My Favorite Makeup (That Also Matches Your Fitzpatrick Type)
By Stephanie Smith
In my studio, I usually complete a glowing facial treatment by applying a mineral BB cream. I Conceal by IMAGE Skincare is my favorite. It is a mineral makeup base that is packed with Vitamin C, peptides, and hyaluronic acid, so it’s like a skin treatment, makeup and SPF 30 all in one.
It will not clog your pores or cause acne; in fact, it will balance and clear your skin! It has wonderful buildable coverage and a natural hydrating finish that is not heavy.
A great aspect of this makeup is that the colors are neutral and the shades are based on blending perfectly with your skin’s Fitzpatrick type. Follow the Image Skincare guide below to learn which color is for you!
“Pale skin that is easily burned by the sun. These individuals usually have red hair and freckles, while some have blonde hair and blue eyes. Those in this category are at high risk for skin cancer. I Conceal makeup in Porcelain is the best match for these skin tones.”
Fitzpatrick 2 & 3
“Individuals who have type 2 or 3 skin have blue or green eyes. Type 2 skin tends to burn easily, while those with type 3 skin are more likely to tan in the sun. People with type 2 skin may develop scars if they spend too much time in the sun and may be slow to heal, while type 3 skin types are less at risk for vascular damage. I Conceal foundations in Natural and Beige, respectively, are recommended for these skin types.”
“Type 4 skin is darker and tends to scar easily. Individuals with this skin type have rich brown hair and green, hazel or brown eyes. I Conceal Foundation in Suede is the most suitable match for this skin type.”
“Those with Type 5 skin have black or brown hair and eyes of the same color. These individuals are very unlikely to burn in the sun. However, those with type 5 skin are very prone to keloid scarring. Toffee is the I Conceal Foundation best suited for Type 5 skin.”
“Finally, people with Type 6 complexions have black or dark brown hair and dark eyes. Their skin may never burn in the sun. While Type 6 skin is prone to keloid scarring as well, these individuals are at very low risk for pigmented skin issues caused by the sun. The I Conceal that matches best with Type 6 skin is Mocha.”
The I Conceal Foundation collection is available at my studio and in my web store.
