It was a little quiet after Christmas but things are starting to get busy here at Face Ace.
I’ve had a few gigs recently in Midgley, Heptonstall and Elland. I love that I have customers all over the Calderdale area.
Here is a gorgeous ladybird design I did recently at a birthday party. I just love this as a choice for a girl who doesn’t want something overly girly and pink but still wants something pretty. What do you think?
Unicorns are still a firm favourite and the Skull design is still a big hit with the boys.
But my favourite new design I’m having fun with is this Space design I created. What do you think?
Well, I hope to see you soon at an event or party near you. Now is a great time to book by the way before summer sends me crazy busy.
So this what I came up with for Halloween 2018
I wanted something a bit fun rather than scary.
There was no “design” in mind, I just free styled. It’s better to do that sometimes instead of trying to copy others. Aside from there being less pressure, you get back in touch with your innate creativity.
I christened it “Confetti skull” as that’s what it reminded me of with all the little colourful pieces. Really vibrant.
I topped it off with a fun red wig – oh -and my cosy jammies! Lol! 😉

Hope you all had a great Halloween!
This weekend I was thrilled to be asked to create a themed MLP board for a little one’s birthday party.
I admit, I had to Google the individual characters as back in the 1980’s when I was a fan, they were completely different. Does anyone remember Cotton Candy and Bubbles? I had a lilac one too but can’t remember it’s name.
So I can’t wait to try these fab designs out tomorrow on real people. Hope they love them as much as I do.
I was pleased to paint a a last minute (for me) birthday party at #Maxwellsfunhouse in Walsden last night. It was even nicer to see some familiar face when I got there.
The theme was Unicorns and I put afew Unicorn choices on my board including this one which birthday girl went for.- so cute!
Mermaids were the other popular design at the party. I belonged them up with some fab bespoke bling by #LGLondon. Don’t they look fabulous?
I didn’t paint any boys at this birthday party apart from a little one wanting a star his hand which I gladly did. It was a quite a girly party with lots of girls wearing rainbow tutus, hairband Unicorn horns and eating pink cupcakes. I am in my comfort zone with girly designs so that was fine by me!
This week, I thought I’d have a go at winter design. Full of pinecones, snowflakes and icicles. I then had fun with a photo app, changing my naturally green eye colour to blue!
I was so happy with how it looked but then something amazing happened. It actually started to snow!
The first snowfall of the season. It felt like I’d prayed to the weather gods or something.
Happy Winter guys!
It’s been a busy summer and it’s not over yet!
On Saturday, I was back in Elland courtesy of Elland District Partnership. I have done afew events for them now and they are always very friendly and community minded. I really look forward to working there. I took another local face painter along too this time. It’s nice to get along with people and I feel lucky to know so many other wonderful face painters. Always handy when an event requires more than one.
The event was celebrating 700 years of Elland being a town so there were lots of activities for children as well as lots of yummy food stalls. I was sandwiched between a Mexican and Pancake stall. Lots of tasty aromas wafting my way all day.
Then on Sunday it was off to a birthday party in Siddal, Halifax. Again a friendly, laid back affair and birthday boy was such a little cutie. This cupcake design looked so cute on this little guest but she wouldn’t let me take a proper picture. She kept turning her head to the side. So sweet though!
That’s all for now Face Acers. Have a great summer.
