Is oil or water-based face paint better?

It all depends on what type of look you are going for and what your needs are. If you are wanting to quickly wash all the paint off once you get home from a party, then water-based face paints are better. However, they are also prone to running if you get sweaty.

Oil-based face paints have much longer staying power and are great for parties where you will be moving around a lot or when walking around during Halloween. Just keep in mind that because they will stay on longer, they will also be harder to remove once you get home.

Does body paint come off of clothes?

Again, completely getting paint stains out of your clothes heavily depends on what type of body paint you are using. But if an accident does happen and you need to remove the stain, here are some helpful tips:

  • Rinse out as much of the stain as possible from the surface of the fabric.
  • Apply stain remover or baking soda before washing.
  • Put the clothes in the washing machine on a hot wash cycle.
  • Remember - only air dry the clothes if there is no visible stain. Allowing stained clothes to dry will cause the stain to set in.

Is SFX makeup bad for the skin?

Special effects makeup can be a little trickier to remove once it's applied - but can be harsh on the skin if not removed correctly. This is why many products are used, such as isopropyl alcohol and even olive oil to help remove the SFX makeup properly. However, the effort is worth it as the results are far superior to using traditional face paint.
