  • Well to me it depends on how you want to paint it. If it's somethign like wiskers, I would say probably ok. As long as it's safe face paint! But if it's all over, I would say no.

  • I don't see the harm in it. If it's not going to get in his mouth, nose, or eyes I'd say you're good!

  • I wouldn't, but my daughter has rather sensitive skin. You are properly the best judge of whether you think it will irritate his face.

  • I would paint a small spot on his face and leave it on there for like an hour (or less) to see if it irritates his skin any. If not then have a blast! :)

  • in my opinon, i wouldnt... my reasoning, is that they have such delicate skin, even if the makeup is non toxic etc, you just never know, and plus he had baby acne and i just wouldnt want anything to get in the pores. Plus, i would hate to have to fight him later with a wash clothe to get the makeup off..

  • Go for it! It's your child, you do what you want! As long as he's not going to get it in his mouth he should be fine. Have fun!
