Camouflage Make Up Course Overview

This course is designed to enable therapists with some experience of make up to offer skin camouflage applications to the public.

Skin Camouflage make-up is a specialised type of makeup application designed to conceal any unwanted skin conditions such as birthmarks, pigmentation (darker or lighter than the surrounding skin) marks, scarring, tatttos, or any skin disfigurement resulting from injury. The make-up used is specifically designed to block out unwanted colour thus allowing the therapist to then introduce natural skin colours with further make-up.

Camouflage make up products are hard wearing and designed to be waterproof; the skill of the treatment is in mixing and matching the products to cover the unwanted mark whilst at the same time matching it to surrounding skin tone.

The face and body can be treated of women, men and children. Eventually most clients are taught how to apply the make-up by the therapist allowing the application to be done at home.

Skin Camouflage Make-up has many applications that the therapist can put into practice from covering up a tattoo on a brides arm for her wedding day, to hide skin blemishes for that special photo shoot. This course covers the use of a variety of specialist camouflage products designed to restore the skin colouration to the surrounding skin tone. This course is designed to enable candidates to offer skin camouflage applications to the public.
