Great Time Airbrush Face Painting for Purim Carnival in Maryland!

Michelle Heffner

We had a great time is Gaithersburg, MD airbrushing the kids at the Shaare Torah Religious School's Purim Carnival. We did both airbrush face painting and airbrush tattoos and the guests were so sweet and respectful.


Here is what Ken, the VP of Membership & the Purim Carnivals' organizer had to say about our services:

"Thanks again for yesterday... everyone loved it! You guys were awesome...heard of a lot of compliments!!!"

Our Columbia, MD Client Yelp'ed us!

Oh what a lovely surprise!

Our lovely client Amanda posted a surprise review for us on We are so happy and excited about that.

In the past, Yelp has not allowed our clients' reviews to show. We think Amanda's made it through because she already had an account there and she had reviewed other establishments. They are very picky about reviews and reviewers.

Yay! Here it is in all it's lovely glory: Yelp Reviews for Bright & Shining Face Painting

Thanks, Amanda!

"I hired Michelle to do face painting and balloons at Chickfila for my son's birthday party.  I had to get approval from Chickfila to bring her in but they were ok with it since we didn't have a huge party.  We had 7 kids and a couple of adults getting their faces painted.  She also does balloons for parties but, in our case, made them ahead of time since they don't give you a huge window of time at a Chickfila party (an hour for the party and 30 minutes for clean up).  I paid Michelle using paypal (easy!) and gave her plenty of info via email on what the kids are into.  My little one is a Yo Gabba Gabba fanatic.  My older boy (and his friends) are crazy about Mario.  She arrived promptly and did a fantastic job painting faces.  After painting was done, she brought in the balloons she had pre-made.  She made a balloon for EVERY single character from Yo Gabba Gabba.  And she made a Mario balloon as well.  Amazingly, all of these balloons really were identical to the characters!  She obviously invested a lot of time looking at images so she could be sure to get it right.  I highly recommend her for entertaining if you're looking for a face painter or balloon maker.  Fantastic job!"

Precious and Touching Face Painting Testimonial from Washington, DC Client

Michelle Heffner

I just loved this intimate little birthday party:

"Hi Michelle,


We had a great time with you yesterday, thanks again for doing such a special job with the kids.  So funny that ALL the girls wanted to be butterflies!  It was wonderful that you were able to create variety amongst all those butterflies, I could see how you really thought about each girl and gave different touches and flourishes to suit their personalities.  But I was most taken by the design you chose for our Lucy girl.  Not sure if my husband explained our situation with Lucy, but she was born with a devastating metabolic disease and she is profoundly disabled... Lucy is in her own little world most days, comfortable and at peace, but very very fragile.  She is the center of our lives and our family, and we feel so lucky that she is comfortable and at home with us.  The winter angel / fairy design was so touching to me - it looked so beautiful on her but it almost enlivened her facial expression a bit (she does not make eye contact or smile...).  I really loved it, so thank you.



The other Moms were really impressed as well.  Everyone kept saying how professional the work looked and I told them that you were the consummate professional throughout.  I was just so impressed by your work.


And thank you again for being such a special part of Audrey's party yesterday.
