Festival Face Gems by Asheville Face Painter Sarah Jordan

Festival Face Gems by Asheville Face Painter Sarah Jordan

This is Sarah, aka the Asheville Face Painter, and today I’m sharing my freehand festival face gems look.

I actually created this look to practice for a corporate event where I’ll be “bedazzling” Verizon employees from all over the country the Omni Grove Park Inn.

I was going for ‘cat ears’ above my eyebrows and a lotus flower on my third eye area.

Why did I do this to my face? I’m super excited for next month’s Masquerade Ball at the Omni Grove Park Inn where I was hired as part of their corporate event entertainment. I’ll apply gemstones to people’s faces as part of their masquerade costumes.

What I love about these gems is that they really catch the sunlight (any light for that matter) and reflect it back at you. Check out this unedited photo:

Here I am in my dark, cave-like house…and the gems are still super bright.

I applied my face gems with this latex-free eyelash glue.

Update: The Verizon employees at the corporate event at the Omni Grove Park Inn loved getting bedazzled! Here’s a photo of them enjoying their gems:

Painting in the abstract style is super relaxing. It will put you right in the zone and make you feel totally relaxed and energized all at once. Psychologists call this the FLOW state.

By the way, you can totally tag me in any of your paintings you create with my tutorials on Instagram right here.

I’ve been busy face painting around Asheville and I still made time to add some really cute spirit animal tote bags to my Etsy shop.

I know crystals aren’t technically animals but this is one of my favorite bags so far. Let me know what you think…

Owl Spirit Animal Message and Stink Bug

Owl Spirit Animal Message and Stink Bug

Last week I heard owls hooting outside. Then I heard that my Aunt Kathy passed away. She was really fond of owls and collected them. I was taking photos of my owl painting here when I found out about her passing. I felt like it was her saying hello to me.

Owl Spirit Animal Message

As a spirit animal, owls use keen eyesight to hunt at night. The owl wants YOU to be on the lookout for signs and clues and synchronicity. The owl sends messages via visual images like dreams and in meditation.

Speaking of synchronicity, I’m working on creating my Uplifting Animals Oracle deck. I painted a Stink Bug and experienced Stink-chronicity! There was an actual stink bug next to my stink bug oracle card painting 🐞 the meaning: look for the gift in every situation, even ones that “stink”…

So I just got home from my Aunt’s funeral in NJ…and even though I’ve been busy playing catch up, I’m booking face painting and glitter tattoo parties around Asheville out the wazoo. I’m so grateful!

Here’s what some of my face painting clients around Asheville said about hiring me:

“Sarah was a the highlight of my 4 year old’s birthday party! All the kids were so excited and she was extremely patient and sweet with the hyper crew!”- Brooke Seiden,  Asheville, NC

“Thank you for an amazing job yesterday Sarah!! Your work is incredible and all the kids loved you.” – Lindsay Smoak, Rocky Creek Baptist Church in Greenville, NC

Unicorn Party

Unicorn Party

Happy Monday!

On Sunday I was face painting in Asheville at a Unicorn party. Even some of the parents got in on the face painting fun. One of the Dad’s asked me to paint Prismo from Adventure Time. He’s not a unicorn, obviously 🙂

Here’s some photo from the Unicorn party:

Side note, you can book me here for face painting in Asheville. 

Speaking of unicorns, I wore my custom rainbow unicorn horn (created by Henna True artist Crissy Depina). All the kids at the unicorn party went crazy (in a good way) over it. The horn is tiny but mighty.

On Saturday Chad had his first solo show (in a while) at Odd’s Cafe, so it was an art and music-filled weekend.

What else is on my canvas or plate? I’m creating my own animal oracle deck featuring my artwork. I also have some online painting tutorials in the works.

I finally listed some digital download prints and framed art in my Etsy shop. More coming soon.
