Skin Confident will teach you how to quickly and easily cover up port wine stains with specialised products that last all day. The biggest problem with port wine stains is often the intensity of colour. Any flesh-toned concealer that you try to use to cover it up can end up looking grey and leaving a 'shadow'. Babs can show you how to use colour correcting principles to knock out the underlying redness or purple, so that the end result is a lot more natural looking.

Skin camouflage products differ from traditional make-up concealer products because they are a lot more pigmented and long-lasting. They were originally designed as a ‘scar crème’ for soldiers having suffered from scarring in WW II to be easy to use and provide full coverage without looking like make-up. Skin Confident works out the best colour match for your skin on the basis of colour theory, using the correct shade to counter-act the dominant colour of your port wine stain, e.g. orange-based products to counter-act purple, yellow-based products to counter-act redness. There are now several different brands offering skin camouflage products and a huge range of shades to choose from to match your skin tone.
As a qualified and experienced make-up artist, Babs can show you how to combine your skin camouflage with every-day make-up to leave you with flawless, beautiful coverage. She can teach you how to accentuate your best features and further draw attention away from your skin.
