As a professional makeup artist I've dealt with many clients who can be extremely insecure about their skin; including acne scars & overall breakouts... and I too suffer from these SAME monthly breakouts that can lead to major scarring! So as time went on, I thought to myself; How can I help? I started searching for the perfect product that could help and to no shock, it didn’t exist. All I could find were products that consistently left my pimples DRY and FLAKEY… the majority even seemed to make my breakouts worse. This happened over and over again, especially when I tried to cover them with makeup!
This is now where Blemish Camouflage came to life! I knew a product was needed that could act as a barrier between a blemish & the makeup applied... BUT it was also very important the product had blemish healing properties too. #LightbulbMoment and if this innovation was really going to help, we knew it needed additional benefits too: such as hydrating the skin (no dry patches), calming the skin (no inflammation) and most of all BRIGHTENING those acne scars.
Well... after extensive research & development, you can now see how far it’s come. One thing you’ll notice is that our product mentions being a 3-in-1... but ohh it’s SO much more :) I just get so excited talking about this. Our handpicked ingredients address all of the skin concerns we as humans face on a daily basis and the added in blemish healing properties will ultimately help make some of your long days more enjoyable with the benefits of clean skin.
So EXCITED to share this product and cannot wait to see all of your results! I most-of-all want you to love it too!
I've always believed in the power of first impressions, especially those inside the finance & banking sector for most my professional life. These first impressions begin at the facial level & most will agree hold tremendous weight in any personal interaction that is genuine.
I remember the story like it was yesterday...
I'm walking into a mid-day meeting and, through the reflection of my phone, I noticed one GIANT red pimple centered on my forehead—I mean this thing was BIG! Fight or Flight moment—I had two choices: (1) Walk into the meeting head high, introducing myself AND my new friend (the BIG pimple) or (2) Quickly find a way to hide it. I chose the 2nd option and immediately sought out a colleague for help. Luckily one colleague had an idea and frantically slapped some coverup/ concealer on me from her purse, concealing it the best she could. Perhaps saving me from any type of teenager flashback humiliation…
Now the GOOD NEWS—the pimple was definitely less noticeable. BAD NEWS—in just a few hours post-meeting after removing the makeup, I noticed it actually turned from bad to worse! I couldn’t believe it, but sitting here today, I now understand why. It was due to a combination not so clean ingredients + an applicator trapping bad bacteria and irritating my skin. AND this is where my ‘entrepreneurial light bulb’ really started to flicker. I started asking myself simple questions like; “What if this happens again?” and “Is there a product out there that covers a pimple, but doesn’t make it worse while wearing it?”. After extensive research, I had the answers—there was not AND this is where Blemish Camouflage was born.
Blemish Camouflage began with the stories above... but it was truly perfected a little bit later in the journey when I met Alexandra Jaye— the Toronto makeup artist to the stars! Alexandra helped expand on the general idea with her vast consumer knowledge on clean ingredients and once our ideas started to merge, we began creating the Blemish Camouflage you see today.
