1. Do you paint your face for your events or go clean faced?


2. I have huge pores in the T-zone--anyone know a good way to reduce the size--that actually works? I facepaint on myself to practice, but I am just not happy with the large pores showing up on the pictures--and man I never knew how many wrinkles I had until I do some eye painting--wow Gotta work on those too!! :0


Really you tried your best.Practice make man perfect.

I'm intrigued - how do you make pores look smaller by "practice"? You must have very strong will indeed! Wink

You CAN'T do this, Kammy? I thought everyone could. I can also make myself taller and control the tides. jocolor

For festivals or PPF events, I paint myself once I'm there (see my avatar for an example). I find that people watching me paint myself really gets the line going once I open and other vendors will vouch for me since they saw the before and after.

For birthday parties, I will sometimes wear a little single-eye design there, but not always.

I do like this primer, and it's available at my grocery store (or Ulta):

I use a very small amount of it and it works well, but I would say it's not for very oily skin. My skin has gotten less oily as I've gotten older and this product leaves your skin feeling a bit dewy. It does not work as well as the one I linked to below, but it's more affordable for daily use.

If I'm having an oily day, I LOVE this one, but it's stupid expensive - though OMG, it works well:

I've also used the green one to reduce skin redness before I put on foundation.

I have never tried the Laura Mercier primer, but I hear really good things about that line of primer/foundation.

I wrote this in another thread (and posted a pic). I found a product that ACTUALLY works very well to visibly reduce pores. Two weeks to a big difference. And not real expensive, If I remember it was under $10. It's L'Oreal "Go 360 Clean" Deep Facial Cleanser. It's green and comes in a plastic bottle with a neat little spikey soft rubber cleaning pad (reusuable) that pops right in and out of a hole in the outside of the bottle. It's fantastic stuff and works!!!

I never paint my face on the job, simply because i tend to rub my face when I'm focussed.By the time I'm going home I have paint all over my face from rubbing it with my paint-stained hands all day long :-)

I do however paint my arms with arm designs/cheek art. (if I have the time)

Paint my face with some abstract eye design.
Fast.
Brilliant colors.

I waitressed and bartended my way through art college. We were NEVER supposed to touch our face or hair. That still holds true for me today. I will not touch my face while I am face painting. I am very sensitive to perfume, makeup and some face paint. I will still not touch my face while I am painting someone else's face. No Matter how much it it bothering me.

Happy itch free painting.
