Face Painting

Santa Barbara Face Painting uses non-toxic, hypo-allergenic, FDA approved Snazaroo face paints. We also use cosmetic glitter, which is safe for your face! We have a book of designs for boys and girls of all ages. We have cheek or hand designs, half or full face designs. We can also freehand. If you have a special theme for your party, we can paint for your theme. We have done everything from pirate and princess themes to Hello Kitty and Thomas the Train. See pictures!

Henna “Tattoos”

Try a face painting and henna party! There is something for everybody. The kids can get their faces painted, and the teenagers and adults can do henna. Our henna is all natural, and lasts 2-3 weeks on your hands and feet. Henna is safe for people of all ages. Henna paste is made out of powered henna leaves, lemon juice, and sugar. We draw it on with a henna cone, which is like a frosting cone. You keep it on for 2-4 hours, and magic! You have a safe, temporary “tattoo”. Henna is a beautiful red-brown color. Learn more about henna and see pictures of our work!

Glitter and Glamour Parties

We do fun, kid-appropriate makeup, nails and hair! Hire us for a girl’s glamour party! We use chemical free, low odor, vegan nail polish. We also have bright, easily washable temporary hair chalks, and we can also do hair braiding. Learn more about our Glitter and Glamour Parties and see pictures!

Balloon Twisting and Giant Bubbles

Balloon twisting is a great companion to face painting! We make balloon animals, swords, flowers, and more. 

Also, you might have seen those giant bubbles around town! These are becoming popular for birthday parties, and of course we added our own twist with our Bubble Party Package! You can have face painting, giant bubbles, and your very own mermaid (or pirate!).

Arts, Crafts, and Science Activities

Arts and crafts are a fun, creative addition to any birthday party. Let us organize your kids party crafts for you! We can customize for any age or theme. For the little kids, we can help them make their own crowns or wands. We can do a custom coloring station with birthday messages or images that go with your theme, or even make cards! We can do jewelry and painting projects for any age. For the older kids, we can do a do-it-yourself henna party where they learn all about henna and how to apply it themselves!
