Looking for Make-up Design for Theatre, Dance Performances, Art or Commercial Photography, Promotions/Receptions, Halloween Parties, or other specialty make-up?
Second Look can make it happen.
Fast-paced, imaginative fun for children and the young at heart, using only safe, professional water-based theatrical make-ups that are never tested on animals and come off easily with soap and water.Second Look Face Painting in New Jersey has a team of face painting artists, each with an extensive background in the arts, including years of experience working in theatre. All were specifically recruited and trained by Erin, who continuously develops their talents in all areas of make-up artistry. No "spray painting" through plastic stencils here, Erin and her team are real artists making real works of art, one face at a time.
When shopping for a face painter, there are some important questions to ask...
Is the person you are hiring the one that painted the images shown on the company's website? You might be surprised! Some companies post the work of others and pretend it represents what they can do, but frankly, if they were capable of creating quality work themselves, why would they steal? Erin has found her own photos stolen and re-posted on the websites of unscrupulous companies. Many of Second Look's clients have told stories about hiring other companies who have actually sent out people with little or no talent, or even children to do the work! Every photo here shows the original design work of Erin Penney and was rendered by her or another member of the Second Look Face Painting team of artists. You will know exactly what and who you get when you hire Second Look. And if you see our copyrighted photos or designs elsewhere, please let us know.
ALWAYS ASK what kind of paint a face painter uses. The "non-toxic" label is not enough -- common art store craft paints, permanent markers, and even some house paints are labeled "non-toxic" but are NOT safe to use as a cosmetic! Second Look Face Painting uses the highest quality professional theatrical make-ups in the world -- water-based face paints made under the strict guidelines of US FDA and European Union regulations and packed according to rules enforced in the USA and EU to ensure safety. They are also not tested on animals. Unfortunately, there are both volunteers and so-called "professionals" out there using acrylic craft paints and other non-cosmetic materials on children's faces. Erin and her team artists have seen first-hand the allergic reactions such careless decisions can create.
How do the face paints temp tattoos come off? Soap and water does the trick for top-quality, professional face paints. Baby wipes also work, and are especially convenient for removing designs featuring special cosmetic grade polyester glitter. If desired, Second Look's waterproof hand-rendered cosmetic "black tribal tattoos" and faux hennas designs can be immediately removed with alcohol or baby oil, but otherwise last up to a week. Glitter tattoos are also waterproof, last a few days, and come off with alcohol or baby oil.

The Artistry and Value of Second Look Face Painting is Second to None!
Erin's extensive background in the entertainment industry and as an artist in various media, including theatrical make-up design, was in place before being trained by Disney's face painting company in this unique form of make-up artistry. Painting thousands of theme park visitors honed Erin's speed, precision, and technique. By replicating her employer's designs created by the rock stars of face painting, the legendary Wolfe Brothers, Erin rehearsed the work of the masters in the demanding environment of a major theme park.
She has advanced her skills through studies with world famous face and body artist, Pashur House, and five-time Emmy Award winning New York make-up artist Eve Pearl. Foundation studies include a mater's degree in Electronic Media earned on full scholarship for Visual Communications from Drake University. Major undergraduate coursework includes studies at New York's School of Visual Arts, and in the Theatre Arts Production and Design Program of the School of Visual and Performing Arts, C.W. Post College, Long Island University.
Erin's skills as an artist and designer are rooted in fortunate genetics, as the daughter of a graduate of Moore College of Art and Design in Philadelphia. After working as a commercial artist, Erin's mom, also an an award-winning artist, became a fine arts educator who taught at all levels from kindergarten to college to adult school, and chaired the Fine and Performing Arts Department at The Hun School of Princeton. In addition to four years of sequential Studio Art training at Hun, Erin's teen summers were filled with specialized visual and performing arts training at the Tomato Patch Workshops at Mercer County Community College. Her talents have been put to use professionally in a number of creative ways over the years, from creating illustrations for children's books, to designing props and make-up for professional theatrical productions.
