Alcohol based face and body paints are liquid or solid face paints specifically designed to last for hours, proving sweat and water resistance.
Liquid alcohol based face paints can be applied with a brush and a sponge or using an airbrush. The solid versions need an alcohol based activator to hydrate the product. You just need to drip a few drops of the applicator into the product, rub your brush or sponge in circular motions to create a paste, and then apply to the skin. Because of the alcohol in these products, hey tend to dry very fast and the removal requires the use of liquid soap, makeup remover or baby oil.
Be particularly gentle when removing these products from the skin so not to irritate the skin from excessive rubbing.
It is recommended that you keep alcohol based face paints away from the eyes and other mucus membranes as its alcohol content can irritate the person being painted. You can read more about the properties of each brand by clicking on the links below.
