LICK-proofing paint?

Post by Amanda on Tue Oct 09, 2012 10:16 pm

Hi guys... so I have some awesome halloween clients lined up this year with some fun unique design requests. But my biggest challenge at this point is how to paint their lips and make the paint "lick-proof" for hours. Does anyone have any product recommendations? I tried Lipchic but it didn't work at all. (at $13 a bottle I was really hoping it would!) Anything else I should try??

Apply lip liner, powder, brush off excess. Apply lipstick, blot, powder, remove excess. Apply another layer of lipstick, blot, powder, blot again to press the powder in, brush off excess.

This will hold all night through heavy kissing scenes, drinking and eating. They may even have to scrub it off in the morning.

Will this work with face paint instead of lipstick? And do I need a specific setting powder or just a translucent powder?

No, you'll need to use actual lip liner pencils and lipstick - but any old cheap brand. Now is a good time to pick up strange colours in Halloween collections.

I use baby powder as it is completely colour neutral or you can buy translucent setting powder (more expensive.)

Face paints are water activated and while some people are really careful about not licking their lips and using straws, etc. you can't really set it on lips.

No, it will not work with face paint. But I bet if you put Tabasco on top of the face paint you will not lick it off all night long Razz

Those lip stickers are cool looking but NOT practical they are fiddly, have to be cut and trimmed to fit the lips they are being put on and hard to wear

If you're looking for black and white specifically is it possible that waterproof eyeliners may be used in place of lip liners??? (probably best answered by Shannon)

Pencil form, sure (but be aware of the blues - not recommended for lips Rolling Eyes )

But the waterproof eyeliners are generally liquids and IMO they don't hold up all that well ... they'll crack and flake off around the lips.

I think the clown paint (grease one) will work with Shannon's instructions.

Oh yeah, any cream oil based make-up aka grease paint will work as "lipstick". They may be a bit thicker and drier than an actual lipstick, but you can definitely use the same process.
