Post Painting skin?

Alright, for an upcoming costume I need to be completely white. Like ethereal white and I don't have an air brush. So does anyone have any recommendations for certain brands that won't rub off? It's going to be on my face, my arms, my back, and my hands. I'm mostly worried about it rubbing off my palms onto things.
I know about sealant spray and all that fun stuff, but it's pointless if I don't have anything to seal right? Hahaha.

Any good face and body paint will work. Try Mehron's Paradise AQ is it nicely opaque and easy to use. I do suggest using Mehron;s Sweat Barrier over the makeup to make it more durable. Now if you need to change the color to be a more blue white you could look ti add a touch of light blue or look at the Mehron Starblend colors. You can then use the Sweat Barrier under the Starblend.

White is the hardest color to apply, so do practice.

Mehron is great. I personally prefer Ben Nye, but both will work the same way. (:

I use Ben Nye MagiCake Aqua Paint
Then I mix it with the Ben Nye Final Seal instead of water.
2 layers then a light spray of the final seal over
Won't rub at all, I use it on my hands, it looks very natural too!
Well as natural as my orange looks....
