First and foremost, relax. Are they paying you hourly or are the families paying you per face? If they are paying you hourly, you paint as many as you can paint and oh well to the rest. If parents are paying per face, you may actually find yourself pretty bored with only 150 families there (when there's a charge, you'll often only get about 10% of them willing to do it).

Nothing gets your speed up like having a line Wink

Rainbow cakes for sure!

DFX Neon Rainbow cakes are wonderful for butterflies and tigers.

Regular (NOT neon) Rainbow one-strokes are awesome for creating rainbows. The sky is the limit with rainbow designs! You could do little cheek rainbows with clouds on each ends, or a rainbow across the forehead and down the cheek with lots of hearts, swirls, teardrops, etc. It's very easy to make a variety of designs just based off of the rainbow cakes!

The reason I don't recommend the neon rainbow one-stroke is that it can be difficult to use with a brush. I personally find it gets muddy really easily, and doesn't produce the same OOMPH as it does with a sponge. I recently bought the TAG Regular 6-Colour Rainbow One-stroke and lovelovelove it!

you can sponge a rainbow cake, it doesn't have to be done with a brush.

Homemade one-stroke neon rainbow, 1 inch flat brush... easy-peasy daisies and some white fairy dust! Extremely quick design. Very Happy

ooooooh I love the rainbow!! Very nice. I can't wait to have enough paints to make my own one stroke cakes!!! till then I will pick up one here one there. I hate not being able to spend what I want on paints but just starting out and unemployed = no money to spend Sad but it will get better and I will be able to buy someday.

stencils with a rainbow cake and then outlining the design in white or black? probably would save a lot of time for cheek art stuff...
