Snazaroo Face and Body Paints - Review
The paints that I have used in this little video are Snazaroo face and body paints. The main reason why I used these paints as opposed to actual makeup products is because I have more of an art background than a SFX makeup background and I can do a lot more with a paint brush than any eyeliner pen. I will forever swear by these paints, they have a smooth texture and are easy to apply and blend. The paints come in little dishes and are quite solid. They function similar to solid watercolour paints, in that you can apply them in different opacities by adding different amounts of water. The pigment is very strong so I suggest building it up bit by bit. This paint also doesn't feel to heavy on the skin like some other face paints and also does well on all skin types. This is because the paint retains its water well and also clings to the skin marvelously without feeling like theres a plastic film over your face.
Each pot has about 200 faces in it, but of course it depends how heavy the colour is and how much skin you are covering. For El Diablo the face is only slightly lightened, with lots of complex tattoos so I used a small round brush and a fan brush for the details, as shown in the video. These brushes are designed for acrylic and oil paints however, the paint worked so well with these.
