Default face paint vs. face mask

I am getting tired of using a facemask every year when I deer hunt. I wear glasses and they fog up when I breathe while wearing my facemask (nose-in or out, it doesn't matter). It even makes my diaphragm turkey calls sound weird. I want to use face paint but it's the chore from hell getting that crap off. Any of you guys know anything that would get the facepaint off? Will makeup remover work?
Thanks!

Hot water and soap!! I walked into a grocery store after an archery hunt a few years ago. This little kid started screaming and ran out the door w/ his mother chasing him. Forgot about my face after changing my clothes. It was pretty funny.

Most whole corn is covered with corn dust. Deer can't see the color of your face. Deer see the shine created by the oils in your skin. If it is to hot for a mask just powder your face with some corn dust. You kill two birds with one stone, you cover some of your scent and you get rid of the shine on your face.

ground is covered in dirt where i live... just use a bit water to dampen your cheeks and grab some dirt. comes off pretty easy. in ww2 they used lamp black, otherwise known as soot from a fire to remove face shine. intricate patterns dont serve much purpose

deer key off movement and scent. scent blockers make you smell like a human covered in scent blocker. shiney face makes small movements easier to see by deer.

you dont need fancy stuff. dirty up and stay down wind.

You have never been deer hunting if you have never opened a bag of corn. You have just been sitting in the woods.

of all the deer i ever took when hunting, we never did use corn or any type of feeder. we knew where the deer trails were and built our stands accordingly.

built them about 20-25 feet off the ground. deer as general rule don't look up, unless you are making a lot of noise.

never did face paint or masks from the height we were off the ground. and we just kept movement to a minimum.
