makeup help?

Hello. This isn't my first cosplay, but it's my first cosplay I've run into this problem with. I'm cosplaying god cloak Yuno Gasai and came across something. The costume has to be pulled over my head, which isn't too big of a deal on its own but how am I to do my makeup? I don't want end up wiping half of it off while putting it on, nor do I want to end up screwing up my costume by doing makeup AFTER its already on (I'm a very messy person XD). This is a tad of a problem because I am a firm believer in, no matter how much natural beauty you have, you're going to look washed up in every picture without it. So I don't want to go without it, nor do I want to chance messing up my costume. Any ideas?
And, on a slightly related note, what do you suggest for fake blood? I dont want to put it on my costume or anything, just on my hands, face, and prop (which I'm not worried about salvaging so being permanent dosent really matter). I've tried researching it but everything seems to be about putting it on clothes, not skin. Thanks so much in advance

Ben bye sells fake blood you can use on your body~
Also it's like a hood right? Do your makeup first and then put on the hood. Just B's careful when putting it on

I'v heard good things about that kind actually. I think I'll look into it
and iit does have a hood, but that's not the problem. The problem is its a dress technicall, and the way the neck is done it scrapes against my face to put it on.
but thank you

Put your makeup on after putting on the your costume. But wear something to cover it up so makeup doesn't get on it. A zip up hoodie with paper towels folded over the edges could work perfectly. If you're scared about the bottom half somehow getting messy, drape a towel or old sheet over your lap or wear a trashbag as a skirt to protect your costume.
What's this for? It's a wig.
What's it for? To disguise yourself from yourself.

Try using a setting spray after you out on your makeup. A good tutorial I've found for not having makeup wipe off is Michelle Phan's tutorial on waterproofing your makeup. A lot of it can apply to you, probably.

I really like Ben Nye's fake blood. ^_^

I always do makeup after my costume is on, but with a cover. Button ups or zip-up hoodies often work well. For thicker costumes, I went out and bought a cosmetology cape because they easily go over pretty much anything. A rain poncho could work too, and I've seen people use garbage bags as well.
If we should get separated, just whistle. I'll come running. I promise.
