BODYFX specializes in products that meet the needs of performers, make-up artists, body painters, costume-party-attendees, schools, tv & film production, and everyone in between. We cater to professionals and beginners, alike. In addition to carrying all the tools you need to achieve spectacular looks, we offer a range of other services. You can book our artists for unique, one-off looks, you can book our workshops to improve your own skills as a face painter, you can purchase subscriptions to our online classes, and you can always rely on our staff to offer insights into how to best use projects to achieve exactly what you want to create.
We are the only “brick and mortar” FX and face paint shop in New Zealand. In addition to carrying our own brands of face paint, cosmetics and makeup tools, we have a curated selection of products from the most sought after brands in the industry: Mehron, Kryolan, Ben Nye, Pro Aiir, and much more.
Our shop has a commitment to sustainability, which is reflected in everything from how we package our products to how our products are made. We are well known for our special Good Glitter, which is %100 biodegradable, and made from cellulose derived from Eucalyptus trees.
We recognize that the makeup industry is riddled with products that don’t have the best practices or safest ingredients, so we put extra effort into carrying the most eco-friendly cosmetics and tools possible.
We offer special discounts for schools and face painting professionals, and our brand has had the honor of supporting major productions from Ru Paul’s Drag Race, to Lord of the Rings. We looks to lift up our local, New Zealand performers every chance we get, which includes sponsoring variety shows around the country and creating bespoke, FX pieces on request. Our unique rewards program also offers customers points with every purchase, and makes it extremely easy for our customers to cash in their accrued points. At BODYFX, our mantra is to “surprise and delight” our customer community, and all that we do keeps those values in mind.
