Coloring/make-uping scar wax

So i have 2 16 oz tubs of scar wax and have begun making the slices and slashes for the actors bodies. I know to apply them with spirit gum if in a non-hairy/fresh shaved area. What I don`t know is how to apply makeup to tone match the actors skin. In quick tests i did with Karo syrup blood...the sryup doesn`t even stick to the wax...runs right off like water. I haven`t tried makeup yet, and was wondering if there is a trick to getting makeup to stick.

Also, any tips on making the cuts look authentic? Someone told be use black makeup down the center of the cuts...yes?
