This was Jenny’s dilemma earlier this week after deciding that her beautiful tattoo, that she loved so much, did not quite co-ordinate with her Ladies Day outfit, which caused quite the pickle! Jenny and I have known each other a few years now, so with my camouflage kit in hand, I was only to happy help!
The Power Of Make Up
Whilst make up artists can provide you with the best techniques on covering spots, small scars and pigmentation, there are specialist techniques and products you use to cover tattoos, scars, hyper pigmentation and port wine stains for example. By using specific camouflage make up, coupled with the right technique, it can provide long lasting, water proof and flawless coverage.
Jenny and I spent an hour or so this morning and she kindly took some snaps whilst I was working and is very happy for me to share them with you, as she was over the moon with the results;
The great news for Jenny, is that the products are waterproof and will stay until she removes them with make up remover, plus if she showers (without wiping the covered area too much), the camouflage will last until the following day. I’ve asked Jenny to give us some feedback on how she got on!
I also worked with the lovely Vicki recently on covering a tattoo (which is also on my website);
‘Victoria covered a tattoo on my arm for me and did a grand job. I know the longevity of cover cannot be guaranteed but I was amazed to find it was STILL covered after taking a bath. Very happy with the result and would certainly recommend this service if it is something you are considering’.
Specialist camouflage for tattoos, birth marks, pigmentation, burn scars and port wine stains are all within my training repertoire, which was carried out at Charles Fox in Covent Garden, working with members of the public, who had the aforementioned skin concerns they would like addressing.
We worked with one young girl with a severe burn mark down her leg that she had from being a child and another lady with hyper pigmentation on her forehead which occured during pregnancy and felt very
I love how the power of make up can change someone’s life, even when it’s something as simple as wearing shorts and not hiding beneath long skirts or jeans.
So for my lovely bridal clients, if you are wearing a strapless gown and you do not want that arm or shoulder tattoo on show in your pictures or the ankle tattoo that does not quite match your beautiful bridal shoes or, the slight facial pigmentation that you would love evened out for your big day - I can help!
