“Our face painter was totally amazing my daughter was turning 3 and the artist showed up in full fairy attire.. my little girl loved it .. she painted all sorts of designs super fast and everyone looked amazing.” Ally

“Hired happy kids face painting for my daughters 1st birthday. We had Andrea who was lovely and painted 20+ kids faces in the hot summer heat. She arrived on time and the kids loved her designs. Would definitely hire her again. Thanks Andrea!” Siniva

“Highly recommend Happy Kids and team. Called them for my daughters 4th. The kids enjoyed themselves. 👌👌” Abbas

“I booked a face painter for my nieces 3rd birthday, Pilar was our artist and was fantastic. Very professional in her set up and knew exactly how to deal with the kids making them feel comfortable and excited with the face art she was creating. Many people commented on her amazing work and I’d thoroughly recommend using Happy Kids Face Painting for any kids events.” Mat

“My kids had the pleasure of having the owner of Happy Kids Face Painting do their face painting. She is amazing with a very different technique . My sons Batman face paint took around a minute to do and my daughters around 2 minutes and it looked fantastic! My kids were delighted with their face paint. The owner also has a very nice manner with children. She said she trained her staff to also work in the same manner. I would certainly recommend this business if you need a face painter. My son loved his face paint so much he asked me to put this review on here!” Tay

Frequently Asked Questions

What area do you cover?

Artists of Happy Kids Face Painting Ltd. are based all around Auckland. We can also provide our services in the greater Auckland area, but please note that if you are more than 20 km from central Auckland we may charge extra travel costs.

What kind of face paint do you use?

All the paints we use are high-quality, water-based, 100% safe professional paints. We only work with professional tools and high hygiene standards.

What do I need to supply?

Nothing. We supply all necessary materials. The Happy Kids Face Painter will arrive with her own table, a couple of chairs and professional kit. All you need to provide is a well-lit area with shade.

How do you maintain high hygiene standards?

At each event we use clean, fresh sponges for each child and we clean our hands with antibacterial wipes after each child. We also use antiseptic drops in the water for painting. We wash our brushes and sponges between each job and sanitise our kit appropriately.

What is your cancellation policy?

If you cancel your booking, we charge 10% of the quote we provided. A minimum $40 cancellation fee (per booked artist) will apply. For any cancelations made within 48 hours of the event, the full quoted amount is non-refundable.

What if the child has a cold or rash?

Unfortunately we are not able to paint anyone who appears to be sick (a cough or runny nose), or who is suffering from any skin condition (rashes, cold sores, wounds).

How do I get this stuff off?

The paints are water based and will wash off relatively easily with mild soap and water.

Who can be painted?

We prefer to paint kids over two years, however, we will happily offer a small design on the cheek or hand to younger children.
