I'm looking for a place (online or off) that sells tiny jewels that are used to place on your face or make body art^_^ I've seen these around but never actively tried to find them myself ^^; If anyone has any information on where I can find some or any tips or tricks, it would be hugely appreciated^_^
Thanks so much!

If you go to Michael's, Hobby Lobby, JoAnne's, or any similar craft store, you'll find lots of little jewels in all sorts of colors, shapes, and sizes. The craft department at Walmart is also a good resource, especially if you're on a budget. You can use spirit gum (available at costume stores, especially around Halloween) or eyelash glue (available in any makeup department) to apply them. This way you're not limited to jewels that are pre-stuck.
Real Swarovski rhinestones are not that expensive. They come in "SS" sizes. For example SS10 means 2.8mm diameter, and SS12 is 3mm.
I'm enclosing pics of Swarovski flatbacks in chrystal color. Just to have an idea, I could supply them starting from about 10cents $Canadian each. Different sizes and colors have different prices, of course.
There are several skin adhesives that could be used to keep them in place, as prosthetics.
Hope this helps...

You can buy them in arts and crafts stores.

My dance company uses gems and eyelash glue from CVS. They look cool and stay on pretty well.

you could try online bindi shops
Bindi for all!
Oh, and get yourself some spirit gum and spirit gum remover.

Any flatback rhinestone would suffice. You can find a limited selection at Lewiscraft, and more variety at Michael's.
And eyelash glue is probably less cumbersome than dealing with spirit gum and remover (and potentially cheaper and easier to find too...)
