I was looking for something exciting for my daughter's 5th birthday party and figures face painting would be a hit. Well all the kids loved their designs. Especially the birthday girl. She never wanted to wash her face. Kristen was great to work with, easy to communicate with and she was able to work witrh our schedule in such a short notice. Can't wait for our next party to hire her again.
Fancy Faces face painting was a wonderful addition to our son's 8th birthday party! Our son wanted a "dragon" themed party and Fancy Faces came prepared with some extra dragon options for the kids to choose from. Every kid was able to find something they wanted from her large collection of choices. They all enjoyed taking a turn in her chair and each painting was artistic and well done! We would highly recommend Fancy Faces!!
As part of our Labor Day weekend activities, we booked Fancy Faces, and received more than had imagined. Kristen possesses not only unique artistic capabilities, she also manages the flood of children very calmly and efficiently, while devoting time and focusing on each and every child as if they are the only ones there. All the smiles and merriment lasted longer than the make up and we are looking forward to next season.....
I hired fancy faces for my daughter's 6th birthday princess party and the kids loved it and do did the adults. Kristen is very talented and quick but thorough. She did an amazing job. I would definitely recommend fancy faces.
We had Kristen come for my sons 3rd birthday party. The theme was Super Why. She was aware of all the characters and transformed my son into Super Why. He still talks about the face painter and wants her to come back! The kids at the party all enjoyed having their faces painted as well as my son's two grandfathers. Kristen was professional, on time and did a fantastic job. We will definately have her back.

What to Expect
The artist(s) arrives 15-30 minutes in advance to set up. The set up includes a table and 2 chairs per artist, a poster display, and face painting and glitter tattoo supplies. Designs include a wide variety of cheek designs, full face designs, and stencil tattoos.
Then the fun begins. Children choose a design from the poster or notebook, the artist checks on color choices, then transforms the child's face or hand into their wish come true. When the child sees their reflection in the mirror, their face lights up with wonder. The transformation takes about 3-5 minutes per child. Other children delight in watching the transformation take place. The adults exclaim at the finished product and take pictures. After all the children have gone, often the adults start requesting face paint designs or glitter tattoos.
The face painting artist keeps track of how many have been done or how much time has gone by. When the agreed on number or time has been reached, the artist connects with the client about the balance due, then packs up. Wonderful memories have been created.
Kristen's face painting has really taken off in the past 6 years. What started out as a hobby has bloomed into a thriving business. She is in increasing demand as a face painter in the Rochester area. Many clients have commented that it's the best face painting they have ever seen. She is constantly working to improve her skills and create new designs for her customers.
Additional Booking Notes
Below are the guidelines I endeavor to follow while body painting during the pandemic.
1. Only paint those who show no symptoms to keep everyone else safe.
2. Sanitize my hands and the chair they will be sitting on between every person.
3. Wear my face mask and ask the person I am painting to wear theirs as well to keep us all protected.
4. Sanitize my kit before any event and at the end, including all makeup and tools.
5. Ask the customers to use a fresh wipe to clean their skin and to sanitize their hands before getting into the chair. ( I will provide the wipes and hand sanitizer.)
6. Use clean fresh water with each client to activate the face paint.
7. Use one face sponge per client, setting them aside to be sanitized at home.
8. Sanitize all brushes using a 3 step process, including a 60% or more alcohol solution and air drying before using for another customer.
9. Follow safe distance rules with those not getting painted by establishing a 6-foot clear zone around the face painting station.
10. When possible, I will use a number system to call the next person to be painted rather than having them wait in line.
11. If I am unable to work due to showing symptoms of illness, I will provide a substitute to take my place or give a refund.
