Makeup for Uneven Skin Tone
Are There Any Foundations to Even Out Mottled Skin?
Are you looking for makeup for uneven skin tone? Well, you’re not alone………Few women have perfect skin. Whether it's from hormones, aging, skin damage, acne, rosacea………finding makeup to cover molted skin is not easy.
Your best bet is a full coverage loose mineral makeup with deep pigmentation. But, one that is still sheer and natural looking with a healthy glow. Also, it's a good idea to find one that's water resistant and smudge proof – you don't want uneven spots exposed when sweating, swimming, or sporting.
And, with mineral makeup, you won't have to worry about finding the best face powder to reduce shine – the loose mineral takes care of that too.
When selecting makeup for skin pigment problems, look for loose mineral foundations because they tend to blend effortlessly and really even out skin tone. A really nice silky textured foundation is excellent if you have fine lines or wrinkles too and works equally well on oily or dry skin.
A great product to consider is Simply Karen Mineral-Foundation. Her line of foundations are excellent for troubled skin like rosacea and acne – and helps cover uneven tone, redness, scars, hyperpigmentation, and blotches due to chemical peels or other light cosmetic procedures.
And, most importantly, they're anti-inflammatory, which is also important for any complexion issues or problems like rosacea.
How To Even Out Skin Tone
Many women have probably tried mineral makeup foundation, but find it difficult to use - getting the right amount on the brush is probably the hardest to master……which is why it's a good idea to consider a new foundation – a powder pump brush.
It's so simple, just pump the brush a few times, then dot the brush on your chin, cheeks and forehead and swirl and buff all over your face and neck.
It covers so nicely and leaves your complexion with an incredible glow that stays put until you wash it off….no matter how hot or humid the weather is. And speaking of hot weather, this mineral foundation contains SPF 15, so you won't need to apply any greasy, sticky sunscreens. Fast and quick.
Skin Pigment Problems
If you have large hypo-pigmented spots (loss of skin pigment), melasma, port wine stains, dark acne scars, or serious molted skin pigment problems, you might want to consider applying a mineral concealer to uneven spots before sweeping on the mineral foundation.
For best results the concealer should be one or two shades lighter than the foundation shade, and is best applied slowly and in several layers until you achieve an even appearance. For hypo-pigmented spots, use a concealer closer to your natural complexion tone.
Next, apply shake your brush pump, tap on to the three main areas of the face and just sweep, buff and blend………..until you tone is smooth and even. There is no need for a sunscreen or setting powder to prevent shine or set the makeup, because it's all in the mineral foundation. It can't get any more easier than that!
