Dear eva_santi:
Welcome to the Forum!
I am unsure as to what face paint is available in Cyprus. If Snazaroo is available, it is a fine base for face painting. Shannon Fennell uses Snazaroo, and she does wonders with it. I prefer other wax-based paints for line work: Cameleon, Diamond F/X, TAG.
In hot weather, I am loving Mehron's StarBlends as a base. I ordered all the colours...and find I use White, Red, Black and Green the most, in that order. The powders do not run the way face paint can run in the heat. I have been playing with DIPS, on sponges, which is an alcohol-based hybrid face paint that is easily removed with soap first, then water.

Other face painters will also chime in with their favourite hot weather paint.

Happy Painting!

I'm sorry..... that was painful to read...

Umm pretty much all the brands are good for summer and kids save a few that are a bit melty in hot weather.

If you are just starting, get a snazaroo kit and have fun. Then later upgrade to something more professional.
