The ultimate dress-up day of the year is almost here. While most people think of Halloween as a kid’s holiday, adults can be very serious about their costumes too. But dress up isn’t only for once a year as the popularity of Cosplay has demonstrated. Adults go to great lengths to perfect their dress up. Certainly, rhinestone face art can be the final touch to authenticate the look.
Perhaps you’ve seen false eyelashes with rhinestones on them. These have been available for quite some time and the wearer applies them the same as regular false eyelashes. Each and every time the wearer blinks, the rhinestones send out sparkle. Imagine larger rhinestones or shaped rhinestones enhancing your face with a dazzling array of colors.
Moreover, crystalized body art opens up new possibilities. While the most common site for rhinestones is the face, you can apply crystal to any part of the body. Wearing a sleeveless dress? You can apply rhinestones design on your arms. Add rhinestones to accentuate your tattoo. Or apply a rhinestone tattoo. There are no fashion rules when using rhinestones.
Adhesives for Adhering Rhinestones to Your Body
Gluing rhinestones to your body presents a different scenario than gluing to clothing. First, you want to use an adhesive that isn’t permanent and is safe to use on your skin. Plus, you’ll want a glue that won’t irritate your skin, especially if yours is sensitive.
Some artists used medical glue, spirit gum, or eyelash glue. Another alternative is body glue. Professional dancers often use body glue to keep their costumes in place when performing. This same glue is great for crystallized body art. Relatively inexpensive and easy to find, many body glues will provide a strong hold for 8-10 hours.
Some body glues are water soluble and wash off easily. While others are water resistant and require baby oil or alcohol to remove. Be sure to check your manufacturer’s guidelines before use.
Rhinestone Face Art – Where to Buy Crystals
Prismatic crystal, glass, or acrylic rhinestones are all suitable choices for rhinestones face art. Quality and price are the considerations when choosing your embellishment. Brand names like Swarovski or Preciosa are the top of the line rhinestones and hence more expensive. Your budget and the event will help you to decide on the type of rhinestone you want.
