frequently asked questions
Q: What locations do you serve?
I am based in Derry, Northern Ireland and serve county Londonderry, Donegal, Tyrone and some areas of Antrim. There is a 2-hour minimum for events located over 20 miles from my base location. Additional travel charges might be incurred depending on the distance to your location. Please contact me for rates and travel fees.
Q: What kind of products do you use?
I only use professional, highest quality face and body paints, make-up products and cosmetic glitter. I ensure all products have been dermatologically tested and are safe for the skin. We never use acrylic paint or craft glitter as these are not meant to be used on skin and could cause severe skin reactions.
Q:How many hours should I book for?
I average between 10-13 kids per hour, this allows me to paint a range of small and larger designs that are still pleasing to the eye. If you plan to have a public event, please ask about our speed-painting. I can also provide additional fellow face painters to help me cover larger events.
If you would like a bump painting, body painting or sfx make-up session, or if you are looking to do a photo shoot, more time will be needed. The amount of time required may vary so please get in touch to discuss in more detail.
Q: Are you insured?
Absolutely. Anna’s Cheeky Faces has public liability insurance. (Proof of insurance is available upon request.)
Q: Is there ever a reason why you would refuse to paint somebody?
Yes. I cannot paint anybody with a contagious skin condition or illness such as but not limited to: conjunctivitis, cold sores, molluscum contagiosum, lice, chicken pox, ringworm, a contagious cough, or in the presence of a cold or flu. I also cannot paint on skin that has open sores or wounds. This is in order to protect my face painting equipment from contamination which could then potentially spread disease to other children I paint. I follow strict health and sanitation guidelines in order to protect my clients. If you are not feeling well, please hold off for now and ask me to paint your face once you are feeling well again! I will be more than happy to do so, and will look forward to painting you in the future.
