Dia De Los Muertos, also known as the Day of the Dead, is a Mexican holiday celebrated to honor ancestors and people in our life that have passed away. Face painting what is called a “sugar skull” is very popular for this particular holiday because it represents the Calavera. A Calavera is a representation of the human skull normally made of sugar or clay and it is customary to decorate it and paint it similar to the way we do when we paint faces. The holiday is celebrated on the full weekend of Oct 31st, Nov 1st and Nov 2nd so there are many parties that use the “Day of the Dead” as the theme of their event and sometimes I am hired to do face painting and makeup for parties specifically geared toward the holiday itself.

These are all adults that I have painted at different events over the years.
I can’t say this enough; face painting is not JUST for kids. I have been getting more and more calls from adults that are looking for face painting and makeup for costume parties, themed parties, holidays, sporting events and more! It’s funny because I consistently get adults at children birthday parties that want to get painted along with the children and I am ALWAYS happy to paint them! I paint anyone young-at-heart and I always hope that includes the whole party no matter what age they are. haha. Anyways, here are some pictures of adults I have painted for Masquerade parties, Black Light Reflective events, The Day of the Dead holiday, wine festival events, business expos, Halloween, costume parties, sporting events and more!
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!
I have been requested for many superhero themed birthday parties in Riverside, Rancho Cucamonga and other areas of the Inland Empire and wanted to post some of the popular designs. Boys love my superhero, knight in shining armor, batman, wolverine and flash face painting designs.
