Who am I?
My name is Liz Alaniz. I am from Texas and have lived in San Antonio for the past 37 years. I love San Antonio and her diverse communities. She is large enough to attract global and national influences and small enough to know and really care about you and your neighbors. She is a great city!
What do I do?
Well, I paint faces! And bodies! ...not with paint. Paint is not meant for skin. I paint with makeup. That’s right! While face and body painting is certainly not a new art form, the level and expertise of the work that is being produced has grown by leaps and bounds, even since my 10 years. So I take time to train every year to keep up with the best, latest and greatest makeup, brushes, and techniques.
So what do I use?
My tools are paint brush and sponge or airbrush. I use several different brands of water based cosmetics and *paint* the makeup onto the skin. See how this art form got its name?
I use only professional makeup, all of which have been made especially for the face painting industry, have a child safety rating and are non toxic. Every pot of makeup, ink, glitter, or glue that I use, is 100% safe for use on the skin. Why? Because I want face painting to be a memorable experience for you, your child, and your guests, a happy time for everyone! When I am done, I want to watch each guest look in the mirror and hear the inevitable ‘WOW’! Thatís how I chose the name of my company!!!
Where do I go?
I don’t have a shop or studio (yet!) but I will happily go to you! Birthday parties, Bar Mitzvahs, Bat Mitzvahs, Grand Openings, Restaurant Family Nights, Book Signings, Promotions, High School Proms and Lock-Downs, Corporate Events, Fairs, Festivals, Sporting Events, Summer Camps, Movies, Commercials, Videos, etc.
