What is Skin Camouflage?
Skin camouflage is the application of specialist camouflage product to areas of skin suffering from pigmentation issues in order to lessen their visual impact. Typically, pigmentation is the result of scarring, birthmarks, vitiligo, acne, rosacea or psoriasis – however, anything and everything that results in an area of skin looking different in colour can be addressed.
Akin to cosmetic products, camouflage cremes are highly pigmented and formulated to be long-lasting and waterproof when applied correctly. They were initially conceived for soldiers injured during the wars, and are thus designed to tackle even very significant damage to the skin without looking like make-up.
During a skin camouflage consultation, I identify the correct product and shade for my clients, then teach them the correct techniques to safely and hygienically apply and remove camouflage product. After a skin camouflage consultation with Skin Confident, clients will be well equipped to recreate the results easily at home and to incorporate skin camouflage into their daily routines.
For any concerns on the face, skin camouflage can easily be combined with every day make-up to create an overall effect. As a make-up artist, I can advise on the best techniques and product combinations.

In his own words
Skin Camouflage Practitioner
I became interested in skin camouflage after I suffered from burns scars myself as a teenager. I spent time at the specialist burns unit and saw first-hand the devastating effect that scars can have on a person’s life.
As a result, I retrained as a make-up artist (after a career in law) and took additional qualifications with the British Association of Skin Camouflage to be able to help people feel more confident about their appearance.
During a consultation with me we will work together to find the best possible skin camouflage for you – products that will conceal your pigmentation, but not look heavy or caked on. Once you are happy with the colour match I will teach you exactly how to recreate the look. My consultations are about empowering you to go about your daily life with more confidence so I want you to go away feeling that you know exactly what to do once you get home.
