Colombian people like to get disguised a lot. One example of this is Halloween. On that day, children get their faces painted to complement their costumes. They usually get their faces painted as clowns with many brilliant colors.

On that night, adults who usually have parties at night get their faces painted by stylists. They get butterflies and masks painted on their faces and usually have their hair dyed blue, green, or orange, too.
