Does Face Paint Streak?

How well does the Mehron Face Paint stay in place? If I wear it outdoors in the sun and perspire, will the paint run or streak. How about exercise or athletic dance routines? I don't want a smeary skin with smudged colors.

so you need to set your makeups using a final seal. this will help prevent the running and such. however it won't stay on forever as it still is water activated. after u have the final seal it should last a few hours no issue as long as ur not in a shower of sweat. if you notice ur sweating just add a quick mist of the spray. i used it to do tribal tattoos and then dance in it for about an hour w no running

It only streaks if you don't apply it well.

I'm wearing Mehron in my icon, actually. Suki is a particularly hot cosplay-- multiple layers, foam armor, wig + headpiece, etc.-- and in Otakon's heat (90-100 degrees and 95% humidity), I was amazingly fine all day. Setting powder and sealant are incredibly important for making sure it doesn't run!
