Black and white face paint

So I'm working on Domino for NYCC, and I thought I'd do some asking around about good face paint.

Reference

I've seen a lot of good reviews for Ben Nye Clown White for white paint, but I haven't found any similar suggestion for black/gray. Also, while I won't need it to be full body as she's fully clothed, I will need it to cover my neck and collarbone/chest as can be seen in the reference. Would Ben Nye be alright for that? Or would something else be better?

Thanks!

Ben Nye, Mehron and Reel Creations both have appropriate colors that would work. All three are used in the film industry.

For facepaint that you're going to be wearing all day, I always recommend water-activated paint. For one, it dries and won't be greasy or sticky. And, you can easily layer it without smearing.

both brands offer black and white. And you can find Snazaroo at most Micheal's stores!

Wolfe is an excellent choice, Mehron's Paradise is also very good.

Reel Creation is excellent but an airbrush makeup and needs to be applied with more safety measured than most airbrush makeup such as Wolfe E flow, Graftobian, EBA Endura or SOAB ProAiir and the likes.

Use a good fixing / barrier spray under and over and you can wear water-activated cake makeup all day.

I second that notion.

Creme makeup, while it looks good, doesn't really dry, even when you powder and seal it, and it could smear easily onto your costume or others if you're not careful. I'd recommend using water-activated cake makeup or liquid face paint. Wolfe Brothers FX has yielded some of the best results I've seen so far.

Alternatively, you could use liquid paint (Ben Nye MagiColor or Mehron Liquid paint). These also apply evenly and have an opaque finish.
