Questions from body paint novice

Hello everyone! I'm going to cosplay as Ice queen from adventure time on some cons next year and I wonder:

What's a good brand for fine-quality, airbrush bodypaint? (I'm trying to stay within a not-too big budget so not the most expensive ones)

How much will I need? I'll cosplay as her twice and Ill need to colour face, chest, neck, hands, wrists, feet and ankles.

If I buy the paint not too son, how long will it stay good? Can I use it on a con next summer if i buy it this fall?

Thanks alot for replying!

There are some great brands. Top of the line is Kryolan Airstream, and sadly far too pricey for most anyone. Graftobian has nice colors. I like VIBE and Endura which now comes in a great new line of FX colors formulated for FaceOff. But too I like ProAiir alot.

Tthe best price on any right now is on the ProAiir. The makeup comes in lots of colors including metallics and flouro, in both a hybrid to wash off with soap and water and alcohol-based for removal with baby oil or alcohol.

You can get by on about 4 oz of makeup and most brands have a 2 plus yr shelf life.
