I have always had a fascination with Art. I completed a full-time 2 year design and decorative arts course at St Martins Art College in Central London many years ago.
Developing Sparkles Face Painting has been a fun and consuming interest. I am an artist and love the whole creativity of art and face painting, especially the striking colour mixes and the effects that can be achieved. It’s great to be a part of people’s parties and events, knowing that the children’s face painting (and often the Mum’s and Dad’s) made it a memorable occasion.
Sparkles Face Painting has been booked for thousands of children’s parties in South London, Kent, Sussex and Surrey since 2004. We have also been booked by companies for promotions and corporate events. A few of the memorable ones were the BBC, ‘CBeebies’, The House of Commons children’s Christmas party, Buckingham Palace events, ‘Bridget Jones Baby’ filming in Windsor Great Park, Liberty Regent Street, Candy Crush Saga – King London. Excel Centre, IKEA, Courtauld Institute of Art and Kuwait City, where the most popular requests were for butterflies and Spiderman!
Carol is currently resident facepainter at Hever Castle on special events weekends. Check the Hever Castle website for event listings.
It would seem children like the same designs wherever we are face painting in the world. Such fun we are all having!

“A massive THANK YOU for the face painting at our wedding, it was a huge success with children and adults alike. You probably could have stayed until the end of the evening and not have been short of painting to do!
Lots of people have commented to me how friendly you were. You really helped to make our day Extra special, Thank You once again”
“Just to say thank you for making Lauren and Matthew’s party so special. When I first saw your work I knew immediately that I had to have you at my children’s party.
Not only are you a great artist but your calm and friendly approach to your work seemed to work wonders with the young children – You really are a true professional.”
“Thank you so much for your wonderful work yesterday, the children (and adults!) really enjoyed your painting, and everyone commented on how beautiful and striking your work is! I particularly appreciated your no fuss, easy-to-work-with attitude, it was a great help to me on such a busy day.
I will absolutely be recommending you to anyone who enquires about face painting, and we will definitely be in touch next year!”
“Just wanted to say again a huge thank you for your time this weekend – we absolutely loved the face and body art which really did bring our marine-themed stand to life! We also signed up over 70 new MCS members which is brilliant!
We may have some future events planned which could be improved with some sparkles!!”

“I just wanted to say thank you so much for Saturday, the face/body painting went down a storm and everyone was talking about how utterly brilliant you are! Thank you again.
I am sure I will be calling upon your skills for future parties for the girls, or maybe even an adult one!”
“Thank you, Carol It was a fantastic course – not just the tips for how to get great effects, but information on suppliers, health & safety”
“I cannot thank you enough for the most amazing morning spent with you at the face painting class. I can’t stop looking at the photos taken. You really are so amazingly talented in your art, but also in the manner with which you share your information.
You patiently and clearly explained all your tricks of the trade and as a result I feel incredibly inspired this evening! I am blown away!”
“I wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you for your art work today, calling it face painting just doesn’t do it justice at all. Everyone big and small were not only amazed but truly delighted with every single design you did today! I can’t even tell you how much you were a part of Chè’s party, you felt more like a friend doing face painting than someone doing us a service!!
Again thank you so much your are truly gifted.”
“Carol you are professional, artistic, enthusiastic and fantastic with the children. We would highly recommend you over and over again. Thanks, you made our little girls Easter egg hunt go with a swing!”
