Dawn Cuthbertson is an experienced professional face-painter, based in Glasgow and available for work throughout Scotland and the UK .


She is an Equity member, fully insured and Disclosure Scotland checked and a member of FACE, the face painting association, which sets standards throughout the industry.

Dawn is the only Scottish face painter to hold Advanced Certification from the International Face Painting Association and recently picked up second place in the coveted "Face Painter of the Year" competition at the Association's Annual Conference. There is simply no better face painter in Scotland.

She is available for children's parties, nurseries and schools, fetes, galas and fun days, weddings, christenings and communion parties, corporate events, promotions and sporting events.

She also provides face painting and temporary glitter tattoos for adult events “ e.g. stag and hen parties, pubs, clubs and themed events. She is happy to travel and has been face painting for ten years and has worked extensively throughout Scotland and the UK, from as far south as Portsmouth to Aberdeen in the north, not forgetting Dublin in Ireland.


Our managing director has two daughters and books Dawn for their birthday parties - you can't get a better endorsement than that.

Glitter Tattoos

Glitter tattoos are available in a huge range of designs and colours [including UV-active colours]. They are long lasting, waterproof and smudge-proof and a great alternative to face painting at events like weddings where parents may worry about the transfer of face paint onto clothing.

They are fast to apply and use skin-safe latex adhesive and high grade cosmetic quality polyester glitters. A tattoo may last for between 3 and 5 days on the skin, depending on the area to which it is applied [friction from clothing will remove the tattoo faster than if it is on uncovered skin], but they can be easily removed if required by gentle rubbing with a little baby oil on cotton wool or in the bath or shower.

Popular with kids , teens and adults, male and female. For corporate events/ sports events etc it is possible to get a company logo/ club badge or similar cut as a tattoo stencil so that visitors can be tattooed with the logo.
