How to Apply Camouflage and Cover Makeup for
Specific Skin Conditions

Follow our guide for using cover makeup to camouflage and conceal specific problems.

1) Cover Makeup for Vitiligo

The first and most important step in getting good results is selecting the correct shade or mix of shades to match your skin tones perfectly. Your skin tone changes from season to season so that a shade that looks perfect in the winter will not necessarily work for you in the summer. Also the shade or color of your skin on your arms, hands or legs may be a totally different shade from that of your face or neck. The shade or color on the top and bottom of your arm might be different as well.

What should you do?

You should start with a Customized Six Color Trial Kit. ColorTration is an unbelievably concentrated makeup. We can not stress enough the importance of starting with tiny pin-head size quantities!

First, identify the shade closest to your skin tone. If you are lucky, one color will be a perfect match. If one color is not sufficient then you may have to mix colors. Do not mix colors on your skin, as the first color will set up and not blend with the second color. Instead premix the two colors then apply.

Working with two shades gives you the ability to adjust your ColorTration lighter or darker as your complexion changes.

ColorTration will set quickly if you have not used too much, so setting powder is not necessary and the set will continue to improve the longer it is on. Your coverage will be waterproof and last until you are ready to remove it and then soap and water or any cleanser will remove the product easily.

For vitiligo on parts of the body where rub off or transfer is an issue, such as hands, elbows, knees etc. we recommend ColorTration’s Professional Barrier Spray. To use this product consult directions included with purchase. With this spray the makeup is sealed on and won’t come off until removed with rubbing alcohol.

To apply the makeup on face or body, sweep the makeup over the vitiligo patches in a thin layer.

It will set quickly. If it does not you have most likely used too much. If you have dry skin you may want to slow down the set time by using moisturizer before applying the makeup.

If you want your coverage to be more sheer, you can mix the makeup before applying, with moisturizer. This will thin the makeup to your desired level of coverage. Your favorite moisturizer will probably work well, however some moisturizer brands may not mix well with this makeup and in these cases we recommend ColorTration’s Liposome Moisture Fluid.

You can apply this product with your fingers or better still with a Camouflage Makeup Brush. The brush is about three eighths inch wide and has Taklon fibers. The brush keeps your hands clean, allows for precision application and lays down the right amount of makeup without excessive thickness and waste. This brush can be used for any liquid makeup as well.

Do not use makeup sponges with this makeup as they tend to soak up the makeup instead of applying it. If you are mixing two shades or adding moisturizer, the camouflage brush is excellent for swirling the liquid components together. The brush is easily cleaned with soap or cleanser and hot water and then shaken and blotted dry on a clean paper towel.

Our screw top three compartment Mixing Vial is the best container for blending shades, diluting them with moisture fluid and storing several day’s supply for short trips. Make sure you close them tightly as the makeup will dry up when open to the air.

You may also wish to consider the cost efficiency of ColorTration. Each bottle contains about as much makeup as 25 to 30 sample vials. Since it is so concentrated a bottle can last a long time. A bottle should last three to six months for the typical buyer with vitiligo on their face and body.
