What Kind of Paint Is Used on Skin?

There are many different kinds of paint used on both the body and face, including Sakura wide-tip markers, Magic color and Mehron face and body paints, airbrush textile acrylics and liquid latex. These different types of makeup are used by models, actors, protesters, soldiers and civilians for costumes and dressing up.

Airbrush textile acrylics are low-cost, versatile and nontoxic. This particular paint is also fast-drying and very flexible. Magic color and Mehron face and body paints, with the primary ingredient being alcohol, are opaque and dry quickly. Liquid latex has gained increased popularity throughout recent years, but has been around for quite some time. It is not as messy as other paints and peels away from shaved skin very easily.
