I plan on making a cybernetic implant but have no idea how to attach it to my skin. Is there some sort of makeup adhesive that is face skin safe? I know that this isn't very specific, but im at a loss and have no idea what to specifically ask lol

I plan on doing an implant on the side of my face that looks sort of like the ones you can add to your character in SWTOR.

I believe what you are after perhaps is a product called "Spirit Gum".

I believe this is what is used in make up departments for applying things like face beards and moustaches, hair pieces, sfx parts etc

Yep - definitely spirit gum - here's a quick YouTube showing how to apply it...

The trick will be to do a whole heap of experimentation - keep the appliance lightweight and don't forget your skin flexes so if you can build it in such a manner that it moves with your face you'll be good. (Possibly a flexible piece on your face with smaller, hard pieces attached on top.)

I've only ever done horror type makeups with spirit gum, foam latex appliances, building up fake skin with liquid latex so can't advise on what would be best for something that needs to look more rigid.

I would second Syko's comment about making the implant out of something flexible. Then yes, spirit gum to attach and liquid latex to blend it in so it looks like it's coming out of your face.
