Hairspray as bodypaint sealer

Anyone recommend any good brands?

The hairspray I use now is alright but goes on pretty wet and I have to wait a bit for it to dry.

Seconding the aerosol.

If it's in a place on your body where it's possible, you could try using a hairdryer to dry it faster...

Cheap, nasty aerosol sprays like AquaNet seems better at plastering things; the higher-quality brands have conditioners and other formulaic interlopers in them.

Instead of spraying until it's wet, try doing several super-light spray layers over your body, so the hairspray has a chance to dry gradually instead of saturating the skin. That will also provide less chance of running or making sticky patches.

But when it comes to body makeup, I use an actual makeup sealant spray and call it good. ^_^
