There are seven unique facepaints to be obtained for this achievement.

NOTE: There are several extra facepaints that are obtainable by selecting "I like MGS3!" when starting the game. I don't know if these are necessary for completion, so if someone can verify this, that'd be great.

1) Zombie, Rassvet. After you meet up with EVA for the first time and the Ocelot unit ambushes you, go behind the building to find this tucked away in a corner.

2) Snow, Bolshaya Past Base. Right before the boss battle with Ocelot, you pass by a base with a helicopter. This is in the trenches surrounding the base under a bridge.

3) Desert, Ponizovje Warehouse. After beating The Pain and swimming through the river, you come to a warehouse. On the bottom floor by the large doors is the desert facepaint.

4) Oyama, Graniny Gorki 1F. There's a crawlspace entrance that leads from outside the building to the courtyard inside the building; Oyama is in this crawlspace.

5) Water, Ponizovje South. After defeating The Fear, swim back through the river towards the cave you fought The Pain. This will be waiting for you near the cave entrance.

6) Kabuki, Tikhogornyj. After meeting EVA behind the waterfall, go back to the pond the waterfall is pouring into and dive down, it's at the bottom.

7) Infinity, Special. The simplest way is to catch a tsuchinoko and keep it until the end of the game. For details on how to catch one, check the achievement for doing just that:

When you lose all of your food, if you had one in a cage, there will be an area right before the waterfall path that will have the tsuchinoko flopping about. Shoot it with a tranquilizer and keep it until the end of the game.

The achievement unlocks as soon as you obtain the final facepaint.
