professional products and are manufactured for use on skin.

Face paints and cake make-up (used for theatre) are water based,

contain antibacterial agents and can easily be removed with warm soapy water.

Children under the age of 2 can not be face painted due to sensitivity of the skin.

Other products such as latex-used for character make-up and casualty effects may

need a skin test prior to application

Things you need to know before you book...


Skin complaints


It is the responsibility of the organiser, guardian or performers to notify us of any skin allergies/complaints prior to the make-up/face paint being applied.

We will refuse to face paint/make-up anyone that

suffers from any contagious or infectious skin complaints including psoriasis, cold sores, eye infections, impetigo, open wounds and inflamed scaly skin.

Face paint/make-up is not recommended for clients with dry or sensitive skin as it could in some cases worsen their condition or cause irritation.

To avoid disappointment we may be able to paint on an arm, hand or feet instead.

If you are concerned or have any questions regarding the above please contact us.




If the guardian/performer does not disclose any infection or skin complaint then Kabuki will not be held responsible for any adverse reaction caused by the paints or products used.


Parental consent

Children will not be face painted unless they are accompanied by a consenting adult at all times.

At private events/parties it is the responsibility of the organiser to ensure parents/guardians have given permission and that in their absence the organiser ensures children are kept at a safe distance from the workstation and not to allow inquisitive hands to play with the products as this may contaminate them and are expensive to replace.


We do not paint children under the age of two, as they have sensitive skin and do not understand the concept of face painting.


For parties located outside a ten mile radius of Rochdale an additional fee will be charged to cover travel expenses.
