Oil paints for face and body are made from various mineral oils, synthetic waxes and coloring pigments. These paints are thicker than water-based paints and harder to work with, but they hold much better and look brighter.
Basically, this is make-up, which is used to make up theater and film actors.
This makeup is not recommended for children under three years old. If you want to arrange a colorful holiday for kids, but face painting does not suit you in terms of its durability, then it is better to use crayons or wax-based pencils. They are easy to use, they can quickly draw different patterns on the faces of small children, or even let the children themselves paint each other.
In order for oil paints for the face and body to hold well, you need to properly prepare the skin. They are applied to clean, dry skin, without any base. If your skin is very dry, you can use a little light moisturizer on the face, let it soak in and blot the rest with a paper towel. After that, you can apply makeup, then powder and sprinkle with a special make-up fixative. This is to ensure that makeup does not float on the stage or in the middle of filming a tense take. Make-up is removed with an oil remover or any other permanent makeup remover.
In addition to the usual pastel paints, there are also fluorescent and fluorescent paints.
Luminescent is a paint with a luminous phosphor pigment. Phosphoric paint is not yet called. Pigment phosphor, as it were, accumulates sunlight, and then gives it back in the dark.
The glow of a fluorescent paint can only be seen under ultraviolet rays. This paint glows brighter and is more affordable. But in daylight there will be no effect from it, therefore body art and face art using such paint are made for nightclubs.
Both pigments are absolutely safe and hypoallergenic, so they are added to body paints, hair and nail varnishes, and acrylic paints.
