ColorTration Makeup Application Tips
Your shade is the first step in getting good results. Your
skin tone changes from season to season. A shade that looks
perfect in the winter will not necessarily work for you in
the summer. The skin on your arms, hands or legs may be a
totally different shade from your face or neck. What should
Professional makeup artists solve this dilemma by blending
shades. First identify the shade closest to your skin tone,
that shade is your base color. Next think about what happens
with sun exposure, you get a little or a lot darker. Do you
go golden, brown or rosy? This is when you need to tweak your
base color by mixing a little of a darker shade into it to
adjust the tone with the seasons. Working with two shades
gives you the ability to adjust your ColorTration lighter
or darker as your complexion changes.
Using the right makeup tools is essential. A camouflage makeup
brush is the best way to apply corrective makeup. A camouflage
brush is designed to be used specifically with liquid concealing
makeup. The brush allows you to put on the thinnest layer
of ColorTration exactly where you need it. The brush won't
absorb the ColorTration the way a makeup sponge would so there
is no waste and you don't get makeup all over your hands.
If you are mixing two shades, the camouflage brush is excellent
for swirling the tones together. Our resealable mixing vials
make blending shades simple and are great for quick trips.
Make sure you close them tightly.
ColorTration will self set in a matter of minutes so setting
powder is not necessary. In fact the set of ColorTration keeps
improving over the course of an hour.
Covering Skin Discolorations
Dark Undereye Circles: Moisturize this delicate area.
Apply ColorTration in a thin layer with a camouflage brush.
If the cover is too heavy, you can thin ColorTration with
a little moisturizer and then apply. Use a tiny bit of ColorTration
since it is very concentrated.
Vitiligo: Apply the tiniest bit of ColorTration to
the areas of dipigmentation in the thinnest layer and blend
outwards to the areas of pigmentation.
Spider Veins: Using a brush lightly trace the spider
veins in feather like strokes blending outward. Allow to set
for two minutes and then pat gently with a paper towel to
lift away any excess makeup and reduce the incidence of rub
Portwine birthmarks: Apply a thin layer of ColorTration
with the camouflage brush. Let set for a minute or two and
lightly apply more ColorTration to any areas that need more
Melasma, bruising and other skin discolorations: Use
a tiny bit of ColorTration on the camouflage brush and apply
in a thin layer feathering outwards.
Tattoos: Use a camouflage brush and apply a thin layer
over the entire tattoo. Let set for two minutes. Pat the area
to lift away any excess makeup then retrace any areas of the
tattoo that are still visible. Repeat this process if necessary.
Answers to your questions:
Is there a way to thin ColorTration since I don't need
that much coverage?
Mix a drop of ColorTration into your moisturizer, to adjust
the degree of cover. You can even create a tinted moisturizer
with ColorTration for areas that don't need camouflage. You
control your degree of coverage so you get an even tone.
Can I swim in ColorTration?
Yes, ColorTration is waterproof and the longer you wear it
the more waterproof it is. To avoid any rub off, pat dry (don't
rub) with your towel.
Does ColorTration contain a sunscreen?
No, however since ColorTration is opaque, it affords some
protection from the sun.
How is ColorTration different that other cover makeup?
ColorTration does not require setting powder, it is easily
blendable with other shades and you can thin it with moisturizer
for areas that don't need correcting makeup. It is quick to
apply and lasts all day.
