I had the pleasure of testing a new camouflage product produced by Varama.
Doing a Beauty Therepy course meant we learnt about many skin conditions and how to camouflage some such as Vitiligo or Chloasma and even tattoos.
As I explain in the video the method I was taught involved more colours and products and a more in depth knowledge of application. Varama makes it easy for even a total make-up novice. It also means men feel more comfortable using just a couple of colours, as some still see it as applying make-up.
In the video I show you how I cover my tattoo and conceal under my eyes. I also demonstrate how the product is waterproof and in this post show you how I concealed a tattoo on dark skin.
Varama's system is easy to use as you choose your ethnic group then your colouring within that group. For example I chose white then medium. I do look very pale in the video but I'm not that pale in reality. I have a fair bit of yellow in my skin although I am pale so I like that they don't just assume pale skins have pink undertones.
With your colouring you will get a colour dropper which is an intensely pigmented cream to create an exact match of your skin.
To get that match you mix the shade closest to your skin colour with a deeper shade to create the warmth then add a tiny amount of the drop in to get the undertone you need.
Varama has made this so simple, you use the same method for covering everything regardless of the colour of the mark your trying to hide. I covered mine and my partners tattoo using my colourings and it worked great although I needed the darker cream to get an ideal match for the dark skin. However I was just testing if a dark tattoo on dark skin would cover well.
You can see how this needs more red and a deeper brown for an exact colour however the effect is clear.
Im quite lucky I don't have serious dark circles but I still like to cover the ones I have. This is the most effective coverage for under the eyes I have ever used. It is creamy enough not to drag, opaque enough to make you look like you've had amazing sleep but dewy enough to look like skin.
Use like any normal concealer just get a match by mixing the colours, I applied this on top of my foundation so you could see the effect properly but ideally I would use this under my foundation so it's not too contrasting.

Opinion.Fantastic product made for use by men, women and children (of a certain age)
Easy to use, great to take on holiday to cover scars or marks as its waterproof and brilliant for building people confidence if their skin conditions let have them feeling down.
Also great as a foundation or concealer.
All round thumbs up, a kit booster for MUA's.
YouTube video will be up soon, it's a little long so I have had to chop it down into 2 parts!
