High Performance Coverage For The Hard-To-Cover

Are you after a high performing full coverage foundation that not only leaves your skin looking like it’s been airbrushed, but also has the longevity to ensure your makeup lasts all night?

Pardon the pun, but I’ve got you covered with this brand, which is specifically designed for covering skin concerns like acne, pigmentation and vitiligo.

Dermablend is a dermatologist formulated range of high coverage, camouflaging makeup, with product options to conceal a range of skin conditions and concerns and address all your full coverage makeup needs.

Preparation is key

This is the most important step in managing the texture of your skin. You need to prep your skin before applying your foundation. Make sure your skin is freshly cleansed and moisturised before applying a suitable primer for your skin type.

If you suffer from acne, you may want to opt for a primer with a green base like Dermalogica’s Redness Relief Primer to counteract any redness, or if you have drier skin, make sure you invest in a hydrating formula like Laura Mercier’s Hydrating Foundation Primer.

 

Perfect Your Application Technique

Using a clean brush (I like Sigma’s F80 Flat Kabuki), start applying Dermablend Smooth Liquid Camo Foundation to the centre of the face and blend outwards.

The Smooth Liquid Camo Foundation provides a medium to full coverage, which is fantastic for disguising uneven skin tone, blemishes or pigmentation. It feels lightweight on the skin, with a smooth texture and a non-drying finish.

Try not to go too heavy on your coverage, instead spot treat any harder to cover areas with Dermablend Quick Fix Concealer. Just use a concealer brush to blend the product into the skin.

Setting it in place

For long-lasting coverage, setting your face is crucial. I recommend applying Dermablend Loose Setting Powder all over your face with a clean powder brush, then wait a couple of minutes before dusting off any excess product.

Finally, use a setting spray to keep your makeup fixed, and to give the skin a boost of hydration so you avoid that cakey look.

What are the benefits?

Dermablend Smooth Liquid Camo Foundation is my go-to for blemish coverage when my standard foundation just isn’t enough.

– Provides a long lasting finish, with a medium-full coverage

– Layers beautifully on the skin, without leaving makeup looking ‘heavy’

– It’s easy to build up in areas that need a little more coverage

– It won’t transfer or rub off during the day (especially if set properly)

– It leaves your skin with an even looking texture and a soft velvety finish

Who’s It For?

This foundation would be most suitable for someone looking to cover light scars, blemishes or age spots. As it’s more of a matte finish, it would be better for more of an combination-oily skin type. Dermablend offer a fantastic range of high coverage options for a variety of skin conditions and concerns.

Pro Tip:

Cleansing your skin properly after wearing makeup, and using acne suitable skincare will also help to reduce breakouts caused by congestion. If you need some help choosing the right skincare for you, contact us here.

“Let’s just say I LOVE this product! I had been searching for a medium to full coverage foundation for a long time and wanted to make sure it didn’t seem cakey and obvious. I use this product every day and it evens my skin tone perfectly without being heavy at all. It also has a velvety texture and makes my skin look airbrushed a little. When I go out on weekends I use the full coverage powder over the top and my skin is flawless! I have hooked almost all of my friends onto this and they all love it. I highly recommend for any use!”
