What a fun evening! I set up outside The Roundabout for a 5pm start. There were great bands all night and a superb atmosphere.
I had an instant queue. Initially they were unsure as I had provided no word boards or displays. However, it wasn't long before I got suggestions of,
"something blue and pretty"
"mandala like around my eye"
This is great because I get to have fun with different designs and challenges and the students get something different. This year’s freshers is extra special because it consists of year 1 and 2. Finally those who started last year get the 'starting uni' experience albeit a year in. This makes me and judging by the smiles them happy.
I only managed a few photos so as always if you are reading this and have some pics, please send them over. I'd love to see them.
Thank you to all at the Roundabout for getting involved and being my customers. If I don't see you before I'll catch you all next year.

About the author
Face painter (Standrard and UV Glow)
Baby bump painting
Hair wraps / braids
I have been face painting and creating smiles with my hair braids, tattoos and body paints for over 15 years after finally taking the jump and becoming self employed in 2006. Having a large network of friends I have been able to establish a network of quality face painters and glitter tattoo artists who have a passion for the job which shows in their work throughout the South & South West of England. Orginating from a customer service & sales background the best thing I ever did was become self employed. The money might not be as good but the job satisfaction seeing lots of happy smiles is the best. I hope to continue for many more years to come.
