Arm socks/face paint?

I hope this goes here lmao- So I'm planning on getting these arm socks from etsy (I'll link it at the end) but I'm worried about making the difference between my arms and skin seamless. How would I make the transition from tights to skin seamless? I already have a face paint in a pretty close color and plan to get white and darker blue to mix it as I need, but wouldnt you be able to see the edge of the tights? Also, would anyone happen to have bought the connected arm socks and have clear pictures of them? Or should I just get them from somewhere else?

The idea with arsocks is that you hide the edge with a sleeve, necklace, or other object.

There are ways to blend the edges, thing of the arm socks like a prosthetic wound or nose. But honestly I not sure it's worth the effort, since anything will have to be a bit of a trial at first. But - I'd use Zombie Skin or ProsAide Cream.

Thank you! Can you use normal setting spray/powder to seal it? I have some NYX matte spray, but would that be enough?

I would think that would be enough. When I did body paint for Amethyst I tried using Ben Nye Final Seal but (I think due to my cheap spray bottle) it kept having large drops that streaked my paint so I ended up just using hairspray. If that worked I'd imagine actual makeup spray should work even better.
