only for a few hours tan?

Hi, I was hoping to get my skin a bit darker to cosplay Sakura from Dangan Ronpa and was wondering if anyone could help me with finding the right way to do this?

For a photoshoot, I think I'd just suck it up and get a spray tan. But I don't exactly want to do that for a convention since I need my normal skin tone for my other cosplays to look alright.

So is there a way to make my skin tanner or well at least not be all T-shit tan in a way that won't be left of my skin for days afterward? Or can anyone suggest a good liquid makeup I can use for it that won't hopefully clog my pores and cause me to break out all over my body? The powder I went with for a previous cosplay rubbed off by the first hour so I'm hoping for something a bit more substancial.

Reference pic: Sakura

Note: I kinda find it important for this cosplay because her hair clashing with her skin is important to me as a detail about the cosplay. Also, she is absolutely my favorite character from Dangan Ronpa so I wish to cosplay her well.

I really like Lush's product Charlotte Island. It's tinted lotion, not body paint, and it builds color up very slowly. It comes right off in the shower. I've never had it cause breakouts or anything unwanted.

I second the Lush recommendation. It's nice and moisturizing, too (I have the sparkly version of that bar.). I think it will be with the massage and lotion bars, if your Lush is anything like mine. They had two different shades, too, and it just gives that nice little hint of sun kissed color.
