Face Painting Sticks

According to Alison Kontur of each Halloween, we hear warnings to check face paint for ingredients that contain allergens, unapproved colorants and expiration dates. Since it may not always be possible to find the listing of ingredients or expiration (this info is often listed on a disposable outer wrapper), we like to make our own so we can not only control the ingredients, but we can verify the safety of the colorants used, especially around the eyes and lips. You can check the approved uses for each certified colorant at the FDA website.

If prefer to make your own then I would recommend trying Alison's recipe Face Painting Sticks which posted on her blog DIY Skincare.
