UV Makeup and Blacklight Special Effects


We use UV makeups to create special effects under backlight for parties and events, and to add dayglo “pop” to our face and body painting. Special effects paintings range from fully painted glowing models, 60s style Go-Go Dancers and specialty bodypainting for clubs and evening events.

Working with UV makeups is like painting with light. We’ve used these effects for theme events ranging from “Under the Sea” Bar Mitzvahs to Woodstock themed corporate events. We’ve painted participants for Laser-Tag nights at colleges and created a Live Action Blacklight bodypainting stage performance as entertainment for conventions.

Christopher Agostino is recognized for his facility with UV makeups and has developed special techniques that allow him to create designs that work well under regular light as well as blacklight, which is especially useful for clubs and events where only part of a venue is under blacklight. His appearances for the Kryolan Professional Makeup company often include demonstrations of their UV Aquacolor makeups, widely considered the best UV product on the market.
