Today I had the opportunity to put my advanced certifications to work! I love doing camoflauge, but it's not something I'm able to do very often. This evening a client came in looking for a product to conceal a scar on her neck. Here are her before and after photos:
Ideally I would have liked to conceal the texture a little bit more, but I wanted to keep the products minimal and practical. Recently I have been a fan of using Paint Pots from MAC as concealer. They offer a full coverage, matte finish, and are water resistant. I chose the shade Quite Natural, and then buffed NW45 Studio Fix Powder on top to neutralize the color. I would have liked to incorporate some foundation and perhaps line filler to help smooth the skin, but we needed to find a routine that was practical for her everyday life.
Paint Pots are great products for covering tattoos, birthmarks, scars, etc...Basically anything that requires a heavy amount of coverage. I have noticed that many full coverage concealers give a "made up" look to the skin, which is fine on the face, but not ideal for the body. Paint Pots mimic the texture of skin, thus giving a more natural effect.
My attempt at keeping up with the times...
