Smile Skin Camouflage Products

Hello All,

Just thought I would pass on some of my experience of what products to use to cover a pws.

I am a qualified skin camouflage practitioner (based in the UK) and recommend to my clients a variety of products depending on the look, ease of application, costs and efficacy that a client wants/needs.

I, myself, have a large facial portwine stain and use DermaColor (shade D1W - I am a blue eyed blonde!) every day. My pws is fairly large and a deep purple colour. So DermaColor is perfect for me as it covers medium to dark pws easily. Once applied to the pws and a "setting" powder over it, it is completely waterproof. I then use a mineral powder make up all over my whole face and a little bronzer to tone in.

Also, I have used Veil - great by the way for children because of its sheer consistency, Dermablend and Keromask which have all been appreciated by my clients in covering various disfigurement. These are also waterproof when applied with a "setting" powder over.

All of these products are mixable, either with themselves or with other skin camouflage products, to get the nearest skin tone colour.

I also use "mainstream" (i.e. non camouflage) products too, one of which is Estee Lauder Maximum Cover Double Wear Camouflage make up which also comes in a useful variety of shades. This is a fabulous product and will cover light to light/medium pws with great ease, without the need for powder.

All of the above products are excellent at camouflaging pws effectively. However there are numerous other products on the market but, in my opinion, these are some of the best.

I hope I have helped some of you!

Good luck and stay healthy.
