There are a million and one tutorials and guides for mixing and using body paint out there, especially for clowns and Homestuck trolls. You can ask in the HS general >>7687196 or just google that shit.

How about you DON'T use that all over your entire body and then go out in public.

So you want CGL to google "purple bodypaint" for you or..........

Just look up the usual brands (ben nye, kyrolan, mehron, etc) and look for a purple in her color.

so as a former homestuck cosplayer I'm going to give you some advice and say DON'T put paint on your arms and legs (knees). use tights, and get an extra pair and make armsocks. any homestuck cosplay blog will have a tutorial on it and you wont have to worry about managing it on your fingers all day. it's way more comfortable and convenient.
As for paint, use ben nye or snazaroo, and do multiple coats. use a tear drop shaped sponge.

as a homosuck DO NOT USE GREASE/CREAM PAINT ON YOUR ARMS holy fuck you will get purple on every surface in the con center

make armsocks or look into PAX. or, if you MUST paint your arms, which I still wouldn't recommend for purple, use a waterbase like kryloan/mehron/wolfe since it will smudge marginally less.

Or you know, a body suit. Trim it around the neck and then use stage paint for the rest.

Second, go with this and cut out eyes so you can see, no need for a wig cap, just place that wig on top of that bitch and go!
