Please note that there may be a delay in response time, but I will get back to you within 2 weeks time as I undergo treatment for breast cancer and focus on my recovery. Also, please note that I am just scaling back, not quitting. We've got you covered! ;)

Customer Reviews:

Thank you so much!  You did such a wonderful job and my girls can’t stop talking about you.  My older daughter is already asking me to see if you can come for her birthday party with her friends.  Thank you so much again!.   Corinda Elliott - January, 21, 2018

We used Shining Faces for face painting and balloon animals at our school carnival this year and our experience could not have been more amazing! 

The ladies were professional, amazingly quick and were such talented artists! We had rave reviewsfrom all of the families who attended the carnival, look forward to booking them for our next carnival and highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great local business to support for any event!

Shining Faces did a wonderful job helping my childcare celebrate our 10 year anniversary. Between face painting and the balloon animals they kept 30+ kiddos very busy and happy. I would definitely recommend and use them again for future events.

We hired Manja to paint adults' faces at my partner's 50th birthday party--she was so amazing, we hired again at our wedding party. She's friendly, professional, and super talented. All of our guests loved the work she did! Fun, whimiscal, sparkly, and glamourous are a few adjectives to describe her work.

Manja and her team are AWESOME! We've hired them for a few large-scale events. They've been professional, fun to work with, and courteous. Our guests have been amazed at the high-quality products and hard work that they put in to their art. We will definitely use Shining Faces again!

Manja has offered services at several company events, and I have also had the pleasure of being used as a technique for make-up prototypes :-) She is a wonderful balance of creativity and professionalism, and works well with clients of all ages. She is always top of my list for corporate entertainment.
