This week I have done a tutorial on how to cover pigmentation on dark skin. It is always a little tricky this one to get the colours right so you don't see the concealer under your foundation. And also that you don't cake the makeup on the face as you want the skin to look quite natural still but flawless. That's why I like to use a stipple brush to apply the foundation too as you don't drag the brush over the areas you have covered with the foundation, you lightly stipple over them to minimise any layers moving. There are afew brands out there now that have good products for darker skin that conceal well. I have mainly used Laura Mercier for this ' how to ' as the colors matched Jenelle's skin really well. But Mac and Bobbi Brown have a good range of products as well .
Don't be scared to mix the products together either to get the perfect color. Sometimes I use the eye concealer mixed with the foundation and/or secret camouflage ... there really are no rules sometimes, it's whatever works. And big thank you to Jenelle. xx
