I use a variety of brands of FDA compliant, professional face paints. What I have found over the years is that each has it’s strengths and weaknesses. One of my new favorites for brilliant color is Global, and I wanted to share this beautiful butterfly which I created on a friend last week.


I suppose part of what I loved about this design is that it uses some of my favorite colors, which are blues and greens. Global’s colors are so vivid that it’s hard to pick a favorite from my palette, though.


Another great advantage to Global is that, while it’s pigments are very intense, they stain very little, if at all.


I hope you enjoyed this recent example of a simple, floral butterfly, which I had so much fun creating, and I can’t wait to bring similar designs to your events this year!
