A Tribute To Veil Director Martyn Lewis

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the death of one of our much-loved Directors, Martyn Lewis, who passed away at the weekend following a short illness.

Martyn was a prominent and well-respected advocate of cosmetic camouflage.  For almost four decades he championed the Veil brand.

He was also a passionate supporter of various charities and organisations across the UK including Look Good Feel Better, Changing Faces, the Skin Camouflage Network and the British Association of Skin Camouflage.

Martyn truly loved seeing the positive effect Veil had on people’s lives and he will be sadly missed.

Guest Post: Jo Leversuch MUA – Why I love Veil Cover Cream!

We’re so excited to share a guest post by Jo Leversuch, a professional makeup artist who has worked with many clients around the world. She has worked with models at New York Fashion Week, London Fashion Week and in publications nationally and internationally. 

As a professional makeup artist, one thing I’m often asked is which foundation offers the best long lasting coverage, can even out skin tone and smooth skin imperfections?

I’ve seriously tried and tested many but now I can confidently shout from the rooftops ‘it’s Veil Cover Cream!’

If you’re looking for a full coverage foundation and a flawless finish, Veil Cover Cream is the perfect addition to your everyday makeup. It covers uneven skin tone, blemishes, dark under-eye circles and redness with ease.

The foundation is fun to work with and it’s great for a range of makeup techniques including contouring, highlighting and strobing.

I’ve worked with people with skin conditions that include rosacea, vitiligo, eczema, acne, birthmarks, port wine stains, pigmentation, scars and psoriasis.

Veil Cover Cream is a full coverage foundation that effortlessly covers all of these and the change in people’s confidence when they try it is amazing.

Why do I love it so much I hear you ask? When I first discovered Veil Cover Cream I quickly realised that this is a miracle in a jar, a true hidden gem in the world of foundation.

It offers flawless full coverage, is super lightweight and is the perfect base for any makeup trend.

My first impression was how good the texture is. It’s one of the easiest foundations to apply, with such a creamy, lightweight feel. The versatility of the foundation means it can be applied with brushes, sponges or fingertips.

The fact that you can apply Veil over and over again throughout the day without it leaving a dry, cakey look means it will give you loads of confidence for long lasting coverage.

Every client and model I use Veil on, both male and female, tell me constantly how light it feels on their skin and that it doesn’t feel like they are wearing a foundation. I use Veil to create different looks and I’m amazed every time at how easy and versatile it is.

I’ve used Veil Cover Cream on all skin types, skin colours and skin issues. The looks I create for my clients range from a minimal amount of coverage to full coverage.

The diversity of the colour range means I can use the product for skin coverage, under eye concealers and even to contour the face for a truly modern look.

What are my top tips for applying it? I prefer to use a makeup sponge for a flawless finish, as brushes often leave lines. Start with small applications to the skin first, then build-up more coverage to suit your preferred look.

I’m amazingly proud to be a Veil ambassador and I would highly recommend Veil Cover Cream to everyone. As far as I am concerned it’s a makeup bag must-have as it’s so versatile.
