Whether it’s for Halloween, a school play or just play time at home, avoid the temptation to use face paints that you find at costume supply stores. Many face paints are full of toxic chemicals like lead, arsenic and mercury, and are incredibly unhealthy for anyone to wear. You can make your own right at home: Just add a little water to cornstarch and mix to face-paint consistency, then mix in a few drops of all-natural food coloring. Stir and apply for the perfect food-grade face paint!
