Good morning everyone. It’s been rather eventful over here at Daily Dimmick. Last week I was hit with an allergic reaction and I broke out in hives. So in great Daily Dimmick style I couldn’t help but jump onto what to do when such things hit us from out of the blue and what cosmetic’s fixes would help cover it up. Despite the fact that I’m not that shy and carry myself with confidence it was quite difficult to take myself out into the world looking like this. I was truly surprised by the knock to my confidence. Surely if this is something that had such an adverse effect on me there must of course be many of you out there who might have the same internal reaction that I experienced.
I took this photo before I applied the primer and makeup and I have to say when I first saw this photo I felt embarrassed and ashamed to publish it. I began to think of what all of you would think. “Ewww, how gross” or “OMG he’s dirty, doesn’t take care of himself”. I even thought I might do a little retouching so it didn’t look so bad. As soon as I had that thought it was very apparent that I must not waiver from my primary purpose. To show you that beauty isn’t about perfection. We are all fallible and susceptible to being human.
Using Laura Mercier’s primer and Secret Camouflage concealer I was able to cover up the redness while maintaining a natural quality, without it looking heavy or mask like. How did I actually do this you ask? Well sit back, get comfortable and let me show you how to cover it up Daily Dimmick style.
