Camouflage make up is cosmetic cover up with special formula that hides skin conditions and abnormalities. They come in forms of cream, concealer, foundation or powder.
While traditional make up covers minor flaws, camouflage make up has heavier formula, and conceal much more serious problems. These problems include burns, scars, acne and acne scars, discoloration, stretch marks, and even tattoos. People with such skin problems often feel self-conscious in public. With camouflage make up, they are able to hide flaws, look better, and feel confident.
