About Us

Starshine Face Painting is all about high quality, unique and memorable face painting. We really love art and think there is no better way to use our artistic skills than bringing excitement and wonder to children.

Starshine, also known as Katie, is a primary school teacher during the week and when she discovered face painting couldn't believe she hadn't thought earlier to combine her love of art and children!

Smiggle, aka Alex, our awesome pirate/clown is also a primary school teacher who is a natural entertainer and probably spends too much time in the classroom having fun with the kids rather than teaching them. But then again, we all know kids learn the most when they are having fun! Don't be surprised if he tries to give the kids lessons in astrophysics whilst making them balloon sculptures at a party!

When Fairy Laura takes off her wings, she is a student studying Natural History Illustration and you see this reflected in the detail and creativity of her work. She also has a beautiful gentle nature which draws kids to her.

As our reputation grows we are starting to have our weekends booked up well in advance so are currently looking for another member to join us - if you are naturally artistic and love spending time with children, get in touch!

Products We Use

What products do we use?

We use professional, completely safe and easily removable paints created especially for face and body art. After trying many brands, we found TAG to offer the most amazing vibrant colours combined with a weightless texture, so most of the products we now use are from TAG. We also use Wolfe and Snazaroo. For our balloon twisting, we use only the highest quality professional balloons from Qualatex.
