There are many reasons I love my job as a professional face painter but my top two reasons are the children’s reactions when they see their face in the mirror for the first time and the second is the joy it brings them for the rest of the party. This is a picture of an adorable little girl that I painted at a birthday party in Chino Hills last weekend. She knew she wanted to be a blue tiger before she even looked at my display board and after I painted her, she BECAME that tiger. She spent the rest of the birthday party “RAWRING” at the guests, brining laughter and “awww’s”. Everyone took pictures and the parents of the party continually complimented my work. It warms my heart that my face painting could bring so much life, laughter and joy into a party and that is exactly why I love what I do.
One of my favorite face painting stories is when I was hired to face paint at a birthday party (when I first started my face painting company) at a park in Rancho cucamonga for a little girl that did not have any hair. I believe she was celebrating her 11th or 12th birthday. She had so many friends and I was humbled by her and her elegant confidence. Normally, I have a very small space on a child’s forehead to paint my designs because of their hairline, but on this little girl, I had a larger space and I utilized it. I painted a flower with swirls around her eyes and when I was done, she loved it! She stood behind me the rest of the party and spoke to me asking questions about how I started painting, if I use to paint when I was her age, how I learned, etc…When I was done face painting all of her friends and party guests, she asked if I would paint flowers down her arm so I did, and when I showed her the mirror to see her face painting design along with her-now-painted-arm, she said in the most sincere and genuine tone that I made her feel like a work of art. It was the most amazing feeling to see her smile light up in that mirror and I swear there was a moment frozen in time where she was just admiring herself and I was frozen there smiling and observing her, not wanting the moment to end. I could tell she knew just how beautiful she was and I will never forget her.
Please keep in mind this is a picture of my work within only 1-3 months of me painting. I was very much a beginner just doing something I enjoyed and practicing till I got much better than this. 🙂

This video was made for my face painting company to document my love and passion of face painting and help people that might be considering my face painting services for their party to make their decision easier. I often get asked how and why I started my face painting company and this video clearly states why. I was very nervous in front of the camera but it still captured my love for what I do every weekend. After all, I do create smiles at birthday parties and events all over the Inland Empire, Orange County and the San Gabriel Valley. I hope you enjoy it!
I (Cynnamon Simonson) had the pleasure of face painting at a Mickey Mouse themed birthday party in Corona, ca today! Out of all of the designs, this Minnie Mouse design was my favorite!!! Its going to be a great addition to my face painting board and I already added it to my facebook and my Google Plus pages! At this same birthday party, I also face painted some Football Logos for the guys! It’s the beginning of Football season and I am up to the challenge of painting logos on faces, arms, backs and more for both guys and gals!
This little guy wanted his Dad’s favorite team logo, the Steelers, painted on one cheek and his Mom’s favorite team logo, the Chargers, painted on the other. If anyone is interested in having their favorite team logo painted for a football game or party, call me today! 909-418-7188!
