    I did some googling for you and I found one that might work for you. It's called Dermablend Body Cover. It's waterproof, so I'm assuming that it doesn't smear as well. It also comes in about 12 different shades. I have no experience in make up whatsoever though, so you might want to look it up yourself...

    Try alcohol-based body paints.....airbrushed is the best route to go (though stippling it on with a makeup sponge will work too).....There are so many to choose from. Kett Cosmetics makes good ones.
    I'd then seal the the makeup with a sealer such as Final Seal by Ben Nye.....you should be good for a while. If you are a heavy sweater, there is a product called "sweat stop" that you'd apply before anything that acts as a barrier. Try Home - Alcone Corporation
