EVENT FAQ'

COMMON EVENT  FAQ'S

We have answered some of our most commonly asked questions below.  If you still cannot find what you are looking for, please get in touch and we will be happy to assist.

  • Our minimum booking period is two hours per artist. 

 

  • 1 artist is able to adorn approximately 14 faces per hour, depending on the complexity of the design allowing approximately 3-4 minutes per face.

  • Glitter-Arty will work with you to bring your themes and ideas to life. If you need a little inspiration please ask, we are here to make your event as exciting and beautiful as possible. 

  • It is possible to deliver 18 faces per hour with simplified designs – this will usually be a small design that is created in 2 minutes or under.

  • We calculate our time booked with you based on the complexity and number of faces that can be painted for the duration of the booking.

 

  • To avoid any disappointment and delays on the day, we recommend planning for the maximum number of guests that may want to have their faces painted, including any event organisers, and other artists and allowing for a few additional faces.

 

  • Set up and pack down is approx. 15 minutes and is not included in the booking time. Artists arrival time will therefore be prior to the start time. For larger venues and events with several Artists, a longer set-up time will be required and this will be agreed in advance through our planning communications with you.

 

  • Arrivals of more than 1 hour in advance of the start time can be arranged but will attract an additional standby fee.

  • Please inform us in advance if there are any access issues, paid parking, or parking restrictions at the venue or if there are any special directions or instructions that our Artists should be aware of.

 

  • We offer equipment like gazebos, tables, chairs, glitter tablecloths, backdrops, and mirrors if needed. Their transport and parking will affect the quote. For events near public transport in Central London or city centres with a smaller setup, we'll let you know if we require tables and chairs.

  • If you require your booking to be monetised this can be arranged in advance.

 

  • Please ensure a well-lit area is available for our Artists to work, especially if your event is at night. We can supply appropriate lighting if advance notice is given.

 

  • If your event takes place outdoors, please ensure there's a covered area for our artists to work under.

  • We understand everyone has different budgets for their events and that the costs can easily add up so we are able to offer a range of packages to suit most budgets. Please get in touch. 

  • Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do.  Please ask us about our eco-glitter bar hire.

  • We provide public liability insurance method statements and advance risk assessment documents with contingency plans where necessary.

  • We provide a dedicated Coordinator for events with 4+ artists to maintain standards, ensure safety, and manage queues efficiently.

  • Glitter-Arty is an inclusive company and works positively to bring a little sparkle to everyone.

HEALT & SAFETY

HEALTH & SAFETY

  • Our Public Liability Insurance does NOT cover us to face paint any child under 3 years old. At the discretion of the parent, we can paint a small design on the arm of a child aged 2 to 3 years old.

 

  • Artists will presume that any children under 16 in attendance who ask or queue to be painted will have the express permission and consent from the parent, event organiser, host or supervising adult unless otherwise specified.

  • Artists use only the best quality FDA & EU-approved makeup and face paints. Unfortunately, however, we cannot guarantee that the paint, glitters and makeup applied by our Artists will not cause a reaction or irritation to the skin or eyes. If you agree to us applying our products, you do so at your own risk.

  • In the unlikely event of a skin reaction such as itching, swelling or discomfort, face paint should be washed off immediately with water and a soft cloth. We do not advise the use of soap or baby wipes as this may aggravate the skin further.

 

  • Face paints are easily removed with a face cloth and warm, soapy water. Some stronger colours may mildly ‘stain’ the skin. This will either wear off or baby oil may be gently applied to the area (unless allergic) and removed with cotton wool or soft tissue.  Any face paint on clothing should wash out during a normal wash cycle with detergent.

 

  • Glitter-Arty cannot be held responsible for any staining that does not come out of any fabric.  Please consider this when asking to be painted.

 

  • Any guest or client with cold sores, conjunctivitis, open wounds or any apparent skin or eye sensitivity, infection or disease will not be painted for the safety and well-being of themselves and others.

 

  • By booking us for an event, you give us permission to take event photographs while valuing your privacy. For photos of face-painted guests, we'll obtain consent from parents or guardians for children. These photos may be used for promotional purposes without including names. Your decision to decline social media or marketing use is completely respected, and there's no pressure to do otherwise.

 

  • Glitter-Arty will adhere to all applicable data protection laws and always stores data sent to us in a secure manner. Please refer to our privacy policy for more details.

  • Glitter-Arty will not paint any imagery, symbolism or part of the body that is considered to be indecent or offensive. No abuse or threatening behaviour will be tolerated.

EQUIPMENT & HYGIENE 

Our artists take exceptional care of their materials, ensuring they are thoroughly cleaned, sanitised, and beautifully arranged for your event. To maintain high quality and safety, especially in light of the pandemic, our artists have implemented additional precautions throughout events.

  • Brushes and sponges are washed at high temperatures between events.

  • Face paints are lightly sprayed with a 70% isopropanol solution after each use to eliminate any potential traces of viruses or bacteria.

  • All application brushes are washed in water and then submerged in a 70% isopropanol solution between clients, while application sponges are changed for each client.

FACE PAINT INGREDIENTS

FACE PAINT PRODUCT INGREDIENTS 

We take pride in our commitment to providing top-quality makeup and cosmetic glitters that meet EU and FDA approval standards. Our face paints, makeup, and cosmetics are cruelty-free, and we make a conscious effort to prioritise vegan and vegetarian-friendly options.

At Glitter-Arty, we are deeply dedicated to environmental sustainability. To align with this commitment, we have thoughtfully integrated eco-friendly and biodegradable cosmetic glitters into our product range.

This ensures that our dazzling products not only enhance your beauty but also contribute to the well-being of our planet.

Our exquisite glitters are thoughtfully suspended in a natural base, and a little goes a long way, reducing unnecessary waste. This unique suspension minimises glitter fallout on floors or clothing. When applied, the glitter adheres precisely to the design, dries without smudging, and can be easily removed.

We place our trust in renowned brands such as Diamond FX, Tag, Superstar, Face Paints Australia, Global, Cameleon,  Fusion, Kryolan, and Mehron for our face painting needs.
