Have a natural finish on our foundation is something we all are looking for on our products, make it look like we are not wearing makeup but unifying our skin tone and leaving a flawless finish… but sometimes that´s not enough cause they are some problems like stains, discolorations, blemishes, angiomas or even tattoos that can be cover with a normal makeup foundation and we need something stronger and with more cove range to unify the skin.
And how do we do that without making our skin look like a mask? well for that some brands had created the camouflage makeup without creating the mask effect, with high coverage and discreet finish, thanks to the creamy texture, their formulas and also the technique to apply these products, we will talk about this on this post.
The trick to get the best result on the camouflage makeup is the application, but before that as always is necessary to have your skin ready for the makeup, a clean and moisturized skin is the best canvas to get the best result, exfoliate your skin and moisturize it to make it easier to your skin to look more natural.
Once we have the face ready the best trick to use these camouflage makeup is the application as I was saying, and the best application is with an sponge and use the stippling motions, don´t drag the sponge or you will the opposite result, you will take off the makeup, so damped the sponge and apply the first layer and if you need a bit more coverage let it to get dry and reapply another layer.
But the best trick to get the best result is to DON´T APPLY THIS CAMOUFLAGE MAKEUP JUST ON THE AREA TO COVER, but apply in all the area, so if you are covering a problem on the face apply all around the face otherwise you will get a patch effect on the area, and if we are apply it the product to cover a tattoo on the arm apply it all over the arm or at least a bigger area than just the tattoo.
One of the reason the zombie boy has so realistic cover or his tattoos is cause they cover the entire area and not just some areas of the face or body that way we avoid the patch effect.
One of the primitive camouflage makeup that came into the market long time ago is the Couvrance by Ávene, a range of products that has grown since the first moment, since compact cream foundations, liquid foundations, concealers, color correctors and now even mascara.
The Couvrance formula has a unifying finish, based on the color corrector wheel when a color problem is blocked with the opposite on the wheel.
Leaves a light or matte finish depending of the product we decided to use and has a very natural but with high coverage finish.
One of the techniques to apply the cream compact foundation is to take the damped sponge and create a rotatory movement to get the product and apply it with stippling motion.
Other of the brands that has this camouflage makeup from long time ago is DermaColor by Kryolan, creating system that applying the loose powder will make a waterproof effect, perfect not just to the face but also to use to cover tattoos on the body.
This product has created in the 70´s as a solution to cover imperfections recommended by dermatologists all over the world, today is one of the most efficient and professional camouflage makeup to cover imperfections, stains or tattoos.
The applications is similar that the rest, damped sponge to apply the product and to blend it around 2 centimeters from the area to cover border and if you need to get further blend you can add a bit more water to the sponge, add the loose powder to fix the product and will sty put for hours.
In this kit you can get a few different foundation shades, the fix powder and different skin care products to take off the makeup and to take care of your face.
And last but not least a brand that has become part of Vichy brand, DermaBlend is a product with similar features, in this occasion DermaBlend has three products, a cream compact foundation, a concealer stick and a fluid body foundation.
As the other two the best way to apply it is not to drag the product but use a damped sponge and stippling motions to apply it, leave it to get dry to apply another layer to get higher coverage, set it with loose powder and will get waterproof.
But this is the first brand that has a large package fluid product to use on the body.
