About Face Art by Melissa

Backstage at the TODAY show

Welcome to Face Art by Melissa, NYC’s premier event services company, named one of NYC’s Top 6 Party Entertainers by Time Out NY Kid’s magazine! Add sparkle and fun to any event with fabulous face and body painting, magical princess visits, authentic looking airbrush tattoos, rainbow hair braiding and fairy hair, jewelry tattoos and gorgeous glitter tattoos by Face Art by Melissa!

Manhattan based, but yes, we do travel to the Hamptons; available for private parties, corporate events, trade shows, nightclubs, weddings, brand marketing activations, fundraisers, street fairs, and school events.

Children LOVE having their faces painted! Watch as your child is transformed into a princess, tiger, butterfly or ninja…we will go wherever their imagination takes them!! We love to be a part of this experience. We do many events for grown ups, too- from 30th, 40th and 50th birthday parties, to black tie events, everyone deserves some fun and glamour!

We use only FDA approved, theatrical grade, hypoallergenic face paints, all of which wash off with mild soap and water.

We have reasonable rates and would love to talk with you about your event and any special requests or themes.

We understand the magic you want to bring to your family’s special moments!

No event is too big or too small, last minute bookings happily scheduled, if our calendar allows!
