Quick body paint sealent question

I'm doing a homestuck troll this year and would like to know if after a couple coats of the products specific sealent, is it a bad idea to use other products for extra protection?
What other home products could I used? I've hear of people using hair spray and sun screen would this be bad?i need this stuff to stay on all day and not rub off until I take a shower

I'm using snazaroo in case that matters
There's just so many tutorial I don't know what I should do

I painted myself pink for a Princess Bubblegum cosplay and it took around 11 coats of hairspray to seal it. So if you can, I would suggest buying a sealant (I've heard Ben Nye's Final Seal is good). Then I would also suggest trying a patch test. Just paint part of your arm or something with one or two coats of paint (however much you plan on using) and put a layer of sealant over it. Then run your finger on the patch and see if any comes off. If it does, add another layer and do that until your finger comes out clean. I would also suggest a primer underneath the body pain to keep it on longer.

as said above, home products take longer and need more to seal u. I just painted my friend grey for her marceline cosplay. we bought the smallest size of final seal (by ben nye, it works for any brand) and barely used a fourth of it. we painted her face, arms, fingers, and chest! its about the same price as hair spray too.

Baby powder, or any sort of transparent powder. Put a load on a puff and powder your face until the stickiness of the make-up goes away. That should seal your paint very well, but if you want to be double sure, use some BN final seal (or hairspray if you're on a budget, but I'm personally not a fan.)
