FAQ's for Hiring a face painter

What should I look for when hiring a face painter?

When booking a face painter, make sure to check their experience, qualifications, reviews, and availability. You may also want to ask about their hygiene and safety procedures, insurance, and where they are DBS registered.


  • Check the portfolio of their previous work to show you. They should be able to answer any questions you have.
  • Face painting involves using makeup and other materials that come in direct contact with the skin, so it's important to make sure that the artist practices good hygiene and follows appropriate safety procedures. They should use clean brushes and sponges, and should avoid using products that may cause allergic reactions or skin irritation.
  • Check reviews and references from previous clients to see if they were satisfied with their work.
  • Some face painters may have insurance and contracts in place to protect themselves and their clients. You may want to ask if they have liability insurance and if they provide a contract outlining their services and expectations.


How much does a face painter charge?

The cost of a face painter can vary depending on several factors, such as the event type, location, experience, and the complexity of the designs they offer. On average, a face painter may charge anywhere from £40 to £100 per hour in the UK.


Some face painters may also charge a flat rate for a certain number of hours or number of faces painted.

Why hire a professional face painter?

It can be tempting to save money and do the face painting yourself or ask a friend to do it. However, we strongly advise that you use a professional face painter that has the appropriate training and experience in creating high-quality, intricate designs that are both creative and safe.


Professional face painters follow strict hygiene and safety guidelines, using clean brushes, sponges, and water for each person to prevent the spread of infections. They also use high-quality, non-toxic and hypoallergenic face paints and avoid using paints too close to the eyes or mouth to minimise the risk of irritation or allergic reactions.
