1 Makeup as a means for lighter skin on Mon Mar 15, 2010 3:18 pm

Has anyone considered using foundation as a means for achieve lighter skin?

I have, mainly becuase I'm on a TIGHT budget.

I tried using 4% Hydroquinone that I bought from an online store. I used it for about 4 days becuase it started to give me acne. So I didn't see any results becuase it was too soon to tell. But the thing is I'm on a budget and I don't have that much money to spend paying for all the HQ, and using creams like that and staying out of the sun at all times. Because If I get in the sun my skin will darken and ruin a lot of hard work.

So what I wanted to do instead was just put on makeup whenever I please and where ever I please to get the desired look and color I want. Plus I don't have to worry about staying out of the sun or wearing sunblock.

So I wanted to just use foundation as a means to have lighter skin.

I have seen it done before to give it a really natural look, I think theres a technique you use to make it look as natural as possible. I would think using one that is a color stay kind may also be best so that it won't rub off. Are you using retina with your hydroquinone? Because it's probably coming from the retina since most people experiences this due to all of the oil and dirt trapped under the skin is now being pushed to the surface and one of the ways is through acne. Which is normal, it's just cleansing your pores and should improve in the next few weeks.

You may want to consider a concealer that "corrects" the areas you want, compared to powder and foundation can someimes look heavy and noticeable. depending what brand you use.

apply after cleaning your face, an oil-free/ alcohol-free toner is a good idea too you can get from any store. then your sunblock or sunscreen, whichever one you use. you can apply your concealer with a makeup brush or paint brush about the same size and rub it in a little with your finger. But, if a spot is open or was bleeding, don't try to cover it until it closes because it will be even more obvious and make it look worse.

you have to use the color that matches your skin perfectly so that people can't notice it. Theres dermabrand, sephora, and clinique I know have good brands or this. you can also look around walgreens or walmart, they'll usually have some to choose from too.

KB50MJ,
so have you actually tried this method? Just curious to know how you maintain it. What about smudging / smearing? It does seem like a lot to worry about, especially if your natural colour starts peeking through.

if you do try it, test it out at home first and see if you can get one that's more smudge-proof..although this isnt a 100% method. I wear foundation on very very special occasions because each night you'll have to really wash it off.

I sometimes use a little concealer to hide my acne scars on my face at least until the scars fade away. it does the job in the mean time.

Whatever makeup you decide to go with try matching it to the lighter areas of your body ie. your neck. I love MAC cosmetics they have some really good powder.

Hi Pinkmoscato, welcome to the club..lol. True, concealer can work nicely in covering shadows underneath the eyes. Unfortunate for me, I dont like wearing foundaion or concealers much. But, I love eyeliner.

Well whenever you take a bath put some lemon juice in it it lights your skin but it will take some time to do it.Also milk apparently has some bleaching thing in it that also is good for your skin.

BTW if you go to the chemist they have a creams that remove brown scar marks on your skin and apparently they are sometimes used to bleach your skin .
