Illuminated faces is hands down the best in the business. Tommi made our son’s birthday block party a huge success with her unbelievable face painting and balloon making skills. Can’t wait to hire them again!

Tommi did a Great job entertaining both the adults and the children at my daughter’s 6th bday party. The face painting was so stunning the girls kept running back to look at themselves in the mirror. We got the bigger balloon package and it was levels beyond what we imagined. She was also very fast which the parents appreciate. My daughters obsessed with unicorns and Tommi made her a Giant unicorn that she wore the practically the whole party. Really fun!

I booked Illuminated Faces Nyc Face Painting & Balloon Art for my daughter's 3rd birthday party and it was a hit. She arrived early and set up so that my guests were able to get the full amount of time I paid for. The kids loved her since she's not like other face painters, she takes her time and has great detail when it comes to face painting. She also had henna, which was a hit for the older crowdadults at my daughter's party also. I would totally recommend her for occasions :) great price too!

After scouring the internet I was really excited to find this company. It’s a bit scary inviting someone into our home for our child’s birthday so I did A Lot of research and it paid off!!!! Our artist was 100% professional and blew us away with her talent and energy. You really get what you pay for. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for kids entertainment, although I think the adults had even more fun. The whole process was very easy and the party was just terrific. We’ve already invited her back for next year!

Stephanie was wonderful!!! She found us even though the directions were a bit vague as we were hosting our daughter’s 4th birthday party in a park, and she was very sweet and patient with all the kids (mainly toddlers), making sure that each one got hisher face done beautifully. I would recommend her highly to anyone looking for a face painter at any kind of party, kids’ or adults! She is beyond nextlevel and comes with a palate of colors and skillset that is up for any request or challenge you can throw at her!

We've had Lenore of Illuminated Faces at our annual block party two years in a row. She's an amazing artist and takes wonderful care of the kids. She's one of the key highlights of our party and we are always happy with her work!

Tommi and the Illuminated Faces family are nothing short of extraordinary! She is gifted in her craft and a true delight to work with. Tommi brings smiles to so many faces. I can’t imagine a party without her!

We had an artist from Illuminated Faces do face painting for our daughter's birthday party and the artistry was out of this world. I highly recommend and would definitely use them again.

Highly recommend to anyone looking for a great activity for their child's party. Our artist was on time, professional, and amazing at handling the 20 kids (aged 2 to 6) at my son's birthday. It couldn't have gone more smoothly and the kids were thrilled. From my first email to the end of our party, everyone here was a pleasure to work with!
