Understanding Vitiligo 

We understand that your melanocytes have stopped functioning! What? Vitiligo occurs when the cells responsible for producing skin pigment are destroyed or stopped functioning. The exact cause is not fully understood, but it’s believed to involve a combination of genetic, autoimmune, and environmental factors. 

Vitiligo is not contagious! Did you hear that? Yes, it’s not contagious and can affect people of all ages, races, and genders. While there is no cure, treatments such as topical steroids, light therapy, and skin grafts can help with management and skin appearance. 

Let’s start by prepping the skin before we dive into the makeup! 

Prepping Your Skin


What is cleansing? 

Cleansing is the process of using a cleanser or cleansing product to remove dirt, oil, makeup, and impurities from your skin. It’s an essential part of your skincare routine and helps to keep your skin clean and healthy. Typically, you would wet your face, apply a cleanser, gently massage it, and then rinse it with water. This helps to unclog pores, prevent breakouts, and maintain clear and radiant skin.

  1. Start by washing your face with a gentle, hydrating cleanser that suits your skin type.
  2. Use lukewarm water to avoid stripping your skin’s natural oils.
  3. Gently massage the cleanser onto your face using your fingertips in circular motions.
  4. Rinse thoroughly and pat your face dry with a clean, soft towel.


What is moisturizing? 

Moisturizing your skin involves applying a product, typically a lotion, cream, or oil, to your skin to help maintain or restore its moisture content. This helps to keep your skin hydrated, soft, and supple. Moisturizers work by preventing water loss from the skin and sometimes by adding moisture to it.

  1. Apply a suitable moisturizer for your skin type and concerns.
  2. Moisturizers keep your skin hydrated, preventing makeup from looking dry or flaky.
  3. Focus on areas that tend to be drier, like the cheeks or around the nose.


What is Primer? 

A primer for your face is a cosmetic product applied to your skin before makeup to create a smooth and even base. It helps makeup adhere better, reduces the appearance of pores, fine lines, and wrinkles, and can also control oil or add hydration, depending on the type of primer you choose.

  1. If you prefer using a makeup primer, this is the next step.
  2. Apply a thin layer of primer evenly over your face. 
  3. Primers help create a smooth surface for makeup, minimize pores, and improve makeup longevity.

Now that you’ve finished prepping, let’s get into application techniques. 

How To Apply A Camouflage Concealer 

  • To apply concealer, choose a shade that matches your skin tone or is slightly lighter for under-eye areas.
  • Pat or gently brush concealer onto the imperfections you want to conceal.
  • Use a makeup sponge, brush, or fingertip to blend the concealer into your skin.
  • Blend the edges of the concealer to create a seamless, natural look.

Tips To Use A Camouflage Concealer

  • Less is often more with concealer. Start with a small amount and build up if needed.
  • Use a shade slightly lighter than your skin tone for under-eye concealer to avoid a stark contrast.
  • Set the concealer with a translucent setting powder to prevent creasing and keep it in place.
  • Always choose a concealer that suits your skin type and concerns, such as one formulated for sensitive skin or long-lasting wear.
