♥ How Hollywood hides blemishes by Maurice Stein

Hi all, I read this article in a book named 'The Doctor's Book of home remedies'. It is a wonderful guide to treat simple illness at home. 
Acne is a problem for many. Everyone has atleast has a skin problem like blemishes, dark spots, etc. But how come we never see pimples, blackheads, whiteheads on the faces of stars? And why is that? Don't they folks break out? We know they do. But how do they hide them? Hollywood Make up artist Maurice Stein says about that. Maurice Stein has been a makeup artist for over 25 years and he's touched up the famous faces in such movies as M*A*S*H, Funny Girl and Planet of the Apes.



Stein has used the few combat tips from the Hollywood trenches on "some of the most expensive faces in the world." 
Go under cover: You can totally block out the discolouration, whether it is pink, red or purple. To do that, a person should look for a foundation makeup that has a high pigment level. The more the pigment per ounce, the better chance there is of putting the product on this and still getting good coverage. He says, "when I cover a pimple on an entertainer's face, I look for a pigment level of 50-70 percent. The normal range for most foundation is around 15-18 percent."

Take care
