Tips for Camouflaging and Color-Correcting

5/02/2018 Osmosis Skincare 2 Comments

Osmosis is all about creating permanent change in the skin utilizing eastern medicine philosophies paired with advanced technology to repair and heal conditions at the source. While this permanent change is possible, no one is perfect, and blemishes, redness, and hyperpigmentation still exist and always seem to make their appearance at the most inconvenient times (though, we're not sure there's ever really a "convenient" time for a giant pimple). Luckily, there are some strategic ways to color correct and camouflage these imperfections in a pinch without looking thick or "cakey"!

Conceal. Don't Seal.

Camouflaging should be a gentle illusion that helps make the skin appear a more neutral and brightened tone. Less is more! Avoid layering multiple products thick onto the skin. Not only does this draw attention to the area you are trying to distract from, it looks very unnatural and can clog pores and irritate the skin further. Our Age-Defying Treatment Concealer is lightweight but richly pigmented to deliver natural-looking coverage without compromising performance.

Shades of Glory.

The shade of concealer you choose for color correcting or camouflaging is crucial to the result. When concealing dark circles under the eyes, go for a concealer that's a shade or two lighter than your natural skin tone. When covering redness or hyperpigmentation, choose a shade that best matches your skin's undertones and intensity to help blend effortlessly and create a flawless, airbrushed look. You can even dabble with colored concealers that work to accurately hide pesky pimples and blemishes by counteracting discoloration!

Application is Key.

There are many debates on how to properly apply your concealer (and all of your makeup for that matter). And while it really boils down to personal preference, we're big believers in using our own built-in application tools... our fingers! Your ring finger helps to delicately deliver product to your skin while promoting maximum coverage with a smooth, non-feathered finish. For best results, apply concealer after applying your foundation, then set with a Finishing Powder to keep it from separating or running.

No matter how diligent you are with your skincare regimen, chances are, you will need to lean on your concealer at times. Use these tools, tips, and tricks to achieve the most natural-looking coverage and put your best face forward every day! Shop your bases, foundations, and Finishing Mist here to complete the look.
