Skin Confident was founded by make-up artist and skin camouflage practitioner Babs Forman. After several years of working as a lawyer she decided to follow her dreams to become a make-up artist and retrained for 6 months at the prestigious Delamar Academy at Ealing Studios.
What drove her to set up Skin Confident is her desire to help people. She feels passionately that a person's skin should not affect their quality of life or stop them from doing the things they want to.
Babs spent time at the burns unit of the military hospital in Belgium (where she grew up) after a fire broke out in her house. She saw the devastating effect that burns can have and realised that she could put her skills to good use.
Even during her career as a TV and film make-up artist she saw the profound effect that make-up could have on actors first hand by helping them get into character. She realised the huge effect make-up could have on peoples’ psychology and well-being and that she had the power to make a real difference to people’s lives.
She obtained her official qualification by the British Association of Skin Camouflage (BASC) , of which she is now a proud member, as well as being a member of the Skin Camouflage Network . She is part of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers and the Expert Witness Institute.
Babs feels very strongly about making everybody feel as confident as possible about their skin.
