Frequently Asked Questions
Marvelous Masks welcomes your questions. If you need more information about something, please feel free to ask. We will try to respond promptly.
Q. What kind of paints do you use? Are they safe?
A. We use professional grade cosmetic paints and glitters which are FDA compliant.
Q. How do you wash off the paints?
A. The easiest way to get face paint off is soap and water. Do NOT use any kind of diaper wipes or sanitary napkins as they often contain chemicals that are rough on the skin.
The best way to remove face paint is by lathering with a LIQUID soap BEFORE rinsing with water. Most colors will come off with one washing, however some of the darker purples and blues may require a second washing. Green unfortunately is the only color that requires more washing. I have tried EVERY brand of green and they all require multiple washing, however I use the brand that is the "easiest" to remove.
Q. What areas to you service?
A. During warm weather months, Marvelous Masks services the entire Chicagoland area. During the winter months, we service the city and immediate suburbs.
Q. How far in advance should I book you?
A. Simple. As far ahead as you can. While I don't charge extra for last minute events, it's easier to guarantee service with a larger notice. Certain times of year tend to be busier than others, but generally 2 to 3 weeks is sufficient.
