I have an appproved Shaak-Ti and have been using just red and white acrylic paint for her face and red powder blush for the hands. It looks fine---for a while. But of course it hardens and starts to crack and flake off after a while especially the neck. Does anyone have advice on which makeup to use? I have seen suggestions for Mehron and Ben Nye or the greasepaint that clowns use. Anyone have experience with all day makeup?
Thanks for your help and MTFBWY

Check out this website. It was helpful for me. My Rebel Legion costume doesn't require body/face paint but some other cosplays I've done have needed it.

you might want to contact Tokana from Mos Eisley. She does Shaak-ti and Padme in our desert climate so knows which makeups are the best.
