How to Camouflage Scars, Pigmentation Irregularities, Tattoos...?
Re-create the natural "flaws" in the skin (mottling) for camouflaging scars,
bruises, tattoos, pigmentation irregularities, port wine stains, etc.
Color matching is more difficult on the body than the face.
Look at any area of your body and you'll see that the skin tone is not
completely flawless. There are varying shades, spots and mottling.
For natural-looking camouflage, it's best to re-create the natural mottling
of the skin. After concealing, take a different shade of makeup and
try to re-create the skin around it.
A cotton swab will allow you to stipple and mottle the surface.
This technique is easiest to master by just letting go and playing with the colors.
Once you've mastered it, you'll achieve an amazingly natural look.
How Skin Type Affects Make Up Colour?
Different skin types are suited best by different colours of make up.
How often have you thought that a make up application was out of place
on one person, when you could imagine it looking good on someone else?
Those people haven't yet found the best colours for them.
There are many combinations possible, but some classic colours are:
For cool-toned skin, consider going for pink, light blues, mauves and silver.
For warmer or darker complexions try colours such as bronze, gold,
apricot and caramel.
How To Deal With Makeup Allergy?
Some women unfortunately have an allergy to a certain make up.
It is usually easy to spot - there will be redness, dryness or itching after
application; and this can make use of a product intolerable.
Well, look at the ingredients and find what the chemicals are at base
of the product. Then try other cosmetics that do not contain these chemicals
and you should be able to find something that works for you.
