Makeup artists all swear by camouflage makeup for its versatility. Thanks to its high concentration of colour pigments, you can create all sorts of makeup looks with camouflage, with coverage varying from light to strong.  

In our camouflage makeup tips, we show you how to apply camouflage makeup like a pro. 

Light finish

If you’re looking for lighter coverage, pick up the camouflage makeup directly from the pan with a makeup brush.  

Strong coverage

Scoop some camouflage makeup out of the pan with the camouflage spatula and spread it on the back on your hand to warm it up slightly. This gives it a silky texture. Next, pick up the pigments from the back of your hand with a makeup brush. 

Expert tip 

Camouflage makeup is made of waxes and intense colour pigments. When it comes to getting different types of coverage, a general rule is that camouflage with a firmer texture will leave you with a lighter finish, since you pick up fewer colour pigments on the brush. The softer the texture, the more intense the coverage will be.

How to 

Step 1: Applying camouflage
