acrylic skin reactions happen often, but most painters won't see them because they only happen usually a few hours later when the kid is back home.
  5. An acrylic reaction can leave a chemical burn on the skin which can last a long time if the burn is deep enough.
  6. Acrylics were not designed for skin application, no test was done to see if they were safe for the skin and the ingredients used are not cosmetic grade.

Here is a picture of a reaction to acrylics being used as face paints

Is Face Paint Acrylic?

Can You Face Paint a Baby?

The question of if you can face paint a baby comes often since parents love to see their little ones turned into cute little critters, super heroes and princesses, and the answer to that question is: it depends. It depends on a few factors that we will go on and list below. So please, if you want to know if you can face paint a baby, read the the following list of important factors to keep in mind:

Can You Face Paint a Baby?

  1. Always make sure the baby wants to be face painted. If the baby is crying or looks unhappy, then you should not; after all, face paint is supposed to make kids happy.
  2. Ask the parents or legal guardian if the baby has any skin conditions, allergies or any other medical situation that you should be aware of.
  3. Read the label of your paints and see if the manufacturer advises against the use of face paint with kids below certain age and why.
  4. It is best if you can use brand new face paints and brushes so to prevent cross contamination that could cause the baby to get sick (babies have an immune system that is still developing).
  5. Follow your local regulations, if there are any in regards to this.
  6. Use common sense! If the baby looks like he/she was just born, then maybe this is not the best time for it.

Can You Face Paint with Water Colors?

If you want to know if you can face paint with water colors the real question would be: are water colors designed for the face? And the answer unfortunately is no. Watercolors are designed to be used on paper and other surfaces, but not on the skin. This is due to the fact that watercolors have pigments that are not allowed, some have been been banned, to be used on skin based on USA FDA regulations. Some of those pigments can be very harmful to the skin if left on for hours or if a lot of skin is exposed to it. Just because some people don't react to them it doesn't make them ok.

Can You Face Paint with Water Colors?

Also, remember that the "non toxic" label only applies when you are using the product as directed by the manufacturer. So, a little bit of water color pigment in your finger tips while you paint that you will then wash off in a matter of minutes is not the same as wearing a full face mask for eight hours straight.

What Face Paint does Kiss Use?

Many people write to us wondering what face paint does the legendary rock band Kiss uses; they want to replicate the look for Halloween, or even some bands that play Kiss' covers want to look like them.

Alex is an amazing artist that makes the craziest makeup tutorials and has a YouTube channel by the name MadeYewLook. Many people come to us asking us what face paint does MadeYewLook uses and the answer is: almost all of them!

What Face Paint does Joker Use?

The joker was a really big hit in 2019 and still now so a lot of people were wondering what face paint does the joker use. It is not a question with one answer since, like the makeup artists explained, she used different kinds of makeup products depending on the scene and what was needed. But, she was kind enough to share with everyone the list of products she used on her official Instagram page, and here is the list of brands, some of which are available at JestPaint.com:

  1. MAC Cosmetics
  2. Sian Rich London
  3. Kryolan Aqua Colors (available at JestPaint.com)

What Face Paint does Slipknot Use?

Although not many people come to us to ask what face paint does Slipknot uses, we do know that many fans and people wanting to look like them want to know the answer to this.

The answer is not simple as their looks keep changing and they use a lot of masks with some make and special fx products added. In general, if you want makeup that can last through long hours of sweating and moving, you have to go with grease makeup and or alcohol makeup

What face Paint do Clowns Use?

Clowns are very popular characters and many people wonder what face paints do clowns use, and the answer to that question is: it depends on the clown!

What face Paint do Clowns Use?

Some clowns use a lot of powder base makeup products, like StarBlennds, while others still use traditional style clown makeup, grease makeup, like Ben Nye. Some clowns like to use regular water activated face paints, mostly if they wear very little makeup since water activated face paints are not very sweat proof. I have heard of a few that airbrush their makeup and use alcohol based airbrush paints since they are very long lasting and have really good coverage.

What Face Paint does Disneyland Use?

We have been lucky enough to visit Disneyland and Disney World a few times and we have sen their artists at work! Many people wonder what face paint does Disneyland use and for the most part they use Kryolan Aquacolors and Wolfe FX face paints. We have seen an occasional container of another brand here and there (probably because they could not get what they needed from their regular brands sometimes), but for the most part that is what they use. 

What Face Paint does Disneyland Use?

With either brand you can achieve the same great looks those artists create at the parks. You will need to practice though, because face painting requires practice, dedication and talent.
