large party & events

$225 for two hours*

Recommended for up to 40 guests. Quick but impressive designs that will make your guests happy and get everyone in on the fun.

Denise is one of the best face painters in the world. These are her best faces with all the bells and whistles. Rainbow Fairies, Butterflies, Unicorns, Tigers, Superheroes, Kitties and more! These are the faces that cost up to $25.00 at fairs and festivals...but you don't have to wait an hour in line!


Ideal for small parties where you want to have great photos and make memories for everyone. These parties are limited to 12 faces because of time needed to let the child choose colors, apply glitters and gems, and lip color and take photos. Up to 12 faces and will take about 2 hours. (*See below for travel rates for your area.)

If you are planning a big party with more than 20 guests, I need to pull my quickest designs out so that I can paint as many kids as possible (and adults that want to join in too!) I have to charge a little more because I will be painting at full speed.


Ideal for family reunions, tailgaters, Quinceañeras, neighborhood HOA parties & company picnics. I will paint approximately 30 - 40 guests.

quick mix party

$200.00 for up to 20 guests (Most Popular)

These small wonders are still impressive and some of the best you've seen but can be done quickly so we can accommodate more guests.

$300 for two hours*

Super-quick designs for up to 50 guests. (Additional artists will be required for larger crowds. Please note on the inquiry form the expected attendance.)

When you are expecting a crowd and would like to offer free face painting, you need a professional that comes prepared for the unique dynamic. I have a limited super-quick design picture menu of proven designs that help me get through a line quickly. I don't take special requests that typically suck away valuable time.


I'm able to offer this service by having a paid line manager who watches for line cutting, helps guests chose before they get to the artist, and makes sure faces are clean and ready to go. This helps tremendously with moving the line quickly and also ending the line in a kindly and professional manner so tempers don't flare. 


Please let me know if you plan on over 50 guests and I will include more painters in the bid.

(*See below for travel rates.)

These are Denise's $10.00 to $15.00 faces at fairs. They are a little quicker at 3-5 minutes each but still impressive. The menu is a mix of 1/4 face designs and some simple mask designs ( ie: there is a full butterfly on the menu but it has much less detail.)  This is the party to choose if you are sure you'll have under 20 guests.

Makeup Alternatives

$250 for two hours*

Airbrushing, water proof paints and glitter tattoo body art are an alternative to the typical face painting option and last for days and are water resistent.

We've added airbrushing, water-proof paints and glitter tattoo body art to the Painted Party options for pool parties and high heat days. Airbrush makeup should last 3 days or longer with proper care, glitter tattoos up to a week.


The airbrush makeup can also be used for corporate events where a specific logo or theme stencil can be created and the results are water and sweat resistant. Also good for photo shoots or commercial ad work. Live out your tattoo fantasy without the needles.

(*See below for travel rates for your area.)

Denise can come to your weekday charity event at a discounted rate. I cannot offer charity rates on Friday, Saturday or Sunday events.

Charlotte is a large area metropolitan area of very generous non-profit organizations and charities. I cannot possibly paint for all non-profits for free but I am willing to work at a reduced rate with these "charity" criteria:


  • The event must be Monday - Thursday or full rate "free to public" rate will be charged.

  • It MUST be for a good cause...a CHARITY event to help those less able or unable to help themselves.

  • The charity must be a 501(c)3 and provide documentation. Non-profit does not necessarily equal "charity" so I will be asking why you need a discounted rate.

  • The charity must provide a volunteer for the whole event to manage the line and take any monies if necessary.

  • Time travel fee l will still be added to the bid.


I will travel up to 20 minutes from my home for free. After that, I must a small travel fee. I will put your address into Google Maps, the time of the party and the time from my home to yours will determine the fee range. Certain times of the day will add more time to the travel so you may want to plan your party AROUND high congestion times.


I will give a travel discount for multi-hour (4+) events. Fill out the inquiry form as completely as possible so I can adjust the bid accordingly.
