make up

Natural make-up products are great although I have yet to find one that will give me the coverage that  I need. However my go to brand to cover a lupus butterfly rash is Dermablend.

You can visit their site by clicking on the brand name. I don’t get any kickbacks, I am also not an affiliate for this company. The link will take your directly to the Dermablend website.

Dont forget to test the product on a small area of your skin before you cover your face. This is just in case you are allergic which can happen with any make-up, but better safe that sorry I always say.

Dermablend Smooth Indulgence Foundation

This is the first product that I use to cover my butterfly rash.

You take a little bit on a brush and pat it on your face where you have the redness. You can use as much as you need.

Go under your eyes, around your nose, and then cover your other cheek just as you did the other side.

Just pat it on there and smooth it out as much as you can.

Cover your forehead and work it all the way up to your hairline.

Dermablend Cover Cream

For the tougher spots I use Dermablend Cover Cream.

I use a smaller brush so I can zone in on those really tough places. This will also warm up your skin a bit.

If you have dark circles under your eyes be sure to get them when you cover those problem areas.

If you need to blend more just pull out your sponge and blend till your little heart is content.

Don’t smear the make-up you would be destroying all the hard work you have done so far.

DermaBlend Setting Powder

So after you have your make-up where you are happy you are going to want to use the Dermablend Setting Powder.

It works like magic I swear.

Pat all over your face, pat, pat, pat.

Look More Natural

So to make your make-up look more natural, use your favorite bronzer.

You want to use it on the outsides of your face. You also want to put it down you nose and on the sides of your nose.

It adds more color to your face and make you look more natural.

Then you want to use your favorite blush.

You want to put it on the apples of your cheeks, and out and up.

This will help cover up any redness that may be left over, and  go over your face with a shimmering powder like the one from bare minerals.

Yay we are all finished, congrats!!
