camouflage makeup

Start by applying your appropriate foundation formula from the center of the face and working outwards, blend into the ears. Apply a covering product on top of the zones where you need to cover still visible blemishes, spots or redness. Give your complexion a soft mat finish and fix your foundation by applying  powder, starting at the center of the face, working outwards using sweeping movements. Apply contour in the hallow of the face with a darker shade then your skin tone. Behind the ears along the jawbone, sweep towards the chin and blend upwards. Sculpt the cheeks (blend this shade slightly towards the mouth and blend it upwards the cheekbone).

Camouflage CosmeticsOne of the unfortunate after-effects of excisional surgery is that it often leaves a scar.  And, because many skin cancers crop up on parts of the body that are most exposed to the sun, having a carcinoma on the face — and a scar after treatment — is very common.

Fortunately, cosmetics can go a long way to concealing scars, moles, dark sun spots, or the lightened skin that can result from dermatological treatments. Some have added sunscreen ingredients,  are non-comedogenic, and hypoallergenic.  They are available at cosmetic counters, and pharmacies, or by searching for “camouflage cosmetics” online.

Foundation

Foundation comes in many forms, but its purpose is always the same: to smooth and even out skin’s texture and tone.  Choosing a foundation should depend on your skin type and the level of opacity needed.

Four basic foundation types are available: oil-based, water-based, oil-free and water-free.  Oil-based foundations are better for dry skin, while oil-free work best for oily skin.  Water-based foundations generally suit all skin types, and water-free, or anhydrous foundation, is specially formulated to be very opaque and extremely long-lasting, and is used only when complete and total coverage is required.

Your foundation should match your skin tone.  Do not try to correct your overall skin tone by using a darker or lighter foundation — the results will look fake, and you could wind up making your scar or other defect look worse.  For best results, compare the tint to your skin tone in natural light.  Some department store cosmetic companies will custom blend a foundation for you, but regular off-the-shelf foundations are available in dozens of shades and are less expensive.

It is generally believed that the ‘dab and blend’ technique is the most effective when applying foundation, rather than wiping it on with a sponge.  Dab dots of foundation along your cheekbones, forehead, nose and chin, and then blend into the skin with a circular motion using your fingers.  Be sure to extend the foundation into the hairline, and an inch below the jawline.  If you have chosen a good foundation and blended well, you should not have a visible line of demarcation anywhere on your face.  Finish the job by wiping the face in a downward motion with a sponge.  This will even out streaks and flatten tiny facial hairs.

Maria Angel talks about her experiences of living with a facial birthmark and how the Changing Faces skin camouflage service has helped. Was it your husband?’

“He was made to look like a wife-beater,” says Maria.

The mother-of-two from Normandy, Surrey, says coming to terms with her appearance has been a long journey.

She has been using skin camouflage as part of her daily routine to cover the nevus and increase her confidence since she was 15 years old.

“I was born with a rare condition,” she says.

“As I grew up, my birthmark reacted to hormonal changes, which meant it became more noticeable when I was a teenager. 

“It’s a time when you least want to stand out because of an unusual appearance.

“I was afraid to look people in the eye because my left eye looked so different to my right eye. I felt isolated and meeting people for the first time was always stressful.”

Just before her 16th birthday, Maria went for a skin camouflage consultation and she’s been using skin camouflage ever since.

For a long time, she still held out hope that the birthmark could one day be removed entirely.

The facial disfigurement charity recently took over running the skin camouflage service from the Red Cross.

“I have learnt from Changing Faces that people with good coping strategies and good social skills, who have a positive outlook on life, tend to suffer fewer problems of personal intrusion and discrimination.

“I have learnt to adopt more confident body language and to look a person straight in the eyes, which allows you to be on equal terms.”

Changing Faces has about 180 skin camouflage practitioners across the UK, working out of GP surgeries, health clinics, hospitals, Red Cross and Changing Faces offices.
