Pure Brilliant Events
Pure Brilliant Events was founded by Bex, who is wonderfully friendly, organised and absolutely fantastic with children. Originally from Northern Ireland, she is a trained make-up artist and special effects expert.
Bex began working as a freelance face painter and balloon modeller while still a student. Such was her success and enjoyment of the role, she later recruited a whole team of fun and creative individuals. She has even worked with organisations including the Scottish Parliament, Scottish Gas, Step It Up Dance and Standard Life.
Bex and her team can organise and run events for up to 30 children. There are many excellent packages available, depending on your child’s age and interests.

What age does a child have to be to have their face painted?
We do not paint the face of a child younger than 3. However, we will do a small design on their cheek.
Do the paints and glitter come off easily?
Yes. Use shampoo or a good quality bar of soap for the face paint. You’ll find more detailed instructions here. The glitter will wear off in a week.
Can glitter tattoos be applied to the face?
No. The glue used is specialist body glue, but we apply tattoos to arms and legs only.
What is the upper age-limit for trampolining?
12 years old
You were so patient, friendly, kind and helpful with every single one of the children (and their parents). Absolutely nothing was a problem or challenge for you.
Our son and every other kid had an amazing day at his party today and most of this was thanks to Bex at Pure Brilliant Events. Fantastic balloon modelling and face painting. I would recommend this to anyone throwing a party for their kids.
We were absolutely delighted with our dinosaur themed balloons for a 3rd birthday. Bex really went above and beyond and they looked incredible. Very flexible and impressive service, highly recommended!
Bex and her team can also create balloon displays for all age's of birthdays, new home balloons and Christmas celebrations too!
