My favorite is pastel. I spread them with my finger tips on the paper. It's an old technique. Used already by Leonardo Da Vinci. Very popular in 18th century. I like it. It's very convenient. Once at the Buckingham Palace, I was supposed to paint Princess Ann. Entered and saw that they spread sheets all over the room. They were thinking, everything will be splashing. 
I sometimes use oil. An oil portait takes more time. Though, it gives a lot of pleasure to the artist, as it allows for more detail.
