I don't like using liquid latex for the sake of coloring the skin. The only exception is when you need the ability to remove the stuff super quickly. The problem with liquid latex is that it sticks to itself so much better than it sticks to the skin. The result is that once any part of the latex starts to peel away from the skin, it is the beginning of the end. It peels away more and more and even if you touch it up with spirit gum, it looks more and more artificial.

Go with body paint, and stay away from the "halloween makeup" at the party stores. There is lots of discussion of body paint on this board, so search about to learn more.
