The Dermablend Skin Perfector Blemish and Oil Clearing Primer is a really light formula I use just a drop and it covers my whole face and absorbs instantly.Well let me tell you ladies and gents it does more than just banish shine, I am most impressed how much clearer my skin is. I have been using it daily before my makeup for two weeks and I love the results.

My skin stays smooth and oil free ALL DAY and I mean completely oil free. But my favorite part is how great my skin feels and looks. Any little blemishes have cleared up since I started using the primer and instead of my usual monthly breakout.. nada! This multi tasker is definitely worth buying if you struggle with oily or combo skin. You will love how it disappears into your skin but keeps your makeup and face looking good and shine free and the long term clear skin results… amazing!

Summer Makeup Q&A with Jose Parron

During the summer months, heat, sweat and humidity can wear you down, but it can also leave you looking like a melty mess.  Makeup Artist Jose Parron answers all your questions and provides helpful pointers to keep you looking fresh during the hot summer months!

Q: Is it safe to wear makeup at the beach?

A: As long as your makeup has a sufficient SPF for the time you are spending at the beach or pool, it is safe to wear makeup in the sun.  For extended stays, you might want to consider a higher SPF under your foundation.

 Q: How can I assure that my makeup stays on during humid weather?

A: Using a foundation like Dermablend Smooth Indulgence Foundation SPF 20, will ensure that you have a lightweight texture product that can perform in any extreme situation—not just when it’s humid, but even while perspiring.

Q: I have a birth mark on my leg, what is the best way to cover this on the beach? 

A: Marks on the body are a concern for many, particularly at the beginning of the summer when people feel pale and blotchy.  A quick application of Dermablend Leg and Body Cover SPF 15,can help conceal your birthmark, while covering other problem areas, such as bruises and veins.  Simply match the Leg and Body Cover to your skin tone and then apply it to already moisturized skin in short up and down strokes, let dry for five minutes and set with Dermablend Setting Powder.

 Q: How can I maintain a sun-kissed look without exposing myself to the sun? 

A:  Many of my clients like the look of a healthy glow, but fear the risk of exposing skin to the sun’s harmful rays. Using a sheer application of Dermablend Leg and Body Cover SPF 15, in a shade darker than your own skin tone, will give the illusion of sun-kissed legs, while helping to evenly cover imperfections.  Then apply Dermablend Setting Powder, let it set for a few minutes,and you can dance or workout without the fear of it coming off or staining your favorite shorts or sundress.

 Q: I have a formal event this summer and would like to conceal a visible tattoo. What is the easiest way to ensure my tattoo is covered?

 A: Dermablend has an easy fix to cover tattoos without taking drastic measures. Apply Dermablend Tattoo Primer directly on tattoo to help enhance wearability and texture. Next, cover your tattoo with Dermablend Leg and Body Cover SPF 15 and lastly, set with Dermablend Setting Powder. The three-step system allows for 16 hours of smudge-resistant, long-lasting wearability.

Dermablend’s shocking new commercial!

Model “Zombie Boy” (real name Rick Genest) allowed Dermablend to cover his entire body with their tattoo concealor, and, well, the results are shocking!

Zombie Boy is a male model, and music video star (he starred in Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” video).

It’s a great commercial, if you ask me. When the video started, I had no idea he had all those tattoos under there!

PS: Isn’t it kind of sad he covered his body in all that ink? He’s actually really cute when it’s all covered up!
