What is EDGE White face and body paints best for?
From our testing, EDGE White is nice for tear drops, line work and dots on top of darker colors but you will still see some bleed through as you continue stroking your brush over a darker color. EDGE Professional Face and Body Makeup was designed by Mehron to work as an amazing bleed resistant line work and layering face and body paint. Mehron claims that, unlike Paradise face paint, which is very easy to blend with other colors on the skin, EDGE has a blend resistant / water resistant feature, so that you can layer colors with out activating the colors below. They are perfect to use as line work paints with Paradise paint when you are looking for the crispest, boldest line work and super solid coverage, with a flawless edge. EDGE's water resistant characteristics also make it perfect for events where your model will need a long lasting, durable, smudge free face paint.Think dance clubs, sporting events, or summer time parties. If you are looking for a Vegan face paint, The EDGE line is Vegan / Cruelty / Talc / Paraben / Gluten / PEG / Petroleum Free. Mehron included the beneficial properties of Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, and Vitamin E to the EDGE face paint so that it feels great on the skin!
How should I apply and remove EDGE water resistant face paint?
Mehron's EDGE colors are easy to use. They are perfect for professional face painters and makeup artists, but are also perfect for new artists. EDGE face and body makeup can be applied with a wet make up brush or sponge. Moisten your face painting tool with water and load up the paint until you get a nice opaque consistency. Apply the paint to the face or body using smooth brush strokes or by patting your sponge until you get a bold opaque coverage. Though EDGE is water resistant, it is not water proof. The best way to remove EDGE is with a warm soapy sponge or cloth. Using soap first will help break down the paint before it gets spread around with water. You can also use a makeup remover to take off EDGE face paint. If any faint stains remain after washing off the face paint, apply a skin safe oil based product or lotion to the skin for a few hours and then wipe away any remaining residue with a tissue. All face paints have the potential to create an allergic reaction if a person has very sensitive skin or is allergic to one one or more of the base ingredients or pigments. You can always apply a patch test to the inner arm for 30 minutes to see if your client has any reaction at all before painting their face or body.
