The History Of Veil Cover Cream Skin Camouflage Makeup
Did you know Veil Cover Cream has been around since 1952? Originally Veil Cover Cream was created to conceal post-operative scars after Mr Thomas Blake, our founder, was asked to formulate a cover cream by a pioneering plastic surgeon. Before going on general sale in 1952, Veil Cover Cream was first used by “The Guinea Pigs Club” at East Grinstead. The Guinea Pig Club was a social club and support group for British and allied aircrew who had been injured in World War II. Back then there were just three shades of Veil Cover Cream, Natural, Medium and Dark but despite this Veil Cover Cream was an immediate success in the then new field of remedial camouflage makeup.
Veil Cover Cream then began developing new colours. During this time the shades Brown and Yellow were created and over the years more shades were added to the range, giving us the 40+ shade range that we have today to match a wide variety of skin tones. Unfortunately in 1979 Mr Thomas Blake sadly passed away but to this day we still use the same manufacturing process created by the forward thinking chemist. All our products are made by hand and potted by hand here in the United Kingdom using simple British sourced raw materials.
Nowadays a whole variety of people from all around the world use Veil Cover Cream to conceal skin blemishes and to boost their confidence. Veil Cover Cream can hide Birthmarks, Scars, Rosacea, Vitiligo, Pigmentation Marks, Acne, Redness, Spots, Dark Circles, Veins, Discoloration, Broken Capillaries, Eczema, Tattoos and more.

Veil Cover Cream is also popular with makeup artists and cosmetic enthusiasts who use our products on brides, models and day to day clients.
