Cover Up!

Concealer and foundation can subtly even out skin tone and texture, counter-acting the temporary appearance-related effects of cancer treatment, while powder is used to set the foundation.


  • Starting at your inner eye and working outward toward the iris, apply dots of concealer under eye using a clean ring finger or a disposable wedge makeup sponge.
  • With your finger or sponge, using a gentle feathering motion, blend concealer to outer eye corner and up to lash line.
  • Concealer can also be applied to eyelids to even out any changes in pigmentation.



  • Cancer treatment can alter your skin colour, so you may need to use a new shade of foundation. When shopping, test possible shades on your jawline in daylight to get a good match.
  • With clean fingers or a wedge makeup sponge, apply dots of foundation to forehead, nose, chin and cheeks, then blend outward and downward from the centre of your face to the edge. Blend well at hairline and jawline.
  • For sheer coverage, apply foundation with a damp makeup sponge.



  • Using a clean cotton ball, lightly dust loose translucent powder over the centre of your face.
  • Gently sweep downward and outward to remove excess and to smooth any facial hair.
  • Carry pressed powder for touch-ups.

“In addition to helping to diminish dark under-eye circles, concealer can also hide broken capillaries and facial blemishes.”
