Wet, sweaty skin is a combination of oil on the skin and droplets of moisture. To simulate this, you need to oil the model (baby oil, olive oil etc) and then spray with a diluted glycerin+water mixture.

If you just want the glisten, then oil will do the trick.

As someone mentioned, a heavy layer of talcum powder or some more specialised pearl powder will give a porcelain look. If you want to wet it, you could try high quality water resistant ladies face powder (very expensive).

If you want pearly AND shiny, it will get pretty complicated.
ohh, so maybe try and mix talc with glycerin? is that wat you mean. I just put some glycerin on my skinand found it pretty much looked the same as puting oil on my skin. but i found two more examples anayway =]

Re: wet porcelain skin

Sunflower Seed oil gives a great sheen without looking overly greasy. For added style, you can mist the skin with water after to give it a bit more glisten.
