Long lasting makeup or skin camouflage is something we all want. The confidence that your camouflage products won’t budge or that your bridal makeup will stay perfect is priceless.
In a recent private consultation I helped a woman conceal a facial scar. One of the challenges we had was getting products to stay-put, be long lasting and conceal her scar.
I developed a number of options for her using both skin camouflage and makeup products. The last step in all of the options was to use a setting spray.
Skin camouflage uses cream concealers and setting powders specially designed to make the camouflage last all day and be both waterproof and smudge-proof. Skin camouflage already has great built-in staying power. This is one of its benefits over beauty makeup.
Dermacolor Fixing Spray
To make skin camouflage even more long lasting, a setting spray can be applied over the top of the concealer cream and setting powder. Dermacolor Fixing Spray is a favourite among many skin camouflage practitioners. It is very effective when applied to areas of the body – arms, legs, stomach for example.The problem is when it comes to the face because this setting spray is both an aerosol and a solvent and so is not advisable to use it on the face. *
Urban Decay All Nighter Long Lasting Makeup Setting Spray
Whether you are a skin camouflage or makeup user, the new generation of setting sprays will add a long lasting dimension to your look. They are designed to be used on the face. My favourite is Urban Decay’s All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray which holds makeup in place for up to 16 hours. It is oil and paraben free with a pump action which sprays a fine mist over the face. I use for my bridal makeup as well as skin camouflage on the face.
