Dark Link Makeup?

Hey all,

So I'm getting close to finalizing my Dark Link cosplay. I know a lot of people go for either completely black or very pale for the makeup. I was hoping to go for a dark grey like this:

My roommates recommended a creme makeup, but I was hoping to avoid that simply because I don't feel like breaking out for a month afterwards. Does anyone know of any good makeup that will work for that?
Costume Progress:
Dark Link - 99.99%
Daedric Armor - 20%

Cons attending -

Cake makeup. It's water-based. You can make it more opaque by layering, or adding less water. Here's the first part of a tutorial on how to use it, and how it looks. Most people recommend Ben Nye, but Mehron and Kryolan also do cake makeup.
Make sure you allow it to dry, and set with translucent setting powder. You can also spritz your face with setting spray. Good luck!
