F.A.Q. Things you want or need to know.

Read carefully

  • You should never have a 'puddle' of water in your cake.
  • Do not apply to irritated skin.
  • Our make-up has a little preservatives in it to kill bacteria, mold and yeast, but is not designed to be 'submerged' in water for extended lengths of time.
  • Cracks may form in the cakes.

    These cracks have no effect on the makeup, it is simply the paraffin wax in the makeup expanding and contracting.

  • Like all makeup, some darker colors, on some people, may temporary leave a bit of residue on the skin for a few hours after washing.
  • This depends on how long the makeup is worn and what pigments the paint contains. We are aware that the green colors as in most make up, is harder to remove!
  • Our neons glow vividly under a blacklight. (liquid only) Colors can be layered or blended on top of each other.
  • When working with a sponge, if you can squeeze water out of your sponge, you have too much water in it!
  • Try dabbing out the excess water on a dry paper towel.
  • Also, containing the water to the very edge of the sponge prevents the makeup from working its way up into the sponge, so it can't dirty your hands

The typical, white, triangle wedge makeup sponges DO NOT work with our makeup. They are for creams and oil based makeup. Try our Makeup Sponges!

  • Cameleon Makeup is ready to go and work. There is no need to add anything to it.
  • Compared to most makeup, this makeup dries faster, is harder to smear, and holds detail and color longer than most water activated makeup
  • Cameleon makeup, like all water activated makeup is not water proof! .
  • Cameleon Makeup has no SPF value and in fact, the black and other dark colors, can amplify UV rays.
  • Apply generous sunscreen, before painting, if you plan to be out doors for a long period of time
  • IMPORTANT: Sunscreen will effect the properties of the makeup - Allow enough time for sunscreen to absorb
  • Try our Makeup Sponges! Stipple colors evenly to achieve a smoother blend.
  • To do subtle shading, do not rewet your sponge
  • Do not leave sponges or brushes in the cakes!
  • Thoroughly wash all sponges and brushes when done.
  • To keep your brushes looking nice and clean, cleaning them with good quality Brush Cleaner and Preserver, we advise Cameleon soap
  • To remove Cameleon makeup, use Cameleon soap and water.
  • The FDA recommends that "Don't decorate your face with things that aren't intended for your skin.
  • Some face paint or other makeup may say on the label that it is not for use near the eyes.
  • Believe this, even if the label has a picture of people wearing it near their eyes.
  • Be careful to keep makeup from getting into your eyes.
  • Even products intended for use near your eyes can sometimes irritate your skin if you use too much.
  • If you're decorating your skin with something you've never used before, you might try a dab of it on your arm for a couple of days to check for an allergic reaction BEFORE you put it on your face.
  • This is an especially smart thing to do if you tend to have allergies." By FDA standards, all FDA approved fluorescence (glows in the blacklight) pigments should not be used in the area of the eyes.
