We have hired Manja several times to provide face painting services at our daughter's birthday parties and she was the hit of the party each and every time! She is incredibly talented! The children would all gather around and were so excited to see the magical transformations take place! Whether a full face painting or something smaller on the check , arm, or leg in the end each child looked like a unique masterpiece.
Manja is always prompt and on time and very professional. We were very satisfied with Manja's services and would highly recommend her for children's birthday parties or any other special event!
We have utilized Manja and her talented and amazing team for two consecutive years for our spring carnival fund raiser. Not only has Manja and her team been the most professional and gifted artisans we've ever met, but they've been generous as well! Working with a non profit like ours is not always the easiest but with Manja's help and generousity we've made each of our carnivals a bigger success than the last. Happy shining faces, ecstatic parents, wonderful artwork and camraderie. We will always always ALWAYS use Manja and Shining Faces for any and all of our face painting needs.
Shining Faces brought shining light and joy to over 120 kids and every single parent was more than satisfied with their work.
This team was amazing! They were creative with each design, no two being alike and each of them had they're own style and personality. They really added to the event, no, they were the event! People waited patiently for their one of a kind design to be revealed to them and they were all very impressed! I can't wait to be painted by them again. I've never experienced face painting like that before, I felt transformed into a work of art! Well done!!!
Response from Shining Faces:
We love parties! Thank you for inviting us to yours. It was so much fun being given the freedom to "surprise" each one of you with individual face art (and body) art :) Thank you for allowing the time to really taylor each design to each person and the time it takes to really jazz them up with embellishments. A little BLING can go a long way, baby!!
I found Mrs.Warner and her team to be prompt, professional and courteous. They came well prepared and cleaned up when they were done. I would certainly hire them again for future events.
Response from Shining Faces:
The event coordinator requested that we strictly limit our designs to 5 "cheek art" choices - no more. We did what the client asked, but boy was it difficult for our team of artists to stick to those 5 simple little designs all afternoon when those wonderful kids would come through and plead, "Can you do anything else, pleeeeze?" and the parents would look at us with those eyes that said, "How can you refuse such an angel as this?" I have to say, that was one of my more challenging gigs ever, having to restrict myself and my team from giving the kids what they wanted and from exercising our creativity as we are normally accustomed.
Other than that, we were thrilled to be part of this amazing event! Snakes, lizards, turtles, and other creepy crawlies... OH MY!

Manja Warner, owner and lead painter of Shining Faces has been transforming children's lives for almost 30 years. She has 17 years experience working in Early Childhood Education and 12 years Face Painting experience.
Manja is passionate about face painting and sees it as a way to make a positive difference in people's lives, first by the stroke of her brush as she artfully transforms each person on an individual basis and secondly, by supporting causes that help children and families in need, both locally and abroad.
Manja has had professional training and has trained each of her team members in the art and professionalism of face painting. She is very strict in setting standards for her business in the art form, hygiene, and interaction with clientele.
Shining Faces uses only products which are FDA approved for use on the skin and around eyes. From the paint (make-up) to the glitter to the glue used for embellishments - it is all specifically designed for use on human skin.
NOTE from Manja: Whatever the age, whatever the occasion ~ people LOVE face painting! People love being transformed. It can be a very personal and individual matter to have yourself be transformed and to see yourself in a new way. I do not take that lightly. I cannot express the joy and awe I see when people look at themselves in the mirror after being painted. It is priceless! I consider it an honor to be in a position to have such an impact on people (the paint washes off, but the memory lasts long afterwards) through my paintbrush and with the proceeds I earn from doing it. Thank you for considering inviting us to your special event!
