Hi! I'm Brie, with over one decade experience making temporary tattoos and makeup, painting and performing at parties and events, I offer fun, vibrant sparkling face painting for all ages and glitter tattoos that are guaranteed to WOW you, along with Henna as an alternative. As an add-on I’m a musician, I offer a time of music and singing for children and adults to interactively celebrate. A couple of my favorite songs to play are “Put Your Records On” and “At Last I See the Light”.
When it comes to materials, I don't skimp! I have it all: bling, metallics, neons, glitter, stencils and a wide variety of colors. My makeup is top of the line, FDA approved, hypoallergenic, latex free.
What a great experience we had! I paint u with Brie was wonderful! She was prompt patient and oh, so sweet with a party for our 5 yr old twins and all their friends! Even when it started raining! Please check her out and invite her to your party!!
Response from IPaintU with Brie:
Thank You sweet Rhonda! It was a pleasure working with you, Emilia and I are already looking forward to next time. Blessings to you!
Amazing work and very fast, all the kid looked great. She is a must have every year!!! 10 Stars Brie you ROCK!
The children loved her and painted over 40 children during my birthday party. Most of all they loved the art work. I’ll definitely hire her again and refer her to my friends.
There are no words to describe how incredible IpaintU with Brie is. Everyone said nothing but great things about how great her face painting and henna tattoos came out. Don’t look any further!!! You will not regret going with Brie. She was on time and made sure that the kids that wanted to get their facepainted or henna got done and she even made sure some of the adults got their henna tattoos. She was so positive and friendly and the kids loved her. I will definitely be using IpaintU with Brie again.
Our experience was absolutely fantastic!!! She was on time and very professional. Her work is awsome and attentive to what the kids ask for. We would absolutely recommend her and definitely hiring her again.
Response from IPaintU with Brie:
What a lovely party that was!
Thank You, Amelia, for being such a wonderful host.
I first met brei at the Helotes Market (We are food vendors there) & she had a long line of kids waiting so I had to take my son & see what she was all about. Not only does she paint well her interaction with the kids is what really sold me on her (loved her quirky look...had a really cool wig on) & made me think I really have to book her for my kids party in the near future. So I did book her& happy I did I told her the theme& she actually dressed for the occasion, dang to the kids,asked them fun questions & on top of the face painting did glitter tattoos. Highly recommend her...some of the adults ended up even getting painted& glitter tattoos as well. It's a totally experience not just face paint. Customer service& a positive attitude is everything.
Response from IPaintU with Brie:
The Polar express party was a blast!
Thank you so much for the kind words.
Blessings to you!
Brie is awesome not only in her face painting but in her overall disposition. Everyone loved her. Even the adults were getting their faces painted.
I am blown away by Bries talent!! She has an extremely unique vision followed by a flawless delivery!! I posted my pictures of her work and I got SO many messages asking how did my face painting and when she had availablilty! Not only does she have amazing talent she's an amazing person! She has incredible patience and gives easy to follow directions when delivering her artwork. I look forward to having her at my event again in the very near future!!
I have had several experiences with Brie, and each time she surprises me with her energy, craft, and overall passion for what she does. She works quickly and expertly, be it with face painting, henna, glitter tattoos, or any of her many other talents. Brie works hard to set herself apart from other artists while stressing the importance of quality in her artwork and her interactions with people. She is bright, energetic, and amazing with all ages.
Brie was absolutely money well spent! She was so great with our kids (even painted a few adults for fun!) She was professional, on time & such a pleasure to work with!
We booked Brie for our daughter and son's birthday party. Aside from being an amazing artist, she is the SWEETEST too! She is super talented and kept the kids entertained while they got their faces painted or got temporary glitter tattoos. We have recommended all of our family and friends to book her for their birthday parties as well!
We hired IPaintU with Brie this past weekend for my daughter's first birthday and were very glad we did. Brie was prompt, professional, great with the kids, and very talented. Upon arrival, she walked in with a sweet birthday greeting for my daughter, set up quickly, and was painting beautiful pictures on faces within minutes. She spent around 5 minutes with each kid, which was plenty of time to create a great design while still keeping the child's attention. We had kids from 7 months to 10 years of age, and even some adults who all loved their design. There were a lot of superheroes, a skull, some Dallas Cowboys themed designs, and even a Cleveland Indians logo she did on the spot. As I said, we were very happy with her and would not hesitate to recommend her for any other events.

What to Expect
Vibrant colors, sharp linework, sparkles and happy kids.
I am a logistically full-functional Face Painter. You could set me up in a desert and I would have everything I needed (except for faces to paint). LOL
You can expect me to make special preparations for your event. You can expect me to dress up in a fun-fantasy look (especially if requested).
My name is Briana Hopkins (Brie). When I was five years old I lived in South Africa. There I had my face Painted for the very first time ever. I believed that the lady used magic and pixie dust to paint my face. It was around that same time that my parents asked me a common question,
"what do you want to be when you grow up?" That was easy, I promptly answered,
"A mermaid, of course!"
Somewhat dissapointed my father said,
"you can't actually be a mermaid, what else would you want to be ?"
"Well then, a boy! Why? Cause they can do whatever they want." I answered.
Again, dissapointed but somewhat humored I was asked for a third option,
"Easy, a bird! As a matter a fact that would make me happiest."
Today, I know what kind of answer they were looking for but back then my imagination ran wild. Anything seems possible when you are a child. It is my absolute duty and pleasure to bring face painting to children. They deserve to shine bright like the diamonds they are, and I want to help them feel that.
I have a associates in Fine Arts from Northwest Vista College and I am working fulltime on my BA in the Visual Arts from UTSA (2018). I have been painting realism for 11 years. Finally, I have the chance to bring my skill and years of experience to the individual in an undeniably enjoyable way through face painting, glitter tattoos and henna tattoos.
