Skin Confident

Skin Confident

Skin Confident was founded by make-up artist and skin camouflage practitioner Babs Forman. She initially qualified as a solicitor and practiced law in the City. However, after several years in the profession she decided to follow her dreams to become a make-up artist and retrained for 6 months at the prestigious Delamar Academy at Ealing Studios.

Babs had always been fascinated by the transformational qualities of make-up, and camouflage in particular. This interest was kindled in particular by a stint in the burns unit of the military hospital in Belgium (where she grew up) after a fire broke out in her house. Although her remaining scars are minor and she does not camouflage her scars herself, she saw the devastating effect that some burns had on other patients and realised that there was a need for help.

Even during her career as a TV and film make-up artist she saw the profound effect that make-up could have on actors first hand by helping them get into character. She realised the huge effect make-up could have on peoples’ psychology and well-being and that she had the power to make a real difference to people’s lives.

She thereafter obtained her official qualification by the British Association of Skin Camouflage (BASC) , of which she is now a proud member, as well as being a member of the Skin Camouflage Network .

Babs feels very strongly about making everybody feel as confident as possible about their skin.
