1. What do I need to provide?

The only things you need to do is provide the room where you want the party held, a room in your own house or it can be a hall that you have booked, you will also need to provide the party food. For the makeover parties held in the home we will need the use of a television for the Nintendo Wii.

2. What do you bring?

We will bring depending on which party is chosen all the decoration, costumes and accessories, background screens, Props, make-up or face paints, nail & hair products, body tattoos, party bags filled with quality goodies (age dependant), prizes, Nintendo Wii with games and arts & crafts.

3. What products do you apply?

As most of the parties are for younger children we understand that their skins are sensitive so we do not apply heavy products. The make-up we use is for sensitive skin. The face paints are also for sensitive skin and we don’t apply them all over the face just a small design on their cheeks. For the older girl’s parties there is more time spent on the make-up and a lot more choice for them.
