A friend of mine does a steampunk cosplay where she paints her body and face white (a clockwork doll concept). Unfortunately we've been having difficulties finding an opaque white foundation that works on her skin because she has rosacea, sensitive skin, dry patches, flaking, etc.
We've tried Graftobian cream, Ben Nye cake powder, Skin Illustrator, and even Manic Panic. All will work fine on her body, but once we get to her face, the foundation ends up looking patchy, dry and causes the skin to flake off.
We've tried using primers, not using primers, exfoliating, applying with a buffing brush, applying with a wet sponge, applying with a flat foundation brush...nothing works that well.
Any suggestions? She has an event coming up and we were thinking of trying Illamasqua skin base or possibly rich liquid foundations in white, but I wanted to get some opinions here before she buys online.
