Hi, I am Eni (pronounced as any). Mom to 3 amazing and little crazy kids. I started face painting in order to throw my daughter an awesome 4th birthday party. Needles to say, I did not even have any time to do face painting at that party…
I was born and raised in Hungary, Europe and came to the U.S.A. in 2001 to complete my internship for my Bachelor’s degree in Tourism & Hotel Management. I met my husband when he was stationed in Hungary. We have been living in Kansas since 2003 when he got out of the Army. I have changed my profession from hotel business over to accounting, but even that plan has changed after our twins were born. Nowadays my job is to raise our 3 little ones!
Face paint immediately became a big hit with my kids and also with their friends. I have been invited to birthday parties and business events. My kids eventually got bored of face painting (Yes, it is possible! I have to bribe mine with lollipops to practice on them.) In order to stay a cool mom, I've learned how to make balloon animals!
Now I offer face painting, balloon twisting and glitter tattoos.
I am using professional face paint products (Tag, Diamond FX, Wolfe, Kryvaline) that contain FDA approved, cosmetic grade ingredients, and are safe to use on the skin. They are all water based and can be easily removed with soap and water or baby oil. I can paint about 10-20 people in an hour, but this varies by the design.
Glitter tattoo is water resistant and stays on the skin for a couple of days. It is easily removable with baby oil. I can make about 20 tattoos/hour.
Balloon twisting depends what the kids want. Swords are fast and easy and one of the biggest hits and I can make one in about a minute. However, monkeys and puddles take up 2-3 minutes.
