bodypainting: various bodypainting makeups

Various bodypainting makeups

Although she was by no means the first, Shirley Eaton opened the doors for a series of other actresses to appear in bodypaint (most commonly in gold or metallic, though blue & green are also popular) in movies or magazine spreads. More recently with the increasing use or airbrush techniques a number of actresses have appeared in science fiction movies and series sporting exotic paint jobs.

You will also find bodypaint makeups in the fantasy section and (of a particular sort) among the racechanging makeups.

There is a separate section for fake tattoos.
