Essential Makeup For Bodypaint

Bodypainting artists utilize the human body as their canvas on which to create anything from face paintings, to immersive illusions, fantastic fantasy creatures and creative illustrations that live and breathe. Our vividly pigmented colors and versatile formulas have been globally recognized by bodypainting artists for the professional quality results they yield.


Water-Activated Face & Body Paints

Our water activated colors provide face painters and body artists a broad range of colorful and vividly pigmented hues. Treat these colors similarly to traditional watercolor paints and apply colors with more liquid for a wash effect, or lather into a creamy consistency for vibrant pigmentation and strong line work.

MagiCake colors set on their own and are durable once dried making them an efficient option for all skill levels. MagiCake colors are available in a convenient range of sizes and palette assortments.

Professional Creme Colors

Our Professional Creme Colors come in large sizes that lend themselves beautifully to achieving face and body art designs. The high volume of pigments in the cremes allows them to blend far without losing vibrancy. Mix shades on a mixing palette for custom blends of silky cream tones that work beautifully as a base for face & body art designs.
