I am planning a shoot where I am going to be using flesh toned liquid latex, and I need to know if there is any foundation that will cover this to make it blend in with the rest of the skin.  It is a shoot I am doing with a friend of mine for fun, so I can't afford to hire a MUA, so any help I can get is much appreciated.  The latex is going to be stretched during the shoot, so I need a foundation that will stick and stay put.  Thanks.

I'd say hire a MUA with experience in this.
You do need a special foundation for this and its pretty pricey.
Regular foundation get's "eaten away" by the latex.

And unless your experienced with latex, you could do some damage, so be careful.

If you can't afford one, offer TFP, I'm sure someone is looking for experience.

I have flesh colored latex, but when it is applied to the skin the color doesn't quite match up, and the latex shows up under the lights to shiney.  It is going to be a horror/gore shoot, where the latex is going to have hooks in it to stretch the latex and make it look like the skin is being pulled off.  We are also going to be using fake blood during the shoot.

mmm ok, well make sure you use a product like RMGP ( rubber mask greese paint) or the make-up will EAT through the latex.  make sure that what ever you put over the latex is made to go over latex.
good luck..Mandy of Deadly Design Make-up Artistry

I would say to go with a make-up artist who understands how to work with latex. You might be able to find a student.
