Just want to share, with those of you who are looking for recommendations for how to cover your port wine stain birthmark, what I have found works the best for me. I have tried lots of different things through the years, and have found that I really don’t like how heavy some concealers and foundations-marketed directly to those of us with PWS-feel on my face especially after a couple hours.
This video simply walks you through my routine of covering my birthmark. I am not very good with video editing, so you will have to forgive me. (Also, I was a little nervous).
Anyway, here is what I use:
-Any moisturizer or foundation primer lotion
-Laura Mercier Mineral Powder w/ SPF 15 in Natural Beige
-Any powdered bronzer or blush
Other things you need/might want to get started:
-Room with natural light
-Robe or button down shirt that you don’t mind getting makeup on
-Larger powder brush
-Small blush brush
-Your choice of eye makeup (optional)
I am always looking for something new to try, so if you have your own suggestions please let me know. I hope this helps!
