Visit to Superstar in Amsterdam!

Superstar paint is becoming a new brand to the UK where The Face Painting Shop introduced me to the range and the brand is now only distributed in the UK by them and I am proud to say Superstar are now my official Sponsor for my make-up jobs when I need to use the paints. Superstar is manufactured in Holland – Oosterhout where I was lucky enough to be invited to the factory with The Face Painting Shop yesterday to meet the owner Marco Van Leenep. It was a chance to learn more about the brand, meet the people behind the brand and to see how Superstar paints are made- which like when I went to Kryolan’s factory last year I was truly fascinated of the effort goes into making these paints.

 

I have been using face paints since I started make-up and they are great for creative make-up and even beauty make-up too! I have had lots of years working with face paints now and I have finally mastered how to get the right consistency when using them for body painting work all the way to beauty work. If you haven’t tried water/cream Superstar paints before I suggest buying a few primary colours and experimenting. I have even used the paints to create some of my lip art looks!

Superstar actually started out as a bakery in the 1920s then after the Second World War the company decided to produce Make-up! Superstar’s oldest employee is 71years old with the rest of the staff working there for over 18 years + This was very obvious in the work space with an amazing family business atmosphere, you could feel the passion behind their work towards the brand just by meeting and seeing them work and in my eyes this helps to make the brand who they are and to keep up a high standard. We got told by some of the staff they can make up to 1500 + Superstar paints between two of them in a day… And yes all handmade! Madness.

Superstar is a fantastic paint that is so gentle on the skin, is great in the heat, and comes in a variety of vibrant colours and a great price to match too! Superstar also sell their own eyelashes, contact lenses, false nails and fake facial hair which we watched them making wigs.

 

I feel more of a connection towards Superstar now and I am really grateful and appreciate the opportunities I have with such wonderful brands like this experience. A huge thank you to Marco from Superstar and Nat at The face Painting Shop for this wonderful inspiring day.  Superstar products can be purchased from www.thefacepaintingshop.com
