Bald cap - best makeup/paint to use?

For 1 of my cosplays, I have sewn a piece of a wig onto a bald cap. Now all I have to do is get the bald cap to the same color as my skin... I used what is called "Professional 15 Color Concealer Camouflage Makeup Palette" at first, but it flakes off with a slight touch... so I am looking for other options.

I am looking for suggestions on paints or make-up tips I could use to get the color right... and also, sealing it! I would hate to lay my head on my girlfriend's costume and get the makeup/paint all over her hard work.. so, any tips for this process would be greatly appreciated!

AA (alchohol activated) makeup will stick rather well and PAX even more so as it fuses with the latex.

But even with the pre-painting your will want to blend the bald cap in with you foundation as well to create a smooth colour transition from your face to the fake skin of the cap.
