Other options for skin camouflage

We share a few alternatives to the Changing Faces Skin Camouflage Service, including private skin camouflage, sample kits and high-street makeup.

While our unique Skin Camouflage Service is the only free and specialist service for people affected by visible difference, there are some other options available to you, which you might want to explore.

Private skin camouflage

There are private skin camouflage practitioners around the UK who charge for an appointment and any skin camouflage products they provide. We’ve linked to the websites of some alternative providers below which you can visit for further information.

Please note that we can’t endorse any private practitioner or guarantee the quality of any skin camouflage services offered by others.

Sample skin camouflage products

Sample kits of skin camouflage creams and powders are available at a cost from the following suppliers – these are also the products that our own practitioners use during a Skin Camouflage Service appointment.

We strongly recommend that wherever possible you have a Skin Camouflage Service appointment before ordering and trying these sample kits, as we can help you find the products that best match your skin.

High-street makeup

The skin camouflage brands we use are specifically formulated to last longer and provide heavier coverage. However, you might find an alternative product from a high-street makeup brand that works for you.

If you are using your own products, then take a look at our video series, which will help you to apply skin camouflage cream or makeup at home and provides tips on making the products last as long as possible.

Our Skin Camouflage Service

Our Skin Camouflage Service was closed during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The extended service closure means that we have a significant waiting list in some parts of England, with greater availability in Scotland. However, if you are interested in seeing a practitioner either face-to-face or online, you can register for an appointment:
