Makeup is best –
I tried some other media and had nothing but trouble, even after cutting it with a lot of water. The time I spent cleaning my guns instead of painting my actors killed me, so i switched to airbrush makeup exclusively last year. Whan a difference! No problems with actors skin, it went on quick and easily without gumming up my guns, and I cut my prep time from 4 hours in previous years down to just two hours last year (and it could have been even quicker but I had a few actors that needed a lot of makeup!).
I use Graftobian which works really well, although I dont necessarily like the bottles as they tend to leak sometimes.
