Little ones love things that are sparkly. Honestly most adults love a little bling as well! But did you know not all glitter is created equally when it comes to cosmetic use?
Craft glitter is typically found in the arts and crafts aisle at super centers or at your local hobby/craft store. These glitters are great for various arts and crafts projects but should NEVER be used on the face. Most craft glitters are made from aluminum sheets that are coated and treated with a reflective substance. They are cut in small circle shapes which allow them to flow freely when applied. You may find some craft glitters made from crushed mica or some other sort of mineral which often times will make the glitter smaller but the dyes used to color them often aren’t designed for skin use.
Evolutionz Face & Body Art only uses fine cosmetic glitter. Cosmetic glitter is usually a poly-coated (polyethylene terephthalate) pigment cut to .0004” or smaller hexagonal shape. The dyes used in FDA cosmetic approved glitters are safe for the skin.
Here are some fun facts about glitter (make sure you visit our Facebook Fan Page for Trivia Thursday as some of these facts will be questions!):
· Glitter was invented by Henry Ruschmann.
· Back in 40,000 B.C. ancient civilizations used mica flakes as glitter, it’s reflective qualities added sparkle to cave paintings and rituals
· In modern times glitter is used in cosmetics, foods, construction, and more.
· Glitter’s greatest use is for industrial purposes (from fine diamond glitter used to polish tools to glitter being added to flooring products for decorative purposes).
It’s rumored that the pop star spends $1,000's on glitter each month!
Glitter tattoos are so much fun! Kids love them. Teens adore them. Hosting a glitter tattoo is an inexpensive way to pack a lot of WOW into your event. They are great for larger events and typically with my wonderful "glitter gal" I can "tattoo" 20-30 guest per hour.
I'm sure you've seen those cool kits on TV, they are nice and very similar to what I use but they don't provide the variety of stencils, colors, and professional application I offer.
Ever wonder how I learned to Face Paint? Well I practice a whole lot! I practice almost daily. My practice can be as simple as working on painting straight lines and tear drops or as complex as painting a design on myself. It's amazing how practice makes a difference in the quality of your work. Below are some of my practice faces.
Back to school is a busy time, both for me as a parent and as a Face Painter. So as you're getting those little ones ready for school this year, attending PTO meetings, and Booster club meetings don't forget that Evolutionz Face & Body Art is here for all your Face Painting and Glitter Tattoo needs.
