Introduction: I’ve been Face painting for over 15 years and adore being around children and seeing happy faces when I create fun faces! I’ve worked events such as: Beardsley Zoo Fall Fun Woodcock Nature Center Little Goose of Fairfield Halloween Happy Hour Sails up for Cancer Swim Across the Sound Alzheimer’s Run LivFree Nehemiah Commission Friends of Bridgeport Library Back to School event Chapel Street School field day Barnum Festival Wing Ding Milford Oyster Festival Faerie Frolic Choice Pets - retail events Greenwich Fun Run I pride myself on my creative work, timeliness and follow through with my prospective clients. I may reach out to you during the review process- so as not to fall prey to missing your event or other issues. Please don’t be offended, but I find that most of my clients appreciate gracious and thorough follow up. I offer the very best to each of my clients including custom invoicing, ability to pay using credit or debit, and gifts for my small friends in a private setting. I ask only that: you the client, provide weather and temperature protected environment, do not allow children to lean on or touch any of my supplies or case, and that my small guests get a number so that we can ensure everyone has fun and gets painted! Thank you! I look forward to creating a magical and creative event!

We had my daughters 7th Birthday Party and had 15 girls attend. Carina did a wonderful job. She made sure that the child sitting in her chair had her undivided attention and it was about making that child's face painting experience special. My daughter wants Carina to come back next year.

Face Painting

Have you ever been into a kid's party and witnessed an artist surrounded by more than 20 kids wanting to have their faces painted with the coolest design and colors and then running to their parents to show them how great they look? Have you ever experienced that before? If your answer is no then you haven't seen Carina because that is precisely what she does. She arrived early, set up her materials and then started painting the most amazing designs anything from superheroes, beautiful butterflies, amazing animals and scary spiders! Everybody loved her and I would definitely recommend her for your next party!

Face Painting

This artist is a great option for a children’s party. We had 30 kids and all who wanted to get painted, were painted. The paintings were professional, with layers and lots of detail. Gems were also added (included in the price). All the children loved it! My two birthday girls said this was their best party yet!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Pricing is per hour, I also have special pricing for any 501 3C, non-profit booking an event with me. I have a 2 hour minimum per event. I can paint: 8-12 guests per hour for quick full faces includes glitter 6-10 guests per hour for more detailed full faces includes glitter 15-20 guests for simple cheek art only no glitter or glitter tattoos only no art. For custom photo ready, specialty party faces with extreme detail and applications max 2 per hour (think high end masquerade or prepared for theater or professional video)

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    When I reserve a calendar date for a new customer, I take a few moments to gather all the details, ages of guests, how many guests, type of event, any concepts or themes, location, and particularly indoor or outdoor queries. I must have a phone number, full name of event coordinator, email and location of event as well as 50% of the agreed upon price as a non-refundable deposit applied to the event or a future event. payments can be remitted through the emailed invoice sent securely through Square which allows you to pay with debit or credit and add gratuity. At the event, I can accept Square (open existing invoice on your phone and pay) Paypal, Venmo or cash for the balance, and payment must be submitted before FacepaintingbyCarina leaves. Gratuity is not included and greatly appreciated.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a degree in Art from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY, and have been face painting for over 12 years.
