After looking on YouTube, I noticed the lack of tutorials on how to cover hyperpigmentation. So, I decided to film one.
My Aunt has suffered with it really bad since she fell pregnant, and struggles to cover it up with high-street makeup products.
Granted camouflage makeup isn’t as cheap as drugstore concealers, but it’s well worth the purchase if you do suffer with pigmentation, especially on the face.
Using camouflage makeup will give you the confidence to go out in public without the fear of people staring at you.
This is a ‘before & after’ of my Aunt after filming the tutorial. It’ll be live on my channel next week - www.youtube.com/smiles2310
The key product I used here was Dermacolour foundation (used in the same way as a concealer)
This product will cover everything from pigmentation to tattoos.
It needn’t be heavy as you can also purchase Derma Fluid which sheers the product down - meaning it won’t compromise the pigment of the makeup but instead it’ll become thinner, feeling less heavy when applied on the skin.
Used alone, it does need a little warming up first; I do this by applying it to the back of my hand & then on the skin pigmentation.
*Bright Neon Lips*
I created these using Kryolan Aqua Colour Liquid.
Fantastic under UV lighting.
These are SO bright they look stuck on.
Blue Ombré Lips
To achieve this look;
*Colour entire lip surface using NYX jumbo pencil in Milk (any White kohl pencil will do)
* Use Dark Orchid Cream Liner (Purple) to line the lips and the outer 3rd of the lip circumference.
* Below that purple, pat on Aqua Cream Liner (Blue) and fade off towards the White.
Simple and easy to achieve!

I love these lipstains.. These can be worn alone, or under a lipstick that matches your lipstain. It will work as a base for your lipstick, aid longevity of its wear AND leave your lips with a stain of colour should your lipstick wear off after a few hours.

For a lot of my creative makeup looks I use products from professional makeup brand, Kryolan.
I purchase their products from Charles Fox in Covent Garden, London. Here are three makeup palettes; Supracolor, Aqua Paints & Body Illusion Paints.
The illusion paints are activated by alcohol - I use IPA when using these.
When using the Supracolor cream palletes, I use a buffing brush to work it into the skin. These are super pigmented and full coverage, so buffing it in is essential for a great flawless finish.
And when using the Aqua Colour paints, I like to add a touch of water & mix them to a thick creamy consistency in order to get a nice coverage & pigment pay-off.

So here is the makeup I created today. You may have seen the design I created on photoshop yesterday, its very similar. I adapted a couple of bits to suit lighting etc, but overall I think I met the ‘Gothic’ brief!
I used Kryolan supracolor team with Dinair airbrush as the base.
Abschminke by Kryolan is THE BEST makeup remover I have ever used!
There is nothing it can’t tackle when it comes to makeup product removal.
Abschminke is an ointment based remover that you simply swipe it over your makeup, then remove using a cotton pad. In doing so, it takes the makeup it with it in one go!
I always use a water proofing liquid mixed in with my gel liner, and it’s a real pain to remove with regular facial wipes or cleaners. But Abschminke literally lifts it off without any hassle, so no rubbing of your delicate eye area, just a gentle wipe with a soft cotton pad!
This is ideal for my models after I’ve put their skin through its paces when using thick water proof products. No-one wants to go around with red sore skin and patches of smudged waterproof mascara.
It’s not dear for the size you get, so I would recommend it to anyone who wears or uses hard to remove makeup products.
