Here’s a list of body paint and body paint techniques I’ve used :D (a lot of the pictures are face, but I’ve done full body with all these makeup)
Ben Nye: It’s a grease face paint that comes in a variety of sizes. Application requires a makeup sponge and a bit of effort. Pros- it’s thick so it hides imperfections and you can also apply color using only eyeshadow. It allows other things to stick to it. Cons- It would take absolutely forever to apply and tends to rub off on clothes a bit more.

Kryolan Aquacolor- This is my personal favorite. It’s a water activated makeup that you brush on. It comes in a cake of various sizes and you dab a little bit of water to the cake and brush it on using a foundation brush. Pros- It looks like natural skin and doesn’t clog, is quick to apply and doesn’t rub off as easy as most body makeup. Cons- If you haven’t painted before, it can be a bit difficult and leave streaks on the skin. I suggest a lot of practice to get the feel for it.

Paradise: It’s same exact thing as Aqua color however, it smells like coconuts! Pros- it’s a bit thicker than aquacolor so it’s good for people just starting out with bodypaint. It’s the less likely of all the makeup to rub off on clothes Cons- Since it’s so durable, it’s REALLY hard to wash off sometimes, so scrub really well.
(Domino from Marvel’s Deadpool makeup by me )
Airbrush: Comes in a liquid foundation that you apply using a small compressor and airbrush kit. They make sets just for makeup. Pros- it’s professional grade 100% amazing. It’s smooth, natural and you can blend with ease. Cons- it’s REALLY pricey, so be willing to spend over $100 just for the compressor and kit.
(this is actually not makeup, this just normal airbrush paint on a bodysuit, but it allows you to get the feel for the technique type. This is a Zora from Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess cosplayed by my best friend FishyBob)
Acrylic Paint and Baby Lotion: Only use this technique if you are in an absolute emergency. You apply half lotion and half acrylic paint and brush it on like paint. Pros- SUPER cheap, fast and easy to apply. Cons- it rubs off over time and can sweat off easy and can crinkle if you have too much paint in the solution.
