Funtastik Faces by Rasiha Kavaklidere
Creative Face & Body painting artist.
I Use professional products which are tested and approved by FDA and EU regulations. My paints are water based and hypo-allergenic and I use a selection of cosmetic grade brushes and sponges to apply the paint on to the skin. I use various techniques to build a design and to create the "Wow factor" with my unique brush strokes.
Body painting is a whole different level of creativity.
Whether its just a casual body painting for a professional photoshoot, or taken part at a prestigious exhibition or a competition, Body painting is a whole different level of creativity from head to toe. This kind of work takes a lot of time to plan, prep and design on a live model. It maybe hard work but its very rewarding.

MIXING HENNA- I Mix my own fresh Henna paste using 100% Natural Henna powder from Rajhastan by only adding natural lemon juice and mixing with natural essential oils such as; Tea tree, Eucalyptus, Lavender. Once Henna is applied on the skin it takes 48hrs for the stain to develop turning from a bright orange colour to a very rich brown. Henna stains last approximately 10-14 days, The longer you leave it on the better it stains.
ALLERGIES- Henna is a natural plant which normally grows in Saudi Arabia. the plants are then grinded down with the plants and pant twigs and turned into a powder form. It is what you add into Henna that causes any allergic reaction to the skin for eg; some people can have a reaction to essential oils please always check before any henna application a quick patch test can be carried out.
Black Henna is not a natural ingredients but is made adding chemicals to henna that can cause a severe action to skin. Applying Black Henna is more likely to cause severe reaction skin and can leave permanent skin damages!
