I work in really hot locations like Miami and Cape Town, so its vital that I use a high sun factor on the models before i apply the foundation. In the past, I’ve used a separate sun protector and foundation but a lot of the time these don’t blend well together.
Dermablend Fluid Corrective Foundation is amazing as it is a 2 in 1 product. It helps protect the models skin against UV rays with SPF35 and the lightweight formula blends into the skin easily creating a flawless finish
When I’m working on catwalk shows, I often have to cover body imperfections on the models such as uneven skin tone, redness, scarring, spots and varicose veins.
I love Dermablends Total Body Foundation as it offers high coverage, buildable and longlasting coverage. I often only have a couple of seconds to apply it to the girls legs, so I apply to the palms on my hands and blend into their legs.
What’s great about it is, that it won’t transfer onto any of the expensive garments when the models are doing their quick outfit changes as it is water, sweat and rub resistant.
The models I work with are constantly travelling around the world which can take its toll on their skin.
Dermablend easily covers skin imperfections such as uneven skin tone, dark circles, spots and redness. It gives amazing coverage without a mask effect and is gentle enough to use on all skin types including sensitive skin as it is Hypoallergenic fragrance and alcohol free.
When I work with actresses for a red carpet/premiere and need to cover a tattoo I use Dermablends long lasting Corrector Stick.
It has the same exceptional coverage but is easy to apply thanks to it's angled and targeted applicator. Soft, smooth texture combined with buildable coverage that lasts up to 14 hours leaving a natural, flawless looking finish.
The Setting Powder ensures a smudge and water resistant finish for up to 16 hours. I love that it is extremely fine in texture and it does not affect the shade of foundation, and provides a matt and natural looking finish and will withhold the scrutiny of the paparazzi lens!
I work with models and actresses of all ethnicity ,and it can be really difficult to find shades that correctly match the skin tone.
I love Dermablends range of colour tones as they blend seamlessly together so I correctly cover any blemishes.
