HELLO TROLL COSPLAYERS! Im now in the posession of all three leading kinds of grey makeup and i wanted to show everyone the different outcomes before you buy somthing that might not work how you want it too.
BEN NYE GREY/WHITE MIXED POTS: its a cream makeup so setting it is difficult and it rubs off even after being set with ben nye spray.
Wolfe Cosmetics Gray/White: the grey is MUCH. TOO. DARK. similar to pencil lead in color. Youd better buy white if you want to mix them because Wolfe is known for not playing nice with OTHER BRANDS of makeup. Ben Nye spicificly formulated thier setting spray NOT TO WORK with wolfe products. the grey will become dry and turn bright pink if mixed with ben nye setting spray. the one up side to Wolfe is that it sets itself once dry. im currently scratching my arm covered in Wolfe and i swear on my life, not even an ATOM of it has moved or faked off.
Snazaroo Light Grey Makeup: So Snazaroo is popular, and let me tell you why… oh wait… i dont need to. at all. you get it wet, put it on with a foundation brush, let it dry, ben nye / hair spray it a tiny pit, and baby powder it. and boom. its light grey troll skin and it wont go anywhere for quite awhile. i have to admit my doubts about snazaroo because, well, somthing so cheap and clownish just sounds too cheap to be as good as the high-end Wolfe and Ben nye makeups… but… low and behold. my favorite among all others, is Snazaroo.
Hobby-Lobby Body Paints: These are a super cheap and very good immitation of the previously mentioned makeups, and if you can only aford one, i would go with the white. it mixes very well with any other brand of makeup, especially snazaroo if you want a lighter tone and the white can be MIXED WITH BEN NYE SETTING SPRAY INSTEAD OF WATER AND YOU CAN PUT IT ON AND ONCE IT DRIES IT WONT MOVE EVEN IF YOU DRAG YOU ARM AGAINST A TEXTURED WALL. I TRIED IT. MY BOYFRIEND WATCHED ME, ITS TRUE.
i hope this helped anyone mixed up in all the confusing mixed up world of monochromatic flesh paint like i was!
