SO VERY SWEET AND FUNNY OFF THE BAT. SHE REALLY PUTS YOU AT EASE AND IF YOU DON'T REALLY KNOW WHAT COLORS YOU'D LIKE ON YOUR FACE, SHE ASKS ABOUT YOUR DRESS AND COLORS OF THE WEDDING, TELLS YOU WHETHER THOSE KIND OF COLORS WOULD LOOK GREAT OR NOT AND SUGGESTS SOMETHING BETTER THAT WILL BLOW YOUR MIND AWAY! I'VE USED HER FOR 2 MORE EVENTS SINCE THEN BECAUSE SHE IS THAT GOOD. AS A MATTER OF FACT MY MOH WHO IS ONE THAT NO ONE TOUCHES HER FACE BECAUSE SHE DOES HER OWN MAKEUP WHICH IS PRETTY ENOUGH, ASKED ::) STEPHANIE COULD DO HER MAKEUP AS WELL BECAUSE SHE WAS BLOWN AWAY WITH MINE AND STEPHANIE EVEN GAVE HER BETTER TIPS TO APPLYING HER OWN MAKEUP IN THE FUTURE. STEPHANIE TRULY IS THE BEST, DON'T MISS OUT ON HER, SHE BOOKS UP QUICK BECAUSE OF HER AWESOME TANNING JOBS THAT SHE DOES AS WELL. THANKS SO MUCH STEPHANIE, I ALREADY MISS YOU AND I SERIOUSLY CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOU ON THE 8TH OR 9TH OF SEPTEMBER FOR TANNING AND THE 10TH OF SEPTEMBER FOR MY MAKEUP!

Shannon was great! My company hired her for a community Halloween event for children and we were blown away by her talent. She was able to paint every kid's face that wanted a face painting and did an outstanding job! I have not seen better face painting.

Trina is awesome! She did a great job with glitter tattoos and face painting at my daughter's birthday party. She was so sweet and patient with all the kids! Trina took the time to give each child a special, unique design that fit their personality. She is worth every penny. I highly recommend Paintn' Glitter!

Gabby was everything I wanted and more. She even relayed to us that she's never met anyone with as much interest in the art of face painting as my son and left him one of her color palettes and a brush. So very sweet, talented and professional. I highly recommend Gabbys Face Painting!

I can not say enough about how wonderful Chandra was not only on my wedding day but through the whole process. I was in desperate need of a makeup artist for my fast approaching wedding and a friend of mine referred me to Chandra. I reached out to her and she immediately responded back with what her bridal package includes and the pricing for myself and for my bridesmaids. All i wanted was a great makeup artist that would do airbrush and after seeing her list of credentials and her work on Facebook I could tell she does amazing work! Chandra was so helpful and accommodating through the whole process especially since it was hard for me to see her for our trial run since I live in the Bay area currently and she is in San Diego where my wedding was also being held. For various reasons we weren't able to meet for the trial run and I put my faith in her hands and met her in person for the first time the morning of my wedding and all i can say is I didn't regret not one thing. She did a fabulous job and I loved my very first airbrushing experience, all my bridesmaids were so very happy with how their airbrush makeup turned out as well and it definitely lasted all night long and I'm prone to get very oily in my T-zone! One last thing I wanted to mention that I loved about my experience was even though we never met until my wedding day, she treated me like a best friend from the get go with checking in on my planning, making sure I was staying calm through the process and not stressing and asking if there was anything she could do to help me!! What makeup artist who you've never met before does that and asks if you need help wedding planning!? Well I told her I was still in need of a hair stylist after the one I booked flaked on me and she referred me to Victoriaghairdesign who is a God with hair by the way lol. Chandra was a life saver for my wedding and is a person I would definitely trust any of my friend's weddings with.

Ms. Kristin and her assistant Ella executed a wonderful program for children from small to the teenager at our church's capital campaign kickoff held on Cinco de Mayo 5/5/18. The small children loved the face painting and sparkles that Kristin applied. Even I, something more than a teenager, loved my Wonder Woman look. After dinner, Kristin held 19 children, again a wide variety of ages, in the palm of her hand while they explored canvas art work...blending colors, learning to apply paint and creating magical roses for the hair. It was an amazing evening, and each budding artist left with a painting of Frida Kahlo. It was a night to remember. Thank you Kristin and Ella!

    About

    I try to get as much information about what inspired the child and what would excite them when they see their magical new Perfect Canvas Face. I love to use lots of bling and glitter. I also do glitter tattoos that are amazing for pool parties. But when I think sets me apart most, is I love my work and I think it shows in every brush stroke of love ;)
