You might think the easiest course of action - although very painful, probably - would be to simply tattoo herself extremely thoroughly, but she doesn't want to do that.
Nope, Lhouraii Li reckons that won't work for her as she thinks she's allergic to tattoos.
At the moment, Li is quite content to continue using face paint, but the West Yorkshire-based nail artist would one day like to make her blueness permanent.
You see, she's obsessed with characters like Diva from 1997 sci-fi movie The Fifth Element, and Zora from The Legend of Zelda video games.
It's not as if it is that expensive a habit, to be fair. She says she uses 'the cheapest good make-up' she can get, and spends about £10 ($13) per month on it.
As well as her nail artist job, she also sells clothing and nail presses that she makes on the brightly coloured canal boat she shares with her long-term partner Nathan.
She explained: "I've always felt quite alone and like I don't belong and it's a really horrible feeling.
"So I tried to make myself a little world where I kind of feel like I do belong.
"I've got pictures of space in the windows because I'm in here 99.9 percent of the time, so if I'm feeling down I can pretend like I exist in a place that's happy and just look like I'm in a spaceship or something.
"And I think that's the same with being blue as well - it's just a way for me to feel like myself."
She continued: "I think my idea of beauty is people being themselves.
"If I see someone with blue skin I'll think they look 10 times better just because I truly love blue skin.
"But people being their true selves, living for themselves, and just dressing how they want to dress - I find that so beautiful."
She actually started to do this style two years ago, but it has gradually evolved over time. Before she started painting herself completely blue she used to use white face paint with blue eye shadow.
Li added: "My style used to be mistaken as me trying to look like a Barbie and I wasn't actually. The style was a Japanese subculture called Gyaru and I still consider myself Gyaru, but just blue."
Hey, whatever floats your boat.
