Does anyone know of a good concealer to cover pigmentation on face, one that is not too heavy and looks natural not caked on but still gives good coverage.

one is obvious...mineral makeup. I have red spots on my face...particularly nose and cheeks, and all i do is put a couple layers of it on the areas and you wouldn't even know I was wearing makeup. I prefer it because it doesn't do anything to irritate my skin or cause anymore reddness. Another suggestion is MAC Select cover-up...its a tiny concealer tube, but being that i have very dry skin, you can tell when i wear it. I use it for small imperfections on my legs and other areas of the body. Works lovely:)

Hey Sassyred, thanks for the tip. I'm always in the market for a good concealer! I was just at the website and I'm considering getting the sample kit. What is the texture like? Would you recommend this for dark undereye circles?

purpleturtle, I also use layering technique with mineral makeup. Works like a charm on most days but some days you just can't win with angry red marks Mad

lorrapaw, if you get a good color match you won't need to apply a lot - this decreases the chances of caking or a heavy look. Sample, sample, sample! Also, certain tints will work better than others depending on the color of your pigmentation. For example, I have warm undertones and a yellow tint works well on red blotches. HTH

I'd also say mineral makeup but I thought I'd mention that I recently covered up a very bad bruise on someone's face with my JI Disappear and it looked *very* natural.

I'd hope that mineral make-up could do it....for more intense coverage I'd use something like warmed-up Dermablend. If you go this route, moisturize well and use a silicone-based primer prior to app to help the product to "float" on the skin. I think that the ones that give the best coverage are, unfortunately, more difficult to work with..but used properly, they are, IMHO, very effective.
Good Luck!

hi,

Colortrations is very similiar to Dermablend but I think it has more slip to it and it is a liquid. It covers everything, birth defects, tatoos... It dries quickly so move fast and you ONLY need such a tad amount of it, a teeny tiny bit goes a long way so start off conservative. It will last forever.

When I had dark circles I used a couple things (one because I was always testing products back then) Blue Blocker by silkskin.com is great! for disfusing the dark color then you can use whatever concealer you own over it OR Colortrations will definitely cover the dark. I even used this for foundation one day and your face is perfect, almost too much so, great for photos or such. hth Smile

I use Jane Iredale's Camouflage, it's oil-free, silicone based and dries almost immediately to a water-proof finish. It cover extremely well and I like that it's oil-free. I use it when I want 'perfect' skin but not too often cause it doesn't come off very easily.

Hi Sassyred, thanks for your response Smile Dermablend intimidates me coz I associate it with heaviness and a mask effect. Dunno why, I've never tried it. Colortrations sounds a lot lighter so its definitely a must try for me. Oh and since I seem to have extra of whatever gene it is that predisposes people to obsessively test products you know I'm trying the Blue Blocker too! Laughing Thanks for pointing me in this direction Smile
