If you don't want to shop with one of us on line body paint and FX makeup shops, your best bet is to seek out as mentioned a costume shop. Not the national party stores but a real costume rental shop that sells theatrical makeup.

Some Micheals do stock Snazaroo but Snaz does not make skintones only colorful FX colors. And Snaz is the least pigmented, has the highest glycerin base than any of the widely used and sold face and body painting makeups. Meaning colors fade and smudge and rub off more easily that other formulations.

If you want skin tones look to Mehron, Kryolan, Graftobian or Ben Nye, or Wolfe (mostly found online). Fix any of these with a fixing spray (not setting powder) if you need more durability.

I have to say in looking at this character you may simply be able to achieve the color you want by using a drug store brand foundation like OLoreal or such. Worth a trip to see the color range available to you at your local drug and makeup stores.
