As children, most of us were only familiar with makeup as something that our mother’s used or something that clowns wore. Maybe on Halloween we would use costume makeup to go as a skeleton or a monster or, in fact, a clown. Or when we would go to the local carnival or county fair and get a balloon or a flower or something like that painted on our cheek.
Well, you can recall that very same fun at your next family event by employing a face painter (or maybe even trying it yourself).
Face Painting in Toronto is A Lot of Fun For Everybody
Obviously, the primary reason to get your face painted is that it is a lot of fun to make believe. For children, of course, the world of their imagination is one of few limits—if any at all—and they probably have favorite story characters from fairy tales, movies, television programs, and other stories. Or maybe they just love the idea of transforming their face into something they have never seen before or a hybrid monster or fantasy creature. Indeed, face painting lets you bring your imagination to life.
Not Just People But Animals Too
No, no; I don’t mean to say that you should put face paint on your pets. No; what I mean is that young children also often have a favorite animal. As such, perhaps they will want to paint their face like a tiger or a panda bear. Perhaps they might want to look a bit like the family pet too! That could be a fun and festive way to celebrate the furry member of your family, who is probably also your child’s best friend at that very young, impressionable, and magical age.
Why Parents Like Face Painting
Sure, face painting keeps kids sitting still for a few minutes while the artist applies the makeup but it can also be a fun experience for the child, too, if their parents also participate. Of course, even as an adult you don’t need an excuse to have your college logo or your favorite sports team painted on your cheek; or maybe you really do want to relive that whimsy of childhood and play around just like the kids at the party.
Go nuts! It’s all about having fun!
