As the official body painters for Vodafone’s Sydney Launch of the Samsung Galaxy SIII last month, Skincognito joined forces with Good Charlotte’s Joel Madden and bodypainted identical twin models to promote the new phone in front of a media frenzy! We then bodypainted models for the media in a live shop window performance on Sydney’s busy Pitt Street.

Our work was featured on several TV networks and in 7 newspapers that same day. Our designs were also featured in Who Magazine and on the websites of over 30 organisations, including Today FM, Triple M, MX, Grazia, Cosmo, PopSugar and many more. A great media success for our client, and a wonderful achievement for Skincognito Body Painting (known then as Making Faces).

Julie Tattam, owner of Making Faces, spent a month in Kenya in September, face painting over 300 abandoned and orphaned children in AIDS Orphanages throughout Nairobi. She also trained the Orphanage Staff to face paint so that they could continue the fun after she left. View a small video clip of her tour here.
