SKIN-CAMOUFLAGE
As Founder of Outsidetheboxmakeup.co.uk I have worked on all sorts of makeups, from decorative (beauty and bridal) to fashion, fantasy, film and even drag makeup but my over-riding passion is to help anyone who seeks guidance and product advice on skin camouflage. I specialise in doing makeovers on people of all ages who have skin trauma and or confidence issues. I have a holistic approach to looking good.

My driving passion is the feeling I get when I help clients whose confidence has been affected by how their skin looks. That may be from an inherited birthmark, a skin trauma, acne scarring or simply blemishes and age spots. I am skilled in using all of the main brands available on prescription in the UK (at your Doctor’s discretion) for example dreamland, Dermacolor, Covermark, Keromask and Veil. I have trained at and now work closely with the BASC (British Association of Skin Camouflage)

Realising that once a “skin match’ has been agreed and achieved with the medical cosmetics, there is also sometimes need for more decorative makeup to go on top. In view of this,  I decided create a brand of cosmetics that are 100% natural, non comedogenic and super for sensitive skin. I created my own brand of Outsidethebox mineral cosmetics.

WORKING WITH SKIN CONDITIONS

I have helped clients with Rosacea, Vitiligo, Acne scarring. Hyper/Hypopigmentation, tissue scarring as a result of trauma or surgery, skin grafts, solar lentigo and any sort of blemishes…. Outsidethebox mineral-cosmetics have a special lustre which gives the face a lovely glow, producing a healthy youthful appearance especially to blemishes, aged skin or sufferers of Rosacea.

COVER UPS FOR WEDDINGS

I have also helped Brides, Bridesmaids and Prom Queens who despite having acne blemishes, burns or scarring on their backs have chosen a backless dress for their big occasion. Outsidethebox mineral-cosmetics are non comedogenic. This means it will not clog pores. In both adolescent and adult acne, blocked pores get infected and this is when break outs and black heads are formed. Outsidethebox mineral-cosmetics are healing and give superb coverage which will last all day and into the evening.

TATTOO COVER UPS FOR WEDDINGS

I have helped Brides and Bridesmaids cover tattoos that they still love but don’t want to appear in lifelong photos of their special day as well as do their makeup. Outsidethebox healthy mineral-cosmetics are water based but also can be set with water! I cry at the drop of a hat when things get too emotional, so I can personally testify as to the cosmetics’ longevity despite tears!
SCARRING

Resolve to make a fresh start from whatever has had an effect on our skin is a step in the right direction. However, most conditions can be easily be camouflaged to boost confidence. A one off consultation where I teach you the right colour combinations to cover scarring could be money well spent to help you embrace the future.

OLDER LADIES

As we get older, working women especially, need to feel confident longer. We now need to work to age 66 or 67 until pensions kick in. We need to assert experience over youth as a valuable workplace commodity. I believe Outsidethebox mineral-cosmetics will help you keep great skin for longer. It is not 100% anti-ageing but they do have considerable skin benefits:

WHY OTHER MAKE-UPS MAY NOT BE THE BEST CHOICE IF YOU HAVE SENSITIVE SKIN

Traditional makeup uses preservatives like parabens, chemical dyes (lakes) and fragrances. These can all cause skin irritation. Traditional makeup also contains fillers, which do not enhance the product in any way- they simply add bulk. In our products each ingredient is there for a reason!

WHY USE OUTSIDETHEBOX MAKEUP

Outsidethebox mineral-cosmetics contain no oils, fragrances or preservatives that can aggravate acne prone skin. Mineral-cosmetics are also recommended after plastic surgery!

WHY YOU NEED TO USE OUTSIDETHEBOX MAKEUP

More than 20% of adults are known to suffer from idiopathic urticaria or angieodema at some point in their lives. This means that there is an adverse reaction that presents on the skin which can have weals, blisters, burning or redness which can be hot and itchy. There are different types and these are divided into acute and chronic. It is very debilitating. I have suffered from this and this is why I started looking into different cosmetics. Since changing to Outsidethebox mineral-cosmetics, I haven’t looked back. My skin is better with no indeterminate flareups.

SUNSCREEN TIPS

I firmly believe that to stay out of the sun or if you have to sun worship then use sunscreen! Titanium Oxide and Zinc Oxide are both natural sunblocks. However I always recommend the addition of sunscreen. My further recommendation is that because the powders are so finely milled you mix your favourite concealer or foundation with sunblock and you have a personal sun protection and foundation in one!

WHY USE OUTSIDE THE BOX MAKEUP- PIGMENTS & ALLANTOIN

The fine pure pigments blend easily on the skin and provide natural, flawless cover. Minerals are so pure and gentle you can even sleep in them. I would also recommend my night treatment to help work on those blemishes whilst you sleep!
Outsidethebox mineral concealers contain Allantoin which helps skin heal and regenerate. They also give amazing natural coverage.
WHY USE OUTSIDE THE BOX MAKEUP- VEGANS & WHAT’S INSIDE OUTSIDE THE BOX MAKEUP

If you are vegan,our products are also suitable for you including the mineral lipsticks. These contain no added preservatives too. Vitamin E and Jojoba oil compliment the lavender essential oil..they are so good they may also be used as cream blushers! Our lip glosses are 100% natural, handcrafted and gentle. They contain cold pressed plant waxes and iron oxide pigments. They do not contain questionable ingredients or hidden synthetics.

 

If you suffer with any form of skin trauma or skin condition, or even if you simply seek to do good things for your skin to protect it from life’s process,Outsidethebox healthy mineral-cosmetics will only add to you reaching a stage where you feel better about your skin issue and how it makes you feel….

 

” Not through memories of before,

when I was different and much more

but because I’m made to feel ashamed

it feels as if I should be blamed

for looking as I do today

for making others turn away”

( Abridged from a Poem by Jaimi)
