Pigmentation is a “disorder” common across all ethic backgrounds, skin types, skin colours and can be caused by a number of reasons including sun exposure, hormonal changes and genetic conditions.
Varying skin colour from person to person is caused by a pigment in our skin called melanin which is produced by cells in our body called melanocytes. Melanin protects our skin by absorbing damaging UV radiation. Fun in the sun, causes our skin to produce more melanin as a defence mechanism to protect the skin. As melanin production increases, skin darkens.
Types of skin pigmentation include freckles, liver spots, melisma and post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation.
Concealing Pigmentation
For flawless make up a suitable moisturiser for your skin type and primer is essential to give a hydrated and smooth base.
To cover pigmentation, you must colour correct appropriately for example, for dark circles with a blue-ish tone under the eyes, use an orange or peach coloured concealer to counteract the darkness. Patting the product with your finger, sponge or brush to ensure an even application.
For red spots or blemishes you would first need to counteract the redness with a green based concealer, “I find a basic colour wheel really useful to know what colours counteract each other” says Make Up Face Plus Medispa, Make Up Artist Rowena Maree.
Pigmentation Colour Wheel
For a dark brown discolouration, a pink or peach coloured concealer will counteract and brighten the area.
Once you have covered up your pigmentation, apply the concealer that matches your skin tone over the top of the colour corrected area. Blend with your finger, sponge or brush to ensure it doesn’t appear patchy.
For the finishing touch, depending on your preferred finish, you can choose to set with a powder or a foundation for a more dewy finish.
