Ruby Red Face Painting Tips


Ruby Red face paints are a professional brand of face and body paints made in the USA. Ruby Red face paints are specifically formulated to be gentle on the skin and provide a safe face painting experience. Ruby red face paints are vegan and paraben free, making them a great choice for those with sensitive skin. These vegan face paints feel soft on the skin and provide a solid coverage when applied properly. Ruby Red face paints might need to be set with a translucent setting powder for a more lasting experience since they tend to never dry completely on the skin. Ruby Red face paints are the first line of neon/UV reactive face paints made from cosmetic grade ingredients!


In order to activate Ruby Red face paints, use a damped face painting sponge or face painting brush. First, get your sponge or brush slightly wet, make sure to remove any excess water before activating the face paint. Then, rub the brush or sponge against the face paint cake in order to activate the paint. Make sure to keep rubbing back and forward until the paint has a creamy consistency. If you are using a face painting brush for line work you can also go for a more ink like consistency. If you have too much water on the cake keep rubbing the sponge or brush in order to work that water into the paint and get the right consistency. Keep in mind that Ruby Red face paints are better suited for base work since their creamy consistency is not ideal for line work. Their metallic face painting colors require for you to work with a more creamy like consistency and might need more than one coat to get full opacity.


Once you have your preferred applicator loaded with face paint, then apply it to the skin. If you are using a sponge make sure to apply the face paint using a patting motion rather than swiping your sponge. Patting gently and consistently gives you a much smoother and opaque base than swiping your sponge. We recommend to use face painting sponges when applying a base coat.

When working with brushes simply lay the face painting brush against the skin and move in the desired direction. Make sure to keep a steady firm hand to have good control over your brush.


Ruby Red face paints can be removed easily with just soap and water. You can use a soft sponge or cloth to aid in the removal process. Always start by coating the skin with a thin layer of soap. Once you have worked the soap into the face paint, then proceed to rinse. You might need to repeat this process a few times. Always make sure to be gentle, excessive rubbing of your skin can cause irritation. Also, we suggest not to use scented baby wipes since the perfume can cause allergic reactions. If any stains are left on the skin, consider using lotion. You might need to let the lotion set in for a few minutes before wiping it off. In the rare case in which a stain is still visible after this process, please wait for 24 hours before attempting to wash off the area again. Normal sweating and oil production from your skin will aid in the removal process, as well as rubbing against your sheets while you sleep.

All face paints can stain since it depends mostly on your skin type. If you are concerned, always try a small patch of the color on the area to be painted and test for stains 30 minutes after. If the color does leave a stain, you might want to consider using a different color if that concerns you.

To remove the paint off your face painting brushes and sponges, we recommend using a brush soap like the Pink Soap by Mona Liza. These soaps are designed to remove oils and pigments off your tools and will do a much better job than regular hand soap. Once your tools have been washed off and throughly rinsed to remove all traces of soap, let them dry out completely before storing them.


Like with all cosmetic products, it is always best to keep Ruby Red face paints away from a direct light source and in a cool and dry environment. Excessive heat can make your face paints really soft, and excessive light can fade the colors on the outer layers of your cake. An excess of humidity can cause mold to grow and spoil your face paints.

Before putting your face paints away after you used them, make sure to wipe the top clean using a clean sponge (do not use baby wipes since they will leave a fuzzy layer on your cakes), let them dry out with the lids open and then proceed to put the lids back on and store in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight. You can use laptop cases to keep light away from your cakes.
