Makeup of the Week – European Body Art
Posted on 13 January 2016
This week’s Makeup of the Week is the featured brand, European Body Art.
EBA operates out of a company-owned, state-of-the-art facility in Costa Mesa, CA, and has been in the business since 2002, providing performance-based makeup products to the body art, beauty, body painting, and special effects industries. EBA houses an R&D department, laboratory, warehouse, manufacturing facility, showroom, training room, and offices. All of their products are designed, tested, formulated, and manufactured in-house giving you consistent, high quality products. You can often catch them at various conventions throughout the year showcasing fantastic demos at their booth.
EBA strictly and proudly complies with FDA regulations implementing the highest safety measurements. All of their pigments used are cosmetic grade, free of any harsh chemicals that may irritate the skin. If you have sensitive skin however, please do a small patch test before applying all over the body as well as use a skin barrier like Kryolan’s barrier foam before application.
Arda proudly carries both their Endura and Vibe line, as well as their removers and thinners that were hand-picked at EBA’s warehouse facility. EBA manufactures products with a lot of pigment, meaning the color may settle on the bottom of the bottle so shake vigorously before each use. If you want a more transparent effect, you can also mix Transluz into a separate cup before application. This may also make it easier for the color to flow through your airbrush. While designed for an airbrush system, because of the pigmentation, EBA can also be used to hand paint any designs on the body. Since their products are formulated to be long-lasting, we recommend you use a strong yet gentle remover like their Unveil or Vapore to remove the color off your skin. Also, EBA’s formulation contains some fragrance in all of their products so please be aware of any scent sensitivities before purchasing.
