Q: How is CM-Beauty different from other "concealers"?

A: The term "concealer" is often misused by cosmetic companies. Their products are usually made to be sheer, while ideal for skin with a few blemishes, there are not generally effective in actually concealing problem skin flaws.

Our products are better classified as Medical Makeup. Medical makeup is a new term that refers to cosmetics that are specifically designed to treat a variety of conditions while also providing aesthetic benefits.

CM-Beauty, the original "concealment" company, and the only makeup ever granted an U.S. patent.. Our products contain an extraordinarily high level of pigment to ensure complete coverage and effective corrective action.

While most concealment products contain between 7 and 10 percent pigment, CM-Beauty is highly opaque. There is approximately 40 percent in Classic Cover and 30 percent pigment in Face Magic and Leg & Body Magic. The layering of coloring provides absolute concealment of flaws, whether minor or extreme.

Q: Why are there different CM-Beauty foundations?

A: Each foundation addresses a unique concealment need.
Face Magic is very easy to apply, extra creamy, formulated for the face, and conceals a large percentage of problems. For example rosacea, acne, bruising, etc.

Classic Cover offers maximum coverage for those imperfections most difficult to hide like major birthmarks, vitiligo, burns, etc.

Leg & Body Magic requires no finishing powder to provide a long-lasting, smudge-resistant finish, and it is formulated to work best on the hands, the legs, and other parts of the body.

Q: Why do Face Magic and Leg & Body Magic have SPF sun protection , but not Classic Cover?

A: Face Magic offers a high SPF 20 while Leg & Body Magic features an SPF 16 for complete protection against the sun and other environmental elements. Classic Cover, however, is already so opaque it provides a barrier to the sun with no additional SPF ingredients necessary.

Q: I have sensitive skin. Can I use it, too?

A: CM-Beauty products are recommended by dermatologists because they are safe and effective. Unlike other concealment products, they do not contain alpha hydroxy acids or glycolic acids that may be irritating to sensitive skin.

Q: Is there a shade for every skin color?

A: CM-Beauty offers a wide range of skin tones to offer skin perfect coverage to many. If you are hard to match, we recommend blending two of our shades to create your own "custom" shade. Our professional staff can help you make the right choice. In addition to a wide selection of shades, we offer a white "primer" shade which may be mixed with other shades, or used underneath other makeup to lighten severe discolorations or under eye circles.

Q: Can any makeup be used over Classic Cover, Face Magic or Coverstik?

A: Yes. After it has set, any other makeup may be applied, and it even helps it last much longer than usual.

Q: Why is it important to use a waterproof/water-resistant foundation?

A: Properly applied, our makeup will last all day. If you wear CM-Beauty concealment, nothing, including weather or even perspiration will disturb your perfect appearance.

Q: Why is it important to wear a Finishing Powder?

A: Finishing Powder not only seals and sets makeup, it will absorb all excess surface oil throughout the day. CM-Beauty's Finishing Powder is finely milled so it's extra absorbent, essential to seal the makeup for a flawless looking appearance.

Q: You recommend using Hydrating Base with Camellia. Why?

A: Because it was specificly formulated the work with our foundations. Although any water-based moisturizer will work, NEVER use a oil-based moisturizer with our foundations as they will not adhere to your skin.

Q: How can I remove waterproof makeup?

A: Our Waterproof Makeup Remover is specially formulated to dissolve makeup so that it can be removed easily by gently wiping with a tissue. Our foundations, because they are waterproof, will be resistant to soap and water and require more time and effort to completely remove.

Q: What is Medical Makeup ?

A: Medical makeup is a new term that refers to cosmetics that are specifically designed to treat a variety of conditions while also providing aesthetic benefits. Products are designed to treat conditions such as birth marks, scars from surgery, rosacea, vitiligo,acne, bruising, skin cancers and those with sensitive skin.

Q: Why is Titanium dioxide used in our foundations?

A: In cosmetic and skin care products, titanium dioxide is used as a pigment, sunscreen and a thickener. As a pigment it is used for its UV resistant properties. Titanium dioxide is found in almost every sunscreen with a physical blocker because of its high refractive index, its strong UV light absorbing capabilities and its resistance to discolouration under ultraviolet light. This advantage enhances its stability and ability to protect the skin from ultraviolet light. Sunscreens designed for infants or people with sensitive skin are often based on titanium dioxide, because they cause less skin irritation than chemical UV absorbering ingredients.
