Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I choose you?


SO MANY REASONS! Imagine it's years from now and you're looking through your children's photos. Do you really want to see your child's face wearing a tragic lack of talent? Photos last forever. It's not worth saving $10. We have been doing this for more than 3 years and that's why we can offer both speed and quality. What's the point of hiring an amateur at a cheaper hourly rate that takes longer? It could end up costing more. We don't stop practicing and attending professional training conventions such as FABIAC. We are insured. We are always using the highest quality products and follow safety standards. Don't settle for less. We are trusted by the University of California San Diego, Lyft, Young's Market Company, Mitzvah Event Productions, Home Street Bank, Koam Engineering Systems, Inc., Mark Twain High School, MRI Interventions, Faith Chapel, Jessica Fels Event Production & Design and many more.

Do I have to pay for your set up and tear down time?


No, we get there early enough to be ready to start right when your booking begins.




How to remove face paint?


Face paints that we use are formulated for easy removal with mild bar soap and water and a wash cloth. Light colors come off with just a baby wipe. Some darker colors can linger. If this happens use a washcloth with soap and cold cream or any oil (for example, coconut or baby oil). Should the paint get on clothes, use OxyClean or stain pre-treater along with regular laundry soap. Glitter Tattoos can be removed using a little oil.




It's raining and I want to cancel my party. What do I do?


Please list an alternate indoor location for your event in advance because we do not offer refunds for inclement weather. If you need to cancel the event for some other reason, please do so within 24 hours or you will owe us the contracted amount. In the case of postponement, we will work with you to accommodate an alternate date; however, due to other bookings and commitments, availability may be limited.




How many faces can you per hour?


One Artist can paint approximately 6 to 15 faces per hour depending on the intricacy of the designs that are chosen. Be sure to book your time accordingly to avoid leaving anyone out. PLEASE do not ask us to disappoint any guests due to lack of time booked. Sometimes we have an event booked right after yours and we may not be able to stay past stop time.




Should I know about any extra fees?


Travel fees apply when the event is more than 25 miles from 92110. Generally $20-25 per artist depending on the distance. Depending on your event, there may be a charge for outdoor, lengthy or difficult setup - usually $20-30 but please call for a quote. Parking fees must be paid to artist with other payment. Should a check be returned, there is a $30 returned check fee.




What do you need for set up from me? How lond does it take?


We just need a minimum of 6’W x 4’L of level space for 1 Artist. We will be asking you to ensure there is a shaded area available in the daytime and/or a good lightening available in the night time for comfort of the artist and guests. Usually it takes around 10-15 minutes to set up. For the big events we arrive to the venue 20-30 mins prior to the start time.




What if I want an individual service?


No problem! Designs are bespoke, just email us directly at kateandfaces@gmail.com or simply make a note of it in the booking form!




Do you dress up for a party?


If you would like to add a costume to fit your theme, just ask and we'll see what we have in our wardrobe. The cost will depend on the costume requested.
