Our face painting/balloon artist was really great with the kids. She had a sweet demeanor and even came dressed as a character from Frozen. I thought you did a great job on the face painting. To be honest I didn't think the balloon animals were just ok. But I thought her face painting was really nice. The parents seem to like it as well. I recommend people hiring her. Her bid was much more expensive than the other bids *$100 more* But I figured because she can do balloons and paint faces she would be worth it. & I liked the professional website and payment option. In hindsight I probably would've asked to get no balloon animals and paid a little less. Otherwise, I think she did a great great job. I gave a 5 for professionalism, demeanor and face painting.

Ani was awesome! We had hired her to do face painting and balloon figures for my son's birthday. She came on time and set up quickly. The kids loved her designs and the parents were impressed with her beautiful artwork. She responded promptly to all questions. Would definitely recommend her.

We can not even begin to express how awesome Tina was! Her communication was spot on allowing us to focus on other areas of our daughters party. Her ideas for a craft table was outstanding and was a huge hit at the party. I was expecting typical face painting but was truly blown away by the amount of detail, the amount of time taken and pride she put into her work (not to mention most of the paintings were full facial and not random "stars and moons" on a cheek). It would not be fair of me to say just how long she stayed but simply put, she was here a great deal longer than what we had originally contracted for and she just wanted to make sure every kid was satisfied. We have all ready referred Tina to other parents and without a doubt will be using her services again in the future.

Jennifer Collins is amazing at what she does. I needed a face painter for my craft fair that I was hosting. She has an assistant and they are both very professional. She was easy to communicate with and she showed up on time. She even dressed according to our theme which was Christmas crafts. The kids all had a great time at her booth and she has some beautiful face painting and cheek work. Jennifer was very friendly with the kids and I was very glad that we were able to book her for this event!

Celia came early to our 2nd birthday party and was a big hit! She was really easygoing and even offered to help set up. The kids' face painting designs were adorable and she did a great job even with moving participants who could not sit still. She was patient and got along with all the kids very well. Thanks, Celia!!

Thank you Sunshine Events for providing fabulous face painting services for the City of Menlo Park's Earth Day event!

I could not say more about seeing the children walk away with huge smiles on their faces from enjoying their personalized works of art. Thanks again Danny, Teresa and team!

Sarah did a great job at my son’s 3rd birthday party! She came in safari gear (we had a jungle theme) and was very entertaining! She started with a safari story and stretching and then worked in ballon twisting, face painting and glitter tattoos! Her fave painting skills are amazing!

She is awesome, it was a large party, and she did not stop to rest although her arm was tired as I noticed. She was doing face painting and her artistic talents are super!! She was right on time and had all her gear with her to do the job. Extremely easy to work with. I would give her 10 stars Peter Muhhawieh you could pass this review to anyone who wants to hire her.

Shelley Capovilla has been hired at a few wineries I've attended. The kids love having their face painted by her because each face is a new canvas and each painting an original work of art. Since she takes her time and paints amazing works of art, the line sometimes can get a little long, but it's well worth the wait. If your kids (or adults) like face painting or henna tattoos, they'll love Shelley's-Style.com/
