Cutie Face & Friends: maybe the best face painting in Roscoe


Rose Rubio Salinas: Cutie Face & Friends

Meet Rose Rubio Salinas - an artist, art educator, singer/songwriter, and the creative force behind Cutie Face and Friends, a popular face-painting and entertainment service that has become a hit among both children and adults alike.

It all started back in 2014 when Rose decided to volunteer at church events, showcasing her talent for face painting. What began as a small endeavor quickly gained popularity, and she soon found herself being asked to paint at birthday parties. However, it was an encounter in 2015 that would change the course of her volunteering career.

Approached by someone who needed a singer to dress up as Pocahontas for a fundraiser benefiting a young boy about to undergo open heart surgery, Rose was hesitant at first. It had been years since she last sang, and the thought of putting on a costume of Pocahontas seemed daunting. Nevertheless, she promised to explore the possibilities.

Fate seemed to be on her side when during a casual neighborhood garage sale, Rose stumbled upon a table with a Pocahontas wig, necklace, and dress all in her size. And if that wasn't enough, it was all listed for only $3. Rose took it as a sign and seized the opportunity, becoming the singing Pocahontas at the fundraiser. Little did she know that this moment would be the moment that determined her future success.

With her newfound confidence and the outpouring of positive feedback she received, Rose decided to transform her passion into a business. Thus, Cutie Face and Friends was born. The business specializes in face painting, but Rose's love for the arts doesn't stop there. She also trains young people in various forms of entertainment, including theater and balloon twisting, fostering their creativity and involvement in the community.

Rose's engaging characters have become familiar faces in local theaters, further solidifying her reputation as a talented artist and entertainer. Despite juggling her business with her full-time teaching job, Jane has managed to build a loyal clientele, and her face-painting service has become a sought-after attraction in town. 

While Cutie Face and Friends has gained recognition for its exceptional service, Rose remains humble about her achievements. With a perfect rating of 5.0 stars from her 21 reviews, she understands that some customers, especially celebrities she has worked with, prefer to keep their experiences private. Regardless, she prides herself on delivering quality and excellent service, evident from the number of returning customers she continues to serve.

Looking ahead, Rose is excited about the future of her business. With plans to devote more time to Cutie Face and Friends, she envisions new ventures on the horizon, including potential partnerships that could take her business to greater heights. Rose's commitment to giving back to the community remains unwavering, as she has previously volunteered for notable causes such as Gigi's Playhouse, Rock House Kids, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Cutie Face and Friends has outstanding reviews of happy parents. After hiring their service and seeing their children so happy, they recommend the business for other children's parties. On their Facebook page, people write:

"The princesses were a great asset to the party! The face painting is top notch! I will definitely recommend and use them again!" -Mel Vil

We had a princess party for my 8 year old daughter and she said "Mom, they look so real!" They were super easy going and fun! Face painting was awesome as well. -Stephanie Burfield

As Rose's journey from a humble volunteer to a successful business owner continues, she serves as an inspiration to those who dare to follow their passions and make a positive impact in their communities.  She says, "I feel Cutie Face and Friends stands as a testament to the power of pursuing what you love and spreading joy to others."
