Learn the Camouflage Makeup Technique


Many women with scleroderma may feel self-conscious about changes to their skin, particularly on their faces. They’ll often apply makeup to try and cover up any changes without realizing that they might need to adopt a new technique. In this video from Scleroderma SC, makeup artist David Nicholas demonstrates some makeup techniques for women with scleroderma.

Makeup artist Vivian Stephens shares some of her tips for looking after scleroderma skin.  

The demonstration was held at the Scleroderma Conference in Boston in August 2010 and Nicholas explains ways for women to hide skin pigmentation using different shades of foundation, making their lips look fuller, and how to match up their skin color when choosing foundation.

    Thank You for the attempt to help those of us with Scleroderma.
    For whatever reason, the video is a dark, washed=out yellow tint, so there is no way to see what this kind makeup-artist is actually doing–nor a way to see any before or after results as he is applying the makeup.
    People like myself who know nothing about makeup also need the closed captioning because I have no idea what he is talking about at times.
    Thank You.
