When did you start to learn face painting?

I’ve enjoyed drawing and painting at a young age. I am a self-taught face painting artist who had refined her skills through online tutorials. I am proud to say that I will be attending the FABAIC 2022 (Face and Body Art International Convention) in Orlando, Florida, in May next year! I am so excited to meet international face painters all over the world, attend classes, special events and competitions that the FABAIC is known for.

How do I wash off the face paint from my skin?

The paints I use are easy to remove. Just use soap, warm water, and a soft cloth. Baby wipes work well too! If mild staining occurs, use a moisturizer on your face, wait for 30 minutes then repeat the process or try using a makeup remover. It is best to wash off the face paint before going to bed.
